Will Gwangju catch Incheon and achieve its dream of becoming an ‘AFC Champions League elite’?

Will Gwangju FC continue its upward trend in two consecutive home games?

Gwangju will play a home game against Incheon United in the 35th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium located in Gwangju at 4:30 pm on the 28th.

Recently, the flow in Gwangju is at its peak. In the 34th round home game against leader Ulsan Hyundai, Lee Kun-hee’s winning goal resulted in a 1-0 win짱구카지노. With 3 consecutive wins, they are maintaining 3rd place and can advance to AFC Champions League 2.

It is a situation where they can also challenge for elite participation in the AFC Champions League. Gwangju has a 2-point gap with second-place Pohang Steelers, and if Gwangju catches Incheon and Pohang loses to Jeonbuk Hyundai in this round, the rankings will be reversed.

Gwangju was strong in the Incheon match. Since coach Lee Jeong-hyo took office, the team has recorded 2 wins and 2 draws, including the FA Cup. In particular, in their second win, they scored 6 and 5 goals, respectively.

The Incheon killers are Asani and Lee Hee-gyun. Asani led the team to a 5-0 victory with a hat trick in the home match on March 18. On August 18th, the team scored a consolation goal to tie the score dramatically at 2-2. Asani is currently showing off his improved performance, even scoring in the Albania-Czech Republic match in the UEFA Euro qualifiers in October.

Lee Hee-gyun also scored his K-League debut goal against Incheon. He scored a goal in the 5-0 win in March. He assisted Lee Kun-hee’s winning goal against Ulsan in the last round, when he was returning from injury. His performance improved along with his confidence.

The defense, which had gaps, is even more solid. Kim Seung-woo, who started as a starter after a long time, showed off his defensive skills against Ulsan’s powerful offense. Goalkeeper Lee Jun is filling Kim Kyung-min’s gap well with saves at critical moments. Captain and defensive core Ahn Young-gyu also returns from accumulated warnings. The defense is expected to become more solid.

Incheon is currently competing in the K League 1 as well as the FA Cup and AFC Champions League, making it difficult to fully focus on the Gwangju match. Gwangju plans to attack Incheon with physical strength, strong pressure, and dynamic attack power. Attention is being paid to whether Gwangju will continue its undefeated record against Incheon and take another step toward the Asian stage.
