LGT vs SAL Dream11 Match Preview: LG Twins and Samsung Lions play the third consecutive game against each other in the 2020 regular season of Korean Baseball League on Thursday (IST). LG dominated in he first game-winning 10-6, but Samsung levelled this mini-series with a 1-3 away win in the last game.
LG are the second-best team in the league with 8 wins and five defeats from the first 13 games. But the gap between them and the current leaders NC Dinos, which is three games, is exactly the same as it is between them and 9th placed Hanwha Eagles. In fact, sixth-placed KIA Tigers are only a game behind them on the table, which shows that the shape of the table can be completely different after this round’s fixtures.
Samsung Lions may have won the last game, but they are one of the worst teams on the current league. Before winning 1-3 against LG Twins, they dropped four straight games, including two big defeats against kt Wiz.
Date- Thursday, May 21
Time- Daegu Samsung Lions Park
Venue- Suwon Baseball Stadium
LG Twins are in a decent position and despite losing the last game, they should be confident of their chances in this game. The squad is healthy with no player expected to miss the game either with injury or suspension. They are also likely to stick with the same team that started the last match.
That said, Kim Yong Eui sat out the last game due to undisclosed reasons and is a doubt for this match as well. Koo Bon-hyeok was also dropped from the active roster and remains questionable for this match as well.
The visitors are hard-pressed for a win as they sit closer to the foot of the table. But the win in the last game should give the team enough fuel to go into this game with winds in their sails. They should look to build on that positive result and get their season back on track.
Park Gye-beom was not involved in the last game as he remained out of the active roster. He remains a doubt for this match. Park Chan-do missed the last game as well due to a knock and will be assessed before the match.
LG Twins (Expected Playing Lineup)- Lee Chun Wong, Roberto Ramos, Lee Hyung-Jong, Jeon Kun-Woo, Kim Min-Sung, Kim-Hyun-Soo, Park Yong-Taik, Lee Chun-Woong, Chae Eun-Seong
Samsung Lions (Expected Playing Lineup)– Kim Sang-su, Kim Jae-hyun, Park Chan-do, Choi Seon-ho, Kim Heon-gon, Kim Dong-yub, Lee Sung-gyu, Kang Min-ho, Hong Jung-woo
Samsung Lions are being led by Kim Dong Yub who leads the offensive department with 8 successful hits from 17 attempts. He can be a solid option to have on your Dream11 team.
Lee Sung Gyu is a very good player on current form for he has 7 runs from 7 hits. Park Chan-Do is another player who can pop up with something special. He has 5 runs against his name and is one of the first names on the teamsheet.
Roberto Ramos is definitely a safe choice, for he has been one of the consistent players in the league, and the same can be said about Kim Hyun Soo as well.
LG Twins’ Lee Chun Woong and Chae Eun Seong are too hot to handle for they have accumulated 26 runs between them.
The last game was a timely reminder that except NC Dinos, who are playing at a completely different level at the moment, there’s not much to differ the other teams in the league and on any given day, any team can beat anyone. That said, the momentum is a big thing in sport, and Samsung Lions earned a bit of that from the win in the last game. LG Twins are also not lacking in that department, and that’s why backing the hosts to win this game is our call.
