Preview: K League Classic Round 13


The last round of fixtures before the international break sees ten of the twelve Classic sides in action, including current Korean FA Cup winners Suwon Bluewings who face the reigning Asian Champions League winners Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors on Saturday. Depending on what happens in said game in Jeonju, Pohang, who have quietly gone about their business this season, could go top of the league providing that the North Gyeongsang Province-based outfit see off the challenge of Gangwon FC on Saturday. 

A guide to all the games in the K League Classic this weekend...

Saturday 27th May 

Jeonbuk Hyundai Vs Suwon Bluewings 16:00

"Having squandered a lead to Incheon United the previous weekend, a stuttering Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors play host to a resurgent Suwon Samsung Bluewings in their last game at their temporary home before returning back to the World Cup Stadium next month. Despite contrasting starts to the season, both teams fortunes have somewhat reversed of recent, meaning victory for the away side will see them overtake Jeonbuk in the standings and push them out of the ACL qualifying spots for the first time this year."

More from our Jeonbuk Hyundai columnist Matthew Binns with a comprehensive match preview here.

Pohang Steelers Vs Gangwon FC 18:00

Third place Pohang welcome the visit of Gangwon FC this Saturday tea time in a game which could see the Steelers go top. With table topping Jeju United's away fixture with Gwangju called off, and second place Jeonbuk facing a tricky home fixture with Suwon Bluewings, a win for Choi Soonho's men could find themselves on top of the pile. Pohang have won their last three, Gangwon though make the trip on the back of an impressive win away to FC Seoul and have just one defeat in their last five.

Our Pohang columnist Seok Hyun previews the game here.

Gwangju FC Vs Jeju United 

Postponed until Saturday 2nd September due to Jeju United's continued involvement in the Asian Champions League.

FC Seoul Vs Ulsan Hyundai 19:00

FC Seoul's home defeat to Gangwon last week saw Hwang Sunhong's men drop out of the top six, a result which capped off a miserable week for the club after crashing out of the FA Cup to Busan IPark a few days earlier. Can the current K League Classic Champions bounce back?

A full preview from our columnist Ryan Walters is coming soon.

Prediction: FC Seoul 2-1 Ulsan Hyundai

Sunday 28th May

Daegu FC Vs Sangju Sangmu 19:00

Second bottom Daegu host Sangju on the back of a run of four straight defeats and just one win in their last eight. Such form has meant that manager Son Hyunjoo has stepped down and Brazilian assistant manager Andre is in caretaker charge. Sangju, after a run of just one defeat in eight games, are also in the midst of a sticky spell which has seen them pick up just one point from their last four games.

Our Daegu FC columbust Jung Muyeol on the resignation of manager Son Hyunjoo here.

Jeonnam Dragons Vs Incheon United 19:00

"Incheon United make the long trip down to Gwangyang this weekend to face the Jeonnam Dragons. United, who are currently propping up the table, are desperarely in need of the three points to climb back out of the danger zone. The Dragons, meanwhile, who recorded their first K League victory of the season in the reverse fixture in April, are seeking to make the most of home advantage and bank the three points themselves..."

Our Jeonnam Dragons columnists Aodan Halligan and Alex Meyer preview the game here.
