‘Korean Duo’ Cho Kyu-sung (25) and Lee Han-beom (21, Mittwillan) scored side-by-side in Denmark.
Mittwillan defeated Hvidovre 4-1 in the 14th round of the 2023-2024 Danish Professional Football Superliga at Hvidovre Stadium in Hvidovre, Denmark on Saturday (June 6).
With the win, Midtjylland extended their unbeaten run in the league to eight games (W5 D3 L). They also moved into third place in the league standings with 27 points (8 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses).
Cho Kyu-sung started and played the full game as a frontline striker, where he formed a two-man frontline alongside Franculinho to lead the team’s attack. He battled with the defense with his excellent delivery and physicality and created chances with his diligent forward pressure.
He even found the back of the net himself. In the 28th minute of the first half with a 1-0 lead, Cho stepped up to take the penalty kick and calmly fooled the goalkeeper before slotting the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal.레모나토토 도메인
It had been a long time coming. Since scoring against Odense in September, Cho Kyu-sung had been silent for four league games and seven official matches. After a goal drought in October, he started scoring in the first league game of November, netting his sixth goal of the season.
Unfortunately, he was unable to find the back of the net. A header from inside the box in the fourth minute of the second half went just wide of the post, and a decisive shot in stoppage time was saved by the goalkeeper.
Cho now has six goals and two assists in the league this season. In all competitions, he has seven goals and two assists, including one in UEFA Champions League qualifying.
Another Korean leaguer, Lee Han-beom, also scored an offensive point. The central defender made his European debut as a 43rd-minute substitute in the second half.
He picked up an assist with a sharp kill pass just two minutes after coming on. He delivered a right-footed pass between three defenders into the box, where Ola Brynhildsen finished with precision for Mittwylan’s fourth goal. It was Lee’s first offensive point for Mittwilan.
Meatwillan, led by Cho Kyu-sung and Lee Han-beom, closed out the match with a 4-1 victory. In the 19th minute, Osorio crossed from the right side after catching a ball that Cho Kyu-sung had dropped with his head. The ball was deflected off a defender and slotted home by Franculinho for the first goal.
A penalty kick from Cho Kyu-sung, an own goal from the opponent in the 43rd minute, and a late goal from Brynhildsen in the 45th minute sealed the comfortable win.
According to soccer statistics site Couch Score, Cho Kyu-sung has a rating of 7.2 and Lee Han-beom has a rating of 7.4. On the day, Cho scored one goal, took four shots, won six aerial battles (6/12), and made one tackle.
