The rise of the professional football K-League 1 Daejeon Hana Citizen is unusual.
Daejeon won 2-1 against Ulsan in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 7 home game held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 16th. With this, Daejeon, which recorded 14 points (4 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss), rose to third place, beating FC Seoul.
Not many expected that this season’s K-League 1 promoted team Daejeon would defeat the leader Ulsan, who was running for 6 consecutive wins in the opening season.
However, there was a corner where Daejeon also believed. It’s the home win rate.메이저사이트
Daejeon, which returned to the K-League 1 stage after 8 years this season, is showing a good trend by causing a sensation at the beginning of the season. Especially undefeated at home. There are no losses with 3 wins and 1 draw in the 4 home matches they have had since promotion. After losing 2-3 to FC Anyang in August last year, they have recorded 7 wins and 3 draws in 10 home games.
Ulsan, which was on a six-game winning streak, also suffered a blow at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium. The tie record for the most consecutive wins at the start of the K-League (7 wins) was also shattered. This is the first time Ulsan has scored more than two runs this season.
The result is the result, but the performance of Daejeon was also amazing. Daejeon, which led 2-1 in the first half, attacked Ulsan in the second half. Although they were leading by one goal, they did not drop the line rather than defend, shouting ‘attack forward’ and constantly putting pressure on Ulsan, the leader of the K League 1. Head coach Hong Myung-bo also acknowledged Daejeon’s soccer.
As Daejeon created a sensation with its hot attacking soccer, the number of spectators is also increasing.
On this day, 16,359 spectators entered the Daejeon World Cup Stadium, where the home game against Ulsan was held. In four home games this season, 59,403 spectators visited the Daejeon World Cup Stadium, exceeding the total number of spectators (45,411) Daejeon recorded in the second division last season.
After the 2015 season, it disappeared from the K-League 1 stage for a long time, but in fact, Daejeon was a city that boasted so much enthusiasm for soccer that it was called the “special soccer city.”
As expectations are rising this season, which is the first K-League 1 stage since conversion to a corporate club, many spectators are visiting the stadium for every game. Here, not only the results but also the game performance are capturing the hearts of fans with hot attacking soccer. In particular, the fact that the home game win rate is good is a great help in mobilizing spectators.
The gust of Daejeon at the beginning of the season in the K-League 1 contrasts with the professional baseball Hanwha Eagles. Hanwha, which is also related to Daejeon, is in ninth place at the beginning of this season, announcing a sluggish start.
On the day Daejeon defeated Ulsan, the leader at home, Hanwha, who went on an expedition to Suwon, lost 2-14 after struggling by giving 7 runs to KT in the first inning only.
