10th and last place (12th). This is the report card accepted by Jeonbuk Hyundai, the “absolute dynasty,” and Suwon Samsung, the “prestigious family of yesteryear,” in the “Hana One Q K League 1 2023,” which played 11 games per team and won one round.
Both teams have been gloomy in the early stages of this season. Jeonbuk, which has reached the top of the K-League 9 times since 2009, has fallen to 10th place with 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses and 11 points amid extreme sluggishness. Suwon is more serious. With 1 win, 2 draws and 8 losses, they are in the bottom with 5 points.
A double-digit ranking in K-League 1 is a symbolic position. The 10th and 11th places will play a promotion playoff (PO) with the final 2nd and 3rd places in the K League 2 to determine whether or not they will survive, and the 12th place is a direct relegation. If the current ranking continues, it could be a very shocking season.
Jeonbuk, which has been fully supported by the parent company, has been an absolute powerhouse that has never fallen to Group B (7th to 12th) in the final round since the introduction of the K-League promotion and relegation system in 2013. In fact, Suwon, whose support was cut off, often headed to Final B, but avoided relegation. In the last season, he dramatically stayed until the promotion and relegation PO.
In the end, both teams had the same choice. The command tower was replaced side by side. Suwon was faster. After breaking up with coach Lee Byeong-geun, he signed a contract with coach Kim Byung-soo, who took a year and a half off due to an unfortunate incident. Since 2009, Jeonbuk has parted ways with coach Kim Sang-sik, who has achieved great glory as a player, coach, and manager, and is looking for a new head coach. While head coach Kim Doo-hyeon guards the bench as an acting manager, Park Ji-seong, technical director, lists multiple foreign coaches and is closely examining them.
Like this, Suwon and Jeonbuk, who have no place to back down or sit down, collide at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 10th. If you lose, you will fall into hell, and it is a ‘match at the edge of the cliff’ where hope of reversal may disappear. It’s not that simple a game.토토사이트
Jeonbuk usually laughed. In the last 11 meetings, Jeonbuk had an absolute advantage with 9 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Even in the K-League career record, it leads with 34 wins, 23 draws, and 26 losses. However, the first match of the year, which took place on March 5 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium, ended in a 1-1 draw. Suwon, which was tied to a winless streak (2 draws and 8 losses) in the opening 10 games, but showed decent cohesion against Jeonbuk.
The team that raised the atmosphere in the previous game (round 11) was also Suwon. In an away game against Incheon United, veteran fullback Lee Ki-je scored the winning goal from a free kick to report his first win of the season. On the other hand, Jeonbuk scored the first goal in 11 seconds in the first half in an away game against FC Seoul, but gave up an equalizer at the end of the second half.
