‘Shin Jin-ho Derby’ Pohang vs Incheon, ‘Two consecutive wins’ Gangwon… K League 1 Round 10 Preview
Hana One Q K League 1 2023 marks the 10th round since it opened. With a fierce ranking battle unfolding from the beginning, an exciting confrontation awaits in this round as well.
Match of Round – Pohang and Incheon meet in a completely different atmosphere
In the 10th round, 2nd place Pohang Steelers (19 points) and 10th place Incheon United (9 points) meet. This season is a special year for both teams. This is because Pohang celebrated its 50th anniversary and Incheon celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Therefore, ahead of the opening of the season, Pohang promised to win, and Incheon raised expectations with a massive reinforcement as it entered the first Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL). However, about two months after the opening, the atmosphere of the two teams is quite different.
First of all, the atmosphere of the home team Pohang is the best. After the opening, it is the only one of the 12 K-League 1 clubs to go undefeated (5 wins, 4 draws). With captain Kim Seung-dae at the head, the young guns Koh Young-jun and Lee Ho-jae, who have improved their performance, the new midfield combination Kim Jong-woo and Oberdan, and transfer students Baek Seong-dong, Jeka, and Kim In-seong, who have perfectly integrated into the team, are showing an even performance. Goalkeepers Hwang In-jae, Ha Chang-rae, Park Seung-wook, and Shim Sang-min, who conceded only 8 goals in 9 games, also have a solid defensive line, so there is no room for water to leak on both sides of the offense and defense. 카지노사이트
On the other hand, away team Incheon is off to a shaky start. Contrary to what was highly anticipated at the beginning of the season, they only managed to win 2 out of 9 games. In particular, with the 4th place in the lowest score (9 points) and the 2nd place in the most goals (15 goals), both offense and defense are in need of a breakthrough. However, Chun Seong-hoon, the “returned youth”, emerged as a new hope for the offense by scoring multiple goals as well as his debut goal in the K-League. In addition, Shin Jin-ho, who is dealing with his parents, pledges to do well in this confrontation with extraordinary motivation.
