Preview: Suwon FC vs Seoul E-Land

After a lengthy international break, the 2019 K League 2 resumes to play out the last four games of the regular season. Seoul E-Land will make the short trip to face Suwon FC in what will be the last second division super match of 2019. Can Seoul get out of this rut finally? Or will it be more of the mundane same for the Capital club?

Last Time Out

Seoul E-Land made the journey to Ansan after failing to win in seven games. The Greeners themselves were looking for a revival, after failing to win in five. Ansan was still hopeful to be in the playoff positions come November and flew out of the blocks in the game. It took them the dying moments of the first half to take the lead. Gustavo Vintecinco with the header to make it 1-0. The Brazilian forward was lucky to actually be on the pitch, due to earlier in the tie, he took an elbow to Kim Tae-hyun. In another game, this may have resulted in a straight red. However, after VAR, a yellow was awarded.

Ansan's second came in the 58th minute, with another header in the game. Seoul E-Land once again could not deal with any aerial balls, and Kim Dae-yeol punished the Leopards. Seoul could not retaliate, and another stale performance from E-Land saw their eighth game without a win.

Suwon had no easy task in the last round, as they faced off against second-place Busan IPark. Suwon never really got into the game, and it took the home side nine minutes to make an impact. After a long throw into Kim Jin-gyu left the Korean with yards of space in the box. He crossed the ball over for Lee Jeong-hyeop to tap the ball into the net. It was not all good news for Busan, as Australian Aleksandar Šušnjar was shown a straight red on the half-hour mark. VAR determined an intentional elbow on Suwon's Yoon Jun-sung.

Despite ten men, Busan kept pushing for a second goal, and it game in injury time of the first half. After Park Yo-han took down Lee Dong-jun, and the referee pointed to the spot. Rômulo converted from the penalty spot, and Busan doubled their lead.  Suwon tried to get back into the game in the second half, but they just could not beat Choi Pil-soo. Multiple chances came and went, and Busan's number one stood tall.

Previous Meetings

The last times the two sides met, were on better terms for Seoul E-Land. The occasion came in the middle of their four-game winning streak, and they were once more playing back home in Jamsil. It wasn't all good for Seoul however, as Egbuchunam scored early for Suwon.  Seoul did respond only six minutes later in the game. A fantastic run from Won Ki-jong, and a pass to Kim Mink-yun, saw it all level in the 18th minute.

After a tense second half, where both teams could of won the tie. Up stepped Lee Tae-ho in the 88th minute, with a cruising header to win the game for Seoul. The defender had an excellent game at the back and shown how he can come up with the goods when asked.

Team News

A noticeable absence from the Leopards squad in the last round was number one Kim Youn-kwang. It was Kang Jeon-munk who was selected between the sticks against Ansan. It was once again, only Duarte who featured for the foreign players in the side. However, there is a rumour that Wesley Alex may return for the game against Suwon. Woo Sung-yong will be at odds with himself at the moment. No formation change or change of player is working for the Leopards, and may no result in using 3-4-3 once more against Suwon on Sunday.

Suwon will rely once more on Egbuchunam, who has been their main man this year. Apart from that though, Suwon will be without a few key players. Park Yo-han and Lee Hak-min are suspended due to a number of yellow cards. The two absentees could see a patched up Suwon defence.

The Adversary

Suwon FC will be looking to claim all three points against Seoul on the weekend. A side who at one point, were contenders to end in the top five, they soon have slipped down the table. Now level on points with Bucheon 1995. If they fail to win on the weekend, they may drop down to the eighth position.

Suwon have had a mediocre campaign in the 2019 K League 2, can they change their fortunes on Sunday against Seoul E-Land? 
A side who have underwhelmed this year, considering that they have been trying to get back into the K League 1 ever since their relegation. Suwon have got a draw and a win over Seoul this year and will look to take that in the fourth tie between the two.


An unpredictable affair will come on Sunday between these two. Suwon have been lacking composure since summer, and we all know how poorly Seoul have been once again. Suwon will look to claim back some dignity in the league. Whereas Seoul E-Land will still look to catch up to Daejeon Citizen, a team they play a week later. If Seoul can pick up the win, and Deajeon fail to do so, there would be one point separating the two.
