Daegu FC earned a ‘click-clack’ victory over Suwon FC.
Daegu FC won 3-1 at home against Suwon FC in the 18th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 at DGB Daegu Bank Park at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, thanks to consecutive goals from Vaselos, Sejingya, and Hwang Jae-won.
On the day, Daegu head coach Choi Won-kwon made a change by benching ‘ace’ Go Jae-hyun and starting Brazilian striker Vassellus. It was a rotation that took into account the fatigue of the midweek game and a vote of confidence in Vaselus.
When asked about Vaselus in the last home game against Seoul, Choi said, “Vaselus asked for a meeting and expressed his desire to start. When asked if he was better than the existing starters, he couldn’t answer straightforwardly. We’ll see how he performs against Seoul and decide whether to give him a chance to start against Jeonbuk and Suwon.” For the home game against Suwon before the A-League break, Choi finally chose Vaselus as his starter, and instead of the trio of Sejingya, Edgar, and Jae-hyun, he went with the Brazilian trio of Sedbar.
After missing a few crucial chances in the first half, including a one-on-one, Choi didn’t change his mind in the second half, and Vassellus finally repaid his faith. Four minutes into the second half, Vassellus scored a left-footed goal, his second of the season and first field goal. Shortly after Hwang Jae-won’s throw-in, Lee Jin-yong’s sharp long cross was flicked onto the chest by Edgar, and Vassellus didn’t miss his third chance. He took it with his left foot and threw his arms around the neck of coach Choi Won-kwon on the bench in wild celebration after the low ball rattled the net. Daegu took a 1-0 lead.
Suwon fought back, however, and Yoon Beom-garam’s flying shot narrowly missed the target. In the 19th minute of the second half, Daegu substituted Go Jae-hyun for Vassellus and Keita for Hong Chul to stabilize the defense. In the 24th minute, Cho Jin-woo’s header grazed the side of the goal, denying Daegu a second goal. In the 30th minute, Sejingya’s powerful shot was narrowly saved by Suwon goalkeeper Park Bae-jong.
In the 31st minute of the second half, Suwon’s Lee Seung-woo struck again. After receiving a header pass from Ras, Lee cleverly folded in the box and rattled the Daegu goal with his right foot. Lee celebrated his second goal of the season by beating Rath to the ball.
Suwon showed their intentions to fight back by bringing on Jung Jae-yong in place of Lee Seung-woo in the 35th minute. War of attrition. In the 37th minute, Suwon stormed back after a corner kick, and Go Jae-hyun’s right-footed shot from Sejingya’s pass went wide to the left of the goal. In the 38th minute, Daegu substituted Jang Jang-won for Lee Jin-yong as a wingback. In the 39th minute, Yoon Beom-garam’s shot at the far post went wide.
In the 44th minute of the second half, the King of Daegu, Sejingya, scored the winning goal. After a cross from Hwang Jae-won on “Hwang Jae-won Day,” Sejingya soared and headed the ball into the net. Immediately after the thrilling goal, the King of Daegu performed a hot ceremony in front of a full house. It was a fierce battle for the entire 90 minutes, with Edgar and Jackson bleeding from a fight for an aerial ball just before the end, but Daegu won. In second-half stoppage time, Sejingya sent a kill pass to Hwang Jae-won in the center of the box after a solo run, and Hwang’s shot deflected off the Suwon defense and into the net. Hwang Jae-won’s first goal of the season. He shared a goal and an assist with Sejingya to seal the 3-1 victory 스포츠토토.
On this day, Daepak had a home crowd of 11,457 fans. All seats were sold out except for the away seats in Suwon. In front of a full house, Daegu’s powerful counterattack soccer, ‘Click Soccer’, which loses possession but does not miss a goal, worked on this day. ‘Click soccer’, which has become a hot topic in the soccer game community, is a nickname for Daegu soccer that is popular among K League fans these days. Daegu’s unique counterattack soccer, which destroys opponents with the click of a button against a million tactics such as buildup, line adjustment, forward pressure, and set pieces, was on display on this day as well, as Daegu took the three points with a neat goal from Edgar and Vasellus, a storming header from Sejingya following a straight cross from Hwang Jae-won, and a wedge goal from Hwang Jae-won following Sejingya’s sprint and dedicated pass. True to Choi’s promise after the Seoul game, “I think we’re saying ‘click’ because we only scored one goal, but we’ll make it ‘click, click, click, click,'” the three-goal barrage lifted the team back to fifth place with 27 points from four home games (two wins and two draws).
