Gimcheon Commerce travels to Incheon.

Gimcheon will host Incheon United in the 21st round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 on May 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Incheon Football Stadium. The Gimcheon Sangmu, who recorded their first three-game winning streak in the K League 1 in their last match against Daegu, will look to continue their winning streak by beating Incheon.

Gimcheon has faced Incheon twice this season. Once in the regular season and once in the Korea Cup. In the regular season, Gimcheon took a 2-0 lead before conceding two goals in the final minutes of the game to draw. In the Korea Cup, where they fielded a full roster of ninth-grade recruits, 토토사이트 they lost in penalty kicks after 120 minutes of extra time.

Gimcheon is in a good mood. After the loss to Gwangju FC in the 17th round, the team quickly regrouped. Most importantly, the team had a natural generation change, with seven players leaving and nine joining. Gangwon FC, Daejeon Hana Citizen, and Daegu FC were defeated one after another, setting the club’s K League 1 winning streak and record for most points. Most encouragingly, the team has kept clean sheets in its last two matches.

Incheon, on the other hand, is winless in seven matches. While Gimcheon Sangmu has four wins and one loss in five games in June, Incheon has drawn one and lost four. Furthermore, they are currently on a three-game losing streak.

Gimcheon saw the last game of their starting goalkeeper and U-22 reserve Kim Jun-hong, who has played in seven seasons. He can be replaced by Kim Dong-heon, who has played 65 games in the K League, but there were worries about the starting U-22 team. However, the performance of existing U-22 player Choi Ki-yoon and the emergence of ‘NEW 22’ Park Sang-hyuk will ease the starting U22 resources.

Choi has been on fire lately, scoring in two consecutive matches with a multi-goal performance against Daejeon and the game-winner against Daegu. He also scored a wedge goal off the bench against the Pohang Steelers in the Round of 16, giving him four goals this season.

There’s also a new U-22 resource. Nine-year-old Park Sang-hyuk, who joined the team in June, came off the bench in the last match against Daegu and scored his debut goal. Even before Choi Ki-yoon’s first goal, Park’s focused shot stood out. Coach Jung Jeong-yong also said of Park, “I’m looking forward to seeing him play as a new U-22 resource,” hinting at his future.
