Off the field things aren’t great here in South Korea due to the previous beginnings of a second wave of covid, however the football continues. Sadly fans won’t be able to attend many of the games this coming weekend for obvious reasons.

The key game at the top features defending champ Jeonbuk Hyundai and high flying surprise package Sangju Sangmu. Whilst at the bottom, slowly improving Incheon United look to drag visitors Suwon Bluewings into this seasons relegation battle.

Taking a look at the second tier off-form league leaders Suwon FC hosting in-form Seoul E-Land stands out.
