Gangwon FC, which is in crisis, challenges the first win of the season against promoted team Gwangju FC.
Gangwon, led by coach Choi Yong-soo, will play against Gwangju FC in the 8th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 23rd. Gangwon, which has not yet reported its first victory with 3 draws and 4 losses since the opening, is in 11th place in the league, and is aiming for a rebound in this game.
Gwangju, which we will face this time, is a sensational team that ranks 5th in the league with 4 wins and 3 losses and 12 points, despite being promoted. As a team that won the K-League 2 overwhelmingly last year to record the highest number of points (86 points) in the K-League 2 with attack soccer at the forefront, they are recording good results in the K-League 1 as well.
In particular, it is receiving a lot of attention tactically. The key to Gwangju’s strategy is to adjust the player’s position to match the opponent’s formation and secure a numerical advantage. Based on this, they are creating many scoring opportunities by coping with the opponent’s pressure and aiming for empty spaces. Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo has so much confidence in Gwangju’s own soccer that he always raised his voice saying, “Whoever the opponent is, we will play our soccer.” Perhaps thanks to this, Gwangju is ranked 3rd in the number of shots (87) and 4th in the most goals (12 goals). In contrast to Gangwon, both the number of shots (61) and the number of goals (3 goals) are at the bottom of the league.스포츠토토
It is a game that Gangwon must win despite facing a formidable team. If you play until the Gwangju match, you will have digested 20% of the entire league schedule, so the first win is more desperate than ever. So far, the difference between the mid-ranking and the points is about 4-5 points, so it is possible to catch up, but if it goes any further, it will be very difficult to get out of the lower ranks.
As for Gangwon, it is necessary to try shooting more boldly. Since the number of shooting attempts itself is small, Gangwon’s expected score is also the lowest at 5.19. Rather than creating perfect chances, there should be more cases of boldly aiming for the opponent’s goal.
Above all, we must play a game for the fans who are supporting us despite the current slump. Fans of other teams having poor seasons, such as Suwon Samsung and Jeonbuk Hyundai, are showing a strong attitude by blocking the team’s bus, but Gangwon supporters ‘Narsha’ expressed their will to support them until the end. It is Gangwon that must be determined to win for the sake of the fans who continue to support it.
