Suwon Samsung will face Suwon FC in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 7 p.m. on May 5 at Suwon World Cup Stadium. Suwon Samsung is in 11th place with 18 points.

Heading into the Suwon derby, Suwon will be without Ahn Chan-ki, Park Dae-won, Kim Joo-won, Ko Myung-seok, Lee Ki-je, Ko Seung-beom, Kazuki, and Lee Sang-min. Jeon Jin-woo, Werik Popo, and Kim Joo-chan will start up front. On the bench will be Lee Sung-joo, Han Ho-gang, Yoo Je-ho, Kim Kyung-jung, Kim Gum-yeol, Acosti, and Mulicic.

These are two teams that need to turn things around before the final round. Suwon Samsung is on a roll this season. Their recent two-game winning streak and five-match unbeaten streak (two wins and three draws) have given them a rebound. Most notably, they beat bottom-feeders Gangwon FC (2-1) and picked up points against leaders Ulsan Hyundai (3-1) and Pohang Steelers (1-1).

The goal drought that has plagued them since the start of the season has also been resolved to some extent. After scoring just 16 goals in their previous 19 matches, the team has scored nine goals in their last five matches. Mulicic (4 goals in 3 games), Kim Joo-chan (2 goals), and Go Seung-beom (2 goals and 1 assist), the ‘hard worker’, have been outstanding.

It’s important to keep the momentum going. Suwon Samsung will face clubs ranked higher than them, including Suwon FC (10th), Jeonbuk Hyundai (5th), Jeju United (9th), Gwangju FC (4th), and FC Seoul (3rd) before the September A-Match break. If they fall here, they could fall again.

“We focused on recovery during the break and had a week to restart with a clear mind, and the following week we prepared by thinking about what we need to strengthen, the condition of the squad, and how to utilize our resources,” said Kim Byung-soo.

Ambitious new signing Werikpopo will start. “He’s a very pure player. He seems to have a clear mind. He’s not selfish and he doesn’t refuse to defend. Sometimes he has speed and sometimes he doesn’t. We’ll have to see for ourselves on the field today. He’s a player I’m looking forward to seeing.”

The starting lineup changed. Instead of Yang Hyung-mo, Ahn Chan-ki will be in goal. “We only have two goalkeepers to choose from. Ahn Chan-ki will be under a lot of pressure, but I thought he would be suitable. Yang Hyung-mo needs time because she has a fracture. We’ll have to wait and see,” he explained.

Suwon Samsung remains unbeaten. Coach Kim Byung-soo has been taken off oxygen. “We’re not at the stage where we can relax yet. “I think it’s a good thing and we need to stay focused. I believe our players will do well. I hope they realize that playing soccer is a lot of fun and that they are happy. If that happens, I think we can climb to a higher ranking.”

Kim Byung-soo made a ‘love confession’ to his players after the win over Gangwon. He said, “It came to me like a flash. In fact, everyone is tired and anxious. I thought the best word to use to bring out good energy was love. It’s unconditional and selfless. I wanted the players to feel lighter, so I used the word love,” he said with a smile.

In conclusion, Coach Kim Byung-soo said, “The thing that surprised me the most when I came to Suwon Samsung was the support of the fans. It’s really touching. They gave us strength when we were struggling. I want to promise that I will do my best for Suwon Samsung with as much passion as the fans,” he said, expressing his sincere gratitude.
