Jeju United travel to Suwon Bluewings tomorrow night for an important top of the table clash.
A win is important for both teams as they look to reach the upper heights of the K-League. Jeju are still within touching distance of the title and Suwon are just one point away from third place and the champions league spots.
The game will be played at 19:30 on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Let's take a look at how they will both line up.
How were their last games?
Jeju's last game was a home win against third-placed Ulsan Hyundai. After going ahead early on, Ulsan pulled one back before Jeju showed real character to go ahead again just ten minutes later.
Jeju's solid defense was then able to hold out for the final fifteen minutes and record a win.
Other good news for Jeju is that their striker Magno Cruz scored again, taking his recent goalscoring record to an impressive six in the last ten games.
Suwon's last game was a disappointing 0-0 draw with Daegu. They seemed to really miss the attacking talents of injured striker and K-League top scored Jonathan.
How is their recent form?
Jeju have been on fire recently as they have haven't lost in nine games, winning all but two in this unbeaten run.
This run of form has even seen impressive wins against Ulsan Hyundai and a good away draw with FC Seoul, two of their main challengers for the top three. If they manage to avoid defeat to Suwon that will mean they have stayed unbeaten against the three teams below them in the league.
Suwon aren't doing quite as while despite going on a long unbeaten run earlier in the season. The loss of Jonathan in their game against FC Seoul means they have only won one game in the last four.
How have previous games this season between the two sides finished?
Jeju have played Suwon twice so far this season with Suwon winning both the home (1-0) and the away (1-2) game. Both games have been close, however, with only one goal between the two teams.
What can we expect from the game?
This will likely be a close game between two of the top teams in the league. Jeju are currently on a better run of form although they haven't had the best of luck against Suwon so far. Perhaps, a lot will depend on whether or not Suwon's striker Jonathan will be fit.
