“Gwangju FC coach Lee Jung-hyo is playing very good soccer. We have players who can answer them.”
FC Seoul acting head coach Kim Jin-gyu said. FC Seoul will host Gwangju FC in the 30th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Seoul World Cup Stadium on Sunday.
It’s a fierce battle for third place. Gwangju (45 points) and Seoul (43 points) are in third and fourth place with two points separating them. The standings could change depending on the outcome of tonight’s match. Seoul was unbeaten in three matches before the A-Match break. They won one and drew two, especially in their “supermatch” against Suwon Samsung. Gwangju is even more explosive. They have four wins and five draws in their last nine matches.
The two teams have produced issues every time they have met this season. “It’s frustrating to lose to a team that plays like that,” Lee said after the March 5 match. Lee added that he wasn’t disparaging former Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo and Seoul’s soccer, but it could have been taken as a “snipe” at the other team.
“There are definitely some good things we did against Gwangju. In our last home game, there were a lot of good things. I think the players are confident. Gwangju is above us now. Everyone thinks Gwangju’s soccer is fresh. I think it’s good for the K League as well. The K League should continue to play attacking soccer like that, so the spectators can see good things. I think the soccer that Gwangju plays is desirable.” Seoul has two wins against Gwangju this season. The first was a 3-1 win at home in May.
Seoul came out with a 3-4-3 defense. Kim Shin-jin and Na Sang-ho lead the attack. Kim Jin-ya, Goyohan, Palosevic, and Park Soo-il make up the back line. Kim Joo-sung, Ki Sung-yong, and Osmar are in the back three. Choi Chul-won will be in goal. 바카라사이트
Acting coach Kim said, “We need to have a lot of wins when we are performing well. It’s unfortunate that we can’t do that. Personally, I think it’s pressure. I don’t think the players are under any pressure. I saw them training, and they don’t seem to be under any pressure. Even today, they seem to be living freely. It seems to be different from the last time.”
“I think he’s going to play high-pressing up front, and I think we have to play high-pressing as well, so we can give the fans something to look forward to. We need to play a little more intense soccer. This coach is playing very good football. We have players who can answer him. We’ll try to create situations where we can high-press and keep attacking from the front.”
