Chengdu Rongcheng, led by head coach Seo Jeong-won, succeeded in going undefeated for 4 consecutive matches after the opening of the season by catching the Zhejiang Pro with former K-League Felipe and Kim Min-woo at the fore.
Chengdu 크크크벳won 2-0 in the 2023 Chinese Super League Round 4 match at Huzhou Olympic Sports Center on April 30. Chengdu easily won the away game in Zhejiang thanks to Felipe’s opening goal in the 24th minute of the first half and Kim Min-woo’s winning goal just before the end of the second half. With this victory, Chengdu recorded 2 wins and 2 draws (8 points), ranked 4th in the Chinese Super League and laid the foundation for the competition for the lead at the beginning of the season.
In this match, Felipe, who was the K-League 2 top scorer in the past as a member of Gwangju FC, had a unique presence. In the 26th minute of the first half, Felipe shook Gan Chao’s early cross from the right side with a header shot in the box, using his talent. In the 36th minute of the first half, Felipe broke through two defenders and shook the net, but unfortunately the goal was not recognized as he was judged offside by VAR in the previous scene. But throughout the game, Felipe had a tremendous influence on the attack, clearly distinguishing when to score in dangerous areas and when to make selfless plays.
At the end of the second half, when Jeojang’s pursuit became visible, Kim Min-woo’s goal broke. When Elkesson passed the ball he caught in the center of the box to Felipe, Felipe took over Ganruy, who was entering an overlap, and fired a grounder cross. Kim Min-woo, who was in a good position, lightly extended his left foot and shook the net. This is Kim Min-woo’s second goal this season.
In a meeting with <Best Eleven> during the field training in Korea in March last year, coach Seo expressed his intention to ensure that he will qualify for the next year’s AFC Champions League. It should be taken into account that it is still early in the season, but looking at the pace so far, it seems that the goal is not a lie. Chengdu is cruising.
