Soon after, an incident occurred that became a big variable in the flow of the game. Jeonnam right wingback Asnawi kicked the shin of the opponent’s right foot while fighting for the ball with Gyeongnam midfielder Lee Kang-hee in a defensive situation. Soon after Cho Sang-jun’s right-footed strong shot, the scene seemed to be buried, but referee Kim Do-yeon, who received the VAR signal, confirmed the situation through an on-field review and handed out a red card to Asnawi.
Due to Asnawi’s departure, Jeonnam’s performance was immediately adversely affected. When things went badly, coach Lee tried to change the atmosphere with a replacement card. In the 32nd minute of the first half, Kim Gun-oh was removed and Valdivia, who performed well in the match against Anyang, was put in to change the flow. Since then, the Jeonnam offense has been revived little by little. Jeonnam opened the door with Plana’s left-footed mid-range shot in the 36th minute of the first half, and Cho Sang-jin, who took over Valdivia’s right cross just before the end of the first half, had a chance to score in front of the Gyeongnam goal, but unfortunately the defense blocked it.
At the start of the second half, Jeonnam reinforced their offense by putting in 2m giant striker Simovic. I was able to continue the good atmosphere at the end of the first half. In the 5th minute of the second half, Valdivia displayed her individual skill and aimed for the corner of the Gyeongnam goal with a sensuous right-footed kick from the center of the arc, but unfortunately missed. Three minutes later, Plana’s left-footed strong shot from the right side of the box led to bad luck for Gyeongnam goalkeeper Koh Dong-min.메이저놀이터

Gyeongnam widened the score gap by scoring an additional goal in the 15th minute of the second half. Director Seol Ki-hyun’s replacement card shined. When Castro attempted a penetrating pass from the outside of the box to the left square inside the box, Won Ki-jong, who dug into the space, scored the second goal with a left-footed shot.
In the 17th minute of the second half, Mo Jae-hyeon, whose morale had risen, tried to score more goals by sending a menacing mid-range shot from the outside of the box into the Gyeongnam goal.
