Jeju United aims for 3 points against Suwon FC beyond the typhoon variable.
Jeju will clash with Suwon FC in the 토토사이트 Hana One Q K League 1 2023 round 26 home game held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on August 12 (Sat) at 8:00 pm. Currently, Jeju is 9th in the league with 8 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses with 31 points. Recently, as they fell into a swamp of 10 consecutive games without a win (4 draws, 6 losses), they were gradually pushed out of the ranking competition. But there are still opportunities. The gap between the top tier is not huge. If you widen the gap with 10th place Suwon FC (23 points) and accumulate points one by one, you can expect a higher ranking.
Ahead of such an important confrontation, an unexpected variable arose. On August 9th (Wednesday), the FA Cup semi-final against Pohang Steelers was scheduled to be played in the home room, but it was canceled due to the influence of Typhoon Kanun No. 6. It was a situation that could cause confusion due to the sudden postponement, but the Jeju team was not shaken. We moved from the stadium to the clubhouse and practiced alternative training. It is to improve the goal-making ability, which is a task that Jeju must solve.
Jeju has attempted 293 shots (6th in the league) in 25 league games this season. Among them, he converted 118 shots into effective shots (2nd in the league). Shootings made inside the penalty box are also second in the league (186). Chance-making is undoubtedly. But finishing is a problem. The score is 5th in the league with a total of 33 goals, but only 10 goals were scored while the last 10 games were winless. The league’s most offside offenses (50) are also holding back Jeju, which has a high frequency of penetrating passes in the attacking area.
As a result, Jeju focused on training on goal-making power in the substitute training that day. In addition to focusing on his goal-making ability, he is also trying to diversify his attack routes through active switching plays and organic passing stems. He is also bringing flexible tactical changes. In the last 25th round against Gangwon, we started the 4-4-2 formation, and in the FA Cup semi-final against Pohang, we prepared a 4-5-1 tactic and devised a strategy to attack the opponent’s defense during the last break.
Suwon FC has allowed the most goals (51 goals) in the league this season. In the recent match against Suwon FC on Sunday, May 14th, Jeju also won 5-0, causing anxiety in the opponent’s defense. In particular, Seo Jin-soo played a big role with 2 goals and 1 help, leading Jeju to 5 consecutive victories. In this game, you have to boldly knock on the opponent’s goal. On the other hand, Suwon FC’s flagship striker Lars (9 goals, 5 assists) recently withdrew from the team, and the burden increased.
Coach Nam Ki-il said, “The FA Cup semi-final was canceled due to the typhoon, but we are not shaken and are concentrating on the next game. We are creating a lot of chances, but not being able to finish with goals is the biggest homework. However, there is no decision victory in soccer. In the end, it is a sport where a goal is a period in order to win. I hope that Suwon FC will be the stage where these troubles of Jeju are resolved.”
