Daegu FC is looking for three points against Suwon FC. Once again, they’ll be counting on the head of long striker Edgar.
Daegu FC will face Suwon FC in the 18th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park at 4:30 p.m. on April 10.
Daegu’s five-match unbeaten streak came to an unfortunate end with a 0-1 defeat at home to Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 17th round of the K League 1 on July 7. Currently, Daegu is in eighth place in the league with 24 points from 17 games with six wins, six draws, and five losses. The difference between second and eighth place is only six points, meaning Daegu needs three points to gain an advantage in the tight mid-table battle.
Daegu played Suwon FC to a 1-1 draw in their first meeting of the season, thanks to a late Edgar equalizer. Edgar, who has scored a total of four goals against Suwon FC, will be looking to find the back of the net once again, but his fellow strikers will also be looking to do the same.
Midfielder Lee Jin-yong, who missed the previous round due to accumulating cautions, will be available for selection, and the backline of Kim Jin-hyuk, Hong Jung-woon, and Cho Jin-woo, who kept a clean sheet with their aerial dominance and tenacious defense, will also be looking for a win.
Coach Choi Won-kwon said, “The mid-table is mixed, but we will try to move up through the Suwon FC game. We have an A-Match break after this game, so we will not spare our physical strength. I believe our strikers will score goals if we block the movements of Ras, Lee Seung-woo, and Yoon Beom-garam. We will give a good show to the Daegu fans who came to Daepak.” 안전놀이터
Their opponents Suwon FC suffered an upset loss against league leaders Ulsan in the last round. They are 10th in the league (18 points), so we expect them to be even more desperate. The key player will be Yoon Beom-garam, who has scored in two consecutive matches.
The head-to-head record between Daegu and Suwon FC is 5 wins, 8 draws, and 5 losses, and the last 10 matches have been evenly matched with 3 wins, 5 draws, and 2 losses. The winner will have the advantage in the head-to-head record, so they will not be satisfied with sharing a point with Suwon FC in this match.
