Jeonbuk beat Gwangju 4-0 in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonbuk on the afternoon of the 28th. As a result, Jeonbuk, who lost 0-2 in the K-League 1 expedition to Gwangju on the 24th, immediately succeeded in revenge.
It was also an undefeated march at home against Gwangju (10 wins, 1 draw). Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu, who lost in his debut game, also won the match in two matches.
Coach Petrescu did not care about the K-League 1 and started with full force. With Cho Kyu-seong as the one-top player in the front line, the midfield lineup consisted of Song Min-gyu, Moon Seon-min, Ryu Jae-moon, and Amano Jun. Kim Moon-hwan, who was unable to play due to injury, started as a left fullback.
Jeonbuk faced Gwangju with quick attacks followed by pressure from the start of the game. However, it struggled with Gwangju’s tactics, which were down to defense. Even if he passed the ball in front of the goal through the defense, it did not lead to a perfect shot.
In the 13th minute of the second half, the opening goal that Jeonbuk had been waiting for came. Moon Seon-Min tried to break through from the left and then crossed low into the goal. The Gwangju defense missed the ball and Song Min-gyu shook the net with a light right-footed shot. After scoring the goal, Song Min-gyu was hugged by coach Petrescu and enjoyed the joy.
In the 16th minute of the second half, Jeonbuk, who stole the ball from the opponent’s defense, quickly counterattacked, and Kim Moon-hwan passed to Cho Kyu-seong, who had no mark in front of the goal. Cho Kyu-Sung’s shot went right in front of the opposing goalkeeper. However, two minutes later, Kyu-Sung Cho made up for it with a penalty kick. He calmly finished the penalty kick, which he took directly from the opponent’s defense, with his right foot.
In the 23rd minute of the second half, Jun Amano stepped up. Song Min-gyu raised the ball from the right and turned it with his right foot in front of the goal, scoring the third goal.
In the 27th minute of the second half, Jeonbuk, who had the chance to win, took out Jun Amano and put in Baek Seung-ho, who had just returned from injury, to check the performance. Moon Seon-min, who complained of leg pain in the 36th minute of the second half, was also replaced by Lee Dong-jun.
In the 43rd minute of the second half, Lee Dong-jun quickly broke through the right flank and raised a low cross. Cho Kyu-seong, who was in front of the goal, sensibly touched the ball with his right heel. The ball hit the opponent’s defense and went into the goal. In the end, Jeonbuk finished the game with a complete home win without conceding a single goal.
