This is the penultimate weekend of action before the K League 1 Summer break, and things are still wide open at both the top and bottom of the league. The game of the week looks to between out-of-form Jeonbuk Hyundai and in-form Daegu FC on Sunday. Also look out for the South-East derby between league leader Ulsan Hyundai and fifth placed Pohang Steelers. Whilst down in the K2 can Bucheon 1995 produce a shock against big spending Daejeon Hana?

FC Seoul, Seongnam FC and Chungnam Asan all return to action this weekend following two weeks off.

Once again like previous rounds a small number of fans will be in attendance at most of the games, and of course they are required to follow strict rules due to covid19.
