After Suwon Samsung was relegated to the second division for the first time in its history, Suwon FC (11th in K League 1) is also in danger of relegation.
If Suwon fails to beat Busan I-Park (2nd place in K League 2) by multiple goals in the second round of the relegation playoffs on the 9th, both professional soccer clubs with Suwon ties will be relegated.
Suwon FC lost 1-2 to home team Busan in the first leg of the 2023 Hana One Q K League Promotion Playoffs at Busan Asiad Stadium on April 6.
Despite taking the lead in the 42nd minute, Suwon conceded two penalties in the second half and were unable to overcome the deficit.
Lee Seung-woo, who has 10 goals and three assists this season, was sent off for accumulating cautions on the day and will not be available for the second leg. 호텔카지노
Busan, which is looking to return to the top flight after a four-year absence, will be promoted to the top flight with a draw in the second leg on Sept. 9 in Suwon.
Since the away goal rule was abolished in the promotion playoffs this year, the team with the higher total score in the first and second legs will be promoted, and if the score is tied, it will go to extra time.
For Suwon FC, they need to win on aggregate to stay in the top flight without extra time, but they are struggling to find a replacement for Lee Seung-woo.
Busan was relegated to the second division for the first time in its history after losing to Suwon FC in the 2015 promotion playoffs.
This time around, Busan has a chance to beat Suwon and move into the first division.
Meanwhile, Gangwon FC (10th in K League 1) and Gimpo FC (3rd in K League 2) are also heading into their final matches for relegation and promotion.
They played to a 0-0 draw in the first leg.
As a result, the second leg at Gangneung Sports Complex at 2 p.m. on Sept. 9 will be the final match to decide promotion and relegation.
