‘Cho Kyu-sung’s first goal in European competition’ Mittwillan defeats Omonia 5-1…’0-1→5-2′ reversal → UECL PO advances

Cho Kyu-sung scored his first goal in European competition as Mittwylan overturned a first-leg deficit to advance to the UEFA Europa Conference playoffs.

Mittwylan won 5-1 at home against OMONIA in the second leg of their UEFA Europa Conference third qualifying round tie for the 2023/24 season at the MCH Arena in Henning, Denmark on Monday (June 18). Having previously lost the first leg away 0-1, Mitwylan advanced to the playoffs of the competition with a 5-2 aggregate score. In the process, Cho Kyu-sung also added a goal from the penalty spot.

Mittwilan started in a 4-2-3-1. Jonas Rosl pulled on the goalkeeping gloves. Oliver Sørensen Jensen, Stefan Gartenmann, Juninho and Paulinho formed the back four. Christopher Olsen and Amin Gigovic formed the midfield, with Aral Simsir, Charles, and Franculino in the second line. Cho Kyu-sung was the frontline striker, looking to score.

OMONIA also lined up in a 4-2-3-1. Fabianu was in goal, while Adam Matthews, Senu Koulibaly, Leung Adam, and Jan Letzak formed the backline. Ionis Koussros and Fouad Bachirou partnered in midfield, while Leozos Leozou, Roman Bezus, and Willy Semedou supported frontline striker Andronikos Kakoulis in the second line.

Mitwylan needed a quick goal to overturn their first leg away defeat. In the 24th minute, Kuslos was fouled in the box and a penalty kick was awarded. Kuslos was immediately sent off for a direct challenge. Cho Kyu-sung stepped up to the plate. In the 27th minute, Cho stepped up to take the kick and finished cleanly to give the hosts the lead. It was Cho’s first goal on the European stage.

With the score tied at 1-1, Mittwylan struck right back. In the 31st minute, Kakoulis equalized. Kakoullis received a penetrating pass and rattled the net with a light chip shot in a one-on-one situation.

With the score now 1-2, Mitwillan scored two goals in quick succession in the final minutes of the first half to put the game out of reach. In the 43rd minute, Franculino finished off a cross from the flank, and in first-half stoppage time, Franculino found the back of the net once again to complete his multi-goal performance. Mitwillan went into halftime with a 3-2 aggregate score.

The scoring continued for Mitwylan. Franculino put the game out of reach with a hat trick. In the 19th minute of the second half, he converted a pass in the box into a stunning left-footed volley to split the net. Cho Kyu-sung was subbed off for Brumadou in the 32nd minute, and Mitwillan sealed the win in the 35th minute when Gigovic scored his fifth goal of the game.

With no further goals scored, Mitwylan held on for a 5-1 victory, advancing to the playoffs with a 5-2 aggregate score. Their opponents will be Polish side Legia Warsaw, with the first leg at Mittwylan on April 24 and the second leg in Warsaw on April 31.

Meanwhile, Cho Kyu-sung scored his first goal in a European competition after qualifying for Denmark. Previously, Cho had appeared in three matches, including two second-leg qualifiers against Progress Nidercom and a first-leg away match against OMONIA, but went without a goal.

In the last game, a league match against Vejle Wai, he was disappointing, putting in his worst performance since arriving in Denmark.

Jo Kyu-sung, who made his European debut this summer with a move to Midtjylland, has shown a keen eye for goal and has established himself as a regular striker despite the adjustment period.

After scoring his debut goal in the league opener on May 22 to help the team to a 1-0 victory, Cho scored another goal in the second round of the league on May 30, making it two goals in two consecutive league games.

In the third round of the league, the team lost 1-4, but Cho shined. Cho came on as a substitute in the 36th minute with the team trailing 0-3 and scored on the ground.

In the second overtime period, when the team was down 0-4, he made a great penetration on a pass from the back of the field and stayed focused until the end, putting his foot on it and firing it into the back of the net. Mittwilan narrowly avoided defeat thanks to a goal from Cho Kyu-sung.

After scoring in three consecutive league games, Cho Kyu-sung tried to make it four in a row against Vejle, but he missed a penalty that he earned himself.

Unable to withstand the pressure, Cho Kyu-sung was substituted for Sori Kaba in the ninth minute of the second half and left the field, and instead of returning to the bench, he headed straight to the locker room, seemingly unable to cut minutes.

There were no second chances for the frustrated Cho. He converted his penalty kick opportunity against Omonia. It was a meaningful performance, as he shook off his poor form from the previous game and scored his first goal in European competition. 먹튀검증

Our next opponent, Warsaw, is a prestigious team with ties to the Polish capital, having won 15 first division titles since its founding in 1916. They’ve also won a whopping 20 cups.

In the third qualifying round of the Europa League, they came from behind to beat Austrian giants Austria Wien to reach the playoffs. After going down 1-2 at home in the first leg, Warsaw bounced back to record a 5-3 win away from home in the second leg, with the winner coming 10 minutes into stoppage time, to advance to the next round on a 6-5 aggregate score.

After scoring his first goal on the European stage, Cho will look to make it two in a row against Warsaw.
