The K League United Podcast

Feb 22, 2022

With the K League now officially underway for 2022 campaign, this week's podcast sees host Ryan Walters speak with K League TV commentator Alex Jensen and K League Brazil's Khaleby Gomes take a look at the opening weekend and give their key takeaways from the action.

K League is finally back and the weekend brought goals, shocks and a surprising number of clean sheets. In K League 2, newcomers Gimpo FC kicked off their first game with a win against recently relegated Gwangju FC while Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors stretched their unbeaten opening day streak to 11 years.
Elsewhere in K League 1 Suwon Samsung Bluewings fell to Incheon United after being reduced to ten men early on, while FC Seoul got off to an uncharacteristically winning start, seeing off last seasons third-placed finishers Daegu FC. Sunday's top flight action also saw Gangwon see off Seongnam, Pohang overthrow Jeju and newly-promoted Gimcheon Sangmu, reduced to ten men, hold Ulsan Hyundai.
K League 2 also saw wins for FC Anyang, Seoul E-Land while Busan drew with Ansan Greeners and Bucheon ended goalless with Chungnam Asan.
Alex and Khaelby comb through the action to give their takeaways from the opening round.
