In the middle, Ha Dae-sung, Lee Sang-ho, and Osmar Ibanez formed a triangle. Seoul’s most productive scorer Dejan Damjanovic was in the center of the offensives, with Kova and Yun Il-lok forming wings on each side.  

Seoul began to crank up ball possession, dominating the game from the earliest minutes of it. In the 9th minute, Lee Sang-ho earned a free-kick from the right side of the penalty box.
