Recap: Daejeon Citizen 2-0 Bucheon 1995

Daejeon extend their unbeaten run to five and move within four points of the playoffs after seeing off the challenge of high-flying Bucheon.

Gustavo Sauerbeck was in scintillating form proving a goal and an assist for the Purples.
Goals from Kim Dong-Chan and Gustavo Sauerbeck sealed a 2-0 win for Daejeon in a thoroughly professional performance at Daejeon World Cup Stadium in a game which saw both teams finish the game with ten men.

In the first half both teams were evenly matched, Daejeon preferring to sit back and let Bucheon play before trying to hit their Gyeonggi-do counterparts on the break.

Bucheon enjoyed large spells of possession in the middle of the park but, a few speculative efforts aside, seldom looked like getting in behind Daejeon’s rock solid defence.

It wasn’t until the second period where the game began to open up with both sides upping the tempo somewhat from that of the first forty five.

With more space to work it didn’t take Daejeon long to exploit with Gustavo Sauerbeck and Wanderson in particular able to get on the ball and make nuisances of themselves.

Likewise, it wasn’t long before Daejeon were ahead, Sauerbeck instrumental as he was all evening, swung in a low, teasing cross with his left foot from the left hand side, 20 yards out in towards the six yard box.

Daejeon’s top scorer Kim Dong-Chan found the space to glance the ball into the far corner with a clever diving header from close range.

After going ahead the Purples noticeably grew in confidence, controlling large spells of the second half and thus just fifteen minutes after going ahead, Citizen had doubled their advantage.

Brazilian utility man Wanderson was brought down just past the half way line and was awarded a free kick.

The resulting free kick saw Daejeon work the ball across field and into the path of Sauerbeck who displayed some real Brazilian magic.

Despite a deep starting position, Daejeon’s number 99 danced his way through the Bucheon defence, and thanks to a probing and determined run – not to mention the nutmegging of Bucheon’s last man, he found himself six yards out bearing down on goal.

Ryu Won-Woo in the Bucheon goal was alert but not quite alert enough as Sauerbeck coolly slotted the ball past the advancing ‘keeper to send the Daejeon faithful into raptures.

The home side were now two goals to the good and showed a great deal of professionalism in their game management to comfortably saw the game out.

However, this wasn’t before both sides were reduced to ten men.

With Bucheon having one last push to get themselves back into the game, Brazilian forward Waguininho found himself in a one on one with Daejeon goalkeeper Park Ju-Won.

The highly rated custodian snuffed out the danger, rushing out bravely to thwart Waguininho, but the Bucheon number 10 appeared to leave a foot in in the process, leaving the 26-year-old stopper in a heap on the floor.

This prompted a mass scuffle between both sets of players with Daejeon skipper Kim Byung-Suk getting involved with Waguininho and, as a result, both men were shown straight red cards with just over 5 minutes of normal time to play.

Solid at the back and potent in the final third, Daejeon comfortably got the job done and are now in an extremely promising position heading into Monday’s clash with Ansan.
