The match between FC Seoul, which is second in the professional soccer K-League 1, and Jeju United, which is in third place, ended in a draw.
Seoul lost the first goal to Yuri Jonathan in the 33rd minute of the second half in Jeju’s Hana One Q K League 1 2022 round 14 home game held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 20th, but five minutes later Willian’s equalizing goal broke and the score was 1-1.
Seoul continued their home undefeated streak in 5 games (3 wins, 2 draws) and secured second place (24 points, 7 wins, 3 draws, 4 losses, 28 goals).
Seoul is ahead of Jeju opponents this season with 1 win and 1 draw.
Jeju recorded the same number of points and draws and losses as Seoul, but maintained third place behind in the number of goals (21 goals).
Jeju failed to win 6 consecutive wins, the most since the team was founded.
Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo, who was sent off for protesting against the referee in the last round against Ulsan Hyundai, could not sit on the bench, and head coach Kim Jin-gyu took charge of the team instead.
Seoul’s ‘Chang’, who scored the most points in the league, could hardly break through Jeju’s ‘Shield’, which was tied for second with the least goals.
Jeju’s three-back defensive line, which connects Seoul’s proud triangular formation of Na Sang-ho, Hwang Ui-jo, and Im Sang-hyeop, with Kim O-kyu, Lim Chae-min, and Jeong-woon blocked it well.
There was also a scene where the accuracy of the tip of the spear was disappointing.
In the 6th minute of the second half, Ki Sung-yueng’s right-footed mid-range shot hit the net outside the left side of the goal, and 5 minutes later, Na Sang-ho’s shot from the right side of the goal shook the right net.
Jeju, which was well blocked, scored the first goal with a sharp counterattack.
Yuri Jonatan, who came in as a substitute in the 13th minute of the second half, finished Ahn Hyun-beom’s grounder cross in the 33rd minute with a right-footed shot that pierced the bottom right corner of the goal.
The play of Ahn Hyun-beom, who broke through the right flank like a gale, overtaking two Seoul players earlier, shined.
Seoul, who had been knocking constantly, immediately turned the match to the starting point.
In the 38th minute of the second half, Jeju goalkeeper Kim Dong-joon flew forward and hit the ball to Willian, who pushed it into the empty goal.
A video review (VAR) was conducted regarding Kim Dong-jun’s contact with Seoul Kim Shin-jin when he hit the ball, but no penalty kick was awarded.
Right before the end of the game, Seoul had to be content with a draw as Han Seung-gyu’s shot was caught by Lim Chae-min.
At the Incheon Soccer Stadium, the home team, Incheon United, drew 1-1 with Gwangju FC thanks to an equalizer from center back Kwon Jin-jin.
It is a very unsatisfying result for both teams, which have been in a bad mood lately.
Incheon failed to break the chain of draws in 4 games (2 draws, 2 losses).
Gwangju, which received attention as a ‘promotional team with a blast’ by posting 4 wins until the 7th round, recorded a draw in 7 matches (3 draws, 4 losses) on this day.
Gwangju took the lead in the 8th minute through center back Ahn Young-kyu’s goal.
When Doo Hyun-seok connected a corner kick from the right with a volley, and it flowed past the defense, Ahn Young-gyu, who was lurking in front of the goal, shook the net with a quick shot.
Incheon launched an all-out offensive, but it was difficult to score an equalizer.
In the 16th minute of the second half, even after entering the dangerous area of Gwangju with a quick counterattack, he unnecessarily turned the ball around and blew the opportunity he had worked hard to create.안전놀이터
In the 28th minute of the second half, Kim Bo-seop’s cool diving header hit the butt of Jerso in front of him.
The long-awaited goal came only in the 35th minute of the second half.
Kwon Jin-jin, who was a center back but added to the attack, finished the ball from the left side of the goal area with a left-footed shot to turn the game around.
Kwon Jin-jin made a name for himself as a striker during his time at Kyunghee University, but changed his position to center back after he advanced to the pros.
It has been 2 years and 1 month since Kwon Jin-jin scored against Seoul in April 2021 when he was playing for Jeju United.
