Gyeongnam FC v Seoul E-Land FC: Preview


Something, whatever it was, went very right for Seoul E-Land last week and it's fingers crossed that whatever magic they found hasn't rubbed off by the time the Leoullercoaster finds its way down the long road to Geoje-do for this game.

Perhaps its a sign of Gyeongnam's lacklustre start to the season - they sit second bottom with just one win and three goals from six matches - that the suits upstairs have decided to start touring them round the province in the hope of generating some interest. Either that or they watched last weekend's demolition of Suwon and have decided their best chance of a result is if E-Land can't actually find the stadium.

For Seoul, surely Martin Rennie will resist the temptation to tinker with the eleven that did so well last week and will go for the same team. This would again see Brazilian buzz-bomb Tarabai given free reign as a lone-ish striker supporter by Lee Jae-an and Joo Min-kyu while the mercurial Kim Jae-sung supports from midfield.

Gyeongnam meanwhile may look to shuffle the pack after a run of 5 games which has seen them lose 4 and draw 1. Regardless of who is picked though, it's likely that the main (only?) goal threat will come from their big Serbian striker Milos Stojanovic who is likely to play a lone targetman role. Elsewhere, there doesn't seem to be a great deal to worry the the Seoul defence.

The hardest task of the day may be for Seoul to break down a stuffy Gyeongnam backline - they certainly have the players to do it but it will require them to be on Suwon-beating form and not the kind of display they phoned-in against Bucheon.

Taking both sides records so far the smart money would probably be on a scoreless or 1-1 draw in this match but last week's display has given a shot in the arm to Seoul and their supporters. This renewed confidence, coupled with Gyeongnam's poor form might just be enough to give them an edge in what is sure to be a close encounter.

Key Man: Kim Jae-sung has been the lynchpin for Seoul this season and everything good in the team goes through him.  2 goals last week capped a magnificent all-round performance. He could make the difference again in this one.
