Preview: Gangwon FC Vs FC Seoul

Lee Sangho in ACL action for FC Seoul
After faltering in the Asian Champions League quite spectacularly, and the Super Match stalemate, FC Seoul make the trip to Pyeongchang looking for their first win of 2017. Newly promoted Gangwon on the other hand, got off to a winning start heading into Saturday's match having displaced Sangju Samgmu away.

Previous Meetings

Due to Gangwon's relegation from the K League Classic in 2013, and a three year stay in the second tier
, the last time these two sides met was back in July 2013 on the east coastal city of Gangneung.

On 16th July 2013, to be exact, FC Seoul picked up the three points in a narrow 1-0 with current Daejeon Citizen defender and former Korea international Kim Jinkyu with the goal on 59 minutes.

Goals were not so much at a premium for the return fixture in the capital as Seoul ran out winners in a five goal thriller after coming back from the dead to net three goals in the last eleven minutes.

On that Spring afternoon at Sangam, Brazilian forward Patrik Silva put Gangwon ahead on eight minutes before his side had a little helping hand from his fellow countryman, Adilson, who scored an own goal, putting daylight between the two sides.


But, thanks to a late rally, any Gangwon celebrations were in vain as Go Yohan went on to bag a brace with goals on 79 and 85 minutes, which were then followed by an 87th minute Dejan Damjanovic strike to put Seoul's noses in front and seal a dramatic win.

Team News

Seoul will be without the services of Go Yohan through suspension after the midfielder was adjudged to be guilty of improper conduct during the Super Match last Sunday.


The Korean international was seen to lash out at Suwon Bluewings midfielder Lee Jongsung during an off the ball incident and as thus will serve a two match suspension.

Skipper Gwak Taewhi sat out Seoul's first league game of the season after limping out of the defeat to Urawa Reds in the Asian Champions League last week.

Should the Republic of Korea international be fit to play then his return would be a huge boost for FC Seoul.

For Gangwon, Jeong Jukgook and Kim Seungyong have both declared themselves as fit and eager to impress against the reigning K League Champions.
