It was Pohang who struck first. In the 20th minute of the first half, while Pohang was pressing forward, Grant blocked the ball, and Aubertan stole the ball and gave a forward pass to Go Young-joon, who cut in from the left. Go effortlessly slotted the ball home with his left foot. Go scored his eighth goal of the season and Oberdan picked up his second assist.
Gwangju equalized through Timo in the 22nd minute of the second half. Lee Soon-min’s cross from the right sailed over the defense. Timo, who was near the opponent’s arc, didn’t let go and scored with a powerful right-footed shot. It was Timo’s third goal of the season and Lee’s first assist.
From there, the scoring continued to heat up for both teams. Grant’s header hit the post and Kim Jong-woo missed a no-mark chance. Gwangju also had a shot saved by Kim Han-gil after a counterattack utilizing the flanks. However, neither team could find the back of the net and the points were shared. 안전카지노사이트
