Suwon Samsung has created a chance to climb out of 12th place on its own.
Suwon won the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 Round 37 Super Match against FC Seoul 1-0 at 4:30 p.m. on Friday at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.레모나토토 도메인
With a loss, Suwon would have been directly relegated to 12th place. If Suwon lost to Seoul and Gangwon won against Suwon FC, they would lose on goal difference, making it difficult to escape the bottom even if they won the final game.
Furthermore, Suwon was absolutely outclassed in the supermatch against Seoul this season, losing three out of three. It was going to be a tougher match than ever.
However, armed with desperation, Suwon did not crumble. From the very beginning of the match, Suwon actively competed with the Seoul players. She showed her fighting spirit to not be outplayed.
The tactical concept was also clear. Suwon closed the gap to seal off the midfield, which is Seoul’s strong point, and did not leave any gaps. At the same time, when they did get the ball, they quickly launched counterattacks to exploit the space behind the Seoul defense.
The payoff came in the 18th minute of the second half. Bassani stripped the Seoul defense with a solo dribble before taking a bold left-footed shot that rattled the net.
After taking the lead, Suwon had to withstand Seoul’s offense. However, Suwon’s defense did not falter. Suwon remained focused and eventually held on to the one-goal lead to secure a valuable victory.
With two consecutive wins in the Suwon Derby and Super Match against Suwon FC, Suwon finally has a chance to climb out of 12th place on their own. A win in the final match against Gangwon on Sunday will help Suwon climb out of last place.
After the match, acting head coach Yeom Ki-hoon said, “I’m very happy to get a result in such an important match. I could see the fight of the players and the support of the fans. I think we need to take care of the players so that this atmosphere can continue until the game against Gangwon. We will win against Gangwon with our own strength.”
