Half of the season has passed, but the difference between 3rd and 9th place is only 7 points, K-League 1 in the middle of chaos

The K-League 1 mid-ranking, which became especially thick this season, fell into more chaos even after the middle of the season.

In the current ranking of Hana 1 Q K League 1, which has been played through the 23rd round, Ulsan Hyundai is running first with 53 points, while Pohang Steelers are running in second place with 41 points, 12 points behind.

And from 3rd place FC Seoul (37 points), an extremely thick middle rank was formed. The difference between Seoul and 9th place Incheon United (30 points) is only 7 points. In particular, 5th place Daegu FC (33 points) is only 3 points behind Incheon, so there is a possibility that the leaderboard will fluctuate greatly depending on the results of each game.

The reasons why the middle rank has become so thick can be attributed to the unexpected promotion of the promoted team and the momentum of Incheon and Jeonbuk Hyundai, which are finally starting to come back to life.

Gwangju FC (31 points) and Daejeon Hana Citizen (30 points), which were promoted to K-League 1 this year, are ranked 6th and 7th, respectively. Compared to the tremendous momentum at the beginning of the season, it seems that the blast has subsided somewhat, but it can be seen that it is more than expected that they are aiming to enter the Final A, let alone the relegation zone, even now beyond the middle.

The rising trend of Incheon and Jeonbuk cannot be taken lightly. Incheon recorded 3 wins and 1 draw in 4 games played in July, sweeping 10 points and succeeding in entering the mid-table in an instant. The offense, which has been a constant problem, is showing signs of a rebound recently, and the defense has improved significantly. Here, Mugosa, who returned to the team after a year, seems to be able to play after the All-Star break in July, so it seems that he has finally regained his status as a ‘dark horse’ before the start of the season.

Jeonbuk also fell to the relegation zone at the beginning of the season and showed disastrous performance that was not like a championship candidate, but now they have completely succeeded in transforming themselves. After coach Kim Sang-sik stepped down and Kim Doo-hyun took over as acting coach, they found stability. While the solid defense, which ranks first in terms of minimum goals, is in good health, the offensive power is gradually returning to its original position. However, with Cho Kyu-sung’s advance into the European stage, there is a gap in the attacking line again, and I am worried about how to solve it.안전놀이터추천

Round 24, the last game before the All-Star break, draws attention as there are several matchups between these mid-table teams. In particular, matches between Seoul-Incheon and Daegu-Daejeon can cause major changes in the rankings depending on the results. Until the end of the season, the mid-table battle is expected to develop hotly.
