FC Anyang reported its first league win in nine games. They needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they managed to keep the flame alive by beating Seoul Eland FC.
Anyang and Seoul Eland faced off in the 37th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at the Anyang Sports Complex at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 28. The third meeting of the season ended in a victory for the home team. Anyang took the lead with Kim Dong-jin’s first goal in the third minute of the second half, followed by Gong Min-hyun’s 28th-minute strike and Kim Ha-joon’s late consolation goal in stoppage time to win 3-0.
Playing five in midfield, Seoul Eland stretched their backs and pressed Anyang as they narrowed their lines. Anyang utilized Yago and Joo Hyun-woo on the right flank to attack. Goalkeeper Kim Tae-hoon, who had been called upon in the previous round against Bucheon FC 1995 and this round against Seoul Eland, was the starting point for Anyang’s buildup.
In the 12th minute of the first half, Anyang capitalized on an opponent’s mistake. Ahn Yong-woo’s pass to Yago set up the attack. Seoul Eland was also active, trying to break down Anyang with short passes from the side.
Anyang’s offense continued in the 18th minute, with Kim Jung-hyun’s shot hitting the goal post and Park Jong-hyun’s mid-range shot hitting the side netting a minute later. Yago’s breakthrough with five defenders in front of him was enough to make the crowd gasp. In the 22nd minute, Anyang quickly went on the counterattack. Gong Min-hyun fired a shot into an empty net, but it was ruled out for offside.
Anyang brought on midfielder Moon Sung-woo in the second half to shake things up at the back, and the first attacking opportunity came just two minutes into the second half. Three minutes into the second half, the long-awaited goal finally came. Kim Dong-jin trapped the ball in midair with his chest, handled it, and floated it into the back of the net. Baek Dong-gyu was credited with the assist.토스카지노 주소
With momentum in their favor, Anyang pushed for another goal. After holding off Seoul Eland’s offense, Anyang extended its lead in the 28th minute of the second half with a goal from Gong Min-hyun. Joo Hyun-woo went down in the box after breaking between two defenders, but Gong Min-hyun remained focused and finished to make the score 2-0. Anyang players celebrated the goal with a dance celebration.
Anyang didn’t stop there. Substitute Kim Ha-joon scored in stoppage time to complete the 3-0 victory. The win over Seoul Eland gave Anyang a little more hope for the playoffs. With five points separating them from fifth-place Gyeongnam, it won’t be easy, but it’s not over until it’s over.
