Professional soccer’s K League 2 FC Anyang defeated the Jeonnam Dragons 3-1 to move into third place in the standings, led by the duo of Yago and Bruno, who created ‘multiple attacking points’ side by side.
Anyang won 3-1 at home against Jeonnam in the 28th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Anyang Sports Complex on Sunday, thanks to Yago’s one goal and two assists and Bruno’s one goal and one assist.
Anyang, who were winless in their last two matches (one draw and one loss), jumped three places from sixth to third on goal difference with 42 points, ahead of Gyeongnam FC (40 points), Bucheon FC (34 points) and Gimpo FC (27 points), who are all on the same number of points.
On the other hand, Jeonnam (37 points), who tasted victory in the previous round, failed to capitalize on their winning streak and slipped to seventh place.
After fending off a strong attack from Jeonnam in the first half, Anyang took the lead in the 16th minute through Yago.
After exchanging one-on-one passes with Bruno, Yago penetrated to the right side of the goal area and rattled the net with a left-footed shot.
Anyang continued to pound away at Jeonnam’s goal, and in the 32nd minute, they added another goal after a “surprise” center break by left fullback Joo Hyun-woo.
After receiving a pass from Yago in the midfield, Joo quickly rushed to the Jeonnam goal and beat the goalkeeper with his right foot. Joo’s goal proved to be the winning goal.
Anyang broke down the Jeonnam defense in the fourth minute of the second half with a header from Bruno following a right-footed cross from Yago. Yago finished with one goal and two assists, while Bruno had one goal and one assist.
Jeonnam came from behind in the 26th minute when Valdivia’s right-footed free kick from the left side of the penalty area found the back of the net.
With his 12th goal of the season, Valdivia moved to within one goal of the top scorer, Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon, 13 goals).
In addition, Valdivia became the first K League 2 player to reach 20 offensive points (12 goals and 8 assists) this season. 토토사이트
