Which side will escape the draw?
FC Seoul and Daegu FC will face off in the 27th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 19 at Seoul World Cup Stadium. Seoul (38 points) is in 5th place and Daegu (4 points) is in 9th place.
These are two teams in desperate need of a turnaround. The home team, Seoul, rose to the top of the standings after a noticeably improved start to the season, with Na Sang-ho’s four-game goal streak in the month of April setting the K League stage ablaze. However, the recent trend is not good. After their historic 7-2 win over Suwon FC, they went on a “four-game winless streak” against Gangwon FC (1-1 draw), Incheon United (0-1 loss), Pohang Steelers (2-2 draw), and Daejeon Hana Citizen (3-4 loss).
The scoring is good. ‘Top scorer’ Na Sang-ho (11 goals) and Willian (6 goals), who is currently on a ‘five-game goal streak’, are in great form. Kim Shin-jin is filling the void left by Hwang Eui-jo, and Palosevic (4+ goals) can score at any time from the second line. The problem is the defense. The back line of Kim Joo-sung and Lee Han-beom in the center and Kim Jin-ya, Lee Tae-seok, and Park Soo-il on the flanks will be crucial. The back line of Kim Joo-sung in the center and Han Beom Han on the flanks, as well as Lee Tae-yah, Lee Tae-jin, and Park Soo-il, will be crucial to the victory. 온라인바카라
The away team Daegu is also in a bad situation. It’s been a roller coaster ride for the team. They went winless in the first round robin and rebounded somewhat in the second round robin. However, in July and the third round robin, they are falling again. They recently lost to Gangwon (0-0 draw), Gwangju FC (1-1 draw), Daejeon (0-1 loss), Ulsan Hyundai (0-0 draw), and Incheon (1-3 loss), making it ‘5 games without a win’. If they rebound now, they can leapfrog into the mid-table, but if they don’t, they could slip to the bottom.
Defense is their strength. In their last 10 games, they have only conceded nine goals. If you exclude the last game against Incheon, it was 6 goals in 9 games. The back three of Cho Jin-woo, Hong Jeong-woon, and Kim Jin-hyuk, as well as goalkeeper Oh Seung-hoon, will need to step up. On the other hand, they need to be sharp on the spear. Expectations will be focused on ‘King of Daegu’ Sejingya (7 goals), who hasn’t scored in a long time. In addition, Go Jae-hyun (5 goals) and Hwang Jae-won (3 assists) will be responsible for flanking Edgar (5 goals) and Vasellus (3 goals), who have been silent for a long time.
The head-to-head record favors Seoul with 20 wins, 15 draws and 15 losses from 50 matches. Recent form favors Daegu with four wins, three draws and three losses in the last 10 games. The head-to-head this season is split 1-1. A very tight game with different strengths. Each team will line up with different levels of confidence.
