‘Destructive’ Gwangju, who scored first goal against Ulsan despite taking off the chapeau…”We will face Ulsan”
Gwangju FC, which has been making waves in the Korean Football League (K League 1) with its fiery attacking style of play, will be looking for a win in its third meeting with leaders Ulsan Hyundai. In the previous two matches, Gwangju lost to Ulsan by scores of 1-2 and 0-1.
Gwangju took a 1-0 lead in the first half of their K League 1 Round 29 match against Ulsan at Munsusu Stadium in Ulsan at 4:30 p.m. on March 3 when Lee Kun-hee’s left-footed shot found the back of the net in the 17th minute. Ulsan goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo and defender Kim Young-kwon threw themselves into action, but they couldn’t stop Gwangju’s relentless pursuit of the goal. Lee Kun-hee capitalized on a crucial opportunity to score her fourth goal of the season.
In the ninth minute of the second half, Bekah scored the “Wonder Goal” by hitting the ball non-stop from outside the penalty area after it bounced off a defender. It was Becca’s first goal of the season.
Gwangju hasn’t lost a game this season, with three wins and five draws in their last eight matches. They met Ulsan on the road for the second time in two months, having gone without a win since a 0-1 home defeat on July 2. On April 30, Gwangju’s Lee Kang-hyun scored the opening goal at Munsusu Stadium in Ulsan, but back-to-back goals from Ulsan’s Bako and In-Jin-gyu gave them the lead.
Timo, the centerpiece of the defense, is out with an injury, while Heo Yul and Asani are unavailable after accumulating cautions in the last round. There is also no Thumb in the U23 squad.
“It was very difficult to prepare for this match,” Gwangju head coach Lee Jung-hyo told reporters ahead of the game, adding, “Four days ago, I was feeling down and out, but the players understood.” “We prepared for a game where we can show our colors,” he said, adding, “Even though our opponent is Ulsan, we are going to try to ‘face off’ in earnest.” 바카라사이트
