Those waiting for Daegu FC News will be thrilled to hear that their favorite team has gained the first win of the finals, which will allow them to claim the title if they draw or even lose 0-1 in the second leg of the final.
FA Cup Match Heats Up
The defending FA Cup champions, Ulsan Hyundai, lose to Daegu after the striker of Daegu FC, Brazilian Edgar (Edgar Bruno DaSilva) scored and sealed the victory for his team. Both of the teams were actually scoreless during the first half of the match. But Ulsan’s Hwang Il-su had a right-footed strike around the 51st minute. Daegu FC’s Cesinha (Cesar Fernando Silva Melo), who happens to be the top assist maker in this season for the K League, fires a right-foot strike as well, and scored to tie the match just a minute later. But despite the match heating up after this, the away win that Daegu earns is only final in the 88th minute, when Edgar scored the goal.
Incidentally, this is the first time that Daegu FC has ever won a match against Ulsan Hyundai in the past two years. In the K league this season, Daegu actually lost all of their three matches against Ulsan.
To those learning about sports betting Korea, specifically football, the FA Cup uses a home-and-away format for the last match. So they will look at the aggregate score, which will determine who the champions of the FA Cup will be. This uses the away goals rule. The return leg will be on Saturday, at the Daegu Stadium. Whoever wins this, will be part of the group stage of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League in 2019.
