Hong Hyeon-seok of Gent has a chance to take a big club eye stamp…’London UECL quarterfinals’
KAA Gent (Belgium) Hong Hyun-seok (23) took the opportunity to show off his skills in London, England.
The European Football Federation (UEFA) completed the draw for the 2022-23 season UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) quarterfinals and semifinals at UEFA headquarters located in Nyon, Switzerland at 10:00 pm (hereinafter Korean time) on the 17th.
‘Korean Leaguer’ Hong Hyun-seok’s match against Gent drew attention. With 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses (8 points) in the group stage, Gent successfully advanced to the round of 16 playoffs by finishing second in the group following Jurgarden IF (Sweden, 16 points). Then he met Karabakh FK (Azerbaijan) and advanced to the tournament with an aggregate score of 1-1 and a penalty shoot-out 5-3 victory.
The opponent in the round of 16 was Basaksehir FK (Turkiye). And the combined score was 5-2, and it showed a blast going up to the quarterfinals. In the process, Hong Hyun-seok started both games and gained strength, and recorded one assist.
As a result of the draw, Ghent faced West Ham United (England). Of course, it is true that he is a difficult opponent in terms of objective power. But West Ham have been in trouble this season. In the English Premier League (EPL), they are at the bottom of the table with 6 wins, 6 draws and 14 losses (24 points). It is one step ahead of the relegation zone, 18th, so it is difficult to focus only on UECL.
The first match will be played at Geramco Arena in Belgium on April 14, and the second match will be held at London Stadium in England on the 21st.
If Gent catches West Ham anyway, they will face the winner of AZ Alkmaar (Netherlands) versus RSC Anderlecht (Belgium) in the semifinals. There is a possibility that the ‘Belgian house fight’ with Anderlecht will be concluded. The match was scheduled for mid-May. 메이저놀이터
