Bulthuis, who returned from a slump, leads Suwon’s “Escape from Last Place.”

It was Danbi who came after a long wait of three months. Suwon defender Bultuis scored the winning goal to lead Suwon Samsung to the last place, leading the team to victory.
Suwon beat Jeju United 1-0 in the 27th round of the “Hana One Q K League 1 2023” home game held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on the 18th.

As a result, Suwon, which scored 22 points, surpassed Gangwon (20 points), which played one less game, to rank 11th in the league. 스포츠토토탑

Suwon launched a 4-3-3 formation. Yang Hyung-mo defended the goal and Lee Ki-je, Park Dae-won, Kim Joo-won, and Han Ho-gang formed a defensive line. Ko Seung-beom, Kazuki, and Myung Joon-jae were in the waist, and Kim Joo-chan, Park Hee-joon, and Kim Tae-hwan were in the front.

Jeju went 4-2-4. With Kim Dong-joon wearing goalkeeper gloves, Jung Un, Lim Chae-min, Kim Oh-kyu, and Lim Chang-woo formed a four-back. Jeon Sung-jin and Kim Gun-woong were located in the midfield, and Lee Ju-yong, Kwon Soon-ho, Kim Joo-gong and Seo Jin-soo were located in the front.

It was a tight race. Jeju put pressure on the front with four strikers. Kim Joo-gong’s shot following Lim Chang-woo’s cross slightly missed the goal in the 9th minute of the first half. In the 11th minute of the first half, Kwon Soon-ho attempted a right-footed shot from the left side of the box, but was blocked by goalkeeper Yang Hyung-mo.

Suwon’s momentum was also strong. Ko Seung-beom’s shot, which received a long pass from Lee Ki-je in the 15th minute of the first half, headed straight to goalkeeper Kim Dong-joon. In the 18th minute of the first half, Suwon replaced Park Hee-joon with Acosti, Jeju excluded Kwon Sung-jin and Kwon Soon-ho and put Yuri Jonathan and Hayes. In the middle of the first half, there was no opportunity to shoot. The fight for the ball was fierce in the narrow space of the midfield.

Jeju produced several good scenes with Hayes at the forefront. In the 39th minute of the first half, Hayes’ mid-range shot flew outside the goal, and three minutes later, Hayes’ free-kick touched Jonathan’s head but missed the goal.

Suwon manager Kim Byung-soo completely reorganized his offense by putting in Jeon Jin-woo and Kim Kyung-joong at the start of the second half. Jeju faced unfavorable factors as its main goalkeeper Kim Dong-joon was out due to an injury.

At the beginning of the second half, the two teams showed off their sharp offense. Kazuki in the 6th minute of the second half and Hayes in the 9th minute of the second half attempted a mid-range shot, but it did not lead to a goal. In the 17th minute of the second half, Lee Ju-yong’s shot, which received Hayes’ pass, was blocked by goalkeeper Yang Hyung-mo. A minute later, Suwon launched a counterattack, and goalkeeper Kim Geun-bae, who came in as a substitute, hit Myung Joon-jae’s shot.

Head coach Kim Byung-soo strengthened his height by adding striker Ahn Byung-joon in the 20th minute of the second half and defender Bultuis in the 36th minute of the second half. The mercenary hit the mark perfectly in three minutes. In the 39th minute of the second half, Lee Ki-je’s corner kick with his left foot jumped high and finished with a header.

In the end, Suwon won three points by effectively blocking Jeju’s offensive, which went all-out for one goal.

Suwon managed to confirm their stay after the promotion playoffs last season. It was a report card that did not suit the pride of Suwon’s famous soccer player. This season has been even more disastrous. Since its opening, it has been ranked at the bottom with 10 games (2 draws and 8 losses) without a win. His first win of the season came against Incheon United in the 11th round.

Suwon, which became urgent, threw a super-strong move to replace the coach in May. Suwon, which has been newly transformed under head coach Kim Byung-soo, has rarely rebounded. Suwon remained at the bottom until mid-July.

However, in August, there was a little wave of change. Following the league leader’s victory over Ulsan on the 15th of last month, Gangwon, a rival team in the relegation zone, defeated and escaped from the bottom.

Suwon, which fell to last place again last weekend by giving up its 11th place to Gangwon, desperately needed to win in the 27th round. Bulthuis is the main character who decided the winner in an important game. Following the injury against Daegu on April 30, Kim Byung-soo was sent off in his debut match against Jeonbuk on May 10, leaving him disappointed.

Since then, more people have been keeping the bench. Bultuis has made a reputation as a top defender since entering the K League in 2019. He was a key resource who played in 35 games in Suwon last season after playing in Ulsan. He had no choice but to suffer a setback due to his sharply reduced position in the team this season.

Bultuis returned with 15 minutes in the 26th round against Jeonbuk on the 12th, but he was not in normal condition. In the match against Jeju, he also started on the bench, not on the starter. Bultuis, who was substituted in the 36th minute of the second half, fired a golden winning goal three minutes later, making Suwon home fans excited.

After the game, head coach Kim Byung-soo praised it highly, saying, “It was the most beautiful header goal I’ve ever seen,” and Bultuis said, “It was a very difficult period in my career for five years in Korea. I want to play as a player. “If I get a chance in the future, I want to start,” he said.

Bulthuis and Ahn Byung-joon’s return is like a thousand troops’ death for Suwon. Two months after the match against Incheon on June 11, he succeeded in escaping from the bottom again as well as a scoreless game day, which can be expected to rebound in the rest of the second half.
