The ‘top water’ has been sorted out. Ulsan Hyundai’s early victory in the ‘1st round’ was decided. It’s not over. The ‘fun’ factor remains. It’s a relegation fight.
It is a battle between three teams. 10th place Suwon FC (32 points), 11th place Gangwon (27 points), and 12th place Suwon Samsung (26 points) are candidates. The biggest issue is ‘Let’s not just end up in last place and be automatically relegated to K League 2 (Second Division).’ The 12th place team in K League 1 will be directly relegated without a promotion playoff (PO). As of the 30th, the team automatically relegated on the leaderboard is Suwon Samsung. But we don’t know yet. The point difference between Suwon Samsung and Gangwon is only 1 point. Depending on the results of the remaining three games, there is a possibility that the face of last place will change.
Suwon FC has a high chance of not suffering automatic relegation. They only need to accumulate 4 points from the remaining 3 games. Suwon FC recorded 36 points and avoided automatic relegation. This is because even if Suwon Samsung wins 9 points through all wins, it only has 35 points. However, there are scenarios in which even Suwon FC cannot be reassured. Assuming that Suwon FC loses all 3 games, if Suwon wins all 3 games and Gangwon wins 2 and loses 1, Suwon FC will fall to last place and fall to K-League 2 for the first time in 3 years.
The showdown, a 6-point match, begins. Suwon FC will play a guillotine match with Suwon Samsung on the 12th and clash with Gangwon on the 25th. If Suwon FC wins the ‘Suwon Derby’, they can avoid falling to last place and maintain 10th place, where they have to play promotion/demotion PO with the winner of K League 2 PO.
Suwon FC coach Kim Do-gyun called for “attack forward” even at a time when “point management” was important. Coach Kim said, “I can play defensive soccer as much as I want. However, I don’t want to show that to the fans who pay money to visit the stadium. Although we concede a lot of goals, we will actively use the four-back defensive line that can score a lot of goals.” He said.
Suwon Samsung had a really disappointing match against Daejeon on the 29th. They took a 2-0 lead in the first half with consecutive goals from Kim Joo-chan and Acosti, but they were unable to prevent Thiago and Massa from scoring at the end of the second half, and the score was 2-2. If Suwon Samsung had won, they could have pushed Gangwon down to last place and moved up to 11th place. However, the unstable defense, which had been pointed out as a problem throughout the season, ultimately could not last the remaining 15 minutes. It is assessed that Acting Manager Yeom Ki-hoon’s failure to use the replacement card was also the reason why 3 points were changed to 1 point. Suwon will have great hope if they win the game against Suwon FC on the 12th. Even 10th place Suwon FC can be pressured with a 3-point gap. The hope index for remaining increases. However, if they lose or draw against Suwon FC and Seoul, they will have to play a game against Gangwon on the 2nd of next month to decide their fate.짱구카지노
The most anxious is Gangwon. Although I am in the position of being chased, I am more concerned about being chased. They are ahead of Suwon Samsung, but only 1 point behind. Although the head coach was changed to coach Yoon Jeong-hwan, the effect was minimal. Due to the combination of the offense relying on Gabriel and the defensive instability, the team scored a buzzer-beater just before the end of the game, leading 1-0 in the last game against Jeju. If we fail to overcome the barrier of Daejeon on the 12th, it will be difficult to escape the pressure of being in last place until the end of the season.
