First win over Seoul in two years, first three-game winning streak of the season…Pohang aims for ‘two birds with one stone’ in first August game 

Pohang Steelers aim to kill two birds with one stone against FC Seoul.

Pohang will host FC Seoul in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Seoul World Cup Stadium on Thursday. It is a meeting between second-place Pohang (44 points) and third-place Seoul (37 points).

Pohang finished July in second place despite losing key players. While they are consolidating their second place, they cannot afford to let their guard down as only four points separate third through eighth place. There are no guarantees that Jung Jae-hee, Shim Sang-min, and Kim Jong-woo will be back against Seoul, but there is a good chance that they will return one by one.

On top of that, Pohang has shown weakness against Seoul recently. The two meetings this season have ended in 1-1 draws. On both occasions, they conceded an early goal to Seoul and were forced to play from behind. Last season, Pohang also faced Seoul three times, drawing one and losing two.

The 2021 season is no different. They have met four times, winning the first meeting 2-1 but drawing the next three. They haven’t won in over two years, since an away win on April 10, 2021. Furthermore, Seoul hasn’t won since reorganizing under Ahn Ik-Su. In six head-to-head matches since Ahn’s arrival, they have drawn three and lost three. As they are in a battle for second place, a win over Seoul would give Pohang’s second-place finish even more momentum.

Pohang will also be looking for their first three-game league winning streak of the season. Pohang has only won two games in a row four times this season. They’ve won three in a row once, in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and in the 19th and 20th rounds, but they haven’t won three in a row in the league. Pohang is on a two-game winning streak, having defeated Jeju United (4-2) and Jeonbuk Hyundai (2-1) before the break.온라인카지노

In addition, Pohang and Seoul traded Han Chan-hee and Lee Seung-mo in the summer transfer window. This is their first matchup since the trade. Both Han Chan-hee and Lee Seung-mo have been given playing time in their new jerseys since the trade. It will be interesting to see if they can put a ‘spell’ on each other.

Seoul also has a scoring problem after the departure of Hwang Eui-jo (Nottingham Forest). Park Dong-jin (Busan I-Park) also moved to the team on loan. That’s why the team has high hopes for Bjorn Johnson, the 196-centimeter striker they brought in during the summer transfer window.
