Lee Jae-seong (30, Mainz) tells the news of scoring every day.
Mainz won 3-1 in the home game against Augsburg in the 20th round of the German Bundesliga in the 2022-23 season held at the Meba Arena in Mainz, Germany on the 11th (Korean time). This brings Mainz to 11th place with 26 points. Augsburg is 13th.
Lee Jae-seong started as an attacking midfielder for Mainz and took part in most of the attacking situations. In the 21st minute of the first half, he scored an additional goal with a right-footed sliding shot to make it 2-0. In the 17th minute of the second half when the score was 2-1, he scored a 3-1 key goal with a left-footed shot.
This is the moment Lee Jae-sung’s 5th and 6th goals of this season were scored at the same time. Lee Jae-sung scored two goals in one game for the first time after advancing to the German Bundesliga (first division). Based on the regular league, this is the first multi-goal record in two years and two months since the match against Jan Regensburg (3-2 win) in December 2020, which belonged to the second division.
Throughout his professional career, he challenges the highest number of points in the first division in one season. Lee Jae-sung made his professional debut at Jeonbuk Hyundai in the K-League 1 in 2014, and has spent seven seasons in the first division. His most goals in a season in Jeonbuk was set in the 2017 season. At the time, he had 6 goals and 6 assists in 23 appearances.
In the German first division Bundesliga, he accumulated 4 goals and 3 assists in 27 matches last season. This season, he scored 6 goals and 1 assist in 20 games. Mainz has 14 more games left. If Jae-Sung Lee maintains the same pace as now, he can change his personal record for the remainder of the season.
It is also good news for the Korean national soccer team. The national soccer team will play a friendly A match against the Colvia national team at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Field on March 24th. This is the first A match that will be played after the new manager takes office. While the national team’s built-in midfielder Lee Jae-seong is likely to play, Lee Jae-sung’s scoring shot is expected to have a positive impact on the national team. 안전놀이터
