8 to 9 games are left for each team. The direction of winning the K League 2 (second division) is still unclear. While Busan I-Park (53 points) and Gimcheon Sangmu (52 points) are competing, Busan is more likely to win as the season progresses.
Busan beat FC Anyang 1-0 on the 3rd to reach the top of the K League 2 and entered the international break in September, and Busan ranked first in 57 days since July 8.
Busan is getting stronger as the game progresses. Under the leadership of “technician” Lim Min-hyuk, strikers such as Sung Ho-young, Kim Dongjin Park, Ramas, and Kim Jung-hwan are reviving. Above all, the lease of center back Min Sang-ki at Suwon Samsung this summer is becoming a “god’s move.” Lee Han also upgraded the three-back to the next level with Choi Ji-mook. Watertight defense is proven by numbers. Busan has allowed only five goals in eight games since Min Sang-ki was deployed against Anyang on July 20. It was five games without losing a point.
The variable is right wingback Choi Jun’s selection for the Hangzhou Asian Games. Choi Jun is a starting resource who played in 27 of the team’s 28 games and scored 1 goal and 4 assists, but Choi Jun, who was selected for the Asian Games national team led by Hwang Sun-hong, will leave for Hangzhou, China on the 16th. Backup Park Se-jin will be deployed starting with the match against Seongnam on the 16th.
The power leakage variable is the same in Gimcheon. On this 31st round rest day, Gimcheon’s ‘signature goal scorer’ Cho Young-wook was called up to the Asian Games national team and will miss 4 games. Gimcheon is in dire need of a turnaround as they lost 0-2 to Busan in the last two games and lost 1st place to Busan by drawing 0-0 with Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province, but the empty spot for Cho Young-wook, the second-highest scorer in K League 2, is bound to seem big. does not exist.
On the 17th, attention is focused on the Bucheon-Gimpo match. The two teams are tied with 48 points, but Bucheon ranks third ahead in terms of multiple goals (37 goals for Bucheon, 33 goals for Gimpo). The winner of this game can get one step closer to the K League 2 playoffs (PO). It is a game worth ‘6 points’. This season, Bucheon is ahead with 1 win and 1 draw.
