It's still early in the K-League 1 season, but we are learning more and more about the teams. Here is the Sangju Sangmu - Gwangju preview!

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

Gwangju form and stats

Gwangju have played one away game so far, a loss. Last season their away games stats in the K-League 1 were 9 victories, 5 draws and 4 defeats from 18 fixtures. It's looking increasingly bleak for Gwangju who now has to deal with a four game losing streak. Suwon was the last time a defeat was avoided. The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Gwangju have lost on their last two travels.

Gwangju aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 499 league minutes without a goal. Song Seung-Min was the last player to find the net.

Gwangju are travelling again after losing away to Seoul in their previous match (0-1). A 0-2 loss hosting Seongnam before that.

It's early days yet, but Gwangju has scored 0 and conceded 1 goals from their travels in the league so far (1 game).

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Sangju three wins, zero draws and Gwangju seven victories. As for goals, three matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), seven games had two or less.
