Everyone has their own reasons, but the need for three points remains the same.
Daejeon Hana Citizen and Suwon Samsung will meet on 9 September at Daejeon World Cup Stadium in the 21st round of the Hana WonQ K League 1 2023.
The situation is complicated for both teams. Daejeon is unbeaten in four matches (W1 D3), but has drawn its last three matches in a row. It’s heartbreaking to lose a game you should have won. The standings have also dropped to eighth place with 28 points.
At the bottom of the table, it’s hard to remember the last time Suwon won. Even with Kim Byung-soo’s coaching regime in place, it’s hard to come up with a win.
That’s why they need to exploit each other’s weaknesses. Daejeon head coach Lee Min-sung went with an aggressive formation on the day. He started Yoo Kang-hyun, last year’s top scorer in the K League 2 (second division), as a joker. He also deployed U-20 World Cup ace Bae Joon-ho ahead of Joo Se-jong in central midfield. On the bench, Leandro, Thiago, Lee Hyun-sik, Masa, and Lee Jin-hyun are all attack-minded players.
“I think the time has come for us to go for the kill in Daejeon. I’m worried that if we keep going like this, we’ll end up in a muddy fight,” Lee said, explaining why he chose an offensive line-up.
Yoo Kang-hyun echoed the same sentiment. While the team gave him a chance to start because of the weekend, midweek, and weekend games, he said he had to come to the team and ask to play. “He came to me and took the opportunity. “I think it’s right that the players who are hungry play. That’s not to say that Thiago isn’t desperate. There are parts of him that are overworked, and there are parts of him that think about splitting the squad,” he emphasised.
Suwon deserved the three points. Dropping them would be devastating. He added: “The past trend hasn’t been bad. We did that against Jeju United and FC Seoul. We just didn’t attack as much as we should have. Against Suwon, we must not show these problems.”
Suwon’s problem is psychological. The change of coach should have resulted in a win, but it hasn’t yet. “We need to show concentration. That’s what the players have to do when they enter the field,” he said, adding, “We need to find a way to unleash our individual supernatural powers 메이저놀이터 추천.”
A way out of last place is not yet in sight. “The important thing is to increase the satisfaction of the players. If there are players who are not working hard enough to the point of harming the team, they should be reprimanded strongly. In some cases, I think it’s necessary to exclude them from the roster,” he said, noting that he’s not afraid to use extreme measures to change the atmosphere.
