Daejeon Hana Citizen, who is aiming for an undefeated six games after the opening, will face Suwon FC for the first time in three years.
Daejeon Hana Citizen will play the 6th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ with Suwon FC at 3:00 pm on the 9th at Suwon Sports Complex. Daejeon has gone undefeated in 5 games since opening (3 wins, 2 draws) and is in second place in the league (11 points), while Suwon FC is in 9th place (4 points).
Last round, Daejeon won by a thrilling one goal difference. Daejeon, which had its first match in April at home to FC Seoul, continued a good flow from the beginning of the first half and scored the opening goal in the 14th minute. A pass from the back was connected to Thiago. Thiago’s shot led to an own goal. Six minutes later, Jo Yoo-min’s additional goal widened the gap even more.
Seoul counterattacked and balanced 2-2, but the final winner was Daejeon. In the 43rd minute of the second half, substitute Massa received a cross from Kim In-kyun and scored a dramatic winning goal. It was the moment when they accomplished the feat of capturing Seoul after 19 years.
They are undefeated in 5 games since the opening (3 wins, 2 draws). Round 1 – About half of Robin is running second in the league at the end바카라. Ulsan Hyundai is at the top, followed by Daejeon and Pohang Steelers. In particular, Pohang and Pohang are tied on points, but Daejeon, which boasts strong firepower, is ahead in many points (Daejeon 11 points, Pohang 8 points) and is recording second place. Daejeon and Ulsan are the only teams that have averaged more than 2 goals per game over 5 matches. Together, they scored 11 points. It is encouraging that they have a similar level of offensive power to defending champion Ulsan.
Now, we have to carry that momentum to the Suwon FC expedition. The latest head-to-head is in 2020. At that time, Daejeon won the first game, but lost both the following two games. At the reunion after 3 years, they are seeking revenge. Suwon FC is slowing down with 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses in the first 5 games of this season. We have to attack this part because we are showing uneasiness on the defensive side by giving up 8 runs.
The key player for this is Kim In-kyun. Kim In-kyun moved to Daejeon from Asan Chungnam last year. Kim In-gyun, whose potential was recognized by winning the K League 2 Young Player Award in the 2021 season, played 35 games, including the promotion playoffs, in his first season, scoring 7 goals and 3 assists.
He is showing off his improved skills this season. Kim In-kyun played in all 5 games and scored 2 goals and 1 assist. Notably, he was a substitute in all five matches. He came in in the second half and energized the attack, leading the uptrend of Daejeon. In the last game, he also assisted Martha’s winning goal with a reckless breakthrough, leading to a victory against FC Seoul in 19 years. We are also looking forward to the performance of Kim In-gyun in this match.
Head coach Lee Min-seong said, “I will do my best to continue the undefeated record and maintain a good atmosphere until the next home game against Ulsan.”
