2011.5.20 Weekend Picks: K-League* Busan I’Park FC (3-4-3) at Suwon Samsung Bluewings FC (4-2-4)
* Suwon World Cup Stadium, Suwon, Gyeonggi
* Saturday, 6 p.m.
Both teams rested their first team players for their FA cup matches this week so this match should see fresh payers with lots of energy.
Busan have come out of an early-season slump to get itself back on track. In fact the team hasn’t lost in its last 11 games, including league cup and FA cup games.
The team is well-known for its balanced teamwork and its offense is led by 25-year-old forward Han Sang-wun, who has scored five goals in 10 games.
Suwon hasn’t won in its last four and is looking at this game to get its first win since April 15. The team has talented national team attackers in the front line but still hasn’t found the right combination for scoring goals, highlighted by the teams’s top scorer being central defender Mato Neretljak.
Suwon dominate the head-to-head, leading with 32 wins, 17 draws and 12 losses.
