‘Perfect atmosphere’ Gwangju looks to extend winning streak to four with win over Suwon Samsung

Gwangju FC, which has been on an unbeaten streak this season, will be looking for a double when it hosts Suwon Samsung.

Gwangju FC will host the Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the 17th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Gwangju Football Stadium at 7 p.m. on April 7.

The moods of the two teams are polar opposites. Gwangju have found their best form, most notably in the last round when they welcomed the ‘nemesis’ Pohang Steelers to their stadium for a thrilling 4-2 win thanks to goals from Doo Hyun-seok, Uhm Ji-sung, and Ahn Young-gyu, along with an own goal.

Three wins in a row and unbeaten in four matches, including the FA Cup. Gwangju’s hot streak continues as they were named the best team for the second consecutive round. With their confidence and spirits soaring, Gwangju are determined to keep the momentum going with a win in their home series.

The goal came from a variety of sources. From a corner kick, Asani’s sharp cross forced the opponent into a self-correction, while fullback Doo Hyun-seok’s aggressive overlapping and fantastic winding kick helped the team turn the tide. The team’s ace Uhm Ji-sung also broke his long silence to score a goal, boosting confidence, while captain Ahn Young-gyu has been on fire in the last three games, scoring two goals and one assist from set pieces alone.

The same goes for the defense. Timo has been a stalwart alongside Ahn Young-gyu, while the midfield of Lee Sun-min and Jung Ho-yeon have been active and diligent defenders.

Their opponent, Suwon, is a traditional powerhouse in the K League and has a top-notch squad. In addition to veteran Yi Ki-hoon, they have a number of outstanding players in defense, including Kim Bo-kyung, Lee Ki-je, Ahn Byung-joon, Jung Seung-won, Ko Seung-beom, and Choi Sung-geun. However, despite their reputation, Suwon are currently in a slump. With two wins, two draws, and 12 losses, the team has lost three straight games and hasn’t been able to climb out of the bottom of the table. Gwangju won their opening match of the season.안전놀이터

Against a low-confidence Suwon side, Gwangju will be looking to press hard from the start and try to get a goal. However, they must not let their guard down. Suwon Samsung can raise their game at any time.

It will be interesting to see if Lee Jung-hyo’s tactics work against Suwon and if Gwangju can make it four wins in a row.
