No one laughed at the confrontation between Suwon Samsung and Gangwon FC, desperate for the first win of the season.

Both Suwon and Gangwon had the same desire for the first win of the season, but the preparation process during the A match break was different. While Suwon focused on practice matches with Chengdu Rongcheng (China), Gangwon only trained itself due to injuries.
Before the game, Suwon coach Lee Byung-geun showed a strong will to win, saying, “I lost a lot of confidence because I couldn’t use good chances,” but “I know that the fans cheer more than boo.” Gangwon coach Choi Yong-soo said, “Yang Hyun-joon has returned from a fractured nose, but he has to wear a mask and his ankle is not good. He worried, “Dino also has Achilles tendon pain.”
With the start of the game, Suwon fans started a cheering boycott as previously announced. However, whenever the team made a threatening scene, cheers steadily energized the players. In the midst of repeated battles, Vasani raised the atmosphere on the pitch in the first half of extra time, reporting his first goal of the season with a right-footed kick.
Gangwon camped out of Bae Su with the introduction of the injured. In the 36th minute of the first half, Yang Hyun-jun was put in instead of Alibaev, and in the 17th minute of the second half, Dino was put in instead of Gallego to increase the number of victories. Jung Seung-yong at the end of the first half and Kim Jin-ho in the second half of the second half failed to save a no-mark chance, but the game gradually revived. Eventually, in the 28th minute of the second half, Kim Jin-ho caught the ball given by Kim Dae-won in the penalty box, dribbled it to the center, and finished with a left-footed shot to score the first goal of the season. Suwon diligently went back and forth to the Gangwon camp for the rest of the time, but only gave 1 point to the 7428 home crowd.
