K-League 1 (Part 1) Suwon FC and Suwon Samsung, who have a conflicting atmosphere, will face each other in the ‘Suwon Derby’ this weekend.
Suwon FC and Suwon Samsung will face off in the third round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ at 2:00 pm on the 11th at Suwon Sports Complex. After only 1 draw and 1 loss in 2 games since the opening, the two teams are aiming for victory in the season’s wild rivalry.
Both teams only managed to accumulate 1 victory point, but the atmosphere of the two teams is quite different. The home team, Suwon FC, was disappointed with their lower-than-expected performances until the 2nd round. The attack power, which was a strong point, was not displayed properly. The best technician in the K-League, Bit Garam Yoon, joined the midfield, but he could not wash away the frustration in the attacking work. Suwon FC coach Kim Do-kyun said, “It seems that Yoon Bit-garam feels the burden during the build-up process. Still, I think he will be fine in the future.” He admitted that he still needs time to integrate into the team. To make matters worse, Lee Seung-woo, the team’s ace, was unable to play against Suwon Samsung due to the aftermath of his exit against Pohang Steelers (1-2 loss) on the 4th.
Conversely, the atmosphere at Suwon Samsung is not bad. It has definitely improved its performance compared to last year, when it was in danger of being relegated to the K-League 2 (2nd division) by going through the promotion playoffs. It is the strength of the midfielder added by Kim Bo-kyung, who changed his uniform from Jeonbuk Hyundai. Koh Seung-beom and Lee Jong-seong stood firm, and Kim Bo-kyung’s creativity was added. In particular, in the away game against Jeonbuk on the 5th (1-1 draw), despite conceding the opening goal, they reached the brink of victory with their overwhelming control of the midfield. Lee Byeong-geun, coach of Suwon Samsung, raised his voice, saying, “I saw the possibility of getting better in the future,” and “I will bring the victory that fans want in the Suwon derby.” However, fire support at the forefront to put an end to victory is desperately needed. 토토사이트
In the previous K-League Suwon Derby, Suwon FC leads with 6 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses. Since Suwon FC was re-promoted in the 2021 season, if you narrow it down, it is 5 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. It is the result of the rise of Suwon FC and the decline of Suwon Samsung until last season. Through the results of the first confrontation of this season, we can gauge the future of the Suwon derby.
Apart from that, there are many games to keep an eye on. Daejeon Hana Citizen, who announced the return of ‘Soccer Special City’, will meet Pohang, who is running a two-game winning streak, at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 11th. The FC Seoul-Ulsan Hyundai match, which will be held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 12th, is attracting attention as new national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann is scheduled to watch the match. Also, Jeonbuk, which started off uneasy with 1 draw and 1 loss, will play against promoted team Gwangju FC at 4:30 pm on the same day at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.
