GWN vs PHG Dream11 Prediction: Gwangju FC vs Pohang Steelers – 26 June 2020 (Gwangju)
Gwangju FC will take on Pohang Steelers in the league match of the Korean K1 League. Both the teams have done a decent job so far in the league.
Pohang are the fifth spot whereas Gwangju are at the seventh position in the league table. Pohang’s record over Gwangju is very superior as they have won their last four encounters against them and they would want to continue that as they are coming on the back of a very good victory against the strong Gangwon side.
Gwangju, on the other hand, faced a defeat against the strong Gangwon side in the last game. Pohang’s attack has been on fire this season as they have already scored 15 goals in just 8 games this season whereas Gwangju have scored just 9 but the defence of Gwangju’s side has been way good better. This game can be a really close one.
GWN vs PHG Match Prediction

GWN vs PHG Dream11 Picks
Dream 11 Goal-Keeper
L Jin-Hyeong (Price 8.5) will be our Goal-Keeper in this game. He is likely to earn more goal-saving points as Pohang are expected to attack more in this game.
Dream 11 Defenders
H Chang-Rae (Price 8.5), K Kwang-Seok (Price 8.5), K Wan-Kyu (Price 8.5), and P Jae-Woo (Price 8) will be our defenders from the Pohang Steelers. Gwangju’s attack has not been very lethal so far as compared to the Pohang’s attack. So, if there will be any clean-sheet then it will be of the Pohang’s side. Wan-Kyu even scored a goal in the last game and that’s why all the defenders of Pohang are picked in the team.
Dream 11 Midfielders
A Palocevic (Price 9.5) and L Seung-Mo (Price 9) will be our midfielders from the Pohang side. Both of them are really good players. Palocevic has been in a brilliant form this season with 4 goals and 3 assists to his name already, he is also the main set-piece taker of the squad and should be picked whereas Seung-Mo is also a very good player and has scored 2 goals till now in the league. Both of them will be really good picks
Willyan (Price 9.5) and K Jeong-Hwan (Price 9) will be our midfielders from the Gwangju side. Willyan was injured since the start of the season but he made a brilliant comeback in the game against the Busan side by scoring a goal. In the last season, Willyan had 8 goals and 2 assists and he should be picked whereas K Jeong-Hwan is also playing in the top-3 of Gwanju’s attack and can be a very good pick, he had 4 goals and 2 assists to his name last season. He scored a winning goal against Incheon too.
Dream 11 Strikers
S Iljutcenko (Price 10.5) will be our Striker from the Pohang Steelers side. Iljutcenko has scored six goals till now and has provided quite a few assists too. He is the 2nd highest goal-scorer of the season and would be a must-have option in the team.
F Silva (Price 10.5) will be our Striker from the Gwangju FC side. Felipe has finally found his scoring boots and he has scored 3 goals in the last 4 games. In the last season, he had 19 goals and 3 assists to his name. He will carry the responsibility to score goals for his side.
