The match, which drew attention due to the showdown between the third and fourth-place teams with 48 points, could not determine the outcome in the tight flow. Bucheon remained undefeated in six games and Gimpo remained in the rankings, satisfied with its unbeaten streak in three games.

Gimpo coach Ko Jung-woon, whom I met before the game, said, “Today’s game is very important. “I went to Yongin for five nights and six days during the break due to lack of living,” he said. Ko praised Bucheon’s performance. Coach Ko said, “I have been with coach Lee Young-min for a long time, and Bucheon is very good systematically. He gained confidence as he advanced to the playoffs last season. I can see that the team spirit is in place. So it doesn’t collapse easily. “We have the conditions of a strong team,” he said. “The advantage of Bucheon is the counter. They’ll hit us in the backspace and infiltrate. “We have nothing urgent to do, so we intend to protect it from behind,” he said.
The game is in the second half. Coach Ko said, “In the first half, Bae Jae-woo is quite active in defense. If I play a good role in the first half, I will put Juninho or Pablo in the second half to win the game. Compared to what I have, I’m also looking forward to Song Chang-seok, who hasn’t exploded yet,” he said.
Bucheon coach Lee Young-min said, “We are winning three consecutive games before the break, but the difference from below is not much wider. He said, “We are playing the league under a lot of tension, so the game is important on this day.” Coach Lee said, “Gimpo is a tricky team. It’s a team that plays really hard, so it’s not easy if anyone meets Gimpo, he said. “The situation can change depending on how you target Gimpo.” Gimpo did not respond well to what we prepared in the second showdown. “I think it will change a little depending on how the game is run every moment,” he said. Asked if he had prepared a special move, he smiled, saying, “Since we put mobility players in the front, it will be important how to pierce them.”
Regarding Ahn Jae-joon’s absence from the Asian Games, he said, “Jae-joon is an important player, but he was a serve until last year. “I hope there will be another star as big as Jae-joon,” he said with a smile. “I hope Kim Bo-yong, who started, or Kim Kyu-min, who sat on the bench, will come up while Jae-joon is not around.”
Both teams focused on not eating in the first half. He concentrated on strengthening his defense. In the process of counterattacking, the weight was placed on the back rather than increasing the number. In the 10th minute of the first half, Lupeta jumped in to catch the ball handed over by Neilson Jr. from the back. However, Kimpo’s defense was good. In the 14th minute, Nilsson Junier’s header hit the defense. Gimpo fired its first shot in the 25th minute of the first half. From a distance, Kim Jong-seok connected the free kick with a direct shot.
In the first half of the 36th minute, the closest scene to the goal came out for both teams. Kimpo’s Park Kwang-il scored a sharp corner kick from the right. Cho Sung-kwon connected nicely to the header. Goalkeeper Lee Bum-soo blocked it. Kim Tae-han jumped in for a rebound, but Lee Bum-soo blocked it again. Bucheon sought an opportunity with Jung Hee-woong’s wonderful breakthrough, but the finish was disappointing. Bucheon had one shot in the first half and no effective shot. Gimpo’s three shots were all connected to effective shots.
Both teams faced the second half without change. Gimpo fired first in the first minute of the second half. Kim Jong-seok’s cross from the right hit Lewis’ head. It was weak.

It failed to overcome the strong defense of both teams.

In the 45th minute of the second half, Kaz’s kick was connected by Neil Sonjunier with a header and a volley shot from the fallen ball, but it was far away. Lewis attempted a volley shot in a corner kick situation in Gimpo at the end. He got hit by the defense. The game ended in a 0-0 draw.
