Suwon Samsung, the bottom of the K-League 1 in professional football, with a slump in the opening seven games in a row and the loss of the command tower, is looking for a chance to rebound in a super match against rival FC Seoul.
Suwon will play an away match against Seoul and Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 Round 8 at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 22nd at 2pm.
Suwon is driven to the edge of a cliff. There is no win with 2 draws and 5 losses (2 points) in 7 matches since the start of this season.
The opening seven games without a win is also the record for the most games without a win since the foundation of Suwon.
I was anxious from the start. After losing 0-1 to ‘promoted team’ Gwangju FC in the opening game, Suwon tried to turn the tide by drawing 1-1 with Jeonbuk Hyundai in the second round, but then lost two games in a row.
They lost 1-2 to Suwon FC and lost 1-3 to Daejeon Hana Citizen.
After drawing 1-1 with Gangwon FC in the 5th round, they lost again to Ulsan Hyundai (1-2 loss) and Jeju United (2-3 loss).
Eventually, on the 17th, head coach Lee Byeong-geun resigned due to poor performance, and head coach Choi Seong-yong took the temporary helm.
The next opponent in the worst atmosphere is Seoul.
If they lose again in the super match, which is considered one of the best derbies in the K-League, there is a high possibility that the arrows of criticism will be directed at the players this time.
Suwon is determined to reproduce the same trend as in 2017 with Seoul as its wealth.
Suwon, led by head coach Seo Jeong-won at the time, was undefeated (5 draws and 1 loss) in the opening 6 games. After rebounding in the 7th game, he finished the season in 3rd place.
Head coach Choi Seong-yong, who happened to be acting head coach, worked as a coaching staff under Seo Jeong-won’s system.
Of course, the situation is worse than then. At the time, there was only one defeat, but this time it’s five.
On the other hand, Seoul has a good atmosphere. They are in 4th place in the league with 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses (13 points) from the opening 7 matches. They are undefeated in 2 matches in a row (1 win, 1 draw) in the recent league.
After defeating Daegu FC 3-0 at home, they drew 1-1 with the Pohang Steelers away.
Seoul, which brought national goal scorer Hwang Eui-jo on loan, boasts an average of 2 goals per game with 13 goals in 7 games at the beginning of the season.
It is obviously a tough opponent for Suwon’s defense, who is recording the most goals conceded (13 goals) in the league.토토사이트
In terms of overall record, Seoul leads with 39 wins, 25 draws and 35 losses. Last season, they had 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in 4 matches.
