Ghent achieved a big win for the first time in a long time. Because it was a competition of relatively low importance with a tight schedule, although some of the starting players, including Hong Hyun-seok, started on the bench, they poured out their firepower from the first half. Starting with Omri Gandelman’s first goal, Hugo Kawifers added two goals, and Tarik Tissudali also scored.
On this day, Hong Hyun-seok was brought onto the pitch as a substitute in the 12th minute of the second half. He played for 33 minutes in a slightly lower position than an attacking midfielder. In the national team, he often played in the third line, so it was not an unfamiliar position.
Hong Hyun-seok helped Gift Orban’s key goal to put an end to the game. In the 24th minute of the second half, he put pressure on the opponent and caused a missed pass, then drove the stolen ball forward and supplied a pass to Orban, who was rushing forward. Orban finished it cleanly with a left-footed shot inside the penalty box. With this, Hong Hyun-seok recorded his fourth assist of the season. On 14 August, it was 74 days since he recorded an assist against KVC Westerlo.
Ghent also succeeded in reviving the mood by winning a big win for the first time in a long time. Since Hong Hyun-seok’s absence, Gent has stagnated with 2 wins and 5 draws in 7 games in official competitions. In the league match against Serklerbrugge, which was Hong Hyun-seok’s return game, they suffered a 0-2 loss in the league for the first time this season.
Gent will play the 12th round of the Belgian Pro League against Standard Liège on the 30th. It is likely that Hong Hyun-seok and Gift Orbán, who took a break in the Europa Conference League, will start as starters. If Ghent captures Standard, the negative atmosphere so far can be turned into an upward trend.
