In each round-robin, Daejeon Hana Citizen’s goal was 5 wins. In the midst of achieving this, we look beyond that against Jeju United.
Daejeon will play the 10th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ with Jeju at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 30th. Currently, Daejeon is in 3rd place (17 points) with 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in 9 matches, and Jeju is in 7th place (11 points) with 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in 9 matches.
Daejeon is a promoted team ahead of this season. After being relegated in 2015, after waiting for 8 years, they stepped on the K League 1 stage. Coach Lee Min-seong took the stance of a challenger before the season began and set the first goal to remain. At the same time, at the opening media day, he said, “The goal I talked to the players this season is 15 wins. If you win 5 every round-robin, you will win 15.”
The round-robin is where the 12 K-League 1 teams face off against all the teams and go around one lap. Currently, Daejeon has played 9 matches. Now, there are only two games left until the end of the first round – Robin, Jeju and Gwangju FC. Daejeon has already recorded 5 wins in round 1-Robin. Even if we win just one game against Jeju and Gwangju, we will still exceed our goal.
It shows more than just winning 5 wins. The opponents that Daejeon won 5 out of 9 games were the ‘defending champion’ Ulsan Hyundai (2-1 win), Jeonbuk Hyundai (2-1 win), and FC Seoul (3-2 win), which were classified as K-League strong players or traditional masters. , Suwon Samsung (3-1 win). And in the opening match, they overcame Gangwon FC (2-0 win). He showed his potential against formidable teams.
There are two reasons for the uptrend. The first is home strength. Daejeon showed a good appearance in the living room. In their 4 home matches this season, they recorded 3 wins and 1 draw. Since July 2021, they have achieved overwhelming results with 23 wins, 10 draws and 1 loss in 34 home matches.
Then there’s the massive firepower. Daejeon is currently scoring 18 points in 9 games. As of the end of the 9th round, it was the 1st place with Seoul and the most points (21 points in 10 games in Seoul). While freshman Thiago is doing his part with 4 goals and 2 assists, Lee Jin-hyun, who has been reborn as the best central midfielder in K-League 1, is energizing with 3 goals and 4 assists. 먹튀검증
Now, against Jeju, who will face off in three years, we challenge for the 6th victory in the first round-Robin. Jeju won the 2020 championship when it met Daejeon at the time and was promoted. And for the past two years, all of them have advanced to the final round A and showed a formidable appearance. Although he stagnated at the beginning of this season, he is on the rise with three wins in April. You can’t be careless.
