Grab Daejeon and go to the top ranks.. The key is to revive scoring power

Professional soccer club Gwangju FC, which has been on a roll since its promotion to the first division, returns to action tomorrow (April 4) at home in Gwangju after a break.

The key to victory will be how the team recovers from its recent scoring slump.

Only one point separates fifth-place Gwangju, which has 34 points, from sixth-place Daejeon.

The outcome of this match could change the standings, so expect an all-out battle from both teams.

Gwangju has nine wins, nine draws and 10 losses against Daejeon in the all-time series, but since Lee Jung-hyo took over as head coach last season, the teams have met six times and are unbeaten with two wins and four draws.

The key to this matchup will be how much Gwangju’s goal-scoring prowess, which has been lackluster of late, picks up.

Gwangju have been playing some scorching attacking football this season, averaging 1.21 goals per game, but that has halved to 0.6 goals per game in their last five matches.

“We’re playing well, but we’re a little bit timid in the final third (offensive zone) and we’re not playing aggressively, so I think that’s why we had trouble scoring.”

With the team playing a season with a thinner roster 토토 than most, the two weeks of honeyed rest will do wonders for their strength.

As the battle for mid-table continues, fans will be eager to see if Gwangju can pull away from Daejeon and take a foothold in the top half of the table.
