As a result, Suwon FC, who added 3 points, recorded 29 points, narrowing the gap with 9th place Jeju United (34 points) to 5. On the other hand, 8th place Daejeon (37 points) failed to advance to 6th place.

‘Lee Seung-woo’s winning goal’ Suwon FC, on the rise with 3 wins in the last 5 games,

Daejeon used a 3-5-2 formation. Lee Chang-geun guarded the goal, and Anton, Jo Yu-min, and Kim Hyun-woo formed the defense. The midfield consisted of Kang Yun-seong, Joo Se-jong, Lee Jin-hyun, Kim Young-wook, and Kim Ji-hoon, and the top two consisted of Thiago and Leandro.

Suwon FC fought back with 4-3-3. Nodong-gun wore the goalkeeper’s gloves, and Dong-ho Jeong, Hugo Gomes, Shinsegae, and Joo-yeop Kim formed the back four. The midfield consisted of Lee Young-jae, Lee Seung-woo, and Yoon Bit-garam, and the front line consisted of Kang Min-seong, Kim Hyun, and Lee Kwang-hyuk.

Daejeon had the upper hand in the midfield and possession battle. In the 18th minute of the first half, Leandro and Lee Jin-hyun threatened Suwon FC with shots. In the 29th minute of the first half, Leandro caught goalkeeper Dong-geon No’s pass with forward pressure and shot, but failed to score.

Suwon FC also launched a counterattack. In the 31st minute of the first half, Lee Gwang-hyuk headed a cross from the left, which was blocked by goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun. However, one minute later, the first goal came from Suwon FC. In the 32nd minute of the first half, Hugo Gomez passed with a header from a left corner kick. Afterwards, Kim Hyeon dropped the ball with his header and Lee Seung-woo pushed it in with his right foot at the far post. It was a scene that showed accurate positioning and quickness.

Suwon FC continued the good trend. In the 37th minute of the first half, Lee Young-jae’s half volley from the front of the penalty box hit the top net. In the 39th minute of the first half, Lee Kwang-hyuk’s cutback pass from the right was connected to Kim Hyun’s right-footed non-stop shot, but it was blocked by the goalkeeper, leaving a regret.

As the second half began, Daejeon replaced Joo Se-jong and Kim Young-wook with Kim In-gyun and Lee Hyun-sik. Suwon FC also removed Kang Min-seong and added Oh In-pyo.

Daejeon created a good opportunity early in the second half. In the second minute of the second half, Lee Hyun-sik’s cutback and Leandro’s shot were blocked by the goalkeeper. In the 7th minute of the second half, Lee Jin-hyun’s shot after receiving a pass from Thiago went over the goal.

The two teams attempted to make changes by bringing out replacement cards again. Daejeon added Oh Jae-seok and Lee Sun-yu in the 10th and 15th minutes of the second half, respectively, while Suwon FC brought in Kim Seon-min in the 13th minute of the second half.

As the atmosphere did not change, Daejeon made a game-winning move by substituting striker Yoo Kang-hyeon for center back Cho Yu-min in the 34th minute of the second half. However, Suwon FC had a chance to escape. In the 38th minute of the second half, Park Cheol-woo scored a penalty kick from Anton. Kim Hyun, who took the kicker, succeeded, but it was canceled when Hugo Gomes crossed the line in the lead.

Kim Hyun’s second penalty kick shot was blocked by goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun. This time, just before Kim Hyun shot, goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun’s foot fell off the goal line, and a penalty kick was called again. Hyeon Kim’s third attempt went over the crossbar. Kim Hyun, who was aiming for his first goal of the season, could not help but feel a lot of disappointment.

Despite an uneasy one-goal lead, Suwon FC effectively blocked Daejeon’s offensive and achieved a valuable victory.

Seungwoo Lee, successful transformation of central midfielder

Suwon FC was promoted to K League 1 in 2021 and brought a breath of fresh air by taking 5th and 7th place over two seasons. However, this season, they have been hovering around the bottom since the beginning. 12th place will undergo direct relegation, and 10th and 11th place will have to play promotion playoffs. Suwon FC is putting their lives on the line in every game to enter the 9th place, which is the remaining Maginot line.

It was in August that the team atmosphere began to revive little by little. They have turned to an upward trend by recording 3 wins and 2 losses in the last 5 games, and the key to the change is Seung-Woo Lee. After leaving the European stage last season and entering K League 1, he shook off the concerns around him and showed off his health with 14 goals and 3 assists.

In the first half of this season, the team faltered due to injuries and poor performance. In addition to the decrease in attack points, Suwon FC had to struggle in the relegation zone.

Seungwoo Lee recently changed his position to central midfielder. The effect was immediately visible in the 25th round match against Suwon Samsung. He scored the winning goal and was selected as MVP of the 25th round of K League 1.

Instead of scoring goals by penetrating the front line or carrying the ball by dribbling in the second line, he has moved down to the third line this season and is participating in the team’s build-up. It should be noted that despite his change of position, Seung-Woo Lee exploded for a whopping 4 goals in 5 games. By taking on a more free role, Lee Seung-woo is better suited to lessen the burden of scoring goals and participate in a variety of situations.

In the match against Daejeon on this day, Seungwoo Lee scored the winning goal that gave the team victory. Unlike the situation in the first half of the year when the promotion playoffs were likely, Suwon FC, currently narrowed to 5 points behind Jeju in 9th place, gave the green light to remain in K League 1 for the 3rd consecutive season.
