Preview: K League 2 Round 12

As leagues around Europe come to an end and the World Cup countdown hits fever pitch here at K League United, we are still full steam ahead with K League 2 action. As we go into Round 12, Seongnam remain undefeated and Anyang is still without a win, having lost five on the bounce. Their match ups and more in your comprehensive Round 12 preview.

Saturday 19th May

Bucheon 1995 (2nd)  v Seoul E-Land (9th) 19:00

On Saturday evening we will see Bucheon 1995 entertain Seoul E-Land in a game you would expect the hosts to come away with three points from. Although the home side lost last time out thanks to an early Kim Jong-gook penalty for Asan, they have looked solid this season. Goals have been hard to come by recently for Bucheon, so they will hope Willian Popp and co can get back on the score sheet. Meanwhile, the Seoul E-Land have shown some decent displays this season, losing just once in their past five. So this may be a tougher tie than the league table suggests.

Asan Mugunghwa (3rd) v Daejeon Citizen (6th) 19:00

Saturday's other game sees Asan Mugunghwa take on Daejeon Citizen with both teams picking up some form in the last few games. For Asan, they remain only five points off the lead an automatic promotion spot is still very much in their reach. Meanwhile, Daejeon will be keen to capitalize on their back to back wins and make sure they are not cut adrift of the playoff spots. Still, regardless of recent form, the home side will be favored to take all three points at Yishunsin Stadium Saturday night.

Sunday 20th May

FC Anyang (10th) v Gwangju FC (7th) 18:00

Sunday's only K2 game sees the league's bottom side take on Gwangju FC in what many will see as the least entertaining of the weekend. For a team desperate for positives, Anyang managed to score twice last time out after being held scoreless in four of their previous seven matches. However, they conceded three again and were unable to secure any points. A trend that Gwangju fans will recognize as their side has been poor since their 5-0 drubbing of Suwon FC in Round 8. Taking this into account, I think Anyang may be able to pick up a point this weekend.

Monday 21 May

Ansan Greeners (5th) v Seongnam FC (1st) 19:30

League leaders Seongnam FC travel to Ansan looking to keep their astounding season long unbeaten run going. Winners of five straight, the Magpies have pushed themselves four points clear at the top of the table. Meanwhile, after a surprisingly strong start to the season, the Green Wolves have stumbled of late, losing three in a row. While I would like to give this game more of an edge, I can only see Seongnam coming away with the three points Monday evening.

Busan I'Park (4th) v Suwon (8th) 19:30

The final game of the round sees Busan host the hot and cold Suwon FC, who remain near the bottom of the table. After picking up back to back wins, Busan are now back in a playoff spot and will look to cement that place even further with a win over their Northern rivals. In spite of the lopsided match up on paper, Suwon did manage a win last time out at Asan as Bae Ji-hoon found himself on the score sheet for the first time this season and secured the win for his side. Additionally, Suwon took all three points the last time these sides met in mid April with another 1-0 victory. In spite of this, Busan will still be favorites this weekend to continue their charge up the table.
