Lee Kang-in, who started on the bench on the away road to Atletico Madrid, is highly likely to start in the match against Athletic Bilbao.
Real Mallorca will play round 32 of the Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season with Bilbao at Bisit Mallorca Estadi, located in Mallorca, Spain, on May 2 at 2:00 am (Korean time). Mallorca is in 12th place with 40 points (11 wins, 7 draws, 13 losses), and Bilbao is in 7th place with 46 points (13 wins, 7 draws, 11 losses).
Recently, Mallorca ran undefeated in Lee Kang-in’s performance. Starting with Osasuna, they did not lose against Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Getafe. Lee Kang-in was praised for his steady performance and was selected as the best player of the match with 9 successful dribbles against Celta Vigo. Against Getafe, he scored multiple goals and led a 3-1 victory.
The goal scored in the second half of extra time against Getafe was listed as the La Liga goal of the month. Based on his good performance, Lee Kang-in is nominated for La Liga Player of the Month and competes with Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) and Marco Asensio (Real Madrid). He was also expected to start in the match against Atlético, which was aiming for a three-game winning streak, but Lee Kang-in was named on the bench list along with key players such as Bedat Muriki and Antonio Rayo.
The match ended in a 1-3 defeat. Lee Kang-in came on as a substitute in the second half and recorded an 81.3% pass success rate, 2 shots, 2 successful dribbles, and 2 fouls. Lionel Messi showed off his rising form with his rising dribble. It was to the point where he wondered why he hadn’t made it to the starting lineup. At the post-game press conference, coach Javier Aguirre explained the reason, saying, “I started from the bench on the schedule. Muriki and Lee Kang-in were feeling uncomfortable from two games ago.”스포츠토토
He said, “I knew that I couldn’t play 90 minutes and planned a break. It was planned. Lee Kang-in and Muriki were unreasonable to start three games in a row in such a tight schedule. Although they lost, the rotation effect would have been. The three games I played in the punishment were painful,” he added.
This time, he is scheduled to compete. Spain’s ‘Marca’ put Lee Kang-in in the expected lineup with the prospect of starting. In the 5-3-2 formation, Luis de Galareta and Manu Morlanes formed the midfield. Attention is focusing on Lee Kang-in’s performance to see if he will give victory again to Mallorca, whose undefeated streak has been broken.
