On March 9th, we will witness a match between Suwon Bluewings and Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in the 2nd round of K1 League. The fixture will take place at Suwon World Cup Stadium, the home of Bluewings.
Suwon Bluewings come into this match after a defeat in the opening match of the season against Ulsan Hyundai (2:1). The match started with a dominant performance from Ulsan Hyundai in the first half when they held the ball for 53% of the time, produced 7 goal attempts and 7 shots on goal. On the other side, Suwon Bluewings only managed to produce 2 goal attempts and 1 shot on goal. Despite 7 shots on goal from Ulsan Hyundai, the only goal they scored came from a penalty in the 12th minute. As for the 2nd half, Suwon Bluewings performed much better, with 7 goal attempts and 5 shots on goal, while Ulsan had only 4 goal attempts and 3 shots on goal. However, Suwon Bluewings managed to produce only one goal, which was just enough to reduce the gap to 2:1 after Ulsan score their 2nd in the 55th minute. Suwon Bluewings pushed for an equalizer for the remaining 30 minutes but failed to find their way to the net. Final score: 2:1.
The visiting side, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors travel to Suwon World Cup Stadium after a shock result in the first round, when they only managed to grab a point from Daegu. In that match, Jeonbuk were the dominant side with 56% ball possession, 14 goal attempts and 7 shots on goal, while Daegu only managed to produce 8 goal attempts and 4 shots on goal. We did expect Jeonbuk to go on and win the match, but it could have easily ended the other way round when Daegu shot a dangerous free kick in the 2nd half. All in all, it was an exciting match, which ended in only 1 point for the home side, who will look for the first win of the season tonight against Suwon Bluewings.
Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors are known to be a deadly team in the offensive end, which is why the final result will come down to what backline Suwon Bluewings will set up to defend the goal. Lee Lim-saeng decided on a strange formation for the season opener, putting two full backs in the centre of defence and giving Goo Dae-yong debut chance despite only playing a few games in K2 league last season. This proved to be a mistake from the head coach of Suwon Bluewings, who saw his team conceding 2 goals against Ulsan. Despite that, Suwon Bluewings have got a strong attack themselves, which was most notable in the 2nd half, when they dominated Ulsan. If they can produce anything similar today, I would not be surprised if they manage to upset the visitors. While Jeonbuk comes into this match as defending champions, they were not too convincing in their recent fixture against Dengu. This time out I expect them to prove their worth against Suwon Bluewings in a match that can easily end in at least 3 goals.
