K-League Round 3 Fixtures, Tips and Preview

Andrew Hendrie:
K-League Round 3

Jeonbuk Motors and Ulsan Hyundai will be looking to make it three wins from three to launch the new K-League season in this weekend’s Round 3 fixtures.

Last season’s K-League champions and runners-up have both registered a maximum six points from their first two games, but they were each extremely fortunate to come away with victories in Round 2.


Jeonbuk needed a stoppage-time goal to edge past newly-promoted Busan 2-1, while Ulsan staged a remarkable comeback to recover from two goals down to take down Suwon Bluewings 3-2.

Will they have an easier time of it this weekend? Jeonbuk host Daegu and Ulsan entertain Busan, with both games taking place on Sunday.

Jeonbuk and Ulsan are the only teams to have won both games across the first two rounds, while Pohang Steelers and Seongnam are the only other sides to remain undefeated.

Pohang kick off Round 3 action on Friday night with a big showdown against FC Seoul, while Seongham travel to Gangwon on Saturday.

Suwon will be hoping to get on the board after two tough opening games against Ulsan and Jeonbuk when they face Incheon, who are yet to score a goal after registering a pair of 0-0 stalemates.
