In Jeonnam’s ‘crisis moment’, Yoo Ji-ha once again stepped up to solve the problem.
In the 22nd minute of the second half, Yujiha redirected a free kick sent by Valdivia from the right side of the penalty area to his right foot in front of the goal area, scoring his second goal and becoming the blue bird of Jeonnam’s victory. Scored 2 goals from set piece situations.
Jeonnam’s Lee Yong-jae scored the winning goal in the 50th minute of the second half, and Mo Jae-hyun scored a multiple goal in the 52nd minute of the second half for Gyeongnam, but there was not enough time to turn the game around.
