Kilmarnock home fans left the pitch at lightning speed.
Kilmarnock ended the first half with Celtic in the 32nd round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2022-23 season held at Rugby Park in Kilmarnock, Scotland on the 16th at 8pm (Korean time).
There was a lot of objective power difference. Before kick-off, Celtic were in first place with 29 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (88 points), while Kilmarnock were 11th with 7 wins, 7 draws and 17 losses (28 points).
Even in home games, the number of excellent players collapsed. He opened the goal in the 7th minute of the first half. Celtic Furuhashi blocked a pass and sprinted. Afterwards, after folding once inside the penalty box, he shook the net with a calm left-footed shot.
gave up an extra run. In the 12th minute of the first half, Johnston crossed from outside the penalty box and Maeda, who was positioned in front of the goal, scored with a header shot. It went on. In the 18th minute of the first half, Taylor put a pass in front of the goal and O’Reilly took over and scored with a simple left-footed shot. 안전놀이터
Then four months passed. In the 21st minute of the first half, he dedicated a penalty kick (PK) to Taylor. Then, on the broadcast screen, Kilmarnock home fans were caught leaving the field. At a level that is hard to see anymore, I couldn’t hide my anger at the team that collapsed helplessly.
“The Kilmarnock fans are still at Rugby Park. Why are they still there? Rugby Park, wherever there’s no TV,” wrote Joel Sked of Scotland’s Scotsman Sports.
However, PK led to failure. Furuhashi stepped up as the kicker and the kick hit the left post. Maeda shot it, but it also missed.
Meanwhile, the first half ended with Celtic leading 4-1. In the 27th minute of the first half, Maeda’s shot was hit and flowed, and Kilmarnock’s clearing missed and headed for the goal. Afterwards, O’Reilly finished with a shot towards the corner of the goal.
Kilmarnock made up for it. In the 45th minute of the first half, after successfully pressing forward, Donnelly shot. The ball hit the Hart keeper, and Armstrong took another shot. Even this was blocked by Kobayashi, but Donnelly showed concentration and pushed it through.
At the end of the first half, Kilmarnock had 18% of possession and only 52% of pass success. Even with the comeback goal, they still have a 3-point lead, so it looks very difficult to overturn.
