Although it is still one game, the tempo has definitely increased.
FC Seoul beat Incheon United 2-1 in the opening game of Hana One Q 2023 K League 1 held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 25th. This is the result thanks to the consecutive goals of Im Sang-hyeop and Kim Joo-sung, who are “transferring students.” Since March 13, 2021 (1-0 win), it was a commemorative day to catch Incheon in 7 games in a situation where the relative performance of 6 games, 3 draws and 3 losses was inferior.
Seoul quickly developed an offensive and defensive transition. After taking the ball with strong forward pressure, he went on the attack without delay. In particular, Im Sang-hyeop and Hwang Ui-jo, who changed their uniforms to Seoul ahead of this season, aimed their shots at the Incheon goal without delay.토토사이트
In the meantime, under the guidance of coach Ahn, Seoul has shown possession soccer with the topic of rear build-up. However, the results were somewhat disappointing. In particular, the focus was not on the front door. He scored 44 goals in 38 matches last season. It was next to Seongnam (37 goals), which was relegated to the bottom of the K-League 1.
It’s still one game, but it’s definitely different. The tempo of the game itself rose. After the game, coach Ahn also said, “You can think of it as operating tactics flexibly according to the situation. Last year, he had a slow attack speed,” he said, looking back, “I tried to solve this part during the winter period. It’s not enough, but the change I was aiming for appeared and it’s quite encouraging.”
On this day, the ball share was 39%, far behind Incheon (61%), but the flow was not. They recruited Shin Jin-ho and took the lead against Lee Myung-joo, who built the best midfielder in the league. Seoul, which showed ‘leading soccer’ based on sharp counterattacks, recorded 13 shots and 8 effective shots.
It is said that after the game, Seoul officials were satisfied, saying, “I felt refreshed” while talking about the changed tempo.
Director Ahn, who had a fresh start, said, “The support of the fans gave us strength. It became an opportunity to work hard. I am fortunate to have a good start,” he said. “Last season, there were many unsatisfactory parts. I expect to improve this year, and the players are preparing well. I will not be intoxicated with victory, and I will do well this year because last year taught me a lesson.”
