Preview: Ansan Greeners vs Jeonnam Dragons

Ansan Greeners vs Jeonnam Dragons
Round 15 sees Ansan Greeners take on Jeonnam Dragons in K League 2. Both teams were poor in the previous match and saw them lose at home to FC Anyang and Seoul E-Land, respectively. As is the case with most K League 2 games, either team will be looking to take all three points from this one.

Last Time Out

Ansan Greeners 0 - 1 FC Anyang

The only goal of the game came via an out swung corner that was flicked on to an unmarked Kim Gyeong-min who managed to bungle the ball in. The rain hammered down at the Ansan Wa-Stadium all night, and certainly didn't add to the quality of the match.

Anyang were deserved winners and should've had a few more goals to their name, but chances were squandered, not that that will have any bearing on a team that picked up only their third win of the season. Ansan, Anyang and Chungnam Asan are all desperate for wins, which made this result even more devastating for the home team.

Highlights

Jeonnam Dragons 1 - 2 Seoul E-Land

The Dragons knew that a win would see them sitting comfortably in third place, but showed little motivation or determination to score, rarely putting Seoul's goal under threat. The first half was forgettable for both teams, but just under a minute after the restart saw Seoul come to life and capitalize on a slip from wing-back Jo Yun-hyeong, allowing opposite number Go the time and space to put the ball into the back of the net. Jo was subsequently taken off four minutes later.

The Dragons did have a goal ruled out for a marginal offside, which took some time to be corrected by the officials, knocking the wind out of Jeonnam's come back, after seeing new boy Hernandes introduced off the bench. As has been the case most of the season, Seoul's second goal was created by talisman Leandro and was enough to see all three points go to Seoul, despite an 89th minute consolation penalty from Kim Hyeon-uk.

Highlights

Previous Meetings

Jeonnam will be looking forward to this fixture, after beating Ansan 4-0 only one month ago. Back then the Dragons were riding high off a 4-0 demolition of neighbors Gyeongnam  in the FA Cup, playing arguable their most free flowing, attractive football in a few seasons. Since then, their form fell away and are now win-less in three matches. Ansan, on the other hand, hadn't won a game since the end of June until they traveled to high flying Suwon FC and got a shock 2-1 win over the league leaders.


Team News

Felipe Augusto picked up a red card in Ansan's last game, so will be suspended for this Saturday's fixture. Ansan manager Kim Gil-sik made only one change from their win versus Suwon and their defeat against Anyang in which they were well beaten, and played the same system, so he may be feeling confused over how his team should set out this weekend. But without Augusto to lead the line they may revert to play two strikers with a midfielder occupying the space behind them.

Jeonnam still have left back Zoteev out, after he went off injured against Gyeongnam last month, but should have no recent injuries to worry about. Manager Jeon would have been bitterly disappointed in the home loss to Seoul last weekend and after his track record of showing faith in his squad and not being scared to rotate, will ring round a few changes for the Ansan game. Expect Brazilian Hernandes to start the game and provide some creativity to Jeonnam's game.


What To Watch

Who will show initiative?

Both teams suffered home defeats in round 14, not only that, but both teams were extremely poor, and offered nothing in attack, or much in defence. Fans, and neutrals alike, will be hoping for some positive play from the teams this Saturday, and judging from the last game's displays, whoever takes the game to the opposition will most likely take all three points home.

Prediction

If Hernandes can play a good portion of the game, his quality should be enough to see Jeonnam win comfortably.

Prediction: Ansan Greeners 0 - 2 Jeonnam Dragons
