‘ACL ticket competition’ Seoul vs Gwangju, winning streak or revenge?

In the two matches this season, Seoul won against Gwangju,
forming a delicate relationship after coach Lee Jeong-hyo said, “That’s how soccer is played.”

 FC Seoul and Gwangju FC, which are ranked at the top of the rankings, will engage in an unforgettable match for a ticket to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) for the 2024-2025 season.

Seoul and Gwangju will face off in the 30th round of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 2 pm on the 16th.

This is a game in which both teams, who are ranked 3rd and 4th respectively through the 29th round, desperately need 3 points.

As for the home team Seoul, coach Kim Jin-gyu took over as coach after coach Ahn Ik-soo, who had been leading the team a month ago, stepped down after taking responsibility for poor performance. Seoul succeeded in rebounding with one win and one draw under acting coach Kim Jin-gyu.

토토사이트Gwangju, a team that has been promoted to K-League 1 this season by storm, has been in strong form recently.

Gwangju has gone undefeated for 9 consecutive games, ending with a loss (0-1) against Ulsan on July 2, and has risen to 3rd place. In the 29th round match held just before the international break, they defeated leader Ulsan 2-0 away.

The two teams, who are not in a bad mood, will once again face off against each other for third place, where the next season’s ACL ticket is at stake.

In particular, more attention is being paid to the third confrontation between the two teams, who engaged in a subtle war of nerves. Previously, the two teams faced each other in the second round, and Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo’s remarks immediately after the game became controversial.

At that time, the home team Gwangju dominated Seoul in the game, but lost 0-2 after Uhm Um-seong was sent off in the second half.

In response, coach Lee Jeong-hyo made a bombshell remark, saying, “I’m upset that we lost to a team that plays soccer like that.” Coach Lee immediately apologized, but veteran players and fans in Seoul showed signs of discomfort.

Gwangju is doing well this season, but they lost both matches against Seoul this season. The overall record of both teams is 15 wins, 4 draws, and 2 losses, so Seoul is overwhelmingly superior. Gwangju desperately needs a win in this game as they have not won against Seoul for about 6 years since 2017.

Seoul is also aiming for its third consecutive win against Gwangju this season. The difference in points is only 2, so the rankings may change depending on the result of this game, so both teams are motivated enough.
