“How confidently you can do it will determine the game today.”

Gyeongnam coach Seol Ki-hyun said, “Defensive stability is steadily improving. Now, it is necessary to continue creating chances through an offensive process. So I told the players to work hard as we prepared with confidence.” Seongnam coach Lee Ki-hyung also said, “The first thing I hit was that I said that I shouldn’t lose confidence or be pushed by the opponent’s fight.” He continued, “In the case of Gyeongnam, there are many attacks by side crosses or second balls following long balls, so I told them to focus on defense in those areas. I emphasized to try a lot of crosses by penetrating movements or side plays.”
The match will be held in Yangsan. Coach Seol said, “I don’t think it’s bad. First of all, the grass is good. Changwon has a grass problem at the end as we use it with Changwon FC. As we are a provincial club, we have an obligation to play in a place like Yangsan. It’s 안전놀이터 a bit awkward, but However, as awkward as it is for us as well as for the other party, I don’t think the downside is that big.” Coach Lee said, “I’m more concerned about the daytime game. It’s hot and humid, so I think concentration in the second half is important.”
