In the game where there was no goal, the first goal was unexpectedly in the 43rd minute of the first half. In Daegu, who got a free kick from the left side of the Gangwon camp, Sejinya crossed the cross. Kangwon Kim Soo-beom tried to kick the ball down with his head, but rather went into the goal and scored absurdly.
Gangwon, who finished the first half with 0-1, replaced a large number of players in the second half to attack, but eventually failed to hunt for the goal and ended the game without points.
Pohang Steelers and Gwangju FC played at Pohang Steel Yard in Gyeongbuk, where Pohang won a dramatic 1-0 victory in the home.
In the 43rd minute corner in the second half of Pohang, Song Min-gyu pushed the ball into the head. With this goal, Song Min-gyu is the 7th goal in the season and has set a record of scoring 5 goals only with his head.
In Pohang, in the second half of the extra time, Im Sang-hyup got a penalty kick and went directly to the kicker, but was blocked by the save of Yoon Bo-sang. In the end, Pohang endured Gwangju’s last attack and ended the game with 1-0.
