Team News: Gwangju FC
From a largely available squad, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Gwangju FC gaffer Jung-hyo Lee to be concerned with. Jun-hyeok Choi (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
In our opinion, Gwangju FC will need things to go their way to get anything against this FC Seoul lineup who we think should get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for FC Seoul when all is said and done.
It should be a good one.
