Gimpo FC defeated FC Seoul and caused ‘K-League 2 Rebellion’. Seoul E-Land also won a thrilling 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Suwon FC.
Gimpo caused a disturbance by winning Seoul. Gimpo is continuing its good momentum with an undefeated record (2 wins, 3 draws) in the K-League 2 this season, but a tough match was expected as Seoul also has a good atmosphere as it is ranked 3rd in the league. However, Gimpo persistently dragged the game to the penalty shootout, and thanks to Hwang Hyun-soo’s miss and Kim Min-jae’s save, they became the protagonists of the reversal to capture Seoul. 스포츠토토

Suwon FC’s Kwak Dong-jun was sent off and took advantage of the numerical superiority.
