12th place Suwon (5 points) suffered the worst slump after opening 10 games without a win (2 draws, 8 losses), and then won its first victory in the late season against Incheon in the 11th round. In the match, Suwon lost both possession and number of shots to Incheon, but in the 29th minute of the first half, Suwon defended with all its strength to protect Lee Ki-je’s free-kick goal, earning three precious points.
Suwon, who had a difficult chance of rebounding, will challenge for the first consecutive win of the season in the 12th round against Jeonbuk. This match is also the official debut of coach Kim Byung-soo, who was newly appointed as Suwon’s head coach. Director Kim Byeong-soo returned to the field in about a year and a half after leaving Gangwon in November 2021, and we are looking forward to seeing how the unique tactical color called ‘Byeong-soo Ball’ can be applied to Suwon.
Against this, 10th place Jeonbuk (11 points) was also sluggish with 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses after the opening. Since Jeonbuk introduced the promotion and relegation system in 2013, they have never fallen to the Final B, and as a strong K-League team that has won seven league titles in the last 10 years, they can no longer lose their pride.
Jeonbuk drew 1-1 with acting coach Kim Doo-hyun at the helm in the previous 11th round against Seoul. In the game that day, Gustavo scored in 11 seconds in the first half, which is the K-League’s shortest scoring tie record and Gustavo’s first goal of the season. This season, Jeonbuk’s 4 foreign players (Gustavo, Amano Jun, Hafa Silva, Andre Luiz) could only score 3 goals until the 11th round, and Jeonbuk can only rise if they score.
Meanwhile, Suwon and Jeonbuk drew 1-1 in the second round of the match. The second confrontation of the season between the two teams busy on their way to get out of the lower ranks will be held on the 10th (Wednesday) at 7:30 pm at Suwon World Cup Stadium.
Seoul caught both rabbits in terms of performance and box office success in the first round robin (1-11R) of the K-League 1 this season.
First of all, the score was 2nd (20 points), which is a five-step increase compared to the 7th place during the same period last season.
In addition, Seoul attracted a total of 154,954 spectators in the five games held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium this season, recording an average spectator of 30,991. Of the 25 K-League teams this season, Seoul is the only team with an average attendance of over 30,000. In particular, Seoul is showing off its popularity by surpassing 30,000 spectators for the last three games in a row. 메이저사이트
Thanks to the team performance and box office success, the individual skills of the players also rose. First of all, Seoul’s signature striker Na Sang-ho is currently the sole leader in scoring (7 goals) in the K League 1, Im Sang-hyeop and Palosevich each scored 3 goals, and Hwang Eui-jo and Park Dong-jin each scored 2 goals. It’s bursting. As a result, Seoul is also on the K-League 1 most scoring team (22 goals, tied with Ulsan).
Meanwhile, Seoul lost the first goal to Gustavo in 11 seconds in the first half against Jeonbuk in the 11th round, but Park Dong-jin’s header goal in the 33rd minute of the second half led to a 1-1 draw and earned a valuable point.
After a pleasant first half, Seoul’s upward trend continues in the second round robin. Seoul’s 12th round opponent is Gwangju. Seoul is undefeated in 8 consecutive matches (6 wins, 2 draws) against Gwangju, and won 2-0 in the second round this season. The match between Seoul and Gwangju, the second match of the season, will be held on the 9th (Tuesday) at 7:30 pm at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
