Edgar soars, victory in Daegu with defense of land bullets… Suwon’s 10 games ‘no win’
Daegu FC striker Edgar once again flew from Suwon. Daegu won 1-0 thanks to Edgar’s two goals in a row.
Daegu, led by coach Choi Won-kwon (42), won 1-0 in the 10th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against Suwon held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 30th.
Edgar once again took flight from a corner kick. Edgar, who also made a corner kick header in the match against Suwon FC during the week, scored the winning goal in the 8th minute of the second half.
Daegu ranked 7th in the league with 3 wins (4 draws and 3 losses). In particular, it was a meaningful victory in a situation where ace Sejinya had left.
The home team, Suwon, 메이저놀이터started the game with a 4-2-3-1 score. Lee Sang-min, Ahn Byung-jun, and Akosti started at the forefront. Lee Jong-seong, Yeom Ki-hun, and Basani formed the midfield. In the back 4, Lee Ki-je, Bultuis, Go Myeong-seok, Jang Ho-ik, and Yang Hyung-mo put on goalkeeper gloves.
The away team, Daegu, came out with a 3-4-3 formation. Baselus, Edgar, and Ko Jae-hyeon were in the front, and Lee Yong-rae and Lee Jin-yong were in charge of the midfield. Keita and Hwang Jae-won were placed on the left and right sides. In the defense, Jin-Woo Cho, Jeong-Woon Hong, and Jin-Hyuk Kim were the back three, and Young-Eun Choi was the goalkeeper.
The first half was held as Suwon’s acting head coach Choi Seong-yong interviewed before the game. Suwon increased possession and put pressure on Daegu in order to score.
In the beginning, the ‘veteran’ Yeom Ki-hoon’s performance shone. He threatened Daegu by succeeding in goalkeeping successively in the threatened area. In the 7th minute of the first half, Lee Ki-je attempted a powerful mid-range shot from a long distance. Goalkeeper Choi Young-eun stepped back and blocked it.
Yeom Ki-hoon-Basani developed an attack by holding the ball for a long time. On the other hand, Daegu aimed for a counterattack through Basellus-Koh Jae-hyeon on the side. Daegu’s gun was opened by Basellus. In the 18th minute of the first half, Baselus took over Ko Jae-hyeon and Edgar’s linked pass and tried to wind it up. It didn’t fit properly, so the keeper Yang Hyeong-mo easily caught it.
After that, a dizzying situation unfolded for Daegu. In an aerial contest situation, defenders Kim Jin-hyeok, Jo Jin-woo, and Hwang Jae-won collided with the keeper and the opposing striker, respectively, and were unable to get up from the ground for a while. Then, 3 minutes later, Ko Jae-hyun was stopped by Lee Sang-min’s tackle in the process of breaking through alone, but at this time, he was unable to stand up for a while due to a shin collision. Fortunately, it did not result in any major injuries.
The game got increasingly rough. Akosti and Baselus each received yellow cards for rough fouls. At the end of the first half, Suwon’s attack spewed fire.
In the 44th minute, Basani broke through both defenses with a wonderful turn and attempted a left-footed mid-range shot. Acosti’s cross was connected to Lee Sang-min in the box, but was stopped by Hwang Jae-won’s defense. Suwon connected all of Yeom Ki-hoon and Ki-je Lee’s sharp crosses into the box until the end, but Daegu’s hand-to-hand defense blocked it again this time.
As the second half began, both teams’ command towers brought out replacement cards. Suwon replaced Lee Sang-min with Ryu Seung-woo, and Daegu replaced Baselus with Lee Geun-ho.
