Lee Jae-seong (Mainz) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), the ‘monster defender’ who smiled in the ‘Korean Derby’, showed off top-class performance as if they had forgotten the fatigue of the international match.
Lee Jae-seong and Kim Min-jae, who recently played in both international matches (against Tunisia and Vietnam), both started and played in the 8th round match of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga held at the Meva Arena in Mainz, Germany on the morning of the 22nd (Korean time). As a result, Munich won 3-1 with consecutive goals from Kingsley Coman, Harry Kane, and Leon Goretzka.짱구카지노 주소
Munich finished in 3rd place with 6 wins and 2 draws (20 points). Mainz is in 17th place with 2 draws and 6 losses (2 points), falling into a slump of 8 consecutive games without a win.
In the 12th minute of the first half, Lee Jae-seong hit the goalpost with a header shot, chilling Kim Min-jae. However, after that, Kim Min-jae trampled the Mainz defense, showing off his unique quick feet and impeccable man-to-man defense.
According to soccer statistics company ‘Foot Mob’, Minjae Kim touched the ball 110 times while playing full time as a starter on this day. Of those, 102 passes were attempted, all of which were successful, recording a 100% pass success rate. When Munich recruited Kim Min-jae from Naples in Italy’s Serie A last summer, they kept an eye on his unique defensive ability as well as his foot skills. In particular, I paid close attention to his numbers, which showed an average pass success rate of over 90% in rear build-up, and he proved it well on this day.
There were 7 offensive zone passes, and all 3 long passes were successful. He also performed well in defense, including 1 block, 3 kicks, 2 headers, 2 interceptions, and 5 recoveries. We attempted an aerial ball contest twice and both were successful, 100%.
Lee Jae-seong, who was substituted in the 18th minute of the second half and played until he retired, touched the ball 28 times. He struggled to make one shot into a valid shot, missed pressure twice, and succeeded in two out of three attempts at aerial ball duels. While the team struggled against Munich, the pass success rate was 79% (14 attempts, 11 successes).
