The K-League 1’s early season rankings are split at the ‘back door’. Due to the nature of the goalkeeper position, one mistake leads to a goal. Teams with loose back doors are in a situation where they have to fight themselves.
A representative example is Jeonbuk Hyundai, which placed 7th (2 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses, 7 points). The reasons for the early season in a ranking unlike Jeonbuk are complex, but the goalkeeper problem that arose after the transfer of Song Bum-geun (26, Shonan Bellmare) cannot be left out. In the opening match against rival Ulsan Hyundai on February 25 (1-2 loss), Kim Jeong-hoon (21) made a trapping mistake and gave up the winning goal. Afterwards, Jeong Min-ki (27) put on the starting glove, but in the 4th round match against Daegu FC on the 19th of last month, he allowed the opening goal due to a catching mistake and lost 0-2.
It is in contrast to the fact that rival Ulsan is running at the top (6 wins, 18 points) thanks to Jo Hyun-woo (32)’s great performance. According to Bpro Eleven, which specializes in soccer statistics, Cho Hyun-woo has a save rate of 81.8% this season, ranking first among goalkeepers who have played at least four games.
9th place (1 win, 2 draws, 3 losses, 5 points) Incheon United is also worried about the gatekeeper. Kim Dong-heon (26), who ranked first in the league as a leading scorer last season, collapsed this season with 10 runs in 4 games. His ERA was 79% last season, but this season he’s hovering around the bottom at 65.5%. Eventually, on the 18th of last month, after losing a lot of goals against Gwangju FC (0-5 loss), Lee Tae-hee (28) was given the starting glove.
On the other hand, most of the top teams are laughing at the goalkeeper’s performance. In particular, FC Seoul, which placed 3rd (4 wins, 2 losses, 12 points), recently became more stable as Baek Jong-beom (22) settled down as the main gatekeeper. At the beginning of the season, Choi Cheol-won (29), a transfer student, made mistakes in two consecutive games against Ulsan (1-2 loss) and Jeju United (2-1 win), and the team was shaken. So Osaka) is filling in the transfer void little by little. 토토사이트
4th place (3 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, 11 points) Daejeon Hana Citizen and 5th place (3 wins, 3 losses, 9 points) Gwangju, respectively, with Lee Chang-geun (30) and Kim Gyeong-min (32) firmly guarding the goal, ‘promoted team blast’ ‘ is causing In particular, Kim Kyung-min is in second place after Cho Hyun-woo with a 76.9% save rate, and is supporting Gwangju’s propaganda by ranking first in the number of aerial balls handled (10 times) and catching and punching times (20 times).
