Seoul, who have scored seven goals in a game, and Incheon, who have been ‘unbeaten’ of late, will meet for the third time this season.
FC Seoul and Incheon United will meet in the 24th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 22 at Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Seoul is third in the league with 37 points (10 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses), while Incheon is ninth with 20 points (7 wins, 9 draws and 7 losses).
Seoul welcomed Suwon FC to their home turf on April 12 and showed off their firepower, scoring a whopping seven goals. While Seoul’s spirits were high after sacrificing Suwon FC, they were somewhat subdued in a 1-1 draw away to Gangwon FC on the 15th.
With Hwang Eui-jo returning to his native club Nottingham Forest, Seoul needed a new goal scorer, and Kim Shin-jin’s goal in the last match against Suwon FC was the biggest gain. Kim had only scored one goal this season prior to that game, but he seemed to find his groove when he started against Suwon and got a taste of scoring.
After the game against Suwon, Kim revealed his secret, saying, “If I’m given a task in any position, I try to fulfill my role as much as possible in that position.”
Although he was silent again in the match against Gangwon, Kim Shin-jin showed a different sparkle than before.
Incheon, which made a splash by re-signing Stephane Mugosa on June 10, has continued its good vibes on the field. They haven’t lost in four official matches since their 3-2 FA Cup victory over Suwon Samseong on June 28.
On June 12, they swept aside league leaders Ulsan Hyundai at home, giving them a confidence boost.
Although Mugosa’s return to the pitch is likely to take some time, the front line of Hernandez, Gerso, and Kim Bo-Seop have been consistently scoring goals to keep the team in the game. 스포츠토토
