Busan snatches K League 2 title with stoppage-time equalizer from the jaws of victory

Busan I-Park’s dreams of winning its first-ever professional soccer K League 2 title were dashed in the last minute by a ‘narrow miss’.On the afternoon of the 26th, Busan drew 1-1 with Chungbuk Cheongju after conceding an equalizer from Thul just before the end of the final 39th round home match of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Busan Asiadju Stadium.In a match played around the same time, Gimcheon Sangmu beat Seoul Eland 1-0 to dramatically take the lead in the final minute of the season, ending Busan’s dreams of winning their first ever K League 2 title.Busan, which finished the season with 20 wins, 10 draws and six losses (70 points), eventually fell behind Gimcheon (22 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses – 71 points), which earned a direct ticket to the first division for the K League 2 winner. After finishing the regular season in second place, Busan will now try again for promotion to the top flight through the promotion playoffs (PO).Busan was promoted in 2019, when they also went through the PO, finishing second.With the score tied at 0-0, Busan had a golden opportunity in the 35th minute.Choi Jun sent a cross into the box from the right flank, where Kim Chan rushed in and connected with a powerful diving header.

The shot was headed straight at the goalkeeper, but its power forced Jung Jin-wook to make a difficult save and it fell in front of Lamas, whose follow-up shot went well over the crossbar.With the offense unresolved, Park brought on striker Park Dong-jin at the start of the second half and midfielder Kang Sang-yoon in the 13th minute to increase the intensity of the forward pressure in an attempt to turn things around.Busan hit the ground running in the 22nd minute. Kang Sang-yoon sent a cross that Eo Jung-won finished with a precise header that hit the post.However, a minute later, Pesin scored the game-winning goal to erase the disappointment. After intercepting a misplaced pass from Jeong Jin-wook, Ramas stabbed in a penetrating pass, and Pesin sent the home fans into a frenzy with a cool left-foot finish.Chungbuk Cheongju, who lost possession of the ball as Busan upped the ante, didn’t have much of a chance until the middle of the second half.After the 40th minute, Busan began to ‘solidify’ by calling most of their players to the penalty box except for Kim Chan in the front line, and it looked like they were going to keep the clean sheet with their physical defense.However, just before the end of the game, a cross from the right flank was sent in by George, who overcame defense and pressure and kicked it in from a difficult position to dramatically 무료슬롯게임 equalize, and Busan’s championship dreams were dashed.
