2011.7.22 Weekend Picks: K-League* Suwon Samsung Bluewings FC (8-2-8) at Busan I’Park FC (8-5-5)
* Busan World Cup Stadium, Busan
* Saturday, 7 p.m.
The eighth place Suwon Bluewings will face fifth place Busan, which is on a four-match winning streak.
Busan’s two new Brazilian players - Jose Fagner Silva da Luz and Eder Luis de Carvalho - are expected to make their K-League debuts in the game. Fagner is only 163 centimeters (5 feet, 4 inches) tall, but makes up for his lack of height with speed, while Eder is a solid centerback who is strong in the air.
Busan has the league’s No. 5 goal scorer, Han Sang-wun, who has eight goals in 17 matches.
Meanwhile Suwon, which recently added Macedonian striker Stevica Ristic to the team, also signed midfielder Park Hyun-bum from Jeju United, hoping to reinforce the midfield.
Suwon has a better all-time head-to-head record, leading Busan with 32 wins, 17 draws and 14 losses.
