‘1’ is all of the field goals Gangwon scored in the 2023 K-League 1. It’s been two months since the season started and there is no sign of the goal drought resolving. A goal must be scored in this game. And the team we met is Gwangju FC, which is showing ‘Dakgong’ this season.
Gwangju FC and Gangwon FC will face off in the 8th round of the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 23rd. Currently, Gwangju is 5th with 12 points and Gangwon is 11th with 3 points.
Literally, ‘Bungong’ and ‘Dakgong’ meet. Gangwon, which has recorded only 3 goals in the league this season, is overwhelmingly last in the league in terms of team goals. Considering that even Suwon, which is at the bottom of the league, is scoring 7 goals, Gangwon’s offensive power is empty. The only field goal in the league this season was Kim Jin-ho’s one goal against Suwon. Dino, a foreign mercenary, has not been able to show much performance with no goals, and Yang Hyun-joon and Kim Dae-won, who showed great performance last season, have also become dull.
Gwangju is showing off an offensive power that Gangwon would envy. He scored 12 goals in 7 matches, and the mercenary striker Asani is 2nd in the league with 4 goals. Gwangju surprised the K-League fans by scoring a whopping 5 goals in the match against Incheon, and won 4-3 in the previous game after exchanging 7 goals with Daegu.
Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo’s aggressive pressure football is showing good results. Coach Lee Jung-hyo, who was already recognized for his leadership in K-League 2 last season with his overwhelming performance, is maintaining his tactical color even after being promoted this season. His aggressive advances from the side and organic pressure from the front are shaking the opposing team’s defense. 스포츠토토
On the other hand, Gangwon coach Choi Yong-soo’s this season seems to be a little shaky so far. The 3-4-3 tactic, which is similar every time, continues to be attacked by the opposing team, and there is a steady stream of criticism that it is uninteresting soccer without scoring well. Coach Choi Yong-soo, who has not won in seven games, seems desperately in need of a turning point.
There is no chance. This game can definitely be an opportunity for Gangwon to rebound. Although Gwangju has clearly performed well so far, it cannot be overlooked that most of the goals have been scored in two or three games. Gwangju scored 9 goals in matches against Daegu and Incheon, and scored only 3 goals in the remaining 5 matches. Also, there were 3 games without a goal. In the end, it is important for Gangwon to focus on not collapsing in defense. If Gangwon shows a more solid appearance in defense, they can seize a chance to win with their poor offense.
Can Gangwon, the lowest offensive player in the league, be able to laugh at the confrontation with Gwangju by scoring the league’s second field goal? It is noteworthy what the result of the confrontation between the blunt spear and the sharp spear will be.
