There are only 5 games left in the regular league, including this 29th round. After five games, a split round is played according to the established rankings. They met in a super match, with Suwon competing to stay and Seoul competing fiercely to enter Split A.
The biggest feature of this season’s Super Match is that both teams have never played under the same manager.
First, in the first match held last April, there was a change in Suwon’s coach. Suwon, which had been in a slump since the beginning of the season, fired coach Lee Byung-geun and entrusted coach Choi Seong-yong to act as acting coach while they search for a new coach. At that time, Choi’s managerial debut was against Seoul.
The first game was a complete victory for Seoul. Seoul won 3-1 at home with consecutive goals from Na Sang-ho, Hwang Ui-jo (Nottingham), and Palosevic. In particular, Hwang Eui-jo, who led Seoul’s rebound as the crown prince of coach Ahn Ik-soo, gave victory to Seoul fans with his first field goal.
In the second super match of the 19th round, a formal managerial match took place. When Suwon appointed coach Kim Byeong-soo, coach Kim experienced a super match for the first time. However, in the second match, the winner was Ahn’s Seoul. In a closely contested game, Willian scored the winning goal with a fantastic solo play.
And the third super match of the season. This time, the situation in Seoul was different.
After a 2-2 draw against Daegu FC on the 20th of last month, Coach Ahn conveyed his intention to resign, taking responsibility for his recent poor performance through an official press conference. It was a surprising statement that was not agreed upon with the club. Two days later, Seoul accepted Coach Ahn’s resignation and appointed Coach Kim Jin-gyu as acting manager.
Seoul, under the ‘acting coach Kim Jin-gyu system’, won a dramatic draw in the home game against first place Ulsan Hyundai. They were unable to protect Ilyuchenko’s first goal and allowed Joo Min-gyu to score consecutive goals to go 1-2, but in extra time in the second half, Willian scored a valuable point with a sensational shot after beating four defenders.
Although the foundation for a rebound was laid by demonstrating the ‘fighting spirit’ emphasized by Acting President Kim, the crisis continues. While they have achieved two wins in the last 10 games, they have fallen behind Gwangju FC and Jeonbuk Hyundai (42 points) and are being chased by Incheon United (40 points). This is the third super match where 3 points are required to enter Split A.
Suwon is also in a difficult situation. Coach Kim Byeong-soo has led the team and the team has changed from before, but the ups and downs in performance are still the same. In the previous game, they suffered a shocking 0-4 loss to Gwangju. If they fail to hunt Seoul at home this time, it will be even more difficult to stay.
Although there are changes in the third super match, the importance of ‘victory’ has become greater than ever for both teams.
