Suwon Bluewings - Season can kick on

Suwon Bluewings the South Korean team that finished 3rd in the league last season are still to get into full swing. After a strong start to the season last time out a run which included winning five games in a row, they lost momentum in the title race. In the end, too many draws cost them and despite beating Jeonbuk Motors on the last day of the campaign they lost out on the title by 11 points. 

The side who has twice won the Asian Champions League has had a mix start in the current campaign however it's been far from a  disaster. Although in the week it turned disastrous though when they lost 4-1 to Sydney FC a team seen as being a far weaker side as themselves in the Champions League. The scores where 2-1 until the 79th minute but Sydney FC managed two late goals to make the victory look a bit more clinical than it was. 

Instantly with one game remaining in the group on the 17th April, Suwon Bluewings face Kashima Antlers away in a game which if they win will see them top their group getting the season right back on track. So right now things are not looking too bad but the next few weeks could make or break the season. 

As we look back at the K League 1 form of Suwon Bluewings it's also been hit and miss with the side close to really kicking on this season. Currently, the side is sitting fifth in the league five points of top team Gyeongnam. After losing to Jeonnam Dragons on the opening day of the season the side has only conceded one goal in their three other league games. This is positive but they have only scored four in the same amount of games. For a team that is looking to challenge for the title, this is something that will need to change.

Despite their lack of goals in new signing Dejan Damjanović the Montenegrin striker who has already put in some solid performances and has scored six goals in all competitions already this season. Next up for him and Suwon Bluewings will be FC Seoul where he spent six years of his career over two spells. It should be an exciting game and can be watched on K League live when it kicks off at 3 pm local time on Saturday 7th April. 

A win in this big game at home on the weekend could really kick-start the Suwon Bluewings season and after losing in the week to Sydney FC they will be trying their best to get the three points. Then if they where able to get a few wins in the coming weeks the tie against Jeonbuk Motors on the 29th April could prove to be a vital match in the shape of the K League 1 season.
