Lee Kun-hee and Becca consecutive goals… Gwangju takes ‘Chapo’ and Ulsan goes ‘all out’

Gwangju FC, ‘one year after promotion’ in professional soccer K-League 1, defeated leader Ulsan Hyundai for the first time in eight years and went undefeated for nine consecutive games.

Gwangju defeated Ulsan 2-0 in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 29th round away game held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium on the afternoon of the 3rd.

After losing 0-1 in the home game against Ulsan on July 2, Gwangju went on an upward trend by going undefeated for about two months.

Gwangju (12 wins, 9 draws, 8 losses, 45 points), who swept up 17 points with 4 wins and 5 draws in this section, maintained the top spot even though it was mid-to-late season, despite being labeled as a promoted team. 온라인카지노

If Jeonbuk Hyundai (42 points) does not win the next game by scoring more than 7 goals, Gwangju will be confirmed for 3rd place in this round.

Above all, Gwangju achieved a ‘welcome victory’ against Ulsan for the first time in eight years.

The last time Gwangju defeated Ulsan was in an away game (1-0) on July 11, 2015.

This season, they lost both of their previous two matches.

On the other hand, Ulsan (19 wins, 4 draws, 7 losses, 61 points), who had only 1 win in the last 5 games, was unable to widen the points gap with second place Pohang Steelers (53 points) to double digits on this day.

Gwangju FC scored first thanks to Ha Seung-woon’s persistence.

In the 17th minute of the first half, Ha Seung-woon created a mixed bag by overcoming opposing midfielders Lee Dong-kyung and Lee Gyu-seong after a persistent struggle near the penalty arc.

As a result, Lee Dong-kyung, Lee Kyu-seong, and Jeong Seung-hyeon made a mistake and the ball accidentally flowed backwards, and Lee Kun-hee did not miss it and quickly rushed to the front of the goal.

Lee Kun-hee, who even passed goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo, who advanced to narrow the angle, pushed the ball in with his left foot and flowed into Ulsan’s goal.

Last defender Kim Young-kwon tried to clear the ball with his body, but it was not enough.

At the start of the second half, Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo attempted to turn things around by subtracting Dong-kyung Lee and inserting Won-sang Eom, who is good at breaking through.

However, it was Gwangju who struck the net in the second half.

Nine minutes into the second half, Beka opened the goal for Ulsan, guarded by Cho Hyun-woo, with a thunderous right-footed shot.

In the penalty arc, when Lee Hee-gyun’s mid-range shot bounced off the defense, Beca leapt from her spot and finished with a picturesque volley.

This is the first score reported in the K-League by Beka, a Georgian striker who joined Gwangju last June.

Coach Hong, who became desperate, threw a game-winning move two minutes later by bringing in Joo Min-gyu and Lee Cheong-yong.

However, as there was no change in the situation, they went all-out by replacing Kim Min-hyuk in the 22nd minute with midfielder Boyanic, a former member of the Swedish national team, and Kim Tae-hwan instead of Seol Young-woo in the 26th minute.

However, Ulsan was unable to overcome Gwangju’s defense, which featured the concentration of Lee Sun-min, Ahn Young-gyu, and Aaron, and had to accept a 0-2 defeat at home.
