Recap: K League 1 Round Six

We will have a look back at the sixth round of fixtures in the K League 1 and with all games played on Wednesday night, it was a chance to see every team in the top flight in action. It proved to a great night for the champions Jeonbuk Motors in particular as they ended the new boys Gyeongnam's unbeaten start to the season with a win in impressive style in what was the K League Match of the Week. Elsewhere, FC Seoul picked up their first win of the campaign and there were positive results for Jeju United and Ulsan Hyundai. Your comprehensive round up of round six.

FC Seoul 2 - 1 Pohang Steelers

FC Seoul finally got their first win of the season at the sixth time of asking; if this will be enough to ease the pressure on the side we shall see. The game did not start well for the home side when Kim Seung-dae scored for Pohang Steelers within the first ten minutes. FC Seoul would have been feeling at this point it was going to be more of the same. However this time they fought back with two goals either side of the break from Go Yo-han to win the match.

Editors Ryan Walters and Paul Neat's post match analysis and reaction from Pohang's Australian defensive midfielder Connor Chapman:

 Gyeongnam FC 0 - 4 Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors

The big match of the week that was streamed around the world for free was between the new boys and table toppers Gyeongnam and current K League 1 Champions Jeonbuk Motors. Looking at the first five games of the season on paper this had the making of a tight game. But, within twenty minutes it looked to be Jeonbuk's game to lose as they went a goal up through the impressive Kim Shin-wook. Gyeongnam then had a goal disallowed correctly through the VAR for offside before Kim Shin-wook made it 2-0 within 25 minutes. Tiago Alves then made it three before the break with a lovely strike into the bottom corner from the edge of the area. Ricardo Lopes added a decisive fourth, right at the death for Jeonbuk to send the Champions to the top of the league. Ricardo Lopes' strike in particular was a lovely goal as he ghosted past defenders for fun before scoring from close range. Despite this result also Gyeongnam shouldn't feel too disheartened as they had chances and are still well within reach of the top teams in the league right now.

Daegu FC 0 - 2 Ulsan Hyundai

Uslan Hyundai continued with their recent revival to make it three wins in a row in all competitions as they defeated Daegu FC. Both goals came in the last ten minutes for the visitors, though, through Oršić and then Júnior Negrão. The late goals could have come earlier when, on the 60 minute mark, Júnior Negrão took it around the Daegu 'keeper Cho Hyun-woo but he failed to find the net. Daegu will feel a bit disappointed not to have taken anything from the game as five minutes before the end Jung Chi-in had a great chance to equalize from close range but he fired straight at the 'keeper. Júnior Negrão then made his former employers pay for the missed chance to double the away side's league in the 90th minute and seal the victory.

Jeonnam Dragons 0 - 3 Jeju United

Jeju United won comfortably over Jeonnam Dragons to help ease the pain from a disappointing Champions League exit last week. The goals in the match came from Tiago Marques, Lee Chang-min and Kim Hyeon-wook. Jeonnam Dragons lost Wanderson Carvalho to a straight red card 11 minutes into the second half of this match to make his former club's task that little bit easier. In the end, this was still a big win for Jeju United as they looked to bounce back after a poor start to the campaign. In a game in which Jeju United dominated with some lovely football at times, the islanders will be hoping they can continue this run on Saturday when they face Incheon United. 

Incheon United 0 - 1 Sangju Sangmu

This game was won with a very late penalty in the 93rd minute through Lim Chae-min. Despite the winning goal coming so late in the day, it was actually a very entertaining game in which both teams had chances to score and so there could easily have been more than the just the one goal. However, in truth, a draw would have been a fair result and Incheon United will feel they could've won this game on another day.

Gangwon 2 - 3 Suwon Bluewings

Suwon Bluewings moved up to third in the league with a win over Gangwon. The game started well and after an entertaining start, Gangwon went one up through Kang Ji-hoon. It began to look as if Suwon were going to be out of luck again but, with it looking as though the the half getting away from them, Kim Gun-hee put them on level terms in the 45th minute. A tap in from Đerić two minutes into the second half put Gangwon back into the lead and at this point, it looked like Gangwon were to inflict more misery on the Bluewings. However, an unfortunate McGowan own goal brought the scores level again. Then in the third minute of injury time, a lovely 25-yard free kick from Yeom Ki-hun found the corner of the net meaning that Suwon Bluewings would come away with the three points.
