Professional football K League 1 Gangwon FC and Incheon United aim for a ‘rebound in crisis’ side by side.
Gangwon and Incheon will play the 7th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at 2:00 pm on the 16th at Songam Sports Town in Chuncheon.
Both teams aren’t doing well in the early stages. Gangwon has not yet reported their first win with 3 draws and 3 losses (3 points). Incheon is also at the bottom of the table with 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses (5 points). They have no goals in their last 3 matches, including a 0-5 loss to promoted team Gwangju FC.
In particular, Gangwon and Incheon made good achievements last season, such as advancing to the semifinals and securing the right to participate in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), so the sluggishness at the beginning of this season is more painful.
Both teams are putting in a lot of effort토토사이트. After losing the home game against Jeju United on the 9th, Gangwon had a sincere conversation with the supporters inside the stadium.
Gangwon fans comforted the bowed players, saying, “Even if it’s difficult now, I’ll trust you and support you until the end, so please show victory in the next game.” Yang Hyun-joon, who has not yet scored a goal this season, shed tears.
Gangwon fans have been giving flowers to the team from supporters when the atmosphere was not good, but this time, they are as cautious as possible, refraining from even that, fearing that it would be a burden.
An official from Gangwon said, “The players are well aware of the fans’ feelings. Because they did well last season, it seems that this early sluggishness is coming more difficult.” I know you showed tears in your heart,” he explained.
At the same time, he said, “He is preparing for a rebound while bringing the atmosphere as good as possible,” he said about the team situation.
Incheon is also somewhat stagnant compared to last season when it was at its peak. There are no goals in 3 consecutive games, and the number of goals conceded (12 goals) as of the 14th is the highest in the K League 1.
Incheon is preparing for the Gangwon match as if it were to play the opening game again with great pride. After losing 0-2 to Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 9th, Incheon coach Cho Seong-hwan predicted a change and rebound, saying, “The problem and the answer are ultimately on the ground,” and “I will overcome this crisis by being more aggressive and challenging.”
An official from Incheon said, “After the coach’s words, the players are also eating their minds again.” I am also training,” he said.
Fortunately, Incheon has succeeded in increasing its power and changing the mood, as most of the key players who have been missing from injuries, such as Lee Myung-joo and Kim Bo-seop, are imminent to return.
Of the two teams, Gangwon shed tears and Incheon fiercely fighting, which team will overcome the initial crisis and win a valuable victory?
