K League Round Up (11-1/2)

The first round post-split is in the books. Let’s just get right too it.

K League Classic Results – Round 34

Championship Half

Pohang Steelers 1-1 Jeju United
Ulsan Hyundai 0-3 Suwon Samsung
FC Seoul 0-1 Jeonbuk Motors

Relegation Half

Jeonnam Dragons 1-1 Seongnam FC
Sangju Sangmu 2-3 Busan IPark
Incheon United 1-1 Gyeongnam FC

Round Prediction Results: 1/6 aka ‘hang your head in shame’
Overall Results: 4/12 aka ‘don’t quit your day job’

    • If you go just by results, Suwon showed they have no intention of giving up the chase, however futile it seems, while Ulsan looks to have cashed it in.
    • Pohang’s attack stuttered again as they failed to get vital points against Jeju. The result does though keep the gap at five points.
    • Jeonbuk makes their magic number 3. Three points are all that’s needed to claim the title.
    • Busan is the only team to make a move (of sorts) in the relegation half. Their 3-2 win over Sangju opens a bit more space at the bottom for them, and closes the gap to Incheon to two points

K League Challenge Results – Round 34

Ansan KP 3-2 Gwangju FC
Suwon FC 2-1 FC Anyang
Daejeon Citizen 1-0 Bucheon 1995
Daegu FC 6-1 Gangwon FC
Chungju Hummels 0-0 Goyang Hi

  • Daejeon put one hand on the trophy. Their win means that Ansan can, at best, match their points (but virtually impossible to match the goal difference). Should Ansan drop points midweek against Anyang, the title officially heads to Daejeon.
  • Suwon FC jumps into the playoff spots (at Gangwon’s expense) as they upset Anyang
  • Daegu with the result of the weekend as they put six past Gangwon

  1. Thanks for this Jae.

    And not to toot my own horn, but my own personal predictions (which I made in the comments) went 5/6 on correct result, and 1/6 on correct score. Heh.

    And I’m very glad I was wrong about the math thing about Daejeon. (Although it was stupid of me to generalise and suggest I’m shaming my ancestry) Promotion awaits! Gone are the days of Bucheon and Goyang! Hello Seoul and Suwon!

    Oh, and Ulsan, can you let us keep ICW? I didn’t notice him much before but after knowing who he is, I can begin to appreciate his play more and realise he does so many of the little things right for Daejeon. Awesome-sauce.

    • That’s something I was wondering about. Can Daejeon (as a citizen club) keep hold of their star players like Adriano, Lim Chang-woo, and Seo Myeong-won next season?
