The first-ever challenge of K3 League teams to advance to the round of 8 for the FA CUP has ended with Yangpyeong FC and Chuncheon Citizen FC losing their match at the round of 16.
At the match of Round of 16 for 2018 KEB HANA Bank FA CUP held on 8th at Daegu Stadium, Daegu FC defeated Yangpyeong FC by a big score gap of 0 and 8. Despite Yangpyeong FC’s surprise victory against Sangju Sangmu at the last match of Round of 32 through penalty shoot-outs, Yangpyeong FC suffered through the match by the fierce and fast offense of Daegu FC.
Jeonnam Dragons defeated Chuncheon Citizen FC by the score of 2 to 1 at Gwangyang Football Stadium.
The defending champion Ulsan Hyundai advanced to the Round of 8 by scoring two goals against Busan Ipark. These two teams were the final two of the last FA CUP.
On the other hand, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, one of the best teams of K LEAGUE, has surprisingly lost at their match against Asan Mugunghwa at Lee-Soon-Sin Sports Complex, thus failing to advance to the FA CUP Round of 8. Although Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors led the game by scoring a goal, they lost by the score of 2 to 1 at the game they were winning.
The draw and match schedules for FA CUP Round of 8 are still to be determined. Due to the schedules of A match and ACL in September, it seems that further match of FA CUP will be held after October. Specific details and dates will be announced soon.
