Find out the points to watch for the 35th round of K League 1. □ Match of Rounds – In the 35th round of
the tough Final B battle ‘Gangwon VS Jeju’, Gangwon and Jeju meet in a tough Final B battle. The home team, Gangwon, has been winless (2 draws, 2 losses) in the last 4 consecutive games and is only 1 point behind last place Suwon. Therefore, in order for Gangwon to avoid direct relegation, all remaining final round games must be played like the finals. Gangwon’s biggest problem is their poor scoring ability. Gangwon had scored only 26 goals through the 34th round and had 14 scoreless games. As for the foreign players, Gabriel and Gallego scored only 2 goals each and Yago only 1 goal, but for Gangwon to rebound in the remaining games, the foreign players need to step up. The away team, Jeju, defeated Suwon 2-0 in the previous round of 34, earning acting coach Jeong Jo-guk’s first win since taking office. Jeju smiled for the first time in a long time, breaking a 7-game winless streak (1 draw, 6 losses) along with a 4-game losing streak with this victory. In addition, Jeju’s recent return of injured players such as Choi Young-jun and Jeong Woon is also good news. Jeju, who ignited a spark of hope in the important first game of the final round, will continue their winning streak in this game against Gangwon and challenge for early retention in K League 1. Meanwhile, Jeju’s record against both teams this season is ahead with 1 win and 2 draws. This match between Gangwon and Jeju, who are aiming to survive in K League 1, will be held at Gangneung Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 28th (Sat).
□ Team of Rounds – Ulsan aims to secure early victory
In the 35th round, if second-place Pohang loses to Jeonbuk and leader Ulsan wins against Daegu, Ulsan’s championship will be confirmed regardless of the remaining games. Ulsan secured an early win by defeating Gangwon in the 37th round last year, and is attempting to win early this year for the second year in a row.
Ulsan has never relinquished its lead position throughout the season, but recently showed signs of stagnation with 3 consecutive league games without a goal and no wins (2 draws and 1 loss). However, thanks to the points earned through overwhelming performance in the first half of the year, Ulsan is 8 points ahead of second-place Pohang, so it is still advantageous to win the championship. In addition, Ulsan defeated Johor 3-1 in the third game of the ACL group stage held in midweek, achieving a multi-goal victory for the first time in a long time. Rubikson and Jeong Seung-hyun, who scored multiple goals in the game on this day, also scored for the first time in a long time.
Ulsan, who has regained confidence with a win after a long time, is facing Daegu. Ulsan has the upper hand over Daegu this season with 2 wins and 1 draw, so they will definitely aim for a win and a championship in this game.
The match between Ulsan and Daegu will be held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium at 2pm on the 29th (Sunday).
□ Player of the Round – Speed that doesn’t rust, Kim In-seong (Pohang)
Pohang Kim In-seong boasts tireless stamina and speed that doesn’t rust even at the age of 34. Kim In-seong moved to Pohang this season and recorded 1 goal and 1 assist in 31 league games. Although he has few attack points, he frequently creates flashing opportunities using his quick feet in each game.토토사이트
Kim In-seong’s performance this season stands out even more in the ACL. Kim In-seong contributed to victory in both games by scoring multiple goals in the first match against Hanoi in the ACL group stage last September and one assist in the third match against Urawa in the ACL group stage held midweek. In particular, in a situation where Pohang’s starting wingers such as Wandelsson and Baek Sung-dong have recently left due to injury, Kim In-seong’s performance is a great addition to the team’s strength. Thanks to this, Pohang is on a winning streak, having won three consecutive ACL games, the only K-League team competing in the ACL this season.
Meanwhile, Pohang meets Jeonbuk in this round. Pohang has good memories of winning three games against Jeonbuk this season. The match between Pohang and Jeonbuk will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 2pm on the 28th (Saturday).
