Incheon beat Daejeon 3-1 thanks to multi-goal Kim Bo-Seop…first win in six games

Professional football K League One side Incheon United broke out of their slump with a multi-goal performance from Kim Bo-seop.

Incheon defeated Daejeon Hana Citizen 3-1 away from home in the 16th round of the 2023 K League 1 at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on 4 April. The victory paves the way for Incheon, who had drawn two and lost three of their last five league games, to leapfrog into mid-table. Incheon (18 points, 17 goals) are level on points with ninth-placed Suwon FC (18 points, 18 goals), but remain 10th on goal difference. Daejeon (22 points) dropped one place to sixth after failing to win or draw in their last four league games.메이저사이트

Incheon took the lead in the 38th minute through foreign striker Mpoku, before Kim Bo-seop’s one-man show in the second half. After scoring a goal in the third minute of the second half to make it 1-0, Kim scored the winner in the 32nd minute to make it 2-1. Daejeon managed to pull one back in the 14th minute from a free-kick by Joo Se-jong.

At DGB Daegu Bank Park in Daegu, home side Daegu FC defeated FC Seoul 1-0. With three wins and two draws in their last five matches, Daegu (24 points) continued their upward trend, moving up to fifth place. Seoul (27 points), who played a goalless game for the first time this season, remained in third place.

Seoul were unable to create a decisive scoring chance despite holding a commanding 74 per cent-26 per cent advantage in first-half ball possession. Daegu, on the other hand, found that the defensive tactics prepared by head coach Choi Won-kwon worked against the stronger teams. Daegu constantly troubled the Seoul defence with their tight defence and counter-attacks led by ace Sejingya. After missing around a month due to injury, Sejingya returned to action against Incheon in Round 14 and opened the scoring for the first time in over 40 days.

Sejingya rattled the net with a right-footed shot in the 14th minute after trapping a pass from Go Jae-hyun on the left. It was Sejingya’s fourth goal of the season. Meanwhile, so far this season, K League 1 has attracted 1,049,669 spectators, setting a new record for the lowest number of matches (96) since the introduction of the relegation system.
