Thiago of Daejeon Hana Citizen in the professional soccer K League 1 scored a hat-trick and became the top scorer. However, after exchanging 7 goals with the 2nd place Pohang Steelers, Daejeon failed to enter the 6th place by kneeling.
Daejeon lost 3-4 in the K-League 1 2023 round 27 away match held at Pohang Steel Yard on the 20th. Pohang has been undefeated in 6 consecutive games (3 wins, 3 draws) and accumulated 49 points to solidify its second place. This season, they continued their advantage against opponents with 2 wins and 1 draw. In the 26th round against FC Seoul, Daejeon, which had a slugfest and won 4-3, however, failed to maintain its momentum and stayed in 7th place (36 points).
In the 41st minute of the first half and the 6th minute of the second half, Daejeon was hit with a header goal by Jeka in the situation of Wandelsson’s cross and Kim Seung-dae’s cross. Daejeon gave up an additional goal to Kim Seung-dae in the 31st minute of the second half, and the loss was dark.스포츠토토
However, the potential of Daejeon wriggled at the last minute. In the 35th minute of the second half, Thiago connected Byeong-Gwan Jeon’s cross with a header to score the chase goal, and 3 minutes later he received Byung-Kwan Jeon’s pass again and scored a surprising goal with a right-footed outside shot from the right side of the penalty arc. Even at this point, it was unbelievable, but with 8 minutes of extra time in the second half, Thiago shook the net again with a header from Jeon Byeong-gwan’s cross in the 6th minute of extra time. Thiago completed a hat-trick in the 16th minute and quickly tied the score.
However, the joy of Daejeon was short-lived. Daejeon collapsed after allowing the winning goal two minutes later. Pohang striker Hong Yoon-sang, who debuted on the K-League stage as a substitute in the 35th minute of the second half, connected Kim Seung-dae’s cross with a header that slightly changed direction into the goal in the 8th minute of extra time to put an end to the game. Tiago, who scored 12 goals in the season, rose to the top scorer alone, overtaking Joo Min-gyu, Bako (Ulsan Hyundai), and Na Sang-ho (Seoul), who have been standing still with 11 goals for a long time.
