BNK needs to win home games in Changwon and Ulsan to move up to second place.스포츠토토
Asan Woori Bank confirmed the regular league championship for the 2022-2023 season, Yongin Samsung Life Insurance and Incheon Shinhan Bank also secured at least 4th place. The remaining playoff spots are likely to go to Busan BNK. If BNK wins 1 or Cheongju KB loses 1, BNK will take the last playoff ticket.
Currently, Samsung Life is in second place with 15 wins and 10 losses, Shinhan Bank is in third place with 14 wins and 11 losses, and BNK is in fourth place with 13 wins and 12 losses.
Looking at simple wins and losses, it seems difficult for BNK to rise to 2nd place, but on the other hand, BNK is well ahead of Samsung Life Insurance and Shinhan Bank with 3 wins and 2 losses, so BNK can also aim for a rebound to 2nd place.
BNK coach Park Jeong-eun said ahead of the game against Woori Bank on the 13th, “Fortunately, we still have a chance to rise to second place. I emphasize that the players never get frustrated and try to quickly raise what they are not good at,” he said. “I also encourage the players to play better. The fight for second place can only be known until the end, and if (a fierce competition for ranking) helps the league, you have to work hard.”
“If we focus not only on today’s (13th) match but also on the 6th round match, there is a possibility of second place even if we lose today’s match. It is in an advantageous position (before opponents) against Samsung Life Insurance or Shinhan Bank. If there is a tie (final score), there is a good chance. I think two games (difference) is fine,” he added, “the games held in Changwon and Busan are important.”
BNK, which is based in Busan, will have home games against Shinhan Bank in Changwon on the 19th and Samsung Life Insurance in Ulsan on the 24th.
BNK had two home matches in Masan in the 2019-2020 season (January 17th, 2020 vs. Shinhan Bank, 20th vs. KB). Due to Corona 19, the Gyeongnam and Ulsan match, which was not recently promoted, will be held again this season.
Coincidentally, they face a team competing for second place in the game between Changwon and Ulsan.
Director Park Jeong-eun said, “The schedule was like that. In a way, it doesn’t take advantage of the home advantage. Changwon and Ulsan are close to Busan, so they think of them as home, and (players) don’t want to think of that (a home game like an away). When Changwon and Ulsan fans meet us, they will have a fan heart. Of course I have to do it, and I have no choice but to play hard thinking that it is home.”
If BNK beats them all, they will gain Changwon and Ulsan fans, and it is possible to rebound to 2nd place. On the contrary, we face the worst situation of meeting Woori Bank, who is ranked first in the playoffs.
