Can Seoul make the most of home advantage?

FC Seoul suffered a 3-1 loss out at Gangwon last weekend. Rolling over from last season that is six top flight games without a win from the club now.

They have lost four of the six games in that sequence as well. They did finish third in last season’s league. But their form did fall away at the end of the campaign.

Their home record last term was W8 D6 L5 and they managed to earn just one point from their last four home games. Only 58% of FC Seoul’s home games in the last campaign made it over 2.5 goals.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January)

The last time that these two clubs met was in 2017 when they traded wins. Seoul have won their last three home fixtures against Gwangju. The overall head to head is in favour of Seoul at W11 D2 L2.


Big task ahead for Gwangju

Gwangju are back in the top flight and they opened their account at home last weekend. They fell 2-0 to Seongnam. That is the last three top flight games that they have lost now, going back to that 2017 relegation season.

Gwangju have won only one of their last 21 K League 1 away fixtures. So punters may have a tough time in finding enough reason to back them, unless taking on a bit of new season optimism.

Each of the last six meetings between Seoul and Gwangju have finished over 2.5 goals. It may just be worth a flutter on this one going the opposite way and finishing under the goal line.

On the opening weekend of the K League only 33% of games went over 2.5 goals. You can combine that with only 58% of Seoul’s home games last season making it above the line.


FC Seoul vs Gwangju FC Betting Advice

FC Seoul badly fell away at the end of last season and this one didn’t get off to a great start for them. But they are at home against a newly promoted side and can be backed to put things together.


Key Facts – FC Seoul vs Gwangju FC Betting Tip

  • FC Seoul and Gwangju both lost their season openers
  • This is the first meeting since the 2017 season
  • Gwangju FC have won 1 of their last 21 away games in the top flight


The home win has the most appeal in the match outright. But the other way we would lean, especially playing behind closed doors with a non-existent atmosphere, is an under 2.5 goals option.
