Incheon United’s combination of “Genandez (Germany + Hernandez)” broke out side by side.
Incheon won 2-0 by bringing Daejeon Hana Citizen home in the 23rd round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at Incheon Football Stadium on 안전토토사이트 the 16th. After catching Ulsan Hyundai, the “leading” just before, he continued his first consecutive win of the league this season by ringing the winning streak to this day. It is the first time in 323 days that Incheon has won consecutive league titles since the match against Jeonbuk (3-1 win) in August last year.
Incheon, which has 30 points, tied Jeju United (30 points, 31 goals) in eighth place. However, he fell behind in multiple goals (25 goals) and remained in ninth place.
Daejeon fell into a swamp of six consecutive games (6 draws and 1 loss). In a fierce battle for the middle rank, he remained in seventh place (30 points) without securing points.
In the first half, the two teams carefully explored their opponents. In the 7th minute of the first half, Jerso rushed into the box, which Mpoku exquisitely spilled with a heel pass, but the defender cleared it first.
The fight in the midfield was fiercer as we went to the middle. The ball headed to each other’s final third-party area, but it was not finished. Incheon made a change in the 6th minute of the first half by excluding Kim Min-seok and putting Hernandez in. Hernandez energized the attack as soon as he came in, poking a penetration pass to Gersault.
In the 37th minute of the first half, Incheon quickly entered the Daejeon penalty box with a short pass play. Hernandez, Gerso, and Mpoku caught the ball in the box but failed to hit the shot.
The total number of shots by the two teams in the first half was four. Incheon hit one shot, and Daejeon connected two of the three shots with effective shots, but failed to open the goal.
Daejeon deployed Shin Sang-eun and Kim In-kyun at the beginning of the second half. Incheon sought an opportunity as Hernandez and Gersault dug into the back space of Daejeon. In the second half of the second half, Gersault received Kim Joon-yeop’s one-touch pass from the side of the right penalty box and tried to shoot, but it did not lead to a goal.
Incheon hit a sharp shot in the 8th minute of the second half. Gersault dropped a long ball from the half-line to Mpoku with a header. When Mpoku caught the ball, Gersault instantly dug into the penalty box. Gersault, who received Mpoku’s pass, hit a shot, but it came up on the postbar. The offensive lines of Jerso, Mpoku and Hernandez played a short pass play.
In the 12th minute of the second half, Gersault caught the ball from the back of the half-line to the front using instantaneous speed from the left side. He crossed for Hernandez at the gate, but it didn’t lead to a goal. In the 25th minute of the second half, goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun caught Gersso’s header following Kim Do-hyuk’s cross first.
Daejeon, which had difficulty in developing the attack compared to the first half, had a chance after putting in Tiago in the second half. He prepared a corner kick with an exquisite backspace penetration. Incheon also quickly launched a counterattack process. Hernandez, who received Lee Myung-joo’s pass in the 27th minute of the second half, stabbed a penetration pass into the back space with two defenders. Lee Myung-joo, who returned, crossed into the penalty box but failed to aim for the goal.
Incheon pushed to the end. In the 37th minute of the second half, Gersault, who received Kim Joon-yeop’s penetration pass from the right side in the box, rented Kim Dae-jung at the gate but escaped. However, the first goal was scored immediately. A minute later, Kim Do-hyuk passed to Hernandez on the left side. In response, Gerso, who was waiting at the gate, slightly touched Hernandez’s pass and shook the net. It is his third goal of the season after six league games. Following the previous match against Ulsan, it is the “Genandez” combination that broke out for two consecutive games.
In the extra time of the second half, Hernandez even scored a goal. As a result, Incheon continued its atmosphere by winning its first consecutive victory of the season.
