Three ‘Korean Guys’ have scored against Manchester City this season. Now, City could face another ‘Korean Guy’.

Manchester City defeated Crvena Zvezda 3-2 in the sixth leg of their 2023-24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group G match at Stadion Raiko Mitić in Belgrade, Serbia, on Thursday at 5 a.m. ET. With six wins from six games, City tops the group and advances to the round of 16.

It was Zbezda’s Hwang In-beom who put City on the back foot after scoring two early goals. Hwang scored his UCL debut against City in the 31st minute of the second half. City converted a penalty kick to extend their lead, but Hwang’s assist made it 2-3 heading into the final minute. The game went on to be won by City without any further goals, but it was a dizzying performance from Hwang In-Beom who kept them in the game.랭크카지노

Korean players have been outstanding against City this season. Hwang In-bum wasn’t the only Korean to score against City. First up was Hwang Hee-chan. Hwang’s Wolverhampton met City in the seventh round of the Premier League (PL) last September, and Hwang came from behind to defeat City 2-1. After a six-match unbeaten run, City had to end their unbeaten streak early.

Before the game, there was a special episode. When asked in the pre-match press conference if he had a favorite player, Guardiola referred to only one Wolverhampton player, Hwang Hee-chan, as “Korean Guy”. When Hwang scored, he referred to him as “Hwang” after the game. The Korean Guy is in top form, with eight goals to date, and is tied for fifth in the PL in scoring.

Son Heung-min is another “Korean Guy” who has been a threat to City, especially when he meets them. In the 14th round of the PL on April 4, the “City Killer” scored a goal and provided an assist in a dramatic 3-3 draw. Despite an unfortunate own goal, Son was recognized for his performance by being named Man of the Match after the game and is now third on the team in goals.

Now, City have another ‘Korean Guy’ on their hands. Lee Kang-in. After finishing first in their group, City will face one of the teams that finished second. That includes Lee’s Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). PSG drew 1-1 with Dortmund in the sixth leg of their last-16 tie, finishing ahead of AC Milan on goal difference and advancing to the round of 16 as second in their group behind Dortmund. There’s a chance they could face Man City, and Lee Kang-in could also be in the scoring column.

The draw for the round of 16 will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, at 8 p.m. on April 18. The UCL round of 16 will be played in two home-and-away legs in February and March next year. The final will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, England on June 2, 2024.
