Daegu, on the other hand, used Sejingya, Edgar, and Ko Jae-hyun in the second half in a partial rotation, but failed to win.메이저사이트

Suwon opened the scoring in the first minute with a mid-range shot from Lee Jong-sung. Suwon then proceeded to attack cautiously. Daegu’s defense didn’t break down easily either. Daegu tried to attack from the flanks using Vasellus and Lee Geun-ho. However, Vasellus, Lee Geun-ho, and Kim Young-joon were not in sync.

In the 26th minute, Suwon scored the first goal. Kim Bo-kyung attacked the left flank of Dae-gu. He then sent in a cross with his right foot that Kim Joo-chan jumped on and slid in with his right foot to shake the Daegu goal.

Suwon brought on Jung Seung-won for Lee Kyu-seok at the start of the second half. In the third minute of the second half, Kim Joo-chan broke down the left flank and crossed to Yoo Je-ho for Lee Jong-sung’s right-footed shot, which was saved by Daegu goalkeeper Oh Seung-hoon. Suwon continued to dominate possession and control the game. Daegu was disappointed with their attacking options in the midfield.

Eventually, Daegu took off Lee Geun-ho in the 16th minute of the second half and introduced Sejingya. Daegu deployed Sejingya in the front line and raised the level of offense. Suwon brought on Jeon Jin-woo in the 26th minute of the second half to change their attack. Daegu also added Edgar after Ko Jae-hyun. In the 37th minute, Sejingya’s free kick from right in front of the penalty box hit a Suwon defender and deflected off the post. Daegu was unable to find the equalizer in the end.
