After escaping back-to-back defeats, Chungnam Asan FC will look to extend their winning streak with a victory over Busan I-Park.
Chungnam Asan will host Busan in the 15th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 on Sunday, April 28 at 4 p.m. at Gudok Stadium.
Chungnam Asan has managed to end its losing streak. After failing to pick up a point during their last three consecutive defeats, the team showed a gritty performance and laid the foundation for a turnaround with a 1-0 win over Cheonan City.
They will face Busan at Gudok Stadium this weekend. Busan is currently in fourth place with 23 points after 14 rounds. With only three points separating them from first-place Gimpo FC, they can leapfrog up the table at any time.

Chungnam Asan will go into the match with a must-win mentality. They will try to keep the momentum going as they broke their losing streak. The key player is Kang Min-kyu. He joined Chungnam Asan in the 2022 season and has been the lifeblood of the team’s offense, scoring the team’s first goal of the season every year. This is reflected in his record. In the April matches of the K League 2, Kang ranked third in sprint distance (3448 meters) 메이저놀이터 and fourth in number of sprints (162), which are among the best in the entire league. He has also been in excellent form, playing a crucial role in the final goal that gave the team three points against Cheonan, although it was recorded as an own goal by the opposing defense.
Goalkeeper Park Han-geun has also been in good form. He started the last match against Cheonsan and made several saves to keep the team in the game. Together with the defense, it will be interesting to see if they can keep a clean sheet against the Busan offense.

We want to take advantage of the atmosphere and bring home three points, and we will reward our fans who will travel a long way to see us with good content and results.”
