Gwangju is determined to forget the disappointing result and continue to play Gwangju’s own soccer and give victory to home fans in the last game of the first round robin. Gwangju’s fierce attack against strong teams awaits. Along with youth players such as Um Ji-seong, Heo Yul, and Lee Hee-kyun, attackers such as Asani and Lee Kun-hee continue to perform well.
Sandro, the main gun, adjusted his condition through rest, and midfielder Lee Kang-hyun scored his debut goal in Gwangju and boosted his confidence.
