Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in played a rather disappointing game. Lee Kang-in, who played 77 minutes, had no shots or key passes, and his pass success rate was 60%. He attempted to cross twice, but none went straight to his teammate. It was true that it was regrettable even if Real Madrid pushed ahead and Lee Kang-in did not have time to show off his greatest strength, his kicking power and ability to release pressure.
One of the reasons why he was not able to show his strength was that he suffered from too harsh checks. On this day, Lee Kang-in suffered a lot of particularly harsh fouls. From the 1st minute of the first half, Federico Valverde made up his mind to break through Lee Kang-in and rushed in and made his tackle. In the 15th minute of the first half, in a counterattack situation, Nacho intentionally pushed the ball, but the referee declared a no foul.
Antonio Rudiger pushed Lee Kang-in with his hand without the ball. In the 16th minute of the second half, during Mallorca’s attack, the referee declared a foul and the game was stopped. When Lee Kang-in touched the ball, Rudiger ran and pushed it with his hand. Two minutes later, Valverde committed a dangerous tackle and Lee Kang-in complained of pain. The referee gave a yellow card.
Lee Kang-in played a tough game amid intentional checks and rough tackles. He was fortunate that the team won, but it would have been a pity for Lee Kang-in himself that he was not properly involved.
