Jeju United, which fell to the bottom after losing the last game against Ulsan, will fight for its first victory in the upcoming ‘Orange Derby’ against Gangwon FC to reverse the current team atmosphere that is only a draw.
Jeju will clash with Gangwon in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 메이저사이트 round 6 away match held at the main stadium of Songam Sports Town in Chuncheon on Sunday, April 9 at 7:00 pm.
Currently, Jeju has fallen to the bottom of the league with 2 points from 2 draws and 3 losses. There is no place to retreat anymore. With the escape from 3 consecutive losses and the first win of the season, the atmosphere needs to be reversed.
The long-standing bad relationship with Gangwon must also be cut off. Since winning 1-0 away from Gangwon on May 25, 2019, they have not won against Gangwon in 8 matches (4 draws and 4 losses). In particular, they are building a new rivalry with Gangwon. As they share the same symbolic color (orange) and are sponsored by the global sports brand ‘FILA’, the confrontation between the two teams is called ‘FILA Orange Derby’.
First, we need to break Gangwon’s victory equation. Not only Yang Hyeon-jun, who is returning from injury in the last 5 round against Suwon Samsung, but also Kim Dae-won, who is called Jeju’s natural enemy, must be completely sealed. Kim Dae-won failed to record a single offensive point in 5 games this season, but he has recorded 3 goals and 4 assists in 4 games against Jeju, so he must not be vigilant.
Control the pass stem and depressurization starting from Kim Dae-won with forward pressure, and block the side build-up and counterattack of Gangwon with bold overlapping on both sides. In particular, the rise of Kim Dae-won and Kim Jin-ho, who jointly scored in the last game, is not easy, so Jeju must effectively block them to have a chance of winning.
Therefore, the versatility of Ahn Tae-hyun, who made a comeback against Ulsan last time, can be used more. In addition to the right fullback, depending on the tactical operation, it is possible to digest all wingers, wingbacks, central midfielders, and attacking midfielders, so it is possible to use customized tactics in the Gangwon War.
In the attack, Yuri must keep the scorer running. In the last game against Ulsan, Yuri succeeded in scoring from a penalty kick chance in the 46th minute of the first half and scored the long-awaited Jeju debut goal. In particular, his confidence rose to the fullest as it was his scorer to celebrate his 100th professional career appearance. Yuri is showing extraordinary enthusiasm by aiming straight for the field goal in the match against Gangwon.
Yuri said, “The team’s victory is more important than ever. With the dedication and help of my colleagues, I scored a goal on the stage of my 100th professional appearance. In the Gangwon match, I have to repay their expectations with goals. The current crisis I will do my best to prepare for the new opportunity. I want to bring joy to the fans.”
