Oh Hyun-kyu, who is playing in the Scottish Premiership, missed a chance to score in his fourth ‘Old Firm Derby’.
On the 13th (Korean time), Oh Hyun-gyu played 63 minutes, including hitting the goal post, in the match against the Rangers held at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland.
Oh Hyun-kyu, who started as a frontline striker in place of main striker Kyogo Furuhashi, received a through pass in the 6th minute of the first half when the score was 0-1, breaking the offside trap and creating a one-on-one opportunity.
When Rangers goalkeeper Robbie McCrory dashed to narrow the shooting angle, Oh Hyeon-gyu sensibly chose a chip shot.
The ball left Oh Hyun-gyu’s foot, crossed the goalkeeper’s key, and headed toward the goal, but hit the goal post. Oh Hyeon-gyu looked up at the sky and swallowed his regret.
It was the first and last shot Oh Hyun-kyu attempted in this game. Oh Hyeon-gyu moved diligently in the front line and dragged the Rangers defense to open an attacking path, but Celtic lost the initiative and could not catch the ball.
According to Foot Mob, a soccer statistics company, Oh Hyun-gyu touched only 7 times. Hyungyu Oh only had one pass. Oh Hyun-kyu finished his fourth Old Firm Derby when he was notified of a replacement in the 18th minute of the second half when the score was 0-2.
Celtic secured the season title regardless of the outcome of the remaining matches with a 2-0 win over Hearts on the 7th. Maybe that’s why, despite the rivalry, the first team players were mixed with bench players to play the game in rotation.
As a result, unlike Celtic, Rangers, who had a lineup of key players, took control of the game with the support of home fans. The ball possession was only 34%, but the Rangers spent a lot of time in the opposing camp, and the Rangers took the lead with 16-8 in the number of shots.
Rangers’ Todd Cantwell scored the opening goal.
Rangers took the lead in the 5th minute of the first half. The ball left Todd Cantwell’s left foot near the penalty box and flew like a clothesline, shaking the net.
The extra goal came in the 32nd minute of the first half. From a corner kick opportunity, defender John Sutta headed it to make it 2-0.
Rangers scored the third goal in the 23rd minute of the second half. Taking advantage of a defensive error by the Celtic defense, Passion Sakala stole the ball and scored in a one-on-one opportunity past goalkeeper Joe Hart.
Rangers soothed the disappointment of failing to win the season by winning the last Old Firm Derby 3-0.
Passion Sakala passed goalkeeper Joe Hart to score the third goal to seal the win.
Celtic and Rangers are rivals based side by side in Glasgow. The ‘Old Firm Derby’, in which two teams face each other, is considered one of the most dangerous football derbies in the world due to its intertwined religious and political issues.먹튀검증
The two teams have faced each other six times throughout the cup this season. In the last five games, Celtic had an absolute advantage with 4 wins and 1 draw, but Rangers laughed in the last game.
