Suwon FC succeeded in remaining in the K-League 1 for the fourth consecutive season by winning the second round of PO for promotion of the Hana One Q K-League 2023 at Suwon Stadium in Gyeonggi Province at 2 p.m. on the 9th, winning 6-4 overall in the first and second games after an extended battle. On the contrary, Busan missed promotion by losing the second round despite winning 2-1 in the first round.
Gangwon FC, ranked 10th in the K-League, will hold a promotion PO with Gimpo FC, the winner of the PO, and Suwon FC, ranked 11th in the K-League, will hold a promotion PO with Busan I’Park, ranked 2nd in the K-League 2, to determine the owners of the last two spots in the K-League 1 next season. The promotion PO, which is played in two home-and-away games, will be played in the first round at the K-League 2 team’s home stadium and the second round at the K-League 1 team’s home stadium. The rule of multiple goals, which favors away goals, does not apply and the team with a combined score advantage in the first and second rounds will advance to the K-League 1 next season.
The first round of the promotion PO between Busan and Suwon FC at Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 6th ended with Busan’s 2-1 come-from-behind victory. Suwon FC led with Jang Jae-woong’s first goal in the 42nd minute of the first half, but Busan won the first round with Ramas’ multi-goal penalty kick in the 39th minute of the second half and the 8th minute of the extra time of the second half. And on that day, they moved to Suwon Stadium, Suwon FC’s home, and played the second game.
With the two teams continuing to play tight matches in the first half, Busan scored a goal and ran away. At a counterattack on Busan in the 15th minute of the first half, frontline striker Kim Chan dribbled right behind the halfway line and drove the ball to Suwon FC’s penalty arc. Wingback Choi Jun took the pass that Kim Chan gave to the right and put a low and powerful right foot shot into the bottom left corner of Suwon FC’s goal. Busan led the game 3-1 overall.
At this rate, Suwon FC, which has been demoted, fired a powerful right-footed shot after Oh In-pyo dribbled to the right inside the Busan box in the 18th minute of the first half, but failed to catch up as Busan goalkeeper Ku Sang-min blocked it. Finally, the team headed to the final second half, trailing Busan by two goals in the combined score. 온라인카지노사이트
Suwon FC manager Kim Do-kyun excluded Park Chul-woo and Kim Do-yoon from the starting lineup of the second half and deployed Lopez and Lee Kwang-hyuk. However, the goalpost did not help Suwon FC. Lopez in the first minute of the second half and Yoon Bit-garam in the fifth minute of the second half all hit the goalposts. In the 15th minute of the second half, a cross from the right hit Lopez Murray and Yoon Bit-garam and went into the goal, but Suwon FC’s goal was canceled as Yoon Bit-garam was declared offside.
Suwon FC showed strong commitment to stay. Kim Hyun-hee’s shot that hit the crossbar with his right foot after receiving Kim Joo-yeop’s left cutback pass in the 33rd minute of the second half went into the goal, trailing the team with a combined score of 2-3. Later, Suwon FC midfielder Lee Young-jae, who entered the Busan box at the 40th minute of the second half, exquisitely hit a low left foot shot into the bottom corner of the Busan right goal, tying the game at 3-3. Eventually, the two teams could not decide the match and headed to overtime.
It was Suwon FC that laughed in the extra time. Lee Kwang-hyuk scored a goal with his left foot in the Busan box in the 5th minute of extra time, and Jung Jae-yong scored with his right foot in the 11th minute of extra time when he counterattacked, widening the gap to 5-3. Busan Kim Jung-hwan scored a heading chase goal in the 10th minute of extra time, but Suwon FC, which also scored Lopez’s goal in the 12th minute of extra time, defended its lead to the end with 6-4 and succeeded in staying in the K League 1.
Yoon Bit-garam, who participated in an interview at the mixed zone after confirming his stay, said, “It was such an interesting game that I wondered if such a drama could exist. It was a nerve-racking game, but I’m glad the finish went well. All the players made strong efforts to the end, so I was able to win.”
When asked about the turning point of the game, Yoon Bit-garam said, “Lee Young-jae’s goal was an important goal leading to extra time. In addition, goals by Lee Kwang-hyuk and Jung Jae-yong in extra time played a role in reducing the motivation of Busan players.”
When manager Kim Do-kyun shed tears after confirming his stay, he said, “I thought, ‘How hard must it have been?’ He must have been in a lot of pain, not just someone who expresses his feelings on the surface. Looking at him, the players also thought that they should prepare better next year,” adding, “It was a harder year than during my managerial career (laughs). It was the hardest year in my more than 10 years of professional career. This will also be a good experience.”
