The 37th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 between FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung was held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 25th. 스포츠토토 It was the last super match of the season, and it was a big match that drew keen attention as Suwon Samsung’s de facto relegation could be confirmed. This is why 36,000 people filled Sangambeol even in cold weather.
The home team Seoul allowed Basani to score a mid-range shot in the 18th minute of the second half and was dragged 0-1. The Seoul home cheering section fell into silence, and explosive shouts were infested in the Suwon away cheering section. Because I saw a ray of hope at the edge of the cliff. The contrast between Seoul and Suwon was sharply divided.
Seoul was in a hurry. To make matters worse, captain Osmar made a rough tackle in the 43rd minute of the second half and was sent off directly. He was determined to score an equalizer and a come-from-behind goal, but his body did not follow him. There was still plenty of time, though. I’ve been given nine minutes of extra time.
The incident took place in three minutes of extra time. Ki Sung-yueng tripped Suwon Jeon Jin-woo’s leg. It wasn’t even an inflationary situation. The desire to kick the free kick quickly recognized Jeon Jin-woo, who was in front of the ball, as a disrupter and pushed him roughly. Jun Jin-woo fell to the spot.
In an instant, the teams of both teams gathered here. Palosevic Seoul and Lee Sang-min Suwon collided, and Ko Seung-beom Suwon, who was stopping them, was assaulted in the face while standing in the middle of the vortex. Seoul Physical Coach Jung Hoon-ki stormed the ground and punched Ko Seung-bum in the face. Coach Jung was sent off after the VAR readout. Coach Chung complained to the referee against the decision and entered the locker room.
War of nerves occurs frequently in all rival matches around the world. However, it is very rare for the home team losing at the end of the second half to cause a war of nerves. In order to somehow save time and turn the tables, he endured the opponent’s provocation, and the oldest member of Seoul, Ki Sung-yueng, became a catalyst himself. Nothing has been gained.
What’s the result. The extra time continued to pass. Seoul even goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom participated in the corner kick to tie the game, but Seoul lost 0-1 without hitting a shot properly. The fans of rival Suwon sang along with the cheering song Nasa Nasu My Love Suwon as if they were going to engulf Sangam. Seoul fans hurriedly left Sangam with their heads down.
What if Ki Sung-yueng maintained his composure and continued his free kick. Seoul home fans may not have dropped their heads. Sangam may not have been covered with Suwon cheering songs. Supermatch may not have been marred by unnecessary assault on the social news page beyond sports news. Seoul suffered the most damage.
On the same day, Jeonbuk Hyundai and Gwangju FC faced off at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. Fourth-ranked Jeonbuk and third-ranked Gwangju struggled for the right to play in the AFC Champions League Elite next season. Jeonbuk, the home team, needed a win because it could go to ACLE up to the third place in the K League.
Jeonbuk took a 2-0 lead in the first half with consecutive goals by Ahn Hyun-beom and Song Min-gyu. Jeonbuk also led the lead in the second half. As long as there were no major variables, Jeonbuk’s victory was expected. Considering that the next game is an away match at Hyundai in Ulsan, the best scenario was to finish without any injuries left.
However, Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk) collided with Timo Gwangju in the 35th minute of the second half. During the competition between the two, Kim Jin-soo fell, and Timo pulled Kim Jin-soo’s ankle with his hand. Kim Jin-soo pushed Timo’s chest and Timo responded. For your information, the game is not suspended. While Gwangju players went up to the Jeonbuk camp and counterattacked, the two looked face-to-face near the half line.
When the ball went out of the line, the referee called Timo and Kim Jin-soo to warn them. Kim Jin-soo will miss the final match against Ulsan Hyundai due to the accumulation of five warnings due to this warning. It is quite deadly. Only by beating Ulsan to advance to ACLE can they reach the third place, but Jeonbuk’s key defender Kim Jin-soo should watch the game on TV.
This is not the end. Kim Jin-soo got more excited and pushed Timo’s chest again when he was warned. Timo fell back and looked at the referee as if he had been waiting. The referee did not give Kim Jin-soo an additional warning. Kim Jin-su could have been sent off in the final home match.
If Kim Jin-soo had not been warned for ignoring Timo’s provocation, he could have participated in the Hyundaiga Derby and boosted his leap to the third place. Ulsan, which has already confirmed its victory, is relatively less motivated. If Jeonbuk beats Ulsan and Gwangju fails to beat Pohang, Jeonbuk will play in the ACLE in third place. At a time when each of the main players was valuable, Kim Jin-soo caused himself to miss the match against Ulsan.
Lee Jong-sung, another veteran of the Super Match, was also warned. Lee Jong-sung received a yellow card for rough tackling Ki Sung-yueng in the 22nd minute of the first half. As a result, five warnings are accumulated, and they cannot play against Gangwon FC, the final match of the 38th round. The team that lost the Suwon-Gangwon match will be directly demoted to the second division, and Suwon will have to face Gangwon without captain Lee Jong-sung.
Ko Yo-han, who was replaced at half-time, is also at the center of the issue. During the aforementioned melee in the extra time of the second half, Ko Yo-han made a surprise appearance. In the scene of the collision, a controversy arose that Ko Yo-han dragged Ko Seung-beom’s hair. It was difficult to accurately distinguish who was who on the broadcast screen because about 20 people were tangled in black padding, but fan cam videos showed Ko Yo-han in contact with him.
An official from the Korea Professional Football Association said, We will investigate the collision between Seoul and Suwon. There is a high possibility that all players and coaches involved in the assault will be identified and disciplined afterwards, he said. Ko Seung-beom said, I was punched for the first time in my career as a soccer player. I’m embarrassed why I have to get hit and why I have to grab my head, he complained. Kim Jin-kyu, acting head coach of Seoul, bowed his head, saying, Many people, including young fans, came to the stadium, and there was no need to show that.
One of the reasons why experienced veterans are treated is their excellent ability to respond to crises. It is expected that the team will lead juniors who have been shaken in a difficult situation to dig into the crisis. However, in the K League last weekend, veterans caused a crisis and damaged the team.
