LOG vs HAE Dream11 Match Preview: The matches keep coming thick and fast in the Korean Baseball League with the next match set to be played between Lotte Giants and Hanwha Eagles at the Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium on Friday afternoon (IST).
But interestingly, this is the first game between these two outfits, so there will certainly be a sense of unfamiliarity for each other in both camps. The visitors, though, will be high on confidence following an impressive 4-1 win over KIA Tigers in the last game. So they should fancy their chances in this game and should go for the kill right from the off.
The host, on the other hand, must be feeling jaded after coming second-best in the second straight game, for they lost to Doosan Bears and now face an in-form team and hope to avoid a hat-trick of defeats. That said, they are a good team, as, despite the stuttering recent form, they are sitting second on the points table.
Date- Friday, May 15
Time- 3:00 PM (IST)
Stadium: Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium
Lotte Giants: As mentioned, the hosts suffered defeats in the last two games, but they are still the second-best team in the league as far as position on the points table is concerned. They had good moments even in those defeats and if Baseball had the draw system, Giants would have gotten something out of those two matches. Nonetheless, they are likely to go with the same lineup they used in the last game.
Hanwha Eagles: The Eagles have every reason to stick with the same roster they used in the last match. After all, they are coming into this match on the back of a 4-1 win; a result that snapped a four-game skid. So the head coach is likely to trust the same players that got that elusive win in the last match.
Lotte Giants (Expected Playing Lineup)- Han Dong Hui, An Chi-Hong, Dixon Machado, Lee Dae-Ho, Jung Bo-Geun, Min Byung-Hun, Hoon Jung, Seon Ah-Seop, Jeon Jun-Woo
Hanwha Eagles (Expected Playing Lineup)- Song Kwan-Min, Lee Yong-Kyu, Kim Tae-Kyun, Jung Eun-Won, Jung Jin-Ho, Oh Sun-Jin, Jared Hoying, Lee Sung-Yeon, Kim Beom-Soo
Song Kwang Min was one of the standout performers for Hanwa Eagles in the last game. He scored some important runs and looked in great touch. He can be a good and safe addition on your Dream11 Match Prediction team.
Lee Yong Kyu also made a telling contribution with the bat in the last match and can be trusted in the Dream11 teams. He is in good form and having him in the today match prediction side could earn the user valuable points.
From Lotte Giants, Son Ah Seop holds the key for them. He is one of their most constant players with the bat and a lot will depend on him in this game.
Giants will hope that Jeon Jun Woo continues his impressive form with the willow in his hand. Considering, the Grand Leagues are all about risks, he is certainly a player you never know when he may erupt with something special.
Min Byung Hun and Jung Hoon had 15 runs between them and are worth taking a risk in any game.
True that Hanwa Eagles won the last game and will have the wind in their sails, but that doesn’t hide the fact that they have struggled to make a mark in the league so far. Giants, meanwhile, are the second-best team in the league for some reasons, and that’s why backing them to win this game looks a good call.
Outfield: S Ah Seop (VC), J Hoon, M Byung-Hun
Infield: A Chi-Hong, Dixon Machado (C), H Ju Suk, K tae-Kyun
Pitcher: P Jin-Hyung
Catcher: P Dong Won
