Gwangju FC beats Jeonbuk 2-0 in ‘new coach’s debut’…unbeaten in six games

Professional soccer’s K League 1 Gwangju FC extended its unbeaten streak to six games with a victory over Jeonbuk Hyundai, which saw the debut of a new head coach.

Gwangju defeated Jeonbuk 2-0 in the 19th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at the Gwangju Football Stadium today (April 24) with a goal from Lee Sun-min in the 19th minute and a wedge goal from Lee Kun-hee in second-half stoppage time온라인카지노.

With a comfortable win in their first game after the A-Match break, Gwangju jumped from eighth to fifth place (28-8 points, 4 wins, 2 draws) with an unbeaten run of six games (4 wins, 2 draws).

However, this position could change depending on the outcome of the upcoming Ulsan Hyundai-Daegu FC match.

Gwangju is unbeaten in seven matches (5 wins, 2 draws) if you count their Korea Football Association FA Cup Round of 16 win (1-0) over Seoul Eland.

They also avenged a 2-0 loss to Jeonbuk in the third round in style.

Romanian coach Dan Petrescu, who took over the reins of the ‘giant’ Jeonbuk from former coach Kim Sang-sik, who stepped down due to poor performance, suffered a crushing defeat in his K League debut.

Jeonbuk attacked aggressively with long passes aimed at the head of long striker Gustavo.

They pressed very aggressively in the opponent’s danger zone to win the ball.

Jeonbuk had a chance to score in the first 20 seconds of the match when the ball stolen by Gustavo’s pressure found its way through Hapasilva to Han Gyo-won, but Han’s shot went wide left of the goal.

Jeonbuk’s long passing attack was somewhat monotonous, perhaps due to the fact that Kim Jin-soo, who is good with crosses, was out of the lineup with a facial injury sustained with the national team.

The flow of the game gradually shifted to Gwangju, who played a more detailed midfield game, which led to the final goal in the 19th minute.

In the 19th minute, Gwangju’s Doo Hyun-seok’s roving pass was finished by Lee Sun-min with a back header in the box.

It was the first goal of the season and the fourth of his K League career for Lee Soon-min, a multi-role player who started as a flanker but has been playing in the midfield this season.

Stung by the blow, Jeonbuk took off Lee Dong-joon and Hapasilva at the start of the second half and brought on Cho Kyu-sung and Song Min-gyu to take the reins of the offense.

In the ninth minute of the second half, Cho Kyu-sung sent in a sharp cross from the left that Gustavo headed straight at Gwangju goalkeeper Lee Jun.

Gwangju didn’t stand still, either.

In the 22nd minute, a grounded cross from the left by Thomas rattled the net as Kim Han-gil finished with a non-stop shot from the right side of the goal area, but the goal was disallowed after video assistant referee (VAR) showed that Gwangju’s Jung Ho-yeon had fouled Jeonbuk’s Goo Ja-ryong in the previous play.

Refusing to back down from Jeonbuk’s offense, Gwangju responded in kind and eventually drove a wedge into the match with a goal from Lee Kun-hee in late stoppage time.

After receiving a forward pass from Jung Ho-yeon, Lee boldly shot with her right foot with two defenders in front of her in the goal area and rattled the net.

Lee also scored her first goal of the season.
