These are two teams standing on the edge of a cliff. Suwon Samsung and Gangwon, who are not victorious after the opening, will engage in a 90-minute soccer battle. Only one team survives.
Suwon Samsung and Gangwon FC will face off in the 5th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 2nd. Currently, Suwon is in 12th place with 1 draw and 3 losses, and Gangwon is in 11th place with 2 draws and 2 losses.
Both teams are at the bottom of the leaderboard. Suwon lost 0-1 to promoted team Gwangju FC in their opening game at home, conceding a theatrical goal to Asani. In the following match against Jeonbuk Hyundai, a good performance and a draw gave fans anticipation and the media focused on it. However, they lost to Suwon FC and Daejeon Hana Citizen in the 3rd and 4th rounds, and after the 4th round of the season, the fans demanded the resignation of coach Lee Byung-geun while ‘blocking the bus’. That’s why Suwon has such a bad atmosphere.
The situation in Gangwon is also not good. In the first match against Daejeon, they lost by scoring two runs in the first half, and also lost to Ulsan Hyundai in the second round. Afterwards, they drew against Daegu FC and Pohang Steelers and failed to win in four matches. The situation is slightly better than Suwon, but the atmosphere is not as good.
Suwon needs Ahn Byung-joon to survive. Ahn Byung-jun’s role is very important in the situation where Oh Hyun-kyu has left. However, during the 4 games, Ahn Byung-Jun was unable to save scoring chances and was isolated from the opponent’s defense, so he could not show his good past. There is news that Mulich, who was recruited as a substitute for Oh Hyeon-gyu, is returning from injury and is training, but it is difficult to digest full-time, so Ahn Byung-jun must play the role of a fixer. 스포츠토토
Gangwon’s main scoring route is ‘counterattack’. Gangwon, which was on the rise last season thanks to the great performances of left and right wingers Kim Dae-won and Yang Hyun-jun, but this season is struggling with injuries to Lee Jeong-hyeop and Yang Hyun-jun, and is scoring the fewest goals (2 goals) in the league this season. Due to injuries to key strikers, foreign players Gallego and Dino will play, but Dino was evaluated as having poor form from the beginning of the season. Previous coach Choi Yong-soo’s 3-back tactic showed stable defense and sharp counterattacks, but this season, the defensive strength is also low, so they are unable to win. From the point of view of Gangwon, it is urgent to improve the defensive organization.
The opponents of both teams showed an overwhelming difference with 16 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses based on Suwon, but in the 4 confrontations last season, they were equal with 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss. Both teams are preparing for a 6-point game in order to escape from the bottom and win.
