Daejeon Hana Citizen’s home stadium is gradually becoming a ‘fortress’.
Daejeon Hana Citizen, led by coach Lee Min-seong, is ranked 3rd with a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss (14 points) in 7 matches of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’. It is a fierce blast from the promoted team. Stronger at home. Since the 35th round of last season, they have been undefeated in 10 matches (7 wins and 3 draws). Daejeon went undefeated in 23 matches (16 wins and 7 draws) in 2021 as well. It is tied for first place in this category with Ulsan Hyundai.
The secret to Daejeon’s reign as the ‘home absolute strong’ is by far its performance. Coach Lee said, “Even if we lose, we have to go out of the house and show a close fight.” Active attacks do not discriminate against opponents. In fact, Daejeon shouted ‘attack forward’ even in the confrontation with Ulsan on the 16th. It was never an easy decision. Ulsan is the defending champion and a strong team that is overwhelmingly in the first round this season. However, Daejeon also played attacking football against Ulsan. Daejeon exploded the opening goal in the 9th minute of the game. He fired 10 shots on the day and made 4 effective shots. Two of these shots scored goals, receiving applause from the fans. Daejeon completed a 2-1 victory over Ulsan. Daejeon showed off its superpowers by catching FC Seoul (3-2) and Ulsan line by line at home with hot attacking football this season.
The power that players can play without getting tired at home comes from the support of the fans. Lee Hyun-sik said, “I can hear the cheers of the fans during the game. Many fans come. I wonder if more fans will come if I bring good results and good game contents. 안전놀이터
The average home crowd for Daejeon this season is 14,851. It ranks third in this category following Seoul (29,253) and Ulsan (19,483). The atmosphere created by Daejeon fans is overwhelming. “Daejeon is a particularly difficult place to play away,” said Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo. Officials from other clubs who watched the match between Daejeon and Ulsan on the spot also said, “I don’t think it will be easy to play in Daejeon in the future. The atmosphere is perfect.”
Coach Lee said, “With the K-League 1 coming up, a lot of fans come because the results are supported. We have to keep making it with a sense of responsibility. I think that way we can not fall behind Ulsan, FC Seoul, and Jeonbuk Hyundai.”
