Daegu FC overcomes numerical disadvantage in the ‘War of the Three Points’ to claim a thrilling theater victory over Suwon Samsung.

Daegu overcame a 10-11 numerical disadvantage to win 1-0 against Suwon Samsung in the 30th round of the 2023 Hana OneQ K League 1 at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.

With just four games remaining in the top-to-bottom split round, including today’s match, every game is a final for the mid- to upper-tier teams, with the exception of “second-place” Ulsan and Pohang. Earlier in the day, third-place Gwangju beat fourth-place Seoul 1-0 to move to 48 points, while Incheon beat Jeju (35 points) to move into sixth place with 43 points and Daegu (41 points) dropped to seventh. Fourth through sixth-place Seoul, Jeonbuk and Incheon formed the “43-point group” alongside each other. Daegu had a chance to surprise into fourth place with 44 points if they caught last-place Suwon Samsung, which would be a watershed moment in the battle for the top spot. Suwon Samsung was also desperate. The day before, last-place Gangwon had won 3-1 in an underwater battle at Jeonbuk to claim three points. With 24 points, they pushed Suwon to the bottom of the table with 22 points. At home, Suwon Samsung also clinched three points.메이저놀이터

First half

There were many changes in the starting lineup for both teams. There were a lot of injuries. Se Jing-ya, the “King of Cod,” was unable to play due to a rib injury. The bone hasn’t fused yet. Choi Won-kwon opted to start Edgar. Suwon Samsung’s “Soccer Taoist” Kim Bo-kyung returned to the field for the first time in more than two months on July 12 against Pohang. Both teams also changed their three-back combinations. Daegu started Kim Kang-san in place of Cho Jin-woo, who was suspended. Suwon Samsung head coach Kim Byung-soo started “2001 youth” Lee Kyu-seok. It was his league debut. Young Gun, who made his first start when Daegu knocked them out of the FA Cup quarterfinals in May, was ordered to shut down Vasellus this time. In the Daegu midfield, Hwang Jae-won replaced Hwang Jang-won, who was away at the Hangzhou Asian Games, and Choi Young-eun donned the goalkeeping gloves in place of Oh Seung-hoon, who had surgery to remove a lump from the back of his neck.

In the first half, things didn’t go well for either team. Suwon couldn’t build up due to Daegu’s defense, and Daegu, without Sejingya, couldn’t execute their trademark counterattacks. In the sixth minute, Park Hee-joon made a daring move into the box, but was ruled offside. In the 8th minute, Vassellus broke through, but Ko Jae-hyun’s cutback was off-target. 10th minute, Suwon’s Go Seung-bum’s mid-range shot was saved by Daegu goalkeeper Choi Young-eun. In the 14th minute, Kim Joo-won’s shot following Kazuki’s corner kick went narrowly wide. In the 24th minute, Go Jae-hyun rushed forward after a cross from Hong Chul, and Kim Jin-hyuk’s powerful shot rebounded. Suwon goalkeeper Yang Hyung-mo made the save. In the 27th minute, Suwon missed a crucial chance. Ahn Byung-joon’s left-footed shot that deflected off Daegu goalkeeper Choi Young-eun, who was out in front of the goal, narrowly missed the target. In the 37th minute, Daegu’s Go Jae-hyun missed with a left-footed curling kick. In the 43rd minute, Ko Seung-bum, who took over from Kim Bo-kyung’s kill pass, fired a shot that was blocked by Kim Jin-hyuk’s toe. Both teams lacked finishing touches. The first half ended 0-0

Suwon Samsung made a game-changing move at the start of the second half. Instead of Kim Kyung-joong, Kim Bo-kyung, and Park Hee-joon, they introduced Lee Ki-je, Mullich, and Werik Popo. In the sixth minute of the second half, Daegu won a free kick, but Hong Jung-woon’s header from Hong Chul’s cross went just wide. In the 10th minute of the second half, Daegu suffered a heartbreaker. Daegu midfielder Beltola was shown a red card for elbowing Werikpopo. With an 11-10 numerical advantage and Daegu without Sejingya, Suwon Samsung took advantage of the opportunity.

Coach Kim Byung-soo made his intentions clear by taking off Ahn Byung-joon and bringing on Yoo Je-ho. In the 16th minute, Daegu brought on veteran Lee Yong-rae in place of the heavily used Park Se-jin. In the 20th minute, Kim Joo-won, who did a good job of blocking Edgar, was stretchered off and Ko Myung-seok came on. Both teams exhausted their five substitutions. Suwon pushed Daegu hard despite their numerical advantage, but their finishing was a problem with just two goals in their last five matches. They failed to capitalize on their chances. In the 35th minute, Lee Kyu-seok, who played a lot in his debut, complained of muscle cramps, but there was nothing to be done as he had already exhausted his substitute cards. Suwon continued to attack the goal, but there was no solution. In the 31st minute, Edgar’s shot from a cross by Jang Jang-won after a flank break went narrowly wide of the goal. In the 36th minute, Mulicic’s cannonball free kick was met by Choi Young-eun with her whole body. In the 38th minute, Lee Ki-jae was shown a yellow card for colliding with an onrushing Baselus from the flank. Daegu survived the 90 minutes with one substitution. It was a fierce match, but there was no decisive scene. In the 44th minute of the second half, Daegu’s Jang Jang-won took a desperate shot. He gave his all until the end. The chants of “We are Daegu!” from Daegu’s away fans and the chants of Suwon’s Grand Blue were fierce. In the second half of extra time, it was Daegu’s time. Following a kill pass from Vassellus, Go Jae-hyun fired a shot on a counterattack from Tuhon. Coach Choi Won-kwon applauded. In the nine minutes of added time, Daegu refused to give up. In the final minute of stoppage time, Vasellus’ desperate shot after breaking down the flank of a tired Lee Kyu-seok finally found the back of the net.

Daegu wrote the drama. Without Sejingya, in the worst possible situation of “away, outnumbered”, they won their first three consecutive games of the season. The Big Bird rippled with “Wea Daegu” chants. They earned three points away from home and reached 44 points. They stand in fourth place in the league behind Ulsan, Pohang, and Seoul. Suwon Samseong remained at the bottom of the table with 22 points, two points behind Gangwon.
