The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Draw

Seoul have been misfiring in front of goal and this has had an overwhelming effect on their ability to convert decent performances into victories. In the last five matches, Seoul have only managed a single victory and this came about courtesy of a 1-0 score. Gwangju are also in a similar vein of form with this one win in the last five. After having witnessed two draws in the last three matches between these two clubs, another stalemate could be on the cards.

Total goals less than 2.5

Seoul and Gwangju names have not produced a lot of excitement in recent years. In the last two seasons, this fixture has come up with a combined return of six goals. Since these two teams have also not been doing well in front of goal, a low scoring game is a great pick.

Both teams to score – yes

Over the last few weeks, Gwangju have started showing improvement in form and their goalless draw against Seongnam was the first clean sheet in five matches. Seoul have also just managed back-to-back clean sheets, but the run may not extend further with Seoul likely to sacrifice differences solidarity for some offensive threat – especially in a home match.

Seoul vs Gwangju: Match Preview and Team News

Seoul

Seoul are no closer to pulling away from the bottom and it is largely down to the offence which has not done the trick so far this season. Despite being a couple of points ahead of Gwangju, Seoul have actually scored less. Yong-Soo Choi will be without Gabriel Barbosa, Osmar, Connor Chapman, and Tae-seok Lee.

Gwangju

Gwangju might have come away with no defeats in the last three matches, but it is largely down to home assistance. The team is still on a four-game losing streak when it comes to away matches alone. There are no major injury problems for Gwangju apart from Han-saem Lee, Jong-woo Kim, and Jung-soo Park.
