Jeonbuk Hyundai is ahead of its fateful second home game.
On the 26th, Jeonbuk played a home game against Daejeon Hana Citizen at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium in the 9th round of the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’, and then on the 29th, they will face off against Gangwon FC in the 10th round at the same place. It is absolutely necessary to sweep. If they do not secure 6 points this time, they will have to be pushed out of the championship race early.
Until the 8th round, Jeonbuk performed below expectations. They went back and forth between the middle and lower ranks and accumulated only 10 points (3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses). In the meantime, Ulsan Hyundai, the ‘family rival’ and defending champion, made a quick run, winning 6 consecutive victories in the opening season.
Once I let out a sigh. Jeonbuk won 2-0 in an away game against Jeju United on the 23rd with consecutive goals from Song Min-gyu and Han Kyo-won. In particular, Song Min-gyu relieved his mind by making up for the fatal error that led to the opponent’s winning goal in an away game (0-1 loss) against Suwon FC on the 15th.
But not everything is positive. The public opinion of fans toward the team that has been silent and refusing to communicate and the team responsible for the repeated lethargic performance and disappointing results is still not good. Coach Kim Sang-sik, who was sent off for protesting at the Jeju game, is predicted to have a ‘cheering boycott’ in this two-game series where he will not be able to keep the bench. 메이저사이트
Jeonbuk’s burden of catching both the content and the results is beyond imagination. Daejeon Hana, which has been on the K-League 1 stage for the first time in eight years after converting to a corporate club, is creating a sensation with its fierce firepower, scoring two goals per game. While the role of Jeonbuk’s key defender Park Jin-seop, who wore the captain’s armband in Daejeon Hana, has become more important, attention is focused on Gustavo and Andre Luis, who will replace Hafa Silva, who received a red card in the Jeju match.
It is not an exaggeration to say that it will depend on the upcoming two consecutive matches whether they will join the competition for the lead with a winning streak or fall into a deep swamp again. If the flow is similar until the 11th round, when each team faces each other once, there is no hope for Jeonbuk.
