Seongnam FC is quietly maintaining its upward trend.

Seongnam FC drew 2-2 with Kim Cheon in the 12th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023’ held at Tancheon Sports Complex at 6:30 pm on the 7th. Seongnam, who earned 1 point, maintained 7th place in the league and went undefeated in 3 games.

It was the last game of a three-game series played in a tight schedule. Seongnam returned home after winning 1 win and 1 draw in Seoul E-Land FC메이저놀이터 and Gimpo FC expeditions, and called Gimcheon home to play the last game of the 3 consecutive matches.

It was expected to be the toughest match of the three consecutive matches. Concerns about physical strength were inevitable, and the difference in power with Kimcheon also played a role. Kim Cheon’s nickname is ‘Real Kim Cheon’. It is a nickname that combines Real Madrid and Kimcheon, the prestigious Spanish La Liga and world-class clubs. Real Madrid is famous for its star squad, and it is also a nickname that came about because Kim Cheon’s squad is just as splendid as Real Madrid. Like Real Madrid, most of Kimcheon’s individual skills are top-notch in the K-League 2.

On the other hand, Seongnam has many players who have been pushed out of the competition for starting positions within their former team. Prior to the match, head coach Lee Ki-hyung said, “When comparing Seongnam and Gimcheon players, Seongnam players are inferior in individual skills, but try to gain the upper hand as much as possible in one-on-one situations and attack Gimcheon as a team. An opportunity will come.”

As if breaking coach Lee Ki-hyung’s promise, Kim Cheon scored the first goal. In the 11th minute of the first half, Kim Ji-hyun stabbed the ball deep under the half line, and Kim Min-jun, who was penetrating into the back space, received it and finished it calmly in a one-on-one situation. Seongnam had several equalizer opportunities, but could not save them, so they went into the locker room with regret.

Coach Lee Ki-hyung threw the number of wins. At the beginning of the second half, three replacement cards were used. Shin Jae-won, Kim Hoon-min, and Kim Hyeon-tae were left out, and Jeong Han-min, Lee Ji-hoon, and Park Sang-hyuk came in. Seongnam’s equalizer in the early hours. Park Sang-hyeok’s corner kick was headed by Patrick to split the net. Afterwards, Seongnam conceded a goal to Kim Dong-hyeon and allowed them to take the lead again, but Jeong Han-min equalized the score.

After Jeong Han-min’s equalizer, the game was tight. Kimcheon seemed to be pushing, but Seongnam’s counterattack using the side was also sharp. However, the match ended in a 2-2 draw. 

Seongnam finished the tough three-game series with a record of 1 win and 2 draws. In particular, it is encouraging that they won a series of draws against Gimpo and Gimcheon, who are ranked 1st in the league, and Gimcheon, who is the best in K-League 2. Seongnam continues to rise quietly.
