A powerful one-two punch followed by three uppercuts. The opponent was already in a groggy state. This happened until the fourth minute of the second half. FC Anyang once again confirmed their status as the ‘Jeonnam Killer’ this season, defeating the Jeonnam Dragons 3-1. After conceding two goals in the first half and then a wedge goal early in the second half, Jeonnam couldn’t find any pace. Valdivia’s goal came in the 26th minute of the second half, but it wasn’t enough to turn the tide.

Before the game, it was expected to be a close contest. It was a matchup between fifth-ranked Anyang and sixth-ranked Jeonnam, and Jeonnam was coming off a 2-1 victory over league leader Gimcheon in their previous match. The managers of both teams practically predicted an all-out war to win the ‘six points’ match.
However, when the kickoff whistle blew, Anyang took control of the game. Anyang was fresh off a two-week break, so their fitness was strong, and they took the lead in the 16th minute. Yago, who started on the right flank, made an aggressive move and made a quick run from the right to the center. He then took over Bruno’s pass in the center and scored the first goal.
As Jeonnam reeled from the goal, another goal came, this time from veteran Joo Hyun-woo, who shook the Jeonnam goal. After receiving a pass from Yago in the center, Joo broke through the box and calmly scored past the opposing goalkeeper. The first half ended 2-0.
However, the rejuvenated Anyang’s offense continued early in the second half. In the fourth minute of the second half, Bruno scored again, this time with an assist from Yago. After receiving a corner kick from Joo Hyun-woo, Yago sent in a cross that Bruno slid in to make it 3-0. Jeonnam was completely in a groggy state. Jeonnam managed to escape defeat in the 26th minute of the second half when Valdivia converted a free kick into an exquisite goal. Jeonnam played with all their might until the sixth minute of stoppage time, but they were unable to open the Anyang goal any further.
