In their previous game, the manager N. Kim led his Seongnam to a defeat in the K-League 1 match away at Seoul. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Seongnam Tancheon Sports Complex. Kyung-won Kwon was "man of the match" with a rating of 6.85 out of 10. The defender Kwon hit one key pass and won 2 of 3 duels.

Gwangju form and stats

There's been little loot from Gwangju's travels as they have only collected 14 points from 17 away games in the K-League 1. Gwangju only have 4 wins to counter their 11 defeats and 2 draws. Winning streaks in away matches are not that common, but Gwangju are close to a proper streak after winning their two previous away games.
