Incheon United host Suwon Bluewings in a must win midtable battle on Saturday

remove_image

Suwon Bluewings make the short trip north to face fellow midtable side Incheon United on Saturday evening. Incheon desperately need a result here to fight off a possible slip into the relegation battle. Whilst Suwon Bluewings will be looking to jump back into champions league qualification contention.

Recent Form

Starting with the hosts Incheon United, their recent form as been to poor it bluntly awful. They have lost four and drawn one from their last five, and have failed to score in their last three. They created little last weekend against reigning champions Jeonbuk, whilst there single point against FC Seoul was aided by some kind VAR decisions.

Moving over to the visitors Suwon Bluewings who like Incheon are also on a poor run as of late. They have just a single win in all competitions from their last thirteen. They lost during the super match last weekend to a struggling FC Seoul by two goals to nil, further highlighting their current issues on the field.


What to Watch

Incheon United this season had been more confident in front of goal before the Summer break. That was thanks to star striker Stefan Mugosa, who has nine goals in fifteen appearances this season. However his danger is well known and opposing sides don't allow him an inch. Midfielders Elias Aguilar as well as Brazilian Negueba have been key creators, with a combined nine assists so far this season.
 
Taking a quick look at the Incheon back line which can be tough to predict. Keeper Lee Tae-hui has regained his status as first choice keeper, but has been let down by his defence in the past few games. Harrison Delbridge is the only defensive regular under thirty highlighting the experience that the Incheon defence brings to the table.

Now looking at the visitors Suwon Bluewings and their attacking options. Jeong Sang-Bin may only be nineteen but is currently Suwon Bluewings joint top scorer and could be a vital asset in the years to come. Also watch for defender Lee Ki-je who has popped up to score five goals so far this season.

Defensively Suwon Bluewings can struggle to hold on for the entire ninety. This issue will be put to the test on Saturday as they'll be without suspended Jang Ho-ik who has been their standout player at the back so far this season. Between the posts Yang Hyung-mo will be tasked with keeping the likes of Stefan Mugosa and co at bay.

Who to Watch

 

Costa Rican International Elias Aguilar is enjoying his third season with Incheon United and fourth in the K League overall. Prior to this season he wasn't known as a goal scorer but he's doubled his overall Incheon tally but scoring five times during 2021. However it's his set-pieces and creative ideas that Incheon fans love and are effective in helping Incheon push away from another relegation battle and into the relative safety of the K League 1 midtable. He'll be key on Saturday, but expect his talent to come off the bench.
