The dictionary meaning of ‘IF’ is ‘if only’. With the slogan ‘If I become a soccer journalist’, started with the idea that anyone can become a soccer journalist. Together with the ‘No. 1’ soccer magazine ‘FourFourTwo’, which has the largest circulation in the world, will cover various soccer news from the K League to the EPL and La Liga. Stay tuned! [Editor’s note].
Jeju, which has slumped to ninth place in the league with three draws and six losses in its last nine games, and Gangwon, which has fallen to the bottom of the table, will look to rebound.
Jeju United and Gangwon FC will meet in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Jeju World Cup Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on June 6. Currently, Jeju is in ninth place with 30 points, while Incheon is in last place with 16 points. The three points in this match are more important than ever for both teams, who have not been on a good run of form lately.
Jeju struggles to find its center amid departures of key players
Gone are the days of Jeju’s unstoppable rise. Up until the last 16 rounds, Jeju was unbeaten in eight league games and in second place. Now, their winless streak has stretched to nine games (three draws and six losses) and they are in ninth place.
First, injuries have been a problem for Jeju this season. Captain Choi Young-joon suffered a long-term injury early in the season and has yet to return, while Koo Ja-cheol hasn’t played many games all season. Lee Chang-min left the team due to military obligations, and Ahn Hyun-beom, who was also called up to the national team, had to be sent to Jeonbuk. It seems like the team hasn’t been able to find a way to fill the void.
No coach change is working… Gangwon showing signs of life
Gangwon has been stuck at the bottom of the table alongside Suwon since the beginning of the season. It’s a far cry from last season, when they made it to the Final A in dramatic fashion. They don’t have any big names, but at the same time, they don’t have any obvious reinforcements. Add to that the fact that their tactically crucial top resources were not able to contribute much, and they continued to struggle.
Eventually, Kang Won pulled out the knife. They parted ways with Choi Yong-soo and appointed Yoon Jeong-hwan. However, the usual coach change didn’t work for Kangwon. After six games, the team had four draws and two losses. Not only did they not win a single game, but they also lost both of their head-to-head matches against Suwon, which pushed them to the bottom of the table.
4 in most goals conceded: Jeju – #5 in team goals scored: Gangwon
Jeju and Gangwon’s weaknesses are polar opposites. Jeju’s scoring isn’t bad, but their defense is shaky. They are fourth in the league in team goals conceded (34), behind Suwon FC, Daejeon, and Suwon. They have conceded 20 goals during their winless streak. That’s at least two goals per game.
Gangwon has an extremely poor offense. They have only scored 15 goals in 24 games already this season. The team’s goal total is by far the worst in the league. Aside from Park Sang-hyuk, who is currently third in the league, no other player has scored more than two goals. Even their key striker, Yang Hyun-joon, recently moved to Celtic.온라인카지노
Both teams face each other at a tougher point than ever. However, there is a point where Jeju has a little more to look forward to. Last season, they played Gangwon and
