It’s a storming start. Last round, Gwangju hosted Suwon Samseong, and despite conceding an early goal and suffocating defence from their opponents, they came from behind to win 2-1 thanks to Thomas’ K League debut and a multi-goal performance.
Gwangju are now unbeaten in their last five matches (four wins and one draw), including the FA Cup, and have won three straight in the league. Next up is a promotion battle against Daejeon. Gwangju will be looking to extend their winning streak with a victory away to Daejeon and enter the A-Match break on a high.
Gwangju attacked fiercely until the end of the last round. The best player of the match was ‘Brazilian finisher’ Tomas. Coming on as a substitute in the eighth minute of the second half, he not only gave the attack a huge boost with his brilliant dribbling and sharp key passes, but also scored multi-goals in the 23rd and 45th minutes to lead his team to victory.
The second line of attackers, including Asani and Lee Hee-gyun, also contributed to the team’s victory with their lively movements and key passes. In addition, Doo Hyun-seok and Kim Han-gil also played well with their aggressive runs and sharp crosses.
Going into this match, the team is in fifth place with seven wins, four draws and six losses. They have a number of talented players, including Joo Se-jong, Lee Hyun-sik, Lee Jin-hyun, and Gong Min-hyun, as well as foreign players such as Leandro, Thiago, Anton, and Masa.
The head-to-head record is also in favour of Gwangju, with nine wins, nine draws and 10 losses. However, in their last five games, Gwangju have been strong with two wins and three draws, most notably in their last outing away to Daejeon, where they battled back to earn a draw thanks to a late injury-time goal from Lee Sang-ki, after clinching the K League 2 title last season.
Gwangju is confident of victory and is determined to attack the opponent’s goal with aggressive attacks and link-up play.
