On the day when the K-League recorded the largest number of paid spectators, there were great matches such as ‘Gangwon disaster-Incheon theater goal-Lee Chang-geun’s good defense show’.

On a good day when the professional soccer K-League achieved its highest attendance record ever, great matches were held.

First, Gangwon FC succeeded in escaping from last place by catching their ‘powerful enemy’ Jeonbuk Hyundai. Gangwon won 3-1 after a bloody battle in the rain in the away game against Jeonbuk in the 30th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 16th.

With this, Gangwon broke a 3-game winless slump and recorded a season record of 4 wins, 12 draws, and 14 losses (24 points), pulling down Suwon Samsung (22 points), which had not yet played the 30th round, and rising from the bottom to 11th place.

Gangwon appears to be gradually coming out of its slump with two wins in the last five games. On the 12th of last month, they defeated leader Ulsan Hyundai 2-0.

On the other hand, Jeonbuk Hyundai has fallen into a deep slump, failing to achieve even a single win in the last five games. In the last 5 games, they had 3 draws and 2 losses. It seems that they are gradually being pushed out in the competition for leadership. Currently, Jeonbuk has 12 wins, 7 draws, 11 losses, and 43 points and is ranked 5th in the league.

Jeonbuk had a good start. Kicker Gustavo calmly kicked the penalty kick earned by Kyo-Won Han in the 5th minute of the first half.

But Gangwon did not waver. Gangwon’s Brazilian players took turns shooting, threatening the opponent’s goal.

In the end, Gangwon scored an equalizer in extra time in the first half. Gabriel, who caught the ball in the penalty arc, hit a sensational shot that hit the net. Even though the shooting preparation movement was not great, he was able to hit a good shot using only his ankle strength.

Gangwon, who had set the tone, made a comeback even before the end of the first half. After cutting off Jeonbuk’s attack, they quickly switched to a counterattack. Afterwards, Gallego, who received Yago’s pass, fired a powerful shot and scored an additional goal.스포츠토토

In the second half of the season, the rain intensified, and the stadium was filled with water, making it difficult to conduct the game normally. However, Gangwon’s concentration shone. In the 30th minute of the second half, Kim Dae-won scored an additional goal to make it 3-1. Daewon Kim’s shot hit the defense and was deflected. Jeonbuk goalkeeper Jeong Min-ki also couldn’t do anything.

In the end, Gangwon picked up three precious points and continued their fight to escape the relegation zone.

Also, in Incheon, where the game between Incheon United and Jeju United was held, a dramatic drama unfolded with the winning goal scored in extra time in the second half.

The main character of victory was Incheon. In the second half of extra time when the score was 1-1, Incheon striker Hernández fired a mid-range gun like a clothesline to lead the team to victory. Hernández roared, and the Incheon fans also cheered as if they were confident of victory.

Incheon, who eventually won 2-1, recorded 11 wins, 10 draws, and 9 losses (43 points) and rose to 6th place in the league. Jeju, ranked 9th, had 9 wins, 8 draws, and 13 losses (35 points).

Pohang Steelers defeated Suwon FC 2-0 thanks to multiple goals from team striker Jeka. Second-place Pohang has 15 wins, 11 draws, and 4 losses (56 points), further narrowing the gap with leader Ulsan Hyundai (62 points).

On this day, Ulsan drew 1-1 with Daejeon Hana Citizen at home. This was also a thrilling match.

Considering the content of the game, it is a disappointing result for Ulsan. In the 38th minute of the second half when the score was 1-1, Ulsan Bako scored a fantastic volley, but offside was declared before that. Bako’s goal was also not recognized. In extra time in the second half, Joo Min-gyu missed a penalty kick. Joo Min-gyu’s shot was blocked by the goalkeeper. On this day, Joo Min-gyu scored his 14th goal and rose to first place in the league’s scoring category, but bowed his head after missing a penalty kick at the last minute.

On the other hand, Daejeon goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun, who blocked it, became a hero. On this day, Lee Chang-geun recorded 4 saves and protected the team goal. Daejeon, ranked 8th, has 9 wins, 11 draws, and 10 losses (38 points).

Meanwhile, K League 1 broke the record for the largest number of spectators in a single season since 2018, when it began counting only paid spectators.

The Korea Professional Football League announced on the 16th, “As of 3:30 p.m. on this day, a total of 1,837,901 paid spectators attended 176 games.” As a result, K League 1 recorded the largest number of spectators in a single season since it began counting paid spectators in 2018.

The previous highest attendance in a single season was 1,827,601 for a total of 228 games in 2019.

This year, the season is not over yet. It is expected that more spectators will attend in the future. On this historic day, K-League players also repaid the enthusiastic support of their fans by putting up a great match.
