FA Cup Recap: Daejeon Citizen 3-0 Yonsei University

Daejeon were a class apart from Yonsei University to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Two goals from Wanderson and one from Park Dae-Hoon sealed a 3-0 win and ensured the K League Challenge side secure their second win in a week.

Daejeon started extremely brightly with plenty of endeavour and verve and, thus, it wasn't too long before the home side were ahead.

The Brazilian utility man Wanderson, who has found himself warming the substitutes bench in recent matches, was back in the side and given the chance to earn his way back into Choi Moon-Sik’s reckoning.

With just five minutes on the clock, the twenty-seven-year old from Santa Ines found space down the right hand side, cut in onto his favoured left foot, and found the goalkeeper’s bottom left hand corner with aplomb.

After the goal Daejeon looked noticeably more confident in possession but seemed to take their foot of the gas somewhat.

This allowed Yonsei University a spell of possession in midfield who then knocked on the door a few times, forcing a couple of strong saves from the ever-reliable Park Ju-Won in the Daejeon goal.

Jean-Claude Bozga and Alvaro Silva, who were playing together in a Daejeon back line for the first time, looked a touch panicked with the ball at their feet but assertive when defending; limiting Yonsei to just a few speculative efforts.

Daejeon, though, soon upped the tempo and hit Yonsei on the break to double their lead on 35 minutes.

After earning themselves a free kick in a dangerous position, quick thinking saw the set piece taken early and into the path of Park Dae-Hoon who got in behind the Yonsei defense.

The first year professional followed in Yoo Seung-Wan’s footsteps by notching his first career goal, finding the far corner with a well-taken strike.

Daejeon coasted into the break with a two goal cushion without really breaking a sweat.

The second half began with Yonsei on the front foot, causing a touch of panic amongst the Daejeon defence.

But, much like the Purples did for the second goal, the Challenge side were able to create something out of almost nothing.

A long ball forward was over hit and seemingly wasted but the oncoming Yonsei goalkeeper miss hit his clearance and sliced the ball into the path of Wanderson.

Wanderson chased the ball to the byline before steering it into the far corner from an acute angle; Daejeon three nil up and cruising with a win now merely academic.

Citizen could have been well and truly out of sight but were perhaps a little hesitant in and around the penalty area.

A couple of crosses flashed across goal and perhaps with a bit more experience up top, those half chances could have been converted.

Yonsei hit the cross bar midway through the second period but apart from that barely threatened.
The game finished a comprehensive three nil win to Daejeon.

A fourth round tie with Suwon FC on the 11th May awaits Daejeon but up next for the Purples is a trip to north west Gyeonggi-do to take on struggling Goyang Zaicro.

Match preview to follow later this week.
