Daegu FC’s home stadium, DGB Daegu Bank Park, would be perfect if only the away fans could fill the seats.
Daegu will play Jeju United in the 28th round of the Howonkyo K League 1 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park in Daegu at 7 p.m. on April 26.
Daegu returns home after a 2-2 draw against FC Seoul in the previous round. With six games remaining in the regular round, Daegu is currently in eighth place (35 points). Only two points separate them from sixth-place Incheon United. They need to win against Jeju to move up in the tight mid-table battle.
Daegu, who are winless in their last six matches, have a lot of good memories with Jeju. While the overall record is a bit inferior at 14 wins, 16 draws, and 19 losses, the last five matches have been favorable with two wins and three draws. In the first meeting of the season on March 4, a goal from Vassellus earned a 1-1 draw. In the rematch on July 7, they won 2-1 with goals from Hong Chul and Jang Jang-won.
The experience of the veterans has been a great strength for the team in times of crisis. Lee Geun-ho, the eldest brother, scored his 80th career K League goal against Seoul, his first in four games, following a goal against Gwangju FC in Round 23. Captain Se Jing-ya added an assist on the day, giving him 50 points and 50 assists in K League 1 alone for the first time since the introduction of the relegation system.
Jeju lost 0-1 at Suwon Samsung Electronics. For both Daegu and Jeju, a win in this round is crucial to jump up the standings. It’s all about getting the three points.토스카지노
Meanwhile, Jeju’s home game against Daegu was sold out at 6 p.m., just four hours after general ticket sales began, except for the away section. Daegu organized various events on the day, including the midfielder Lee Yong-rae-themed “Lee Yong-rae Day” and the “SAVE the Sky with DGB Daegu Bank Day”.
