Busan IPark and Chungbuk Cheongju FC will face off.

Match of the Round – Busan, undefeated in four matches, vs. Chungbuk Cheongju, looking for their first three-game winning streak

Busan was unable to find the back of the net against Gimpo in Round 17, despite recording 14 shots and six on target. The 0-0 draw was a disappointing result, but the team earned a point to improve to 10 points from three wins and one draw in their last four matches. Currently, Busan is ranked fourth in team goals scored (22) and conceded (11), the fewest after Gimpo (8).

Meanwhile, Chungbuk Cheongju defeated Gimpo 2-1 in Round 16 and then defeated Jeonnam 3-1 in Round 17 to complete their winning streak. One of the main contributors to the streak was foreign player Jorge, who scored multiple goals in two consecutive games. If Chungbuk Cheongju wins against Busan, it will be the club’s first three-game winning streak.

The first meeting of the season between Busan and Chungbuk Cheongju ended in a 1-1 draw, with Cheongju taking an early lead through Paulinho, but Busan’s Kim Sang-jun scored a theater goal in second-half stoppage time. The matchup between the two teams, who are unbeaten in four matches and looking for their first ever three-game winning streak, will take place on Saturday, April 24 at 4 p.m. at the Busan Asiad Stadium.

Team of the Round – Gimpo looking to end three-match winless streak against Jeonnam

Gimpo are undefeated in their first 12 matches of the season with seven wins and five draws. The driving force behind their unbeaten run was a salty defense that conceded just four goals in 12 games. However, they conceded four goals in two games against Bucheon in Round 15 and Cheongju in Round 16, their first back-to-back losses of the season. A draw against Busan in Round 17 ended the three-game losing streak.

While the three-match winless streak can be attributed to a shaky defense, the team urgently needs to find answers in attack as they have scored just two goals in their last six matches, the fewest among the 13 teams in K League 2. For Gimpo, Round 18 is a golden opportunity to turn things around. Gimpo, who hosts Jeonnam in Round 18, has been strong against Jeonnam in their five previous meetings, with three wins and two draws. Moreover, there hasn’t been a single scoreless match. Their first meeting this season was also a multi-goal affair, with Lewis scoring twice in a 2-0 win.

To see if Gimpo can revitalize their offense and escape with a draw against Jeonnam, Gimpo and Jeonnam will meet on Sunday, May 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Gimpo Solter Stadium.
