Half success’ was achieved. However, the risk of injury and lack of support are still challenges for Suwon Samsung.

Suwon, led by coach Kim Byung-soo, drew 1-1 despite the numerical superiority that came early in the second half in the home game against Pohang Steelers in the 22nd round of ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 12th. Suwon, who secured 12 points, had to be content with narrowing the gap with Gangwon FC (15 points) in 11th place.

Suwon started the game after a two-day break on this day. Nevertheless, they came out with the concept of ‘front pressure’. Midfielders such as Jeon Jin-woo, Kim Bo-kyung, and Ko Seung-beom and Kazuki, who were deployed at the forefront, tried to press from a high position. Through this, Pohang’s advance and space movement were prevented as much as possible. Suwon had many opportunities to record 7 shots and 4 effective shots in the first half alone.

It wasn’t bad until the beginning of the second half. In the 11th minute of the second half, Jeon Jin-woo, who received Kazuki’s pass, induced Ha Chang-rae’s foul and led to the exit. Mulich took the free kick and took the lead. But it was just there. Suwon couldn’t do much attack work after the middle of the second half. Pass misses continued to come out in the midfield, and rather, Pohang, with one less player, overwhelmed them. Suwon finally missed the victory by allowing a penalty kick in the 34th minute of the second half. Suwon went on a 9-match winless streak (4 draws and 5 losses).

Moreover, Suwon’s starters Acosti and Lee Sang-min complained of hamstring pain and were replaced. It’s not a big injury, but it seems that it will be difficult to participate in the 23rd round of Ulsan Hyundai, which will follow immediately. In particular, Akosti has not been able to play for a long time due to continuous injuries this season.

After the game, coach Kim also said, “Acosti and Lee Sang-min had hamstring problems, so they were unavoidably replaced at halftime. This is where the plan started to go awry. Still, we played well as intended until the 70th minute. After that, the physical part occurred,” he pointed out. In Suwon, the best member cannot continue to be together due to a series of injuries.오래된 토토사이트

In addition, Suwon’s lack of stamina and backbone are still chronic weaknesses. He leads the game well, but he often draws games that would have been won by conceding late in the second half, and often loses games that should have been drawn. Kazuki’s joining has definitely improved Suwon’s progress. However, in order to maintain the forward pressure concept, stamina, determination, and concentration must be supported. “The K-League cannot talk about mental strength. Director Kim said, “We need to be more armed.”

Suwon will play a home game against Ulsan on the 15th. Ulsan has no choice but to focus on their all-out efforts as they were hit by Incheon United in the 22nd round. Suwon lost both matches against Ulsan this season. Both matches were won by one goal.
