Preview: Ansan Greeners vs Jeonnam Dragons

Ansan look to continue their push for top four while Jeonnam look to continue their steady ascent away from the foot of K League 2. Both teams are coming off the back of wins so this is shaping up to be a crucial clash for both sides.

Last Time Out

The Greeners came away from Bucheon with another impressive come-from-behind victory, as Park Iin-seob struck twice, earning himself player of the round in the process. It mirrors the result earlier in the season when Ansan similarly grabbed two goals to take all three points, a replica result worthy of a place in Aiin’s World. Marlon de Jesus struck for Bucheon after just ten minutes, but Park equalised before the break. It looked to be heading for a disappointing draw for the Greeners, before Park struck again two minutes from time to keep Ansan just a point behind fourth placed Asan.

Jeonnam’s struggles since relegation have had a recent turnaround and this continued with a solid 2-0 victory against fellow strugglers Daejeon. First half goals from Han Chan-hee and Choi Jae-hyeon sewed up the victory early for the Dragons, putting them nine points clear of Citizen and just five points behind the Green Wolves in 6th.

Previous Meetings

Both of the clashes between the two sides have ended in Ansan victories this season. Ansan drubbed the Dragons 3-0 at the Wa Stadium in May with a brace from Vintecinco and an additional tally from Jang Hyeok-jin. Two of those goals came in second half stoppage time. The Greeners scored thrice again when the two sides met in Gwangyang. Kim Gyeong-min opened the scoring with an own goal, before Park Jin-seob and Kim Jin-wook added a second and third. Lee Ji-nam grabbed an injury time consolation for Jeonnam.

Team News

Ansan have a full squad to choose from this weekend. Felipe Dorta has left the club however for FC Balzers in the Swiss fourth tier. Lim Win-seob will have had a chance to take a look at Ansan’s second string after a midweek reserve game against Suwon Bluewings, that ended in a 1-0 defeat.
Jeonnam also have no suspensions, having one of the cleanest disciplinary records in the division.

Prediction

Despite an upturn in form, Ansan appear to have Jeonnam's number this season and will be desperate to keep up with Asan and Anyang in the play-offs race.

Ansan Greeners 2-0 Jeonnam Dragons
