Jeonbuk Hyundai, which has not won since the opening, will challenge for a home win again in the last home game ‘Honam Derby’ before the A-match break.
Jeonbuk Hyundai and Gwangju FC will face 메이저놀이터 off at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 12th in the 3rd round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023, the return of the Honam Derby.
Jeonbuk is in 10th place with 1 draw and 1 loss without a win in the previous 2 games. Gwangju is 6th, higher than Jeonbuk with 1 win and 1 loss and 3 points.
Jeonbuk, which gave away the championship to Ulsan last season, is also off to a bad start this season. After losing 1-2 in the away game in the opening game of the league against Ulsan, the opening game at home against Suwon Samsung was also tied 1-1 after a lethargic performance.
Cho Kyu-seong, the team’s main striker, scored his first goal of the season with a penalty kick, but his body was heavy. In addition, Lee Dong-jun, who played a great role in the Ulsan expedition, also left due to an injury, making it difficult to use the side.
Still, the concentration of Jeonbuk’s defense stood out.
Park Jin-seop, who is playing as a center back along with Hong Jeong-ho, succeeded in clearing as many as 32 in two games, and is tied for first place overall in the K-League 1. As long as the defense is strong enough, the attack can be switched, and if the decision power is improved from the front, you can win.
Gwangju is blowing a new wind with bold soccer that is not like a promoted team. Gwangju, which won 1-0 in the Suwon Samsung expedition, was considered a force to threaten the existing teams based on its well-organized organization and vigorous activity.
The home opening game against FC Seoul was as good as expected, but after the start of the second half, Um Ji-sung’s accumulated warnings gave way and he suffered his first defeat after promotion. Um Ji-seong will miss the Jeonbuk expedition as a punishment.
