Mallorca in crisis, Lee Kang-in, a come-from-behind drama
Mallorca, Vedat Muriki and Amas Ndiaye came out as two tops, and Lee Kang-in teamed up with Inigo Luis de Galareta and Manu Morlanes in the midfield.
From the start of the game, Lee Kang-in led the attack with bold forward passes and breakthroughs. However, Mallorca took the lead in the 22nd minute through Getafe’s Borja Mayoral. The first half finished 0-1 with no shots on target.
However, the game changed from the second half after Mallorca reorganized. It was Lee Kang-in who changed the flow.
In the 11th minute of the second half, when Carlos Arena’s shot was blocked by the goalkeeper, Lee Kang-in, who was rushing to Moonseon, repeatedly kicked it, shaking Hetapa’s net with his fourth goal of the season. When Lee Kang-in’s goal tied the score at 1-1, Mallorca’s attack intensified.
Mallorca managed to turn the score around 2-1 just eight minutes after Lee Kang-in’s equalizer, when Antonio Raiyo split the goal with a header from De Galareta’s cross from a corner kick chance.
A one-goal difference made it impossible to determine the outcome. Getafe, who suffered a reversal, launched an all-out offensive, and Mallorca responded with defense, and a tense game continued.
It was Lee Kang-in who ended the tense tug-of-war. In the extra time of the second half, Getafe players were all attacking and the ball was stolen, and Lee Kang-in, who caught it, sprinted to the Getafe goal with a fast single dribble from below the half line and scored with a left-footed shot.
