K-League 2 1st and 2nd place Gimcheon Sangmu and Gimpo FC collide head-on.
Gimcheon and Gimpo will face off in the 10th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ at Gimcheon Sports Complex on the 30th. Kimcheon is in the lead with 6 wins and 2 losses. Gimpo is undefeated with 5 wins and 3 draws. The two teams are tied with 18 points, but Kimcheon (14 goals) ranks first ahead of Gimpo (13 goals) in terms of points.
Kim Cheon was considered a strong candidate for the championship even before the season. I lost 2 times in a row, but I am on a 4-game winning streak. The performance has definitely been revived. Striker Kim Ji-hyun scored 2 goals in the last 3 matches, and midfielder Kwon Chang-hoon is also recovering his form with 2 goals and 1 assist during the same period. During the 4-game winning streak, he scored 9 goals while conceding only 2 goals. The defense is also stable.
Gimpo is running on an upward trajectory at the beginning of the season, breaking expectations. Gimpo is on a three-game winning streak. They defeated Busan I-Park (1-0 win) and FC Anyang (2-1 win) in succession. In particular, foreign strikers such as Luis, Pablo, and Juninho recruited by Gimpo this season are showing firepower beyond expectations. In particular, Gimpo plays high-efficiency soccer. Gimpo’s shots per game are 11th, 10th. However, the number of effective shots per game is 5, which is tied for second place with Kim Cheon. This means that 1 out of 2 shots is a valid shot. In addition, Gimpo conceded only 4 goals in 8 games, ranking first in terms of least goals. ㅋㅋㅋ벳
If Kim Cheon wins, Pajuk’s 5-game winning streak will solidify his lead at the beginning of the season. On the other hand, if Gimpo adds 3 points from the away game, they can catch the top teams in a row and ride an uncontrollable upward trend. Attention is focusing on whether Kimcheon will be able to break off Gimpo’s undefeated march, and whether Gimpo will swallow up even Kimcheon and lead the fight for the lead.Gyeongnam FC, the only K-League 2 undefeated team along with Gimpo, will face Cheonan City FC, the lowest ranked team. Gyeongnam has 4 wins and 4 draws in 8 matches. In the previous game against Chungnam-Asan, Park Min-seo’s dramatic equalizer in the second half of extra time, when the loss was dark 1-2, avoided defeat. It is also an advantage of Gyeongnam that the score distribution is even. Cheonan has yet to win with 1 draw and 7 losses in 8 matches. It was the first time they had scored against Ansan Greeners (1-1 draw). The score (4 goals) is the lowest, and the number of goals (19) remains at 12th. Cheonan has not been able to score a goal in a single game.
