19th home game against Suwon FC
Keeping the momentum going against Ulsan
In the 26th round of the Korean Football League (K League 1), bottom-ranked Gangwon FC defeated top-ranked Ulsan Hyundai 2-0 at Gangneung Sports Complex on Wednesday. It had been 11 years since Gangwon had beaten Ulsan since May 2012. Since then, Gangwon has lost 25 games, drawn four and lost 21. Coach Yoon Jeong-hwan (pictured) tasted his first win since taking charge of Gangwon in June, and the team finally broke through.
With their confidence restored, Gangwon will look to climb out of the bottom half of the table at home against Suwon FC on Sept. 19. Gangwon is in 11th place with 20 points, while Suwon is in 10th place with 23 points. Both teams need this match to stay out of the relegation zone. Gangwon, in particular, is desperate for a win. Even though they are out of the bottom, they are still one point behind Suwon Samsung (19 points).
There is also a connection between Yoon and Suwon FC. On June 25, Yoon faced Suwon FC in his debut match as manager of Gangwon. Gangwon scored the first goal, but Suwon FC’s Lars Veltvik (registered name Lars) equalized to draw 1-1. After failing to secure a win, Yoon’s side will look to get back to winning ways against Suwon FC.카지노
The head-to-head this season is 1-1. However, Gangwon has the momentum. Prior to the game against Ulsan, Gangwon’s offense had been a problem, scoring just 16 goals in 25 matches. However, it is encouraging to see that new signing Yago Cariello (real name Yago) has started to integrate into the team, scoring his debut goal against Ulsan.
