The 2022-2023 V-League, which opened in October of last year, has already passed the midpoint. After playing the 4th round until the 27th and the All-Star game on the 29th, a fierce ranking fight for spring volleyball is expected to unfold in earnest. In the current situation ahead of the end of the 4th round, let’s predict the men’s and women’s divisions. 바카라
◆ Men’s Division: Korean Air’s solo run, 2nd to 4th places are in the fog.
For men’s division, Korean Air’s 3 consecutive regular season wins are almost likely. Born in 1985 and now turning 39 in Korean age this year, the setter duo of Han Seon-su and Kwang-woo Yoo and the outside hitter duo of Jeong Ji-seok and Seung-seok Kwak, who are good at both offense and defense, hold the center of the team. As of the 23rd, with 55 points (19 wins and 4 losses), it is significantly ahead of second place Hyundai Capital (43 points, 14 wins and 9 losses), so if there are no other variables, it is expected that the direct ticket to the championship match will be easily won.
Hyundai Capital’s second place, which seemed to be solidifying, seems to be in a state of confusion as Hyundai Capital’s recent two consecutive losses and Woori Card’s three consecutive wins mesh. Hyundai Capital lost 1-3 in the Woori Card match on the 19th just before the Lunar New Year holiday and the Korea Electric Power Match on the 23rd, which was played during the Lunar New Year holiday, and could not add a single point.
In a situation where Hyundai Capital’s overall pace has fallen somewhat, Woori Card overcame Korean Air, Hyundai Capital, and OK Financial Group, which were at the top of the leaderboard in the last three games, despite the absence of coaches and key players such as coach Shin Young-chul and Kim Ji-han, fighting for the rankings in the second half. It seems that he is becoming the biggest dark horse in the world. Currently, 3rd place Woori Card (14-9) and 4th place OK Financial Group (12-11) both have 37 points, with a difference of only 6 points from Hyundai Capital. This means that the rankings can be overturned depending on the results of the confrontation between the three teams in the two rounds after the All-Star Game.
KEPCO, which was slightly behind in 5th place, gained strength to participate in the spring volleyball competition by climbing to the high of 30 points (9 wins and 14 losses) through a victory over Hyundai Capital on the 23rd.
6th place KB Insurance (21 points, 7 wins, 15 losses) and 7th place Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (17 points, 5 wins, 18 losses) are in a situation where spring volleyball has become somewhat difficult, but how much red pepper powder can be sprinkled on top teams in the remaining schedule? I’m interested to see if I can
◆ Women’s division: Hyundai Engineering & Construction – Heungkuk Life Insurance’s leading fight, 3rd to 4th place fight with up to 4 teams participating
The women’s division has virtually decided on two spring volleyball invitations. Hyundai Engineering & Construction (57 points, 20 wins and 3 losses), which maintained its lead throughout the season by winning 15 straight wins in the opening season despite bad news from foreign main shooter Yasmin’s injury. Heungkuk Life Insurance (54 points, 18 wins and 5 losses), which is seeing the comeback effect of ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung, despite all kinds of bad news, such as the controversy over the player’s intervention by the club’s top line and the internal conflict of the command tower replacement, widened a generous gap of more than 20 points with the other five teams. is the situation.
Now, the focus is on who gets a direct ticket to the championship match. Hyundai E&C boasted an overwhelming win rate of 14 wins and 3 losses, with Yasmin playing only 6 games, and Hwang Yeon-joo, the ‘Deer’, filling Yasmin’s void well in the 17 games he was away from. As the 5th round begins, Yasmin’s return becomes visible, so it is possible to defend the lead. In the end, it seems that the direction of winning the regular league will be different in the remaining two matches between the two teams.
