FC Seoul drew with Ulsan Hyundai, the leader of the K-League 1. This is the result achieved after changing the Kim Jin-kyu acting manager system. Gwangju FC defeated Suwon Samsung and jumped from 6th to 3rd place.

Seoul drew 2-2 with Ulsan in the 28th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 27th.

Seoul, which dramatically won 1 point, recorded 10 wins, 10 draws and 8 losses (40 points, 50 points), maintaining 5th place ahead of Incheon United (40 points, 33 points).

With 19 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses (61 points), Ulsan failed to widen the gap with Pohang Steelers (50 points) in second place.

As former head coach Ahn Ik-soo resigned and Kim Jin-kyu took over as acting manager, Seoul selected Choi Cheol-won and Ilyuchenko, who had not had a chance, as starters.

Ilyuchenko succeeded in opening the scoring in the ninth minute of the first half. Ilyuchenko calmly caught the ball after Ki Sung-yueng’s shot hit the opponent’s defense and finished it off with a right-footed shot.

In the 13th minute of the first half, Ulsan took out Hwang Jae-hwan and put in Lee Chung-yong to change the attack. After Lee Chung-yong entered, Ulsan brought the flow through a short pass, but could not score an equalizer.

As the second half began, Seoul put in Han Seung-gyu, Na Sang-ho, and Willian at the same time. Na Sang-ho and Han Seung-gyu attempted aggressive shooting from the beginning of the second half.

Ulsan launched a counterattack with Martin Adam and Lee Kyu-seong in the 13th minute of the second half, and Ju Min-gyu’s goal turned the game around in the 19th minute of the second half. Joo Min-kyu reacted quickly when the goalkeeper blocked Bako’s shot and pushed the ball in.스포츠토토

Ulsan reversed after 4 minutes. Seol Young-woo gave the ball to the front of the goal from the right flank, and Joo Min-gyu attempted a direct shot and scored a come-from-behind goal.

Seoul put Ji Dong-Won in the 32nd minute of the second half and increased the number of attacks by placing two players in the front line. In extra time in the second half, Willian’s goal equalized. Willian saved the team from defeat by passing three Ulsan defenders from the left flank and shooting to the other side.

Gwangju won 4-0 in their home match against Suwon held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium.

Gwangju jumped from 6th to 3rd with 11 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses (42 points), continuing an undefeated streak of 8 matches (3 wins, 5 draws). Suwon stayed in 11th place with 5 wins, 7 draws and 16 losses (22 points).

Gwangju, which increased the offensive from the start, took the lead with Lee Hee-gyun’s goal in the 17th minute. Then, 20 minutes later, Asani’s additional goal assisted by Thomas widened the gap to two goals.

Gwangju, which continued to attack even with a two-goal lead, cemented the victory with Um Ji-seong’s goal in the first minute of the second half. Um Ji-seong scored a goal with a right-footed shot in the 6th minute of the second half.
