Suwon Samseong and FC Seoul will play the 101st ‘Super Match’ in their history.
Suwon and Seoul will face off in the 19th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on April 24. Suwon currently sits in 12th place with 9 points (2 wins, 3 draws, 13 losses), while Seoul is in third place with 29 points (8 wins, 5 draws, 5 losses)바카라사이트.
The teams’ performances this season have been polar opposites. Suwon hired new head coach Kim Byung-soo last month in an attempt to rebound, but they still haven’t made it out of the bottom of the table. While some would argue that their form is improving, they have just one win, one draw, and five losses in seven games, most notably a 1-2 loss at home to local rival and struggling Suwon FC.
Seoul, on the other hand, has gotten off to a strong start and is in contention for second place. Of course, the gap to eighth-place Gwangju (25 points) is tight, but a win here could see them leapfrog Pohang (31 points) into second place. This is in contrast to Suwon, who are aiming to get out of last place.
Of course, this is a traditional rivalry derby, so don’t make any hasty predictions. Another factor could be how different Suwon is under the guidance of Kim Byung-soo after a two-week break. Seoul is also winless in its last three matches (two draws and one loss), so the mood is not quite right.
Ahead of the match, the starting lineups for both teams have been released. Suwon will start in a 3-5-2 formation. Ahn Byung-joon will be followed by Kim Bo-kyung, Acosti, Son Ho-joon, Yoo Je-ho, Ko Seung-beom, Lee Ki-je, Ko Myung-seok, Kim Joo-won, Park Dae-won, and Yang Hyung-mo. One name that stands out is veteran defender Kim Joo-won, who just joined the team.
Seoul’s counterparts have also brought out a 3-5-2 formation. Hwang Ui-jo will start, along with Na Sang-ho, Palosevic, Ki Sung-yong, Sang-hyeop Kim, Osmar, Park Soo-il, Lee Han-beom, Kim Joo-sung, Lee Tae-seok, and Baek Jong-beom.
The game will also be Hwang’s farewell match in the K League. He is returning to Premier League side Nottingham Forest after finalizing a short-term loan deal with Seoul. Hwang has fond memories of scoring his first field goal since returning to the K League against Suwon in April, so he’s determined to give Seoul one last gift.
