Gwangju FC runs toward victory in the K League 1 home opening game.
Gwangju will play FC Seoul and Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 2 home opener at 4:30 pm on the 5th at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium.
Gwangju returned to the K-League 1 after a year with overwhelming results last season. And that dignity continued in the first division. In the last round, Gwangju, who left for Suwon Samsung, won a pleasant 1-0 victory thanks to Asani’s dramatic goal just before the end of the game.
After the 2017 season (1-0 win against Daegu FC), Gwangju played a splendid return to the K League 1 by winning the opening game of the K League 1. Now, as we face the fans in the home opener, we are determined to raise the atmosphere even more with two consecutive wins.
The performance of the recruited players was outstanding. Dutch defender Timo contributed to the scoreless victory based on solid defense, and Thomas worked well with Sandro with a lot of activity in the front. Asani, who was substituted here, led the team to victory with a powerful left-footed shot in the 43rd minute of the second half.
Umji-seong, Jeong Ho-yeon, and Lee Hee-gyun, who were from Gwangju youth, also contributed to the team’s victory with sharp passes and dribbles, and Kim Kyung-min, who saved the team from crisis with a fantastic super save at the decisive moment, cannot be overlooked.
This opponent, Seoul, is a traditional league powerhouse. It has an overwhelming advantage with 2 wins, 4 draws and 13 losses against opponents, and existing players such as Ki Sung-yong, Palosevich, Osmar, and Ilyuchenko, as well as Im Sang-hyeop, Hwang Ui-jo, and Choi Cheol-won, joined the team to form a strong squad.메이저놀이터
However, Gwangju has a strong motivation for Seoul. It is the determination to wash away the painful memories of the 3-4 come-from-behind defeat in the home match in October of the 2021 season with this home opener victory.
Attention is focusing on whether Gwangju can beat Seoul and report a perfect K-League 1 comeback match in front of home fans.
