Daejeon Hana Citizen, who are currently undefeated at home, will 스포츠토토 challenge to go undefeated in their opening three games.
Daejeon will play the third round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Pohang Steelers at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 11th. Currently, Daejeon is 4th in the league (4 points) with 2 wins and 1 draw.
After the opening, it is Daejeon that continues a good flow by running an undefeated march in 2 matches. Daejeon, which defeated Gangwon FC 2-0 in the opening game, showed their tenacity not to give up until the end in the last round. Daejeon, which was promoted to the K-League 1 stage and left for the first time, allowed a preemptive goal against Incheon. However, Thiago’s goal turned the game around in the 19th minute of the first half, and Kim In-gyun’s goal in the 21st minute of the second half succeeded in turning the tables. After that, I gave up the lead again, but I didn’t give up until the end. In the end, in the 43rd minute of the second half, Kim In-kyun scored a dramatic equalizer, bringing a valuable point to Incheon.
Now, Daejeon returns to the home room and plays the third game of the season. The opponent is Pohang. Pohang is at the top of the table with two consecutive victories since the opening. I got to face a team that is riding a good flow, but Daejeon is also causing a sensation from the beginning of the first year of promotion. They have enough power to get 3 points.
In particular, Daejeon is a stronger team at home. Since July 2021, they have continued their unbeaten streak of 23 home matches (16 wins, 7 draws). In the record, it is recording the first place in the K-League (tied with Ulsan Hyundai). Since then, Daejeon, which started running undefeated at home again from the 35th round of last year, has not lost for 7 games (5 wins, 2 draws) until the opening game of this season. In the opening game, they reported their first K-League 1 win in front of 20,000 fans who visited the stadium.
The key player in Daejeon to continue the good flow is Cho Yoo-min. Cho Yoo-min joined Daejeon ahead of last season and played in 35 K-League 2 matches as a key defender for the team. His excellent defensive leadership ability and great strength are in positioning. In particular, Cho Yu-min showed a powerful appearance not only in set-piece defense but also in attack situations, scoring 7 goals last season. Pohang is currently recording 5 points in 2 games. As the attack is threatening, the role of Cho Yu-min, who is in charge of the rear, is very important this season. Anton, who is new to the team this season, is also a player to keep an eye on. Anton, a member of the Azerbaijan national team, is 186cm/76kg strong in the air and has the ability to mark people. He is a versatile player who can also be used as a left fullback because he is particularly good at participating in attacks as a left-footed center back. Anton has already started for two consecutive games and is smoothly integrating into the team.
Coach Lee Min-seong said, “I will do my best to continue to show strong at home and give home fans a victory in this match as well. I will enter the game with a fighting spirit.”
