Suwon Bluewings vs Daegu FC
After playing games away from home, the Suwon Bluewings will be looking for some home comfort as they host Daegu FC as part of this weekend’s slate of games here in the K-League.
These two teams are facing different situations coming into August. But the objective remains the same for these two – which is to try and grab the three big points with a victory.
A win here for Daegu can propel them to as high as the top-three spot. As of this writing, the citizen club has 22 points and are placed fifth in the K-League.
Go down a couple of notches and you’ll see the Suwon Bluewings, as they are placed ninth with 13 points. A victory on their end will help them avoid any threats of being relegated.
In the last time that they met over a month ago, Daegu FC walloped the Suwon Bluewings at home with a 3-1 victory. Cesinha and Dejan Damjanovic poured in the late goals which sealed the comeback after trailing in the first half.
It was a disappointing loss for Suwon and they will be keen on not repeating the same story this time around.
SBOBET offers you a preview ahead of this match.
Suwon Bluewings aim to take flight
After experiencing a tough winless stretch, Lee Lim-saeng’s men will be keen on turning a new page in order to place higher in the table.
But in order to do so, Suwon would need to address their issues on the pitch, and one of them is their lacklustre attacking prowess.
It doesn’t help when their star in Adam Taggart has had his bout of struggles so far this season. The 27-year-old Australian has only punched in four goals after 13 matchdays, and that is not a good sign if you are coach Lee Lim-saeng.
The veteran manager would need to draw significant contributions and goals from the likes of Sulejman Krpic and Terry Antonis, considering they were highly-touted signings during the offseason.
They are the third-lowest scoring team in the league with only 13 goals and they are the fifth-worst in giving up goals with 16 already.
To cut the long story short, drastic changes need to occur in order for the Bluewings to turn their fortunes around.
Daegu FC looking recharged
The citizen club have had their share of injuries, which is why it’s commendable on their part that they’ve hung on to the fifth spot at the K-League standings.
Cesinha and Dejan Damjanovic have held the fort for Daegu FC as they’ve combined for 13 goals so far this term, while the likes of Kim Dong-jin and Ryu Jae-moon have filled in nicely too.
Now after almost a week of rest, Daegu FC are ready to get back to winning ways with their rested roster.
While Hong Jeong-woon and Edgar expected to be out indefinitely, the citizen club will get back Nishi Tsubasa who is done serving his suspension.
Kim Woo-seok and Hwang Soon-min, who were experiencing some lingering issues, might be given a chance to regain their starting XI spots since their maladies apparently aren’t that serious. Expect these two to be in full strength should they be inserted into the lineup this weekend.
This is good news if you are team boss Lee Byunggeun as he will have a deeper roster at his disposal.
The Suwon Bluewings and Daegu FC have faced off in 22 matches already.
Suwon surprisingly dominate this head-to-head matchup with 14 wins while Daegu won only three times along with five draws.
Two of those draws happened back in April and May 2019 where both teams didn’t score a single goal.
Goals come in at a decent rate when these two face off, as they’ve averaged 2.4 goals between them per contest.
