Game of the weekend - Suwon FC vs Bucheon 1995

My prediction for a game of the weekend this week takes its focus to the K-League 2, which so far has been more exciting of the leagues that have restarted in South Korea in my opinion. 

Suwon look to extend their 3 matches unbeaten run, where the goals keep pouring in

Suwon started the season with a disappointing 2-1 home defeat against Daejon Citizen, but since then have gone on a three-match unbeaten run and have been hammering in the goals.

Two away games followed that home defeat, and those two games could have swung the momentum back around to a promotion charge by Suwon. A 2-0 away victory at Ansan Greeners, and then a thumping 5-0 away win against Chungnam Asan saw Suwon pick up two smashing victories, scoring 7 goals in the process and conceding 0.

The third match of their successful run came at home against recently relegated Gyeongnam. This should have proved to be a more difficult challenge, but Suwon also swept them aside, winning the game 3-1.

This puts Suwon FC second in the table on 9 points, after 4 matches, on 3 wins, 1 defeat, 11 goals for and 3 against.

Bucheon is one spot behind them in third with a similar record.

Bucheon come into this game on the back of losing their unbeaten record

Bucheon have a similar record to Suwon, but it is somewhat reversed in how they came about matching the fellas from Suwon.

Starting their season with a solid 1-0 away win against Chungnam Asan, that was followed up with a 2-1 home win against FC Anyang, and then they got another away win, winning 2-0 at Ansan Greeners.

Their 3 matches unbeaten run came to an end when they travelled to Jeju to face Jeju United and lost that match 1-0.

Bucheon hasn't been smashing in as many goals as Suwon but they have been playing very controlled football and look to be a very solid outfit this season.

Therefore I have predicted this match as the game of the week, for this weekend's games. 2nd vs 3rd in a shortened K-League season due to the Coronavirus means it could already end up being a crucial match for both sides if they have aspirations of being promoted come to the end of the season.
