Daegu FC overcame a numerical disadvantage to earn three points away at Suwon Samsung. Daegu leapfrogged into the top half of the table, while Suwon remained at the bottom (12th).
Daegu won 1-0 against Suwon in the 30th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on Sunday. Daegu moved up to fourth place (11W, 11D, 8L, 44 points), while Suwon failed to escape the bottom of the table (5W, 7D, 18L, 22 points).
A busy road ahead There was a lot at stake in the clash between the two teams. Daegu, who were in seventh place the day before (16th), could leapfrog Suwon to fourth if they beat them on the day. As Gangwon FC had beaten Jeonbuk Hyundai the day before to move up to 11th place (4W, 12D, 14L, 24P), Suwon, who dropped to 12th, needed to win against Daegu to keep their hopes of staying in the top flight alive.
However, both Daegu and Suwon were plagued by power leaks. Between them, both teams had more than a dozen players missing due to injuries, suspensions, and U-24 national team call-ups. “We really want to win this game as the players who left have filled the void with great desire,” said Daegu head coach Choi Won-kwon. “In a game like this, it’s important to score first and stay focused in the second half,” said Suwon head coach Kim Byung-soo.메이저놀이터
Neither team created many chances in the early stages of the game. They traded the ball back and forth in the midfield. It was Suwon who made the first change. They took off Kim Kyung-jung, Park Hee-joon, and Kim Bo-kyung at halftime and brought on Lee Ki-je, Mullich, and Werikpopo. In the 11th minute of the second half, the tide seemed to turn in Suwon’s favor when Daegu’s Beltola was sent off for elbowing Werikpopo on VAR (video assistant referee).
However, Daegu substituted Lee Yong-rae for Park Se-jin in the 15th minute of the second half to crack down on the back door. Suwon began to look desperate to stop Daegu’s counter-attacks, and it was Daegu’s Vasellus who finally put the finishing touches on the match in stoppage time when he converted a personalized chance.
