Preview: K League 2 Round 3


Round 3 of the K League 2 kicks off this week and we are hoping for even more excitement following last week, which saw sending offs and last minute winners. At the moment it is still very tight with only two sides managing to win both games and four matches ending in draws already this season.

Saturday 17 March 

Ansan Greeners (3rd) v FC Anyang (9th) 15:00

Ansan Greeners host FC Anyang this weekend after an exciting 3-2 win last time out for them. With the home side getting a last-minute winner in week two with nine men on the park, they will be hoping that the result will give them the confidence to kick on from here. Anyang, on the other hand lie in ninth place having not yet scored this season. The away side will be looking for a spark this Saturday to get their campaign going, although I think they might need to wait another week or so for that to happen.

Suwon FC (4th) v Seongnam FC (6th) 15:00

Suwon suffered defeat last time out after starting the season with a win, while the away side has only managed one point so far. With Seongnam looking to secure promotion to the K League 1 they will need to start winning games soon if they are not to fall any further behind the pack. I think this will be a tight game but, after two narrow draws in recent weekes, I predict the away side will finally get going this season and come away with a surprising win.

Prediction: Suwon 0-2 Seongnam 


Gwangju FC (7th) v Bucheon 1995 (1st) 15:00 

Gwangju are now in the K League 2 and still looking like they can't shake off the poor performances that had them relegated last season. The home side has not even registered a goal yet this season. Bucheon 1995 on the other hand, have come out flying, sitting at the top of the league on maximum points. A betting man would only go for one outcome this weekend but you never know in football Gwangju might find their feet eventually but I don't think it will be this round.

Prediction: Gwangju 0-3 Bucheon 1995


Sunday 18 March 

Busan IPark (5th) v Asan Mugunghwa (2nd) 14:00

Busan IPark faces the K League 2's other side with two wins out of two, Asan Mugunghwa. The home side, who are also undefeated after two draws, will want to get three points on the boar. While Asan Mugunghwa have looked good so far this year, it will be a tough test for them in Sunfay's early kickoff. While last time out the away side won 2-0 but only sealed the victory in injury time of the second half. Meanwhile, Busan I'Park fought back in an entertaining game in Seoul against E-Land to draw 2-2. I think it will be tough to call but am going for a home win.

Prediction: Busan I'Park 2-1 Asan Mugunghwa 


Daejeon Citizen (10th) v Seoul E-Land (8th) 15:00

The last game of the weekend will see the K League 2 bottom side face Seoul E-Land who, while laying in 8th place, will feel they can improve after losing a 2-1 lead against Busan last weekend. After a poor season in 2017, which involved far too many draws, the away side will need to start winning games this season. While the home side, with a squad of 56, will want to get some points on the board after losing to a nine-man Ansan Greeners, you cant imagine confidence is very high in the camp. There are plenty of players to fight for spaces though, so this might drive them on.
