Professional volleyball V-League Men’s Division Korean Air and Hyundai Capital will face off against fate that cannot be backed down for the first place in the regular league.
The two teams will face off in the 6th round of the professional volleyball Dodram 2022-23 V-League Men’s Division at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium at 2 pm on the 5th.
The confrontation between Korean Air, which currently ranks first in the regular league, and Hyundai Capital, which ranks second, can be called a preliminary championship match. Korean Air is in the lead with 68 points (23 wins, 9 losses), but Hyundai Capital (66 points, 22 wins, 10 losses) can rise to the top depending on the game results.
If Hyundai Capital wins with a set score of 3-0 or 3-1, they will rise to the top. If they win with a set score of 3-2, they cannot take the lead, but they can press Korean Air until the end of the regular season.
This season’s men’s volleyball seemed to end in a bland way as Korean Air, which is trying to win its third consecutive championship, formed a solid solo system until the 4th round. However, as Korean Air suffered 4 consecutive losses, starting with KB Insurance on January 24, Hyundai Capital started a fierce pursuit.
On the 21st of last month, Hyundai Capital took the lead for the first time this season, but returned to the second place in one day with the victory of Korean Air the next day.
Korean Air, whose leading position was in jeopardy, is on the upswing again with three consecutive victories and will take the lead against Hyundai Capital at home.
Hyundai Capital, which is accelerating its pursuit of Korean Air, goes on an expedition with a physical disadvantage.
From the standpoint of Hyundai Capital, the classic match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance held on the 2nd was somewhat disappointing. At that time, they won at home with a set score of 3-2, but it was a bloody battle of 154 minutes. In the process of dramatically overturning the match after being pushed back by a set score of 1-2 and on the verge of defeat, the players’ physical strength was not small.
Although they won all 6 matches against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance this season, they were the only ones to concede points by playing full sets in close matches. As a result, the difference between Korean Air and Korean Air was 2 instead of 1. 메이저놀이터
Hyundai Capital played the game a day later than Korean Air against KEPCO on the 1st, so there is relatively little time to recover.
On the other hand, Korean Air, which is challenging for a 4-game winning streak at home, can further increase the possibility of a 3-game losing streak as it will take a step closer to the top spot in the regular league if it wins today.
Meanwhile, in the face-to-face match between the two teams this season, Korean Air has an overwhelming advantage with 4 wins and 1 loss. However, in the most recent confrontation (February 10), Hyundai Capital won and plunged Korean Air into a four-game losing streak.
