SSMG vs GWN Dream11 Match Preview: Having won the first game of the season last week, Sangju Sangmu FC will be looking to clock the back-to-back wins when they entertain Gwangju FC in the Korean League on Saturday (IST). The 4-0 defeat in the opening game against Ulsan reminded about the last season when they flirted with the relegation zone all season and managed to save their top-tier tag in the playoffs. But they put certain things on track in the very next game when they won 2-0 at home against Gangwon. But the season is long and they know they have to carve out a decent run to pull themselves clear of the relegation threat. Gwangju FC earned the promotion back to the league following a solid K League 2 season. But the party is over and it’s serious business now. Even at this early stage in the season, they are fighting for their lives, and top-tier tag, for they are propping up the table having lost the first two games of the season.
Following a 4-0 mauling in the opening game of the season against Ulsan, head coach Kim Tae-Wan made three changes to the playing 11, replacing Moon Seon-Min and Kim Sun-Woo with Park Yong-Woo and An Tae-Hyun. And the decision worked as the team looked more solid in the midfield and carved out a deserving 2-0 win over Gangwon.
That result and performance should see the hosts stick with the same playing 11, and so we expect no change to Sangmu’s playing 11 in this game.
It means, Hwang Byeong will definitely be in between the posts, with the likes of Kan Sang-Woo, Kim Jin-Hyeok and Bae Jae-Woo providing him cover at the back.
Park Young-Woo, Han Suk-Jong and Kim Min-Hyeok should accommodate the midfield, while An Tae Hyun, Jin Sung Wook and Song Seung Min should lead the attack.
Moon Seon-Min may be considered right from the off after playing a starring role from the bench in the last game.
Gwangju FC made wholesale changes to their playing 11 in the last round, and head coach Park Jin-Seop could opt for similar tactics here as well after an underwhelming performance in the last match.
That means goalkeepers Lee Jin-Hyung and Yoon Pyeong-Gook both will be fighting for a place on the teamsheet.

SSMG vs GWN Dream11 key players:
Sangmu’s winger Kang Sang-Woo, who can also play as a left-back, is in the red-hot form at the moment and is coming fresh off a goal-scoring performance in the last game. He can be a very good addition to the team.
Moon Seon-Min could be a dark horse if he gets a start here. He came off the bench and grabbed the opportunity with a goal in the 78th minute.
Sangju’s midfielder Han Suk-Jong set up the second goal. He is a good creative player and should not be overlooked.
Gwangju’s main threat will come from Felipe Silva. He is their main man upfront and is more than capable of doing something good in this match. He topped the scoring charts for the team last season with 19 goals.
