‘As expected’ Mourinho, Rome quarterfinals… ‘Fighted well’ Hong Hyun-seok, finishes his journey in the quarterfinals

AS Roma, led by coach Jose Mourinho, reached the semifinals of the Europa League after an extended struggle.

Roma defeated Feyenoord 4-1 after an extended fight in the second leg of the 2022-23 European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) quarterfinals held at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy on the 21st (Korean time). After losing 0-1 in the first leg, Roma reversed the score 4-2 on aggregate and took a ticket to the semi-finals.

Roma, who desperately needed an opening goal after losing the first game, achieved their goal in the second half. A long throw attack in the 15th minute of the second half led to a confusion before the gate. The ball flowed out and Leonardo Spinazzola shook the net with an exquisite shot.

A sense of crisis hung over Rome. In the 35th minute of the second half, a cross from the side was returned to the head by Igor Paixang. Roma, who was on the brink of elimination again, made a dramatic scene. In the 44th minute of the second half, Paulo Dybala, who turned fantastically inside the penalty box, bounced into the net with his left foot.

The total score was tied and the game went into overtime. In extra time, Roma dominated. The continued offensive has paid off. In the 11th minute of extra time, in a counterattack situation, Stefan El Sharawi fumbled Tammy Abraham’s cross and scored.

Roma put a wedge in the long game. In the 4th minute of the second half of extra time, Roma launched a counterattack again. Abraham’s shot was blocked by the goalkeeper, but Lorenzo Pellegrini added another goal with a powerful shot. An offside foul was pointed out, but the goal was recognized through video review (VAR). Roma had the advantage of leaving the opponent at the end of the game and succeeded in advancing to the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Hong Hyun-seok of KAA Gent finished his journey to European club competition. Gent lost 1-4 to West Ham United in the second leg of the quarterfinals of the 2022-23 UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) held at the London Stadium on the same day. After a draw in the first game, Gent lost 2-5 on the aggregate score and failed to advance to the semifinals.

Gent succeeded in scoring the first goal in enemy territory. In the 26th minute of the first half, Hong Hyeon-seok cut off the opponent’s pass, and Gent’s counterattack began. Hugo Kuipers, who was in front of the goal, pushed the ball that his teammate’s shot missed.

Ghent’s momentum was short-lived. In the 37th minute of the first half, Jerrod Bowen’s cross was finished with a header by Mikhail Antonio, who used his physical condition.

Hent, behind in objective power, showed its limitations in the second half. In the 10th minute of the second half, while suffering from West Ham’s offensive, he gave away a penalty for handball. Luis Paqueta, the kicker, finished calmly.

After giving up the lead, Hent collapsed rapidly. Three minutes later, in a counterattack situation, he gave Declan Rice a goal following a solo dribble. In the 18th minute of the second half, Antonio conceded an additional goal in a counterattack situation.

Hong Hyun-seok, who started the match that day, digested 70 minutes. According to ‘Pot Mob’, a soccer statistics media outlet,안전놀이터 Hong Hyun-seok recorded a pass success rate of 68%, 1 interception, 2 acquisitions, and a ground competition win rate of 40% (2/5).
