Owing to a completely injury-free group available for selection, the Gangwon FC boss Yong-soo Choi doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match.
When taking everything into account, Gangwon FC could find themselves struggling to break down this Daejeon Citizen lineup who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a good tussle with a 1-0 winning margin for Daejeon Citizen at full-time.
