Bucheon FC 1995 secured a thrilling victory over Gyeongnam FC after a hard-fought defensive battle.
Bucheon earned a 1-0 victory over Gyeongnam in the 33rd round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Bucheon Sports Complex at 6:30 p.m. on April 24. Bucheon snapped a three-match winless streak with the victory, while Gyeongnam failed to turn their fortunes around after failing to win in three consecutive matches.
The home team Bucheon deployed a 3-4-3 formation. Kim Bo-yong, Lee Yi-hyung, and Kim Honam led the attack from the front, with Park Hyung-jin and Jung Hee-woong on the left and right flanks and Kaz and Choi Jae-young in the middle. Signor Kwan, Nilsson Junior, and Lee Dong-hee formed the back three, with Lee Bum-soo wearing the goalkeeping gloves.
The away team, Gyeongnam, came out with a 4-4-2 formation with mostly young players. Lee Jong-un and Cho Jo-hyung-gi formed the top two, with Leo, Song Hong-min, Lee Min-hyuk, and Seol Hyun-jin in the midfield. The back four consisted of Park Min-seo, Lee Kang-hee, Kim Young-chan, and Lee Jun-jae, with Go Dong-min in goal.
The first half was a tense exploratory game. Bucheon played calmly without raising the overall line, while Gyeongnam tried to attack from the flanks but had few chances. Bucheon created one good chance first. In the 9th minute, Kim Bo-yong sent in a cross from the side and Kim Honam headed it in, but the ball didn’t quite hit his head.
With chances not coming easily throughout, Bucheon tried to get out of the frustrating situation with mid-range shots. In the 29th minute, Lee Yi-hyung tried a low shot from outside the penalty box, and in the 31st minute, Choi Jae-young used his pace in front of the arc to send a low mid-range shot just wide of the goal. Bucheon had their best chance in the 38th minute when Jung Hee-woong’s pass was cleverly heeled in by Kim Ho-nam, only to be blocked by the goalkeeper.
Gyeongnam made more aggressive moves in the second half, but the 0-0 balance was not broken. Gyeongnam was the first to make changes to their lineup. Gyeongnam substituted four players at the same time in the 13th minute of the second half. Instead of Cho Hyang-ki, Leo, Lee Min-hyuk, and Seol Hyun-jin, they brought on Lee Kwang-jin, Park Min-seo, Mo Jae-hyun, and Won Ki-jong. Bucheon also made a change in the attack in the 18th minute of the second half, removing Kim Bo-yong and Lee Yi-hyung and introducing Hamos and Lupeta.온라인바카라
In the 25th minute, Kim Young-chan caught Lupeta while marking him, causing a nervous reaction from Lupeta. Gyeongnam also came out aggressively in the second half, with Lee Kwang-jin hitting a sharp free kick from the side in the 34th minute, but it was Bucheon who rattled the net first in the 39th minute when Hamos’ sharp free kick led to Kim Young-chan’s own goal. Bucheon, who prioritized stabilizing their defense, and Gyeongnam, who had stark differences in their strategies in the first and second halves, were the smiling teams after a fierce defensive battle.
