Hong Hyun-seok goes out to advance to the next round.
Gent will play the Round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa Conference League (UECL) in the 2022-23 season with Istanbul Basaksehir at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey at 2:00 am (Korean time) on the 16th. The first leg was a 1-1 draw.
Gent, played by Hong Hyun-seok, was in Group F of the UECL, and finished second in the group behind Jurgarden, making it to the tournament playoffs. The opponent was Karabakh. After losing 0-1 in the first leg, Gent made it 1-0 in the second leg and took it to overtime. The result was decided in a penalty shootout and won 5-3 to advance to the round of 16. Now it’s time to face Basaksehir.
A goal was conceded to Stefano Okaka, but Gift Orban equalized and the match ended 1-1. Now we will go to Istanbul and play the second leg. The atmosphere has been raised by winning 6-2 in the previous league game. Hong Hyun-seok will play an important role. Hong Hyun-seok moved from LASK Linz to Gents this summer, and he started right away. 메이저사이트
The position is solid throughout the season. He appeared in 26 matches in the Belgian Jupiler League and played 2,129 minutes. He made an impression, recording 5 goals and 6 assists. In the UECL, he played 9 games (700 minutes), including the playoffs, and scored 1 goal and 2 assists. If you combine all official matches, it is 8 goals and 8 assists in 40 games. Based on the soccer statistics media ‘WhoScored.com’, the average score (7.05 points) is 2nd among players who have played at least 10 games.
It is Hong Hyun-seok who is clearly responsible for the midfield of Gent and is raising his value. Hong Hyun-seok, who performed well by starting in the round of 16 playoff against Karabakh and the first leg of the round of 16 against Basaksehir, plans to start in the second leg as well. Hong Hyeon-seok’s sharp passing and progressiveness are essential for Ghent.
At the pre-press conference, coach Hein van Hazerbruk said, “Basaksehir is a strong team. I expected an equal match, but it ended 1-1. It’s not a perfect situation. I’m thinking about overtime and penalty shootouts,” he said, revealing his feelings about the game.
