FC Seoul has changed. On the 8th, in the 6th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Daegu FC held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, they won 3-0 and recorded 4 wins (2 losses) in 6 games after the opening. This contrasts with having to wait until round 12 to get 4 wins last year.
After defeating Daegu in the opening game of the 2022 season, Seoul struggled in a swamp without a win in 7 consecutive games (4 draws and 3 losses). After failing to hunt for victory points in the beginning, we had to struggle to stay until the end of the season. It’s different this season. After winning consecutive victories in Incheon and Gwangju, he suffered his first loss of the season in the third round against Ulsan. Seoul, who narrowly won the match against Jeju in the 4th round, lost again in the match against Daejeon Hana in the 5th round. 2 losses in 3 games, it could have been on a downward trend, but it passed the hurdle with a complete victory against Daegu.메이저사이트
The difference from last season is the ‘sharp spear’. Seoul has scored 12 goals (2 goals per game) in 6 games this season. It is one goal short of leader Ulsan (13 goals). There is no scoreless game, and multi-goals were scored in all 5 games except for the Ulsan match. In the match against Daegu, Seoul took the lead with Hwang Eui-jo’s penalty goal in the 11th minute of the first half, and Na Sang-ho in the 33rd minute and Palosevich in the 41st minute scored consecutive goals to widen the score by 3 goals in the first half alone. It is the first time in about 5 years and 6 months since the match against Ulsan in October 2017 that Seoul recorded ‘3 goals in the first half’.
The power to crush the opponent is resulting in victory points. In the matches against Incheon, Gwangju and Daegu, Seoul quickly scored the first goal and then added an additional goal, breaking away from the opponent’s pursuit. Although they lost in Daejeon, they scored two goals in the 21st minute in the first half. In the match against Jeju, Palosevic scored a goal in the second half of extra time to win the match. The firmness to keep the lead, the tenacity to pursue the score, and the temperament of a match-maker who overturns the game are displayed evenly.
It is also encouraging that the score is not biased toward one player. From the first goal of the season in clinical consultation to Palosevich, who scored a key goal with a free kick in the match against Daegu, 8 people tasted the goal until the 6th round. Osmar Kim, Ui-jo Hwang, Dong-jin Park, and Ilyuchenko shook the net. Not only the striker who was tasked with scoring, but also the defense and midfielder added to the score. It has transformed into a team that does not know when and where it will explode.
Reducing the number of points here is the icing on the cake. Seoul has conceded 7 goals in 6 games this season, an average of more than 1 goal per game. He scored 6 goals in the last 3 matches before losing a goal against Daegu. The 7 runs are the same as the runs Seoul gave in the first 6 games last season. Seoul knows empirically that the ability to not break is just as important as the ability to break the opponent’s defense.
