- One game of particular importance in Europe is Leverkusen visiting M’Gladbach. The prize? 3rd place – automatic qualifying spot in the Champions League next season.
- Meanwhile, can Hong Jeong-Ho, Ji Dong-Won get an upset over distracted Bayern Munich? Hong already listed to start, Ji on the bench but I’d imagine he’ll get some time on the pitch.
On to Round 10 in the K-League Classic, where we have 3 results already in…
- Jo Sung-Jin and Leo both get on the scoreline for Suwon, dispatch hosts Gwangju.
- Dong Suk came off the bench for Incheon and scored the only goal against visitors Jeju.
For the rest of Round 10, here’s Sunday’s K-League fixtures
Sunday, May 10
* US EST
- Jae Chee previewed the Busan v Seoul game for K League United. Both clubs come into the game with some wind at their sails, Busan upsetting Pohang and FC Seoul’s last gasp Molina goal to squeeze into the Asian Champions League Round of 16. Could Park Chu-Young recover in time to help out Seoul?
- The really big clash in the K-League this weekend could be the Ulsan v Jeonbuk match. Ulsan’s been slipping in recent weeks but on paper are a relatively strong side, though in-form Jeonbuk has been running away at the top as predicted.
- Modern Seoul has a brief preview of the the other K-League Classic and Challenge matches.
Chungju 3 : 1 Gangwon
Sangju Sangmu 0 : 2 Daegu [ Jonathan with a brace ]
Suwon FC 2 : 0 Goyang

Bucheon 1995 v Ansan Police [4 PM Korea / 3 AM US EST]
- K-League United offers up a preview of the Gyeongnam v Seoul E-Land game here.
