Seoul and Suwon, who are in a hurry to go, a super match held on a single bridge

Maybe it will be the last time, or maybe it will be a one-time confrontation. FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung will play their 3rd ‘Super Match’ this season this weekend. If you lose, you have to prepare for a drop in the rankings, a brinkmanship game. Seoul and Suwon have different resolutions for this confrontation.

Seoul and Suwon will play the 29th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on September 2nd. This is the 3rd Super Match of the season and the 102nd Super Match, and Seoul is ahead with 41 wins, 25 draws and 35 losses. Seoul won both super matches this season. In the first match on April 22, Seoul won 3-1, and in the second match on June 22, Seoul won 1-0.

The situation the two teams are in is desperate in a different sense.

Suwon is 11th in the relegation zone with 22 points. Since the start of the season, it has been difficult to get out of the relegation zone. In particular, it is only 1 point away from Gangwon FC (21 points), the lowest place that is directly relegated. If Gangwon loses in this super match and Gangwon wins, Suwon could fall to the bottom.

Suwon seemed to be on track with 3 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss in 8 matches, from Daegu FC on July 1 (1-1 draw) to Jeju United on August 18 (1-0 win). However, on the 27th, against Gwangju FC, they lost 0-4, and the good atmosphere subsided again. The key is how to bring back the atmosphere that has fallen ahead of the Seoul game.스포츠토토

Seoul is also in desperate need of a victory as it has been without a win in the last 6 games (4 draws and 2 losses). At one time, it was in a position to compete with the leader Ulsan Hyundai, but after that, the rankings began to fall as it showed severe ups and downs in performance. They are now in 5th place with 40 points. After the match against Daegu (2-2 draw) on the 19th, coach Ahn Ik-soo announced his ‘quick resignation’ and fell into confusion.

Fortunately, acting coach Kim Jin-kyu, who took over the baton after Ahn, managed to draw 2-2 in the 28th round match against Ulsan, which was his first coach. Although they did not secure victory, there were significant changes in their own way, such as using Ilyuchenko, who had been sluggish, for a long time, and he scored a goal.

If Seoul loses the Super Match, the leaderboard could fluctuate once again. If 6th place Incheon (40 points) and 7th place Daegu (38 points) win, they can fall to 7th place. Daejeon Hana Citizen (37 points) in 8th place and Jeju (34 points) in 9th place are also not far behind Seoul, so in the worst case, they could fall to the bottom. And this also means that Seoul and Suwon can once again play a super match in Final B.

Chungnam Asan fans gathered outside the stadium amidst consecutive losses… ‘Congratulatory Party’, not ‘Bomak’ → “I will believe and wait”

The Chungnam Asan supporters are ready to wait despite the sluggish performance. Rather, they held an event for director Park Dong-hyuk and raised their voices of congratulations and support.

Chungnam Asan lost 0-1 to Gyeongnam FC in the 29th round of ‘Hana One Q K League 2 2023’ held at Yi Sun-shin Sports Complex at 7:00 pm on the 29th. As Chungnam-Asan suffered two consecutive losses, the atmosphere became even more down.

Lee Chan-wook conceded a goal in the 18th minute and was dragged away. Chungnam-Asan gave strength to the attack, but inaccurate linkages continued and the decision power fell significantly. I chose a change to put Kim Hye-seong in the front line in the second half, but there was no big effect. In the end, Chungnam Asan lost 0-1 and left the ground with their heads down. Coach Park Dong-hyuk’s expression was dark as he tried to make up for the 0-4 loss against Sangmu in Gimcheon, but failed to win amid disappointing performances.

After recruiting Lee Jae-seong, Chungnam-Asan showed a good trend by going undefeated in 3 matches as the defensive power revived, and then faced a 2-game losing streak. In order to go to the playoffs, it is necessary to continue the undefeated flow in the third round robin, but it was defeated by two consecutive losses. What is more painful than a losing streak is not scoring. It’s not easy to finish the attack, so it’s frustrating. Director Park Dong-hyuk is troubled in many ways.

At the post-game press conference, coach Park Dong-hyuk said, “The players’ attitude to try something even in the midst of hardship came from the playground. This result came about because I was lacking. will come. Outsiders look intimidated, but you have to overcome yourself. All team members need to find themselves. It’s important to devote yourself to the players and make them do well. It’s because of me. I’m upset and angry. I have to come to my senses first,” he said, blaming himself first rather than blaming the player.안전놀이터

Also, “I continued training to score goals, but I am upset that I did not score goals. It is also necessary to score goals with my own ability. I am not in the desired rank, but my confidence is low. The result is my responsibility. The players have to show on the field. I will try to help the players do better,” he said, emphasizing that he is responsible for the results. It was the words of director Park Dong-hyuk’s will.

Everything was finished until the press conference and the ground lights were turned off. Outside the stadium, Chungnam Asan supporters, Armada, were gathered. Rather than expressing dissatisfaction with the disappointing grades and contents, we gathered to congratulate them. Head coach Park Dong-hyuk celebrated his 200th coaching match against Gimcheon last year. The match against Gyeongnam was his 201st match. As a manager, he played all 201 matches in Chungnam-Asan. Since the match against Gimcheon was away, Armada held a celebration party at home.

Armada gave a gift of a necktie that he had saved up money for at 10 o’clock. Director Park Dong-hyuk expressed his apologies to the fans, but Armada rather cheered, saying, “We believe in you! We will believe in you and wait.” Director Park Dong-hyeok, who received the gift, expressed his gratitude, took a group photo together, and left in a friendly atmosphere.

Who is the ‘bear-born’ tiger who greets Park Kun-woo with a ‘close discipline’ folder?

A clear sky came to Gwangju-Kia Champions Field, where the game was not held for two days in a row during the rainy season in late summer.

The KIA players came out early and prepared for the game, and had a meeting with the NC players who arrived later.

Na Seong-beom, from NC, welcomed and encouraged his younger brother Park Min-woo and his juniors. Park Kun-woo called Lee Woo-seong, who ate rice in a pot during his Doosan days, and gave him various advice and took care of it.먹튀검증

Lee Woo-seong also greeted Park Gun-woo with a folder and treated him politely.

In the game on the 30th, NC pitched Shin Min-hyeok and KIA as Panoni the day before, but as the game was canceled, an ace match between NC Pedi and KIA Panoni took place that day.

The ride between the two teams, which are in the midst of a ranking competition, is not great. 4th place NC is recording 55 wins, 2 draws and 49 losses with 3 consecutive wins, and KIA, which swept Hanwha in the series last weekend and ran 4 consecutive wins, is recording 52 wins, 2 draws and 50 losses. The difference between the two teams is two games.

The images of the players of both teams, who had to play the match three days after meeting because of the rain, were captured. Gwangju 

It was different from the cotyledon… Hong Yun-sang, who emerged as Pohang’s ‘new engine’

Head coach Kim Ki-dong (52) of the Pohang Steelers, a professional football team celebrating the 50th anniversary of its founding, had quite a few worries going into the second half of the year. It was because of concerns that Pohang would have a hard time overcoming the hot summer season due to limitations in power, even though Pohang is racing ahead with good results (2nd place) that surpasses expectations before the opening. When rivals add strength in the summer transfer market, Pohang, which lacks a budget, has to wait for the return of injured players. Pohang last year’s total annual salary (7.7 billion won) was only 10th out of 12 clubs.

However, Pohang defended its 2nd place until the scorching heat subsided little by little.

Hong Yun-sang (21, pictured) cannot be left out as the main character who blew away director Kim’s worries. A native of Pohang Youth, he advanced to Germany in 2021 and recently rejoined Pohang. Hong Yun-sang left a strong impression on fans even before his debut. On the 20th, he came on as a substitute in the 35th minute of the second half in a home game against Daejeon Hana Citizen and scored the winning goal to turn a 3-3 tie into a 4-3 victory. On the 26th, in the Gangwon FC expedition, he started and was responsible for the goal that ended the match, which had been drawn 0-1, with a 1-1 tie.메이저사이트

Coach Kim said, “He is a young player, but his level of play is extraordinary.”

In fact, Hong Yun-sang was one of the top prospects among his peers during his school days. The reason he transferred completely as soon as he went on loan to Wolfsburg, Germany two years ago is because he was recognized for his extraordinary potential. Last season in Nuremberg, he was extraordinary enough to record 7 goals and 9 assists while playing 26 games as a loan player. Hong Yun-sang said, “I could have stayed in Europe, but there were various problems, so I decided to go to Pohang with the idea of ​​playing soccer in a comfortable place.” “There is no difference between Europe and the K-League. I run with a grateful heart every day,” he said.

Hong Yun-sang, who has become a new engine for Pohang, also regained the Taegeuk mark. On the 28th, he was named to the Olympic soccer team composed of under-22 (U-22) players. The national team will play the 2024 Paris Olympics Asian qualifiers and the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers held in Changwon from September 6 to 12. Hwang Seon-hong, coach of the Olympic team, is also known to have paid attention to Hong Yun-sang’s performance.

Kim Yun-sik, Lee Min-ho and Kang Hyo-jong in the vacancy of Plutco… Yeom Kyung-yeop “Doubleheader selection is Son Joo-young”

LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop selected Yun-shik Kim as a replacement for Adam Plutko, who was out due to injury. Subsequently, sms Lee Min-ho and Kang Hyo-jong were pointed out as replacements.

Coach Yeom said, “Kim Yoon-sik has been working hard throughout the season to fill the gap where the starter was missing,” ahead of the Doosan Bears match scheduled to be held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 30th. If Kim Yun-sik plays the role, he can play comfortably, and if he can’t, he has to put the bullpen early like at the beginning of the season.”

Plutko started on the 26th against the NC Dinos and was replaced after pitching 4 innings. As a result of the examination, he was diagnosed with a left pelvic bruise.

LG paid special attention to Plutco’s body care in the second half. Before the SSG Landers game on the 20th, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “I tried to give Plutko a break, but he got Corona 19 and took a break.” said.

This is to avoid repeating the nightmare of last season. Since the beginning of the season, Plutko, who faithfully performed the role of the first starter with an overwhelming figure of 15 wins, 5 losses and 2.39 in 28 matches, was replaced after dealing with only one batter in the match against SSG on September 25 of last year due to symptoms of dampness. couldn’t get out먹튀검증

Immediately after, on October 25 of last year, he played in the second game of the playoffs against Kiwoom Heroes, but collapsed with 8 hits, 6 runs and 4 earned runs in 1 and 2/3 innings. Starting from this day, LG suffered three consecutive losses and failed to advance to the Korean Series.

A sense of crisis looms over LG, which maintained its No. 1 position as a foreign ace was left out. Choi Won-tae, who transferred from Kiwoom, was sluggish with an average ERA of 9.00 with 1 win and 2 losses in 4 games this month. On the 25th, against NC, it collapsed with 11 runs (9 earned) in 4 innings. Lim Chan-gyu won 4 wins in August, but his ERA was high at 4.79, and in the game on the 27th, he hit the opponent’s batter’s head and was ejected without catching any outcounts

. Yunsik Kim replaces Plutko. If Kim Yun-sik performs sluggishly, Lee Min-ho and Kang Hyo-jong will participate one after another. Manager Yeom said, “In August, the batting is not active, so we have to take the upper hand in the selection fight.” In the second game of the double header on the 9th of next month, Son Joo-young will be put in.”

Mancini, the head coach of the Saudi national team, also aims to win the Asian Cup.

Italian coach Roberto Mancini, who took the helm of the Saudi Arabian men’s soccer team, set a short-term goal of winning the Qatar Asian Cup in January next year.

Coach Mancini arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the 29th and signed a contract with the Saudi Arabian Football Association. His contract is for 4 years until 2027. His annual salary has not been disclosed, but foreign media are predicting that it will reach up to 30 million euros (about 42.9 billion won).

Coach Mancini said in his inauguration day, “His first goal is to bring Saudi Arabia to the top of the Asian Cup after 27 years.” “Of course, there are strong teams in Asia, such as Korea, Japan and Australia, but I will try to win the Asian Cup,” he predicted fierce competition.토토사이트

The Korean national team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will face Saudi Arabia led by Mancini in Newcastle, England on the 13th of next month. Coach Klinsman also suggested winning the Asian Cup as a short-term goal, and a fierce match is expected as coach Mancini directly mentioned Korea.

Coach Mancini is a world-class manager who has achieved good results in both the European league and the national team. He took charge of his hometown club Inter Milan from the 2005-2006 season and led Serie A championships for three consecutive seasons, and won the league championship in the 2011-2012 season as Manchester City (England) coach. In 2020, he also led the 2020 European Football Championship (Euro) victory as coach of the Italian national team.

After stepping down as coach of the Italian national team on the 13th, he was appointed as the Saudi command tower in about two weeks, and he will be active on the Asian stage for the first time.

U18 baseball team, including Hwang Jun-seo and Jo Dae-hyeon, departs on the 30th to participate in the world tournament

The Korea Baseball Softball Association announced that the Korean U-18 baseball team will depart to participate in the 31st World Youth Baseball Championship.

According to the association on the 29th, the tournament, which opens on the 31st, will be held in Taipei and Taichung, Taiwan for 11 days.

The national team leaves for the decisive battle through Incheon International Airport on the morning of the 30th.토토사이트

A total of 12 countries participated in this tournament, and Korea was placed in Group A along with Taiwan, Australia, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Czech Republic.

The top 3 teams in each group advance to the Super Round, and the final ranking is determined by adding the results of the Preliminary Round and Super Round.

The Korean national team, which has won the tournament five times in the past (1981, 1994, 2000, 2006, and 2008), is aiming to recapture the throne after 15 years.

The Korean national team was led by head coach Lee Young-bok (Chungam High School), whose leadership skills were proven in high school.

There are many excellent players such as Cho Dae-hyeon (Gangneung High School) and Jeon Mir (Gyeongbuk High School), who have been active in high school as a pitching player, as well as Hwang Jun-seo, Yuk Seon-yeop (Jangchung High School), and Kim Taek-yeon (Incheon High School).

Concerns about Clint’s choice… ‘Condition 100%’ No striker

Cho Kyu-seong, Oh Hyun-kyu, and Hwang Ui-jo are not 100%.

The Korea Football Association announced on the 28th (hereinafter Korean time) the 25-member list of the Korean men’s national team to participate in a friendly match in Europe in September. The Korean national team, led by coach Klinsman, will meet with Wales on the 8th and Saudi Arabia on the 13th for an evaluation match.

With voices of concern about manager Klinsman’s move ahead of the September evaluation match, another concern is the condition of the three strikers. Cho Kyu-seong, who showed his best performance after advancing to Europe, was injured on the 21st. Cho Kyu-sung, who was digesting the Brompton match, touched his hamstring in the 20th minute of the first half. The injury was not severe enough that he was able to walk off the pitch. Since then, Cho Kyu-seong has been recovering from an injury.

Coach Klinsman also explained that the selection of Cho Kyu-seong was not an unreasonable call, saying, “I decided that there was no difficulty in joining this call while continuing to communicate with my team, so I included it in the list.” Even a minor hamstring injury will take about two weeks to recover. There is a high possibility that the match against Wales, which will be held on the 8th, will be a comeback match for Cho Kyu-seong.

It was Cho Kyu-seong, who showed the best performance after moving to Mitwillan, but it is not easy to show 100% performance immediately after recovering from his injury. In the case of a hamstring injury, it will be difficult to digest all 90 minutes of the game because the injury is highly likely to recur.메이저사이트

The problem is that Cho Kyu-seong is not the only one in this situation. Oh Hyun-gyu has not been able to play since the match against Athletic Bilbao on the 2nd. Coach Brandon Rodgers said at the time, “Oh Hyun-gyu injured his calf in the match against Athletic Bilbao, but he trained without anyone knowing. He even trained on Sunday. After training, Oh Hyun-gyu told the medical department that there was something wrong with his calf. As a result, he had a problem with his calf. It will take four to six weeks,” he said.

Oh Hyun-gyu is also growing gradually as he successfully finishes the 2022-23 season, but has not been able to play for a month. Fortunately, it is scheduled to join from Scotland, so there will be no problems with local adaptation, but the sense of the game and physical strength cannot be 100%. Cho Kyu-seong is more concerned about his physical condition.

It is Hwang Eui-jo that has no health concerns, but the sense of the game is not good. Hwang Eui-jo, who returned to Nottingham immediately after his lease with FC Seoul expired, had a good start in the pre-season. From the first game of the preseason, he started scoring and raised expectations, but after that, he did not show much activity.

Hwang Eui-jo, who failed to score well in the starting competition, has not been able to show up since the friendly match against Stade Ren on the 3rd. He was sometimes included in the Premier League (EPL) match roster, but did not even make a substitute appearance. If the time of being unable to play continues, Hwang Ui-jo will also participate in the national team schedule after not being able to digest the game for about a month.

All three players, who are competing fiercely for strikers, are not in normal condition. I am concerned about whether we will be able to compete properly through the matches against Wales and Saudi Arabia. If the striker fails to show his presence, the burden of scoring will inevitably be concentrated on the captain, Son Heung-min.

Lee Kang-in, who led the attack under the Klinsman system, was also unable to be selected due to injury. Regarding this, coach Klinsman said, “Due to Lee Kang-in’s injury, difficulties are expected due to disruptions in game management. However, I will accept the reality and use it as an opportunity to prepare another plan.”

In order to clearly implement the new plan on the pitch, the good condition of the players should be the foundation, but the foundation is shaking and starting. I could have experimented with a different striker from the beginning like other positions, but coach Klinsman didn’t make any changes.

Hwang Eui-jo is the only striker who has scored in the 4 games played under Klinsman’s system. Cho Kyu-seong and Oh Hyeon-gyu also have to do their part, but it is regrettable that they are not in perfect physical condition. Whatever the consequences of this, the responsibility rests with Klinsman.

‘Signs of Jae-il Oh’ resurgence, Samsung clashes with top-tier KT NC this week

On the way to the rise, we will face the strong players of professional baseball this season. The Samsung Lions will play 3 consecutive matches against 2nd place KT Wiz this week, then bring in 4th place NC Dinos to their home room to play 3 consecutive matches. It is a good thing that Jae-il Oh showed signs of resurgence while meeting tough opponents.

8th place Samsung had a two-game winning streak last week. 7th place Lotte fell into a 7-game losing streak and the ride with Samsung decreased to 2.5 games. Hanwha, ranked 9th, one step below Samsung, had 6 consecutive losses, and the ride with Samsung took two games. For Samsung, it narrowed the distance to the pursued target and widened the gap with the chasing target.

It’s a situation where you can hit more and go up, but the opponent you meet is not easy. KT, who is winning 3 consecutive wins, is 3rd in team batting average (0.270) and 4th in team ERA (4.03). Samsung ranks 5th in team batting average (0.266) and 10th in team ERA (4.59), so KT is more stable in pitching.

Especially on the mound, the gap is not small. It was also the mound that led KT’s rise. The starting pitching staff, which includes William Cuevas, Wes Benjamin, Koh Young-pyo, Bae Seong-seong, and Eom Sang-baek, stands out. Looking at the starting pitchers alone, KT’s average ERA was 3rd (3.88), and Samsung was 7th (4.22). As for the bullpen, KT is 6th (4.30) and Samsung is 9th (5.19).

In Samsung’s three-game series against KT, Choi Chae-heung starts first. Next will be David Buchanan and Taylor Widener. It has always failed to live up to expectations. In the previous appearance (against the KIA Tigers on August 19), he pitched well with 2 runs in 6 innings.

Choi Chae-heung’s opponent is Kim Min. Um Sang-baek (7-6, 3.63 ERA) recently suffered a micro-fracture of his ribs and will start as a replacement. For Samsung, it would be better than dealing with Um Sang-baek, but the key is whether Choi Chae-heung can last at least 5 innings. If you don’t win the selection fight, your chances of winning are small.먹튀검증

Samsung has another problem. It is because of the fact that the newly brought Widener is pitching the so-called ‘pongdangpongdang’ like in the NC days. On the 13th, the first game after the transfer, against SSG Landers, he gave up 10 hits and 4 runs in 6⅔ innings, and in the match against KIA on the 18th, he scored 5 hits and no runs in 6 innings. However, in the match against Kiwoom Heroes on the 25th, he was battered with 11 hits and 7 runs in 4⅔ innings.

The reason NC broke up with Widener, who had good pitches, was because of the ups and downs. If this situation cannot be overcome, it will be difficult to predict that Samsung will go hand in hand with Widener next year. It is also a weakness that it is difficult to check the opponent’s stealing because of the large quick motion, which is a pitch preparation motion.

Oh Jae-il of the Samsung Lions. He is showing signs of resurgence after a long period of sluggishness. On the 27th, in the game against Kiwoom Heroes held at home in Daegu, he scored 3 hits. Provided by Samsung

It is nice to see Jae-il Oh showing signs of resurgence. He fell into a ‘100 hitter’ in endless sluggishness, but recently prepared an opportunity for a rebound. On the 26th, against Kiwoom, he hit a comeback home run at the end of the 8th inning, which was trailing 2 to 5, and hit 3 hits against Kiwoom on the 27th. There are many expectations that he will recover from the fact that sharp balls fly to the middle right in succession. If Jae-il Oh gives strength to the other line in earnest, Samsung’s offensive power can be greatly strengthened.

Coach Hong Myung-bo “I’m sorry for the players who were substituted in the second half…In-jae-gyu’s form is encouraging”

Ulsan Hyundai head coach Hong Myung-bo was disappointed that his side conceded an equalizer just before the end of the game to snatch a win that was within reach.

Ulsan drew 2-2 with Seoul in the 28th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Sunday.메이저사이트

Head coach Hong Myung-bo’s face was full of disappointment as he walked into the press conference after the match. “There are many reasons for the draw, but the players who came on as substitutes in the second half were not able to show their strength at all,” he said.

“We conceded the first goal and were down in the first half. They were motivated (due to the resignation of coach Ahn Ik-soo), but it was a game we could have won, but we lost due to a lack of concentration at the end.”

When asked about In Ji-kyu, who hasn’t scored in a long time, he said, “In Ji-kyu’s overall condition is good. Unlike his previous team, he seemed to have a hard time adjusting to the rhythm of playing one game and taking one game off, but he seems to be getting used to it. I think he will be a great addition to the team in the future.”

Ulsan, who conceded an equalizer just before the end of the game to settle for a disappointing draw, will host Gwangju FC on September 3.
