Two defeats this year – 11 years without a win ‘bleak’
Direct relegation ‘cliff edge’ desperate for points
‘Last place’ Gangwon FC will be looking for three points against leaders Ulsan Hyundai.
Gangwon FC will host Ulsan Hyundai in the 26th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at 7:30 p.m. on April 12 at Gangneung Sports Complex.
It is a match between the leaders and the last place. Ulsan is currently in first place with 57 points (18 W, 3 D, 4 L), while Gangwon is in 12th place with 17 points (2 W, 11 D, 12 L). Currently, Gangwon is in a fierce battle with 11th-ranked Suwon Samsung for direct relegation. Suwon, which beat Gangwon on March 22 to escape the bottom of the table for the first time in three months, is just one point behind Gangwon with 18 points. With a nine-point lead on goal difference, Kangwon needs three points against Ulsan to stay in the race. However, it’s hard to see Gangwon winning. Kangwon has faced Ulsan twice this year, losing twice (no goals scored and two conceded). It’s a nemesis. Kangwon holds a 2-5-2 record against Ulsan in the all-time series, with a 25-match winless streak (4 draws and 21 losses) stretching back 11 years since a 2-1 victory on May 26, 2012.바카라사이트
Meanwhile, Gangwon has prepared a variety of events to kick off its three-game home stand against Ulsan. The game will be kicked off with a ceremonial start by Pyeongchang Olympic curling medalist Team Kim from Gangneung City Hall. Starting from this game, the team will operate variable seats in the cheering section (N seats) of Gangneung Sports Complex. This is a measure to further enhance the atmosphere of the home stadium in response to the growing number of spectators in Gangneung. The variable seats in the general seat (E) section will be installed in September.
