Ahead of the Jeonbuk Hyundai match, Jeju United is more confident than ever.
Jeju will play the 8th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ with Jeonbuk at 4:30 pm on the 23rd at Jeju World Cup Stadium. Jeju is in 7th place with 8 points (2 wins, 2 draws, 3 losses). Jeonbuk is 9th with 7 points (2 wins, 1 draw, 4 losses).
Even before the season, Jeju was pointed out as an opponent threatening Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk. They had good results last season and showed their potential under coach Nam Ki-il, and Joo Min-gyu and others left ahead of this season, but expectations were high as they made sure to reinforce various positions. However, after the opening, they went on a winless streak with 2 draws and 3 losses in 5 matches.
It was more difficult due to sluggish performance and a series of injuries. Jeju, who had been struggling, won their first league victory by winning 1-0 with Seo Jin-soo’s winning goal in the Gangwon FC expedition. After the game, the Jeju staff, including manager Nam Ki-il, burst into tears and enjoyed the joy. Jeju, who recorded a dramatic 2-1 victory in the FA Cup match against Changwon City Hall, defeated Suwon Samsung 3-2 and won three consecutive victories in the official match. 스포츠토토
I gained a lot. They won all three of their hellish expedition matches, and transfer students such as Hays, Yuri, and Kim Seung-seop showed a complete set-up. New options such as Lim Dong-hyuk and Lee Ki-hyuk were also confirmed, and injured players such as Lim Chae-min and Lee Chang-min returned to normal operation of the squad. Returning home after a long absence, Jeju invites Jeonbuk. There are many positive signs, so I am confident.
Unlike Jeju, Jeonbuk is shaking. They lost 4 of the 7 matches they played after opening. The situation is so serious that director Kim Sang-shik says, “It’s not like Jeonbuk.” Conflict with the fans is severe, and voices are emerging about the resignation of director Kim Sang-sik and Jeonbuk personnel. In addition, the physically demanding Jeju expedition is a burden for Jeonbuk.
There is great interest in making Jeju more difficult for Jeonbuk. If you look at the 4 matches last season, they were tight with 2 wins and 2 losses. If Jeonbuk is defeated, Jeju will win 4 consecutive victories in the official game and 3 consecutive victories in the league. It is sure to catch the mood.
