K League Wrap: Jeju drop a place after gripping clash with Seoul
By Football News
Jeju United slipped to fourth in the K League Classic after a pulsating 4-4 draw against Seoul at the Jeju World Cup Stadium.
Seoul, who drop to tenth after the result, were two goals ahead after 38 minutes thanks to Yo-Han Ko and Mauricio Molina, but Pedro Junior grabbed a goal back from the penalty spot 42 minutes in.
The Brazilian forward then scored two more after 48 and 58 minutes to put Jeju ahead, but there were more twists to come as Dejan Damjanovic equalised five minutes from time to spark a late goal rush from both sides.
Jin-Kyu Kim put the visitors ahead on 90 minutes from the penalty spot before Seo Dong-Hyeun ensured his side got a share of the spoils.
Things were much more straightforward for the K League's top three sides, who each gained victories, with leaders Pohang Steelers hitting four as they beat Daegu.
Two goals in two minutes from Chan-Ho Cho and Jin-Ho Shin got the hosts off to a good start, although Daegu drew level with second half efforts from Chang-Ho Song and Ji-Nam Lee after 54 and 69 minutes respectively.
The scores were level for just four minutes before Cho grabbed his second of the game with Chun-Suk Bae restoring the two-goal advantage in the final minute.
Ulsan moved into second place after hammering Gyeongnam 4-1 with Roberto getting the scoring underway after 12 minutes.
Sang-Woon Han made it two early in the second half before getting his second from the penalty spot on 68 minutes. Jae-An Lee pulled one back in the 89th minute but Woong Byun scored a minute later to round off a comfortable victory for Ulsan.
Incheon United took full advantage of Jeju dropping points with a 3-0 win over Busan I'Park, who drop to eighth.
Chun-Soo Lee set Incheon on their way to the three points with a 13th minute goal before second half goals from Seok-Hyun Lee and Thiago Elias wrapped the game up and moved Incheon into third.
None of the bottom three were able to take points in their fixtures as Daejeon Citizen and Gangwon lost to Seongnam and Jeonbuk Motors respectively.
Second-bottom Daejeon went down 2-0 after goals from Seong-Jun Kim and Server Djeparov while a late Ianis Zicu effort proved to be just a consolation as Gangwon lost 3-1. Chunnam Dragons moved up to ninth after a 1-0 win over Suwon Bluewings, Joon-Tae Park getting the all important goal.
