Daegu FC, a professional football club that sharpened its sword during the cold winter, will show its achievements to the citizens of Daegu. Although they lost the first game of the season unfortunately, Daegu must win the upcoming home opener and give joy to the locals.스포츠토토
◆Choi Won-kwon-ho “The offense passed, the defense was fine”
Daegu FC’s first step of this season was very disappointing. In the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 1st round away match against Pohang Steelers at Pohang Steel Yard on the 26th, Ko Jae-hyun and Sejingya failed to keep the score and lost 2-3.
Daegu’s sharp counterattack that day was satisfactory. The triangular formation of Baselus, Sejingya, and Ko Jae-hyeon created opportunities by penetrating the opposing camp whenever possession of the ball passed. The transition from defense to attack was quick. Serato and Lee Jin-yong, a midfield combination that raised expectations, also performed well throughout the offense and defense.
Above all, the biggest harvest is that we confirmed the growth of Ko Jae-hyeon in ‘Gojagi’. Koh Jae-hyeon’s amazing positioning ability shined on the set piece, Daegu’s main scoring route. Ko Jae-hyun scored the opening goal that day and even got a penalty kick, all of which were in Daegu’s corner kick situation. Ko Jae-hyun’s quick and clever judgment made him look forward to his performance this season.
However, there were many disappointing scenes when it came to his defensive ability. Daegu played a stable defense from the beginning of the game against Pohang, but at the end of the second half, the defensive concentration completely collapsed. This was also a chronic problem in Daegu that had been pointed out since last season.
In particular, Daegu’s defense completely missed the movement of Pohang Lee Ho-jae, who was substituted in the second half. Lee Ho-jae scored two goals in a free state without much pressure. In the final come-from-behind goal scene, goalkeeper Oh Seung-hoon’s concentration was also disappointing.
While preparing for this season, Daegu honed their unique ‘counter-attack’ tactic. If the defense, which is the root of tactics, is shaken, it means that the preparations made so far will be in vain.
Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon, who took off the title of acting coach from this season, also seemed dissatisfied with the results.
Coach Choi said after the game, “The opening match is always difficult. I expected it to be a difficult match.” It’s a pity that we can’t have more counterattacks, but it will get better.”
◆Aiming for the first win of the season against Jeju Daegu
faces Jeju United in the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 2nd round home opening game held at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 4th.
The opponent, Jeju, failed to score in the match against Suwon Samsung in the last round and finished the match 0-0. Although his scoring ability was dull, veteran midfielder Koo Ja-cheol’s coordination ability was still a threat.
Jeju ranked 5th last season, ranking higher than Daegu (8th). It’s obviously not an easy opponent, but considering the home ground advantage, it’s a team that can be caught enough.
First of all, Daegu has no bad memories of meeting Jeju recently. Last season, Daegu faced Jeju three times and had a good record of one win and two draws.
Moreover, Jeju faced bad news in the last home opener, with injuries continuing to appear one after another. Along with the team’s core midfielder Choi Young-joon, defender Jeon Seong-jin was also replaced due to injury. As the opponent’s defense and midfield are weakened, Daegu’s counterattack is expected to be more effective.
On the other hand, Daegu has prepared various attractions such as ▷ Wang Victo and Wang Rika photo zone ▷ fan signing event ▷ player escort for the upcoming home opening match. During halftime, TVs and refrigerators are presented through a lottery for those who enter.
