Korean Air, which is aiming for ‘Treble’, and Hyundai Capital, which is trying to take the peak of rebuilding, will produce another great game on the spring volleyball stage.
Korean Air and Hyundai Capital will play the first leg of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s championship match (5 matches, 3 wins) at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium on the 30th. Korean Air, which has been ranked first in the regular league for three consecutive years, has three consecutive wins in integration, and Hyundai Capital aims to recapture the top four years after the 2018-2019 season.
The two teams clashed in the championship match for three consecutive years in the 2016-2017, 2017-2018, and 2018-2019 seasons. Hyundai Capital lifted the trophy for the 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 seasons, and Korean Air lifted the trophy for the 2017-2018 season.
The past two years of Korean Air and Hyundai Capital have been completely different. Korean Air beat Woori Card in the 2020-2021 season and KB Insurance in the 2021-2022 season, ranked first in the regular league and won the championship match, rising to the position of the strongest in the men’s division in the 2020s. After Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which dominated the early days of the V-League, it earned the title of ‘dynasty’.
The Korean Air dynasty was also strong in the 2021-2022 season. After establishing a solo system right after the opening of the regular season, he overcame Hyundai Capital’s pursuit and took first place in the regular season for three consecutive years.
Driven by momentum, Korean Air is aiming for the second consecutive victory in the V-League history and the’Treble’ (winning the cup competition – 1st place in the regular league – winning the championship match). 3 consecutive victories in the men’s division and the treble are the heights that no team has been able to climb in the past 13 years, ending with Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.
Korean Air is ready to write a new history by taking enough rest for over 10 days after the final match of the regular season on the 19th. In the opponent record this season, they had an overwhelming advantage with 5 wins and 1 loss.
Hyundai Capital, which ranked second in the regular league, defeated KEPCO 2-1 after a bloody battle in the playoffs and returned to the highest level of spring volleyball in 4 years. After winning the 2018-2019 season, he has been in the lower ranks for the past three years and has suffered ups and downs, but after a successful rebuild this season, he has led the growth of young players.
In the playoffs, coach Choi Tae-woong’s use of eight-color tactics shone. As coach Choi is facing the fifth championship match as a command tower, the battle of resourcefulness with Korean Air coach Tommy Tilikhainen is an interesting point to watch. 메이저사이트
Hyundai Capital is in a state where it is unable to operate 100% of its power due to the injury and departure of a native ace Jeon Kwang-in. The key is how to overcome the physical weakness that only took a day off after the third game of the playoffs.
It is also eye-catching whether Hyundai Capital can continue the ‘second place jinx’. Hyundai Capital experienced the joy of winning in both the 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 seasons, when they advanced to the championship match after finishing the regular league in second place after the 2015-2016 season when coach Choi took office.
