Match Preview: Brentford B v FC Seoul

A look ahead to the first match of Brentford B's stay in Portugal

19 January 2020

Brentford B play their first match in Portugal when they take on FC Seoul’s first team at their Penina Resort in a 3pm kick-off on Sunday.

The young Bees, who were in Bordeaux earlier in the week, have flown to the south of the country to play three fixtures during their week’s stay.

The first opponents on the agenda will be a tough FC Seoul side who have been in Portugal for a couple of weeks readying themselves for their season in South Korea which kicks off in a couple of months’ time after they have played in the Asian Champions League.

FC Seoul boast a strong team and recently held two German sides in Wolfsburg and Hamburg to 1-1 draws, therefore Neil MacFarlane’s side will be anticipating a tough test.

Looking ahead to the fixtures, Brentford B Head Coach Neil MacFarlane wants his side to respond when they take on FC Seoul. He said: “We’ve come out on the wrong side (v Bordeaux) but they’re the type of games that will help develop the players whether we win or lose. They were certainly pushed today and that will definitely be the case in Portugal against men’s teams so it’s up to us to respond.”

The Bees have brought with 20 players with them, including first teamers Dru Yearwood and Luka Racic with both players likely to feature in the first match in Portugal. Elsewhere it is the usual crop of Brentford B players with Fredrik Hammar and Japhet Sery Larsen back with the team after missing out on the trip to France earlier in the week. Simon Andersson looks set to join up with the team later in the week following international duty, meaning Nathan Shepperd could well start in goal again for the young Bees.

The match, which is open to spectators, is currently planned to be streamed on the club’s YouTube channel but confirmation of this will given on the day of the match. Nonetheless the club intends to give full coverage of the game across social media.

Match Report and Match Action: Brentford B 3 FC Seoul 3

Young Bees begin Portugal tour with six-goal thriller

21 January 2020

Brentford B picked up an entertaining 3-3 draw in their first match of their tour in Portugal against FC Seoul at the Penina Resort.

Two Gustav Mogensen goals put the young Bees in the ascendancy before their opponents pulled one back just before half-time through Yang Yumin.

Matej Majka then added a third when he finished well in the second half but goals from Han Chanhee and Park Dongjin ensured the game would end level.

Neil MacFarlane’s side started the brighter with the energy and press from the front three causing the South Korean side multiple problems.

The first chance came after a couple of minutes when hard work from Mogensen saw him charge down the goalkeeper’s clearance, but the ball fell kindly for Seoul as they managed to clear.

Just 10 minutes later, though, The Bees would have their lead in the same circumstances as the first chance as Mogensen managed to slide and block the clearance into the Seoul net.

That preceded a spell where Seoul managed to get a foothold in the game as chances fell for Kim Wonsik and Lee Sungjae.

Despite them seeing more of the ball, The Bees carried an excellent threat on the counterattack, and it paid off on 35 minutes when Mogensen received the ball well before playing a one-two with Yearwood and driving at goal before slotting calmly into the net.

It was almost three in a similar move just a couple of moments later when Yearwood won the ball back high before driving into the box and cutting the ball back towards Mogensen, but he was unable to connect.

Yumin then made sure that his side would get on the scoresheet before the break after good individual skill saw him drive in from the left before lashing an effort high into the goal past Nathan Shepperd.

The Bees then started the second half similar to the first and just seconds in a ball over the top would find Mogensen who latched onto it well before shooting, but the onrushing keeper did well to make the block.

The third did come just a few minutes later when Yearwood found Mogensen whose first touch took him away from the Seoul defenders before he threaded the ball through to Majka on the right who shot low across goal to make it 3-1.

FC Seoul then managed to gain more of the ball going into the latter stages of the second period and they got their second on 74 minutes when they did well down the right before a low cross was sent into the box before Chanhee turned the ball home with a first time finish.

The third followed shortly after Alibaev hit a powerful free-kick which smashed the crossbar and bounced down before Dongjin managed to head the ball home after the ball bounced down off the line.

A late chance then fell to substitute Christian Tue Jensen with a free-kick but he could only direct his effort straight at the Seoul wall as the match finished 3-3.
