Gangwon FC, which succeeded in reversing the mood with the FA Cup victory, will drive the momentum and challenge for victory in the FC Seoul away game.
Gangwon, led by coach Choi Yong-soo, will play against FC Seoul in the 15th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ at Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul at 4:30 pm on the 28th. Gangwon is currently in 11th place with 2 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses, 11 points, while Seoul is in 2nd place with 7 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, 24 points.
As you can see from the rankings, there is a difference in power between the two teams. Seoul is currently the top scorer Na Sang-ho (8 goals), national team striker Hwang Eui-jo, former national team captain Ki Sung-yong, and foreign players Osmar and Palosevich. There are also many national team players by age, such as Lee Tae-seok and Kim Shin-jin.
However, in their first match against Seoul this season, Gangwon won 3-2 thanks to Lee Woong-hee’s dramatic winning goal. It was also Gangwon’s first win this season. The atmosphere isn’t bad either. In the league, they are on a scoreless and consecutive draw (1 draw, 3 losses) in 4 games in a row, but they regained confidence by winning a dramatic 3-2 victory in the FA Cup Round of 16 against Gimpo FC held on the 24th.
Although Gimpo belongs to K-League 2, they are the only undefeated team (7 wins, 5 draws) in K-League 1 and 2 this season. In other words, Gangwon became the first team to lose to Gimpo this season. In particular, it is encouraging that they escaped from the scoring drought, which is regarded as Gangwon’s biggest problem this season. Manager Choi Yong-soo also said, “Recently, the flow has not been good, and it is regrettable that we allowed 2 runs, but it is encouraging that we scored 3 points. Unlike usual, the game went smoothly from the side,” he said, “and it was a game where the players could find confidence.”메이저사이트
However, Gangwon had to play against Seoul in a physical inferiority. Seoul, which lost to Gimpo in a penalty shootout in the third round of the FA Cup, takes an eight-day break without a midweek game before going to Gangwon. On the other hand, Gangwon only rested for four days. Manager Choi Yong-soo said, “The next game is an away game in Seoul. We will fight under various adverse conditions, but I hope that today’s atmosphere will continue then.”
