‘Another draw’ Busan I-Park, Guduk home first win when…

K-League 2 Busan IPark drew for the second straight game at Guduk Stadium, leaving the team’s quest for its first win in Guduk to another day. The Busan club has failed to accumulate points in its last seven matches and remains in ninth place in the league.

Busan drew 2-2 at home against Bucheon FC in the 21st round of the 2024 K-League 2 at Guduk Stadium on the afternoon of the 6th. Busan dominated Bucheon in ball possession, 64%-36%, and shots, 19-11, but conceded an early goal on the counterattack and 토토사이트 추천 narrowly escaped with a draw.

Busan conceded the first goal in the first five minutes of the match to Bucheon Lupeta’s powerful right-footed shot. Busan then pushed Bucheon forward, and Lee Joon-ho scored an exquisite header in the 27th minute to level the score at 1-1. Lee Joon-ho, who joined the club on loan from Jeonbuk Hyundai, made a strong first impression on the home fans by scoring in his first game for the club.

However, Busan conceded another goal from Bucheon Park Homin in the 16th minute of the second half to fall back to 1-2. With the deficit deep, Busan scored a dramatic equalizer in the 32nd minute when Kwon Sung-yoon slid the ball in with his right foot after falling down in a scramble in front of the goal. Busan could not find the equalizer and had to settle for a draw.

With the draw, Busan hasn’t recorded a win in over a month and a half since mid-May. Since their 1-0 away win over Seongnam FC on May 19, Busan has only managed to accumulate four points from seven matches, with four draws and three losses.

At home, they haven’t won in over two months since beating Ansan Greeners 2-1 on April 27th. In the five games since then, they have only earned three points with three draws and two losses.

The only consolation is that they haven’t lost since moving to Guduk on April 29th. Busan also got off to a strong start last year, winning all three of their home games at Guduk during the month of August. This year, they will play all eight of their remaining home games at Guduk Stadium, so there is reason to be hopeful.

Meanwhile, Busan has been undergoing major changes in the summer transfer market, with strikers Lopez and Ahn Byung-joon, who struggled at the start of the season, recently leaving the team. Instead of sending Ahn to K-League 1 Suwon FC, the club signed Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors striker Lee Ho-joon on loan on April 4.

He then bolstered the midfield by swapping Jeonnam Dragons veteran midfielder Yuhei Sato (Japan) for Busan defender Alikulov (Uzbekistan).

After 21 matches this season, Busan is currently in ninth place out of 13 teams with 23 points (W6 D5 L8). This is a far cry from the same time last year, when the team was in contention for a playoff spot and climbed to the top of the league. “Our priority is to get back into the playoffs,” said Busan coach Park Jin-seop, adding that the team will focus on accumulating points in the remaining matches.
