* Pohang Steelers (11-7-3) at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC (13-5-3)
* Jeonju World Cup Stadium, Jeonju, North Jeolla

K-League leader Jeonbuk is looking for revenge as it hosts second-placed Pohang. The two teams last met on May 15, when Pohang rallied in thrilling fashion to win 3-2 to a raucous home crowd. Jeonbuk has not lost a game since.

Former national team striker Lee Dong-guk, who has scored 10 goals this season, will lead Jeonbuk’s attack with Kim Dong-chan, this season’s fifth top scorer with eight goals. Pohang will try to extend its two-game winning streak with a strong midfield comprising Hwang Jin-sung, Kim Jae-sung and Shin Hyung-min.
