The break is over. Can Suwon Samsung achieve a turnaround at home?
Suwon Samsung, led by coach Kim Byeong-soo, will play the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ home game against Daegu FC at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th.
There is no longer any place to retreat. Suwon remains in 11th place with 5 wins, 7 draws, and 17 losses (22 points) in 29 games this season. It’s relegation zone. This season, the 12th place, the lowest ranked team in K League 1, will be relegated to the second division. The fate of 10th and 11th places will be decided through K League 2 and promotion playoffs (PO).
The situation is in dire need of a reversal. The atmosphere is not very good. Suwon is greatly shaken, having conceded 2 goals and 8 goals in the previous 5 games. During this period, they only recorded 1 win, 1 draw, and 3 losses. In particular, Suwon suffered two consecutive losses before the September international break. In the Gwangju away game, they were beaten 0-4. In the ‘Super Match’ against FC Seoul played at home on the 2nd, they bowed 0-1. Suwon lost 3 games in the Super Match this season. I lost my pride.
There are also numerous injured players. Jang Ho-ik and Lee Sang-min are concentrating on rehabilitation due to long-term injuries. Kwon Chang-hoon and Jeong Seung-won are recovering slowly. Acosti is also not in normal condition due to pain in his adductor muscles. Lee Ki-je’s physical condition after returning to the national team is also a question mark. To make matters worse, Han Ho-gang was sent off in the previous game. I cannot participate in this game. Lee Jong-seong will also not be able to play in the Daegu match due to accumulated warnings.먹튀검증 The only consolation is that Mulic and Bulthuis have improved their condition.
Suwon recorded 1 draw and 1 loss against Daegu this season. In the first match last April, they lost 0-1. In the second match last July, the opponent’s own goal resulted in a 1-1 draw. However, Suwon won 1-0 in the round of 16 of the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup against Daegu last May. At that time, the youngest child, Kim Joo-chan, born in 2004, scored his professional debut goal, giving Suwon victory.
Suwon recharged their energy with an ‘eel dinner’ ahead of the game against Daegu. A team official explained, “A local sponsor provided a special event to support the team.” Attention is focused on whether Suwon, rejuvenated by the company dinner, will be able to create an opportunity for a turnaround at home.
