Gwangju, led by coach Lee Jeong-hyo, won 2-0 in the away game against Ulsan Hyundai in the 29th round of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 3rd.

As a result, Gwangju, who went undefeated in 9 games, recorded 45 points and succeeded in jumping to 3rd place in the league. 1st place Ulsan (61 points) is being chased by Pohang (2nd place 53 points) by 8 points.

Gwangju wins against 1st place Ulsan with attacking soccer.

The home team Ulsan had Martin Adam up front in a 4-2-3-1 formation and Bako, Minhyuk Kim, and Rubiksson in the second line. Lee Dong-kyung and Lee Gyu-seong took charge of the midfield, the back four consisted of Lee Myung-jae, Kim Young-kwon, Jeong Seung-hyun and Seol Young-woo, and the goalkeeper gloves were Cho Hyun-woo.

Gwangju adopted 4-4-2. Lee Kun-hee – Becca’s top two, Ha Seung-woon, Lee Hee-gyun, Jeong Ho-yeon, and Kim Han-gil lined up in midfield. The defense was guarded by Lee Min-ki, Lee Soon-min, Ahn Young-gyu, and Doo Hyun-seok, and the goal was guarded by Kim Kyung-min.

Ulsan took the lead by calmly increasing possession from the back. However, Gwangju showed dynamic movement, strong pressure, and tenacity, and countered by setting the line high. This served as the foundation for Gwangju to score the first goal in the 17th minute of the first half.

Ha Seung-woon caused the opponent’s mistake in the midfield ball competition. As the ball flowed next to Jeong Seung-hyun, Lee Kun-hee, who penetrated from the penalty box, beat goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo and finished with his left foot.

Ulsan further strengthened its attack and increased the time it took to possess the ball in the Gwangju camp. Lee Myung-jae’s effective shots in the 29th minute and Barco’s effective shots in the 30th minute did not result in a goal. Gwangju replaced Lee Min-ki, who was injured, and replaced Aaron in the 35th minute of the first half.

Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo attempted to turn things around by substituting winger Eom Won-sang for Lee Dong-kyung at the start of the second half. However, Gwangju actually scored one goal early in the second half. In the 9th minute of the second half, Lee Hee-gyun’s shot bounced off the defense, and Becca’s fantastic right-footed strong shot from the front of the penalty box arc completely destroyed goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo.

Ulsan immediately switched to attack-oriented tactics by adding Ju Min-gyu and Lee Cheong-yong. However, they were unable to effectively break through Gwangju’s defense. Martin Adam’s header missed the goal in the 21st minute of the second half. When Ulsan brought in Boyanic, Gwangju also responded to Ulsan’s change by putting in Ohu-seong and Lee Sang-gi.

Ulsan had to swallow their disappointment in the 31st minute of the second half as Joo Min-gyu’s decisive header was blocked by goalkeeper Kim Kyung-min’s save. Eom Won-sang and Bako’s shots in the 38th and 41st minutes of the second half, respectively, were useless. Gwangju’s well-organized defense did not waver throughout the 90 minutes. In the end, it was Gwangju that caught the big fish during the Ulsan expedition.

Coach Lee Jeong-hyo leads Gwangju’s scary sensation

Gwangju rose to the top of K League 2 (second division) last season and was promoted to K League 1. But the outlook was not bright. There were no clear star players, and it was unclear whether the leadership of coach Lee Jeong-hyo, who was experiencing K-League 1 for the first time, would work.

Coach Lee Jeong-hyo doesn’t even use defensive soccer just because the team is a weak team. Rather, instead of avoiding back passes, the concept is organic passing and straight, yet fast attacking soccer. This tactic, which may seem reckless, is working perfectly and is bringing fresh air to the K-League.

So far, coach Lee Jeong-hyo’s soccer appears to have fully blossomed. They lost both of their previous two matches against Ulsan, the leader of the K-League this season, but successfully took revenge on this day. This is the first win against Ulsan in 8 years since the away game (1-0) on July 11, 2015.

In addition, Timo, a key defensive resource, left due to injury, Heo Yul and Asani were absent due to accumulated warnings, and Uhm Sung-seong, who plays the second line, was selected to the Olympic team. It was meaningful in that coach Lee Jeong-hyo was able to fight back and win against Ulsan even in a situation where many of the starting players were missing.

Gwangju, with its 12th win of the season, broke the record for the most wins in the club’s history in the first division. Above all, it is positive that Gwangju’s upward trend continues until the final round. With 4 wins and 5 draws in the last 9 games, they have long since forgotten how to lose. Gwangju, which has risen to 3rd place as of the 29th round, can now expect not only to advance to Final A but also to advance to the Asian Champions League (ACL).
