Jung Woo-young did not accompany the Juventus expedition due to illness.
Freiburg lost 0-1 to Juventus in the first leg of the round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) in the 2022-23 season held at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy on the 10th at 5:00 am (Korean time). The second leg of the two teams will be held at home in Freiburg on the 17th.
Prior to the match, the starting rosters for both teams were revealed. Freiburg used a 3-4-3 formation. Grippo, Höller, and Salai lined up in the forefront, while Günther, Hoeffler, Gestein, and Kübler formed the midfield. The three backs were paired with Reinhardt, Ginter and Cidilia. The goal was kept by Flecken. Juventus faced off with Blahovic, Di Maria and Sandro.
Jung Woo-young was nowhere to be seen. The reason for the absence was illness. According to Freiburg’s official channel, coach Christian Streich said, “Jung Woo-young was ill and did not accompany him on this expedition.”
Jung Woo-young left Daegeon High School in Incheon in 2018 and joined the Bayern Munich youth academy. After joining the second team in Munich, he stood out in the Bayern regional league in the 2018-19 season, scoring 13 goals and 6 assists in 29 games. Accordingly, in November 2018, he made his European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) debut against Benfica.
Ahead of the 2019-20 season, he moved to Freiburg to get more opportunities to play. Jung Woo-young, who gradually expanded his position, participated in 32 Bundesliga games last season and scored 5 goals and 2 assists. However, this season, due to the joining of rivals such as Doan Ritz, his playing time has decreased somewhat. He played 19 league games, but only started 5 times. 로켓 토토
After the World Cup break, the situation is similar. He played as a starter in the match against Wolfsburg at the end of January, but has since been substituted in five league games. In the match against Monchengladbach last weekend, I sat on the bench, but I couldn’t play at all. In the midst of this, he suffered from a disease problem and was excluded from the first round of UEL.
Freiburg without Jung Woo-young lost 0-1 to Juventus. In the 8th minute of the second half, Angel Di Maria scored the opening goal with a header. After that, good opportunities were lost. In the 17th minute of the second half, in a free kick situation, Höller shook the net with a volley. However, as a result of video review (VAR), a handball foul was confirmed and the goal was canceled. Freiburg now has to risk life and death in the second leg next week.
