Gangwon FC has secured its first win in four matches.
Led by head coach Yoon Jeong-hwan, Gangwon won 3-1 against Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 30th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on April 16. It was a valuable victory after three consecutive games without a win (one draw and two losses). With four wins, 12 draws and 14 losses, and 24 points, Gangwon overtook Suwon Samseong, who lost 0-1 to Daegu FC on Sunday, to escape the bottom of the table.
The first goal belonged to Jeonbuk. They took the lead in the fifth minute when Gustavo converted a penalty kick with ease. However, the game was then completely controlled by Gangwon, whose efforts paid off in the final minutes of the first half. In the 45th minute, Gabriel received the ball in front of the arc and beat the goalkeeper with an off-timing right-footed shot. It was Gabriel’s first goal in K1.
It didn’t end there. In the second minute of first-half stoppage time, Yago laid the ball off to Gallego, who broke into the box and rattled Jeonbuk’s net with a right-footed strike to the near post. It was Gallegos’ second league goal in 22 games.
Jeonbuk showed their determination to win by introducing Moon Sun-min and Ahn Hyun-beom, who had traveled with the national team to England, at the start of the second half. However, from the middle of the second half, the ground conditions deteriorated to the point where the ball could not roll properly due to heavy rain. It was in this situation that Kangwon drove a wedge. In the 30th minute, Shin Min-woo sent a long pass to Kim Dae-won near the halfway line, and Kim’s shot from inside the box with a defender in front of him beat the defender and went into the back of the net. Kim Dae-won’s second goal of the league. The game ended with a 3-1 victory for Gangwon.소닉카지노
Gangwon dominated Jeonbuk with 20 shots on goal (9 on target) on the day, and will need their offense to step up if they want to stay in the competition. Both 9th-ranked Jeju United (35 points) and 10th-ranked Suwon FC (29 points) lost in this round, keeping Gangwon’s hopes alive. With three games left in the regular round, it is crucial for the team to continue the momentum of this win.
