2011.5.6 Weekend Picks: K-League

* Chunnam Dragons FC (3-1-4) at Suwon Samsung Bluewings FC (4-1-3)
* Suwon World Cup Stadium, Suwon, Gyeonggi
* Tomorrow, 6 p.m.

Both Chunnam and Suwon have lost two games in a row and will look to end their woeful streak tomorrow in Suwon.

Suwon, currently fourth in the league table, is led by Croatian defender Mato Neretljak, who not only makes up the core of Suwon’s defense but is also its top scorer with four goals.

Chunnam will look to striker Ji Dong-won to step up tomorrow. The team only has six goals in eight games, which is second worst behind Gangwon FC.

Meanwhile, Chunnam goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae will make his first visit to Suwon since he left the team at the end of last season. He was Suwon’s goalkeeper for 15 years.



* FC Seoul (2-3-3) at Sangju Sangmu Phoenix FC (4-4-0)
* Sangju Civic Stadium, Sangju, North Gyeongsang
* Sunday, 3 p.m.

FC Seoul, which changed its head coach after seven games, will face the surprising Sangju, which has yet to lose a match.

Seoul got its second win of the season last week against Jeju United under interim head coach Choi Yong-soo, who inherited the job from Hwangbo Kwan last Tuesday. Seoul needs Mauricio Molina, who has one goal and two assists so far, to improve.

Sangju hasn’t lost a single game at home and hasn’t allowed a goal in its last three games.
