Can Lee Seung-woo be the hero of the summer ‘Suwon Derby’?
Can Suwon FC forward Lee Seung-woo (25) be the hero of the ‘Suwon Derby’?
Suwon FC will host Suwon Samsung in the 25th round of the K League 1 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on May 5 at 7 pm. This is the third ‘Suwon Derby’ of the season.
The first element of this match is the ‘breaking of the seal’ for the home team Suwon Samsung. After spending about three months at the bottom of the table since April, Suwon finally escaped from 12th place thanks to an upturn in July. Led by head coach Byung-soo “Byungsubol” Kim, the team recorded two wins and three draws against Daegu FC (7th), Daejeon Hana Citizens (6th), Pohang Steelers (2nd), Ulsan Hyundai (1st), and Gangwon FC (12th) last month, adding nine points to their tally to finish 11th in the league (4W6D14L18). Only two points separate them from 10th-place Suwon FC. A win for Suwon Samsung today would mean a swap of positions between the two teams.
Suwon FC, on the other hand, has gone eight games without a win (D2, L6), including a recent three-game losing streak. The offense, which has been rated as a strength, has become dull, and the defense, which has been pointed out as a weakness, is even more precarious. The balance is completely off, with eight goals scored and 21 conceded during this period.
It’s a meeting of two teams with opposite moods. The key to the game will be whether they have regrouped during this short break. Especially for Suwon FC, all eyes will be on the toes of Lee Seung-woo.
Lee made his K League debut last year and proved his talent by scoring 14 league goals. This season, however, he has only scored three league goals. The Suwon FC offense is still in dire need of his services.
Lee also vowed to play well for the fans.
Lee, who joined Team K-League for the first leg of the ‘Coupang Play Series’ against Atletico Madrid on March 27, spoke to reporters before the game and said, “Suwon FC’s performance hasn’t been good lately, so I can’t have a good face,” adding, “The last opponent we beat was Suwon Samsung. We’ve already beaten them twice, so we’ll bring home a third win.” About Suwon Samsung, Lee said, “They have won two games in a row recently. The Suwon Samsung players also said that the game is fun, so we have no intention of losing the Suwon derby.” “We want to show great play, not just goals,” he added.온라인카지노
In the previous meetings, Suwon FC won both times 2-1. Despite his lack of impressive performances, Lee will be aiming for the Suwon Samsung goal today.
