‘Aiming to turn the tide’, Seoul welcomes Daejeon to go undefeated in Special City Derby
Daejeon Hana Citizen will look to extend their unbeaten streak to three games against FC Seoul this season.
The Daejeon Hana Citizen will host FC Seoul in the 26th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 13th at 7pm.
Daejeon is currently seventh in the league with eight wins, nine draws and eight defeats in 25 matches with 33 points.
Daejeon will be looking to turn things around. In the last round, the team travelled to Gwangju and hoped to gain a foothold in the top half of the table, but failed to do so. With eight games to go before the final round, they will be looking to pick up as many points as possible in their remaining matches to secure a top split.
They hold a one-point advantage over their head-to-head opponents, Seoul, with one win and one draw this season.
In the first match of the season, which was billed as the “Special City Derby” 메이저사이트 between Daejeon and FC Seoul, a club with ties to the South Korean capital, Daejeon won 3-2. Daejeon took the lead through an own goal and back-to-back goals from Cho Yoo-min. Seoul managed to equalise, but were unable to break Daejeon’s momentum. Daejeon scored a thrilling goal in the 43rd minute of the second half to complete their first victory over Seoul in eight years. Daejeon then drew away at Seoul World Cup Stadium in early July to take a point.
This match is also important. With eight games to go, the final round will be played. Currently seventh in the league, Daejeon can qualify for Group A of the final round if they finish in the top six. For that, they need a win against Seoul. A win would close the gap on Seoul to two points. They can also move up to sixth place depending on the results of Daegu and Incheon. We’re in the second half of the season where every game counts, so a win against Seoul will help us rebound.
Meanwhile, the match will be held on ‘Gongju Day’, a day dedicated to Gongju City in hopes of successfully hosting the ‘2023 Daebaekjeon’.
On the occasion of ‘Gongju Day’, Daejeon World Cup Stadium’s Namun Square will host booths promoting major policies and festivals, including the ‘2023 Daebaek Festival’ to be held in September, as well as the Onnuri Princess Citizen System, the Hometown Love Donation System, and the New 5 Provinces and 2 Villages. There will also be a gourmet market selling Gongju’s excellent agricultural specialities such as albam beef and gongju albam. At halftime, Gongju City’s mascot ‘Goma Bear and Princess’ dolls will be given away as prizes through Daejeon Hana Citizen’s official KakaoTalk quiz event.
