  • 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.

  • 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.
