The joys and sorrows of Suwon FC and Suwon Samsung are mixed.
Suwon FC won 1-0 in the 7th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Jeonbuk Hyundai held at Suwon Sports Complex on the 15th.
Suwon FC overwhelmed Jeonbuk. Lee Kwang-hyeok and Lee Seung-woo, who were substituted early in the first half centered on Lars, shook Jeonbuk with an active appearance. The presence of Yun Bitgaram, who led the attack in the midfield, was also great. A goal by Lars in the 26th minute of the first half led to the winning goal, but it was possible to score multiple goals if he showed concentration in the attacking situation.
Suwon FC’s early season was not good. As the defense, which was a weakness from last season, was shaken, it suffered a whopping 3 losses out of the first 5 games. In particular, in the 5th round, they lost 0-2 to Gwangju FC, a promoted team, and lost their pride.
However, the rebound began in the sixth round. Like Gwangju, they won 5-3 against Daejeon Hana Citizen, who is causing a sensation in the promoted team. Suwon FC’s greatest strength, attack power, exploded. Suwon FC succeeded in winning the first consecutive season by capturing Jeonbuk following the momentum, and also raised the ranking to 6th place.
On the other hand, Suwon faced the worst situation. Suwon lost 2-3 against Jeju United at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on the same day.
Suwon took the lead early in the first half with Basani’s goal. However, Yuri scored an equalizer and Hayes scored a multi-goal, making the score 1-3 in an instant. In the 24th minute of the second half, Yoo Jae-ho’s sensational shot followed a goal, but Jeju finally gave up the victory. 카지노
Suwon, who failed to win again this time, increased the winless march to ‘7 games’ after the opening. The victory point is only 2 points (2 draws and 7 losses), and of course the lowest ranking is 12th. Suwon coach Lee Byeong-geun hinted at his future, saying, “I will take responsibility” after the match against Jeju. In the end, coach Lee Byung-geun left the team on the 17th, and the team will be operated as an agent for the time being.
In a situation where the two teams use the city of Suwon together, Suwon FC is becoming a real trend. In the ‘Suwon Derby’ held in the third round, Suwon FC won 2-1. The difference between the two teams is already 8 points.
Given the difference in performance, the gap could widen further if Suwon does not quickly resolve the current crisis. From Suwon’s point of view, the worst situation is possible, leaving only Suwon FC in the first division.
The number of spectators at home games also reflects this. Suwon FC recorded the most Euro spectators in the club with 9,221 people entering the match against Jeonbuk. Compared to the 6th round match against Daejeon (4421), nearly 5,000 spectators visited Suwon Sports Complex.
On the other hand, the number of spectators for the match between Suwon and Jeju was 5,190. It is the exact opposite of the situation where more than 10,000 people visited in the first round of Gwangju and the fourth round of Daejeon. It’s a look that represents the team’s sluggish situation.
An official from the football world said, “Suwon seems to have lost its direction due to frequent head coach replacements that have been repeated for several years. Because of this, the team’s football style is also not clear. On the other hand, Suwon FC boasted offensive power from last season and provided spectacle to home fans. This season, even the performance is contrasted, and these differences are becoming more prominent.”
