Cho Kyu-sung (25-Mitwillan) scored a multi-goal game for the first time since joining the Danish Superliga. With his eighth goal of the season, he is now within striking distance of reaching double digits in his first year in Europe.
Mittwillan scored a brace in the 17th round of the 2023-24 Danish Superliga against Viborg FF at the MCH Arena in Herning, Denmark, on Friday morning (ET).
With the win, Mittwillan recorded their 11th league win (3 draws, 3 losses) to regain first place in the standings with 36 points.
The star of the show was Cho Kyu-sung, who started as a frontline striker in a 4-4-2 formation and scored two goals on two shots on target. It’s the first time Cho has scored multiple goals in a game since joining the European program. He rattled the net with a penalty kick in first-half stoppage time and a right-footed strike in the 21st minute of the second half to seal the victory. His top ratings and Man of the Match (MOTD) honors were well deserved.
With his eighth goal in the league, Cho now ranks third in league scoring. His official stats since joining Mittwillan are nine goals and two assists in 22 games. He is just one goal away from reaching double digits in his first year.
Cho Kyu-sung started as the team’s frontline striker again. He partnered up front with Franculinho. Chávez, Dario Osorio, Christopher Olsen, Andre Roemer, Paulinho, Mats Bech Sørensen, Sverrir Ingi Ingason, and Henrik Dahlsgård started in goal, with Jonas Lossl in goal.
It was Viborg who opened the scoring. From the start, Yefe Gröning threatened Mitwillan’s goal with a left-footed mid-range shot from outside the box.
From there, it was all Mitwylan on the attack. First, in the 14th minute, Cho Kyu-sung met a cross from the left with an exquisite header that went wide of the left post. Two minutes later, a cross from Franklinho was saved by Cho Kyu-sung and then crossed back into the center of the box. However, Chárez’s shot lacked power and ended up in the goalkeeper’s arms. In the 25th minute, Osorio had an exquisite free kick that was saved.
After failing to capitalize on the opportunity, Mitwillan was dealt a blow. On the counter-attack in the 30th minute, Anosike Emmenta created the perfect opportunity for Jakob Bonde with an exquisite heeled pass. Bonde slid it in with his right foot to rattle Mitwillan’s net. 무지개토토 도메인
In response, Mitwylan got inside the penalty area after a daring dribble break by Francis Coquelin, who even showed a painted move. However, there was no one to receive his final left-footed cross.
In the 42nd minute, Cho Kyu-sung’s cross was headed in by Francinho, but he didn’t get a proper touch and couldn’t get an accurate shot off. On the ensuing corner kick, Francinho collided with the goalkeeper and was hit in the face. A penalty kick (PK) was awarded for the incident. Cho Kyu-sung stepped up to take the kick and slotted it into the center to even the score.
