Coach Javier Aguirre was concerned about Lee Kang-in’s injury and excluded him from the selection.
Mallorca lost 1-3 to Atletico Madrid in the 31st round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at the Estadio Civitas Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 27th. Mallorca didn’t get any points, but still maintained 11th place in the league (40 points).
On this day, coach Aguirre started the rotation. Both Muriki (12 goals) and Lee Kang-in (5 goals), who are responsible for 58% of the team’s points (29 points) based on the league, were excluded from the selection. Based on the 3-5-2 formation, Pratz, Angel, Costa, Dani, Baba, Morlanes, Mafeo, Cofete, Nastasic, Hajikadunić, and Rykovic competed. 토토사이트
The start was good. In the middle of the first half, Mallorca scored the opening goal. In the 20th minute of the first half, Dani headed the ball from a corner kick. Nastasic, who did not miss this, split the net with a header. However, just before the end of the first half, DePaul equalized. The first half ended 1-1.
In the end, Atlético succeeded in reversing. Two minutes into the second half, Morata, who received Molinha’s cross, shook the net with a header. In response, coach Aguirre raised the number of wins. In the 11th minute of the second half, Pratz, Angel, and Morlanes were all removed, and Muriki, Lee Kang-in, and Ndiaye were put in at the same time.
Lee Kang-in showed active body movement after the substitution. In particular, in the 30th minute of the second half, he penetrated between the four defenders of Atletico and succeeded in finishing the shot, but unfortunately, it was caught on the defensive wall at the end. He ran around the ground for about 35 minutes and performed well, recording a dribble success rate of 100% (2 attempts / 2 successes) and 2 shots, but he could not prevent the team from losing.
After the game, coach Aguire explained with Lee Kang-in why Muriki was excluded from the starting lineup. He said, “If Lee Kang-in and Muriki start for three consecutive games, the possibility of injury increases, so we planned to put them in the second half.” In fact, Lee Kang-in played full-time in both matches against Celta Vigo and Getafe. This game only had 3 days after the match against Getafe.
