Jeonbuk Hyundai has returned to an upward trend. After dramatically advancing to Final A, they achieved a thrilling victory from the first game of the final round. The ticket to advance to the Asian Champions League, which had been so far away, has begun to appear before our eyes. However, overcoming the ‘natural enemy’ Pohang Steelers is the priority.
Jeonbuk will play the K League 1 round 35 home game against Pohang at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 2 p.m. on the 28th.
Jeonbuk, currently in 4th place with 15 wins, 7 draws, and 12 losses (52 points), needs to continue winning. We need to close the gap with higher ranked teams. Fortunately, the atmosphere has been good lately. Jeonbuk defeated FC Seoul on the 8th and took the last train to Final A, and won a dramatic 2-1 victory against Daegu FC on the 21st, the first day of the final round. In the 45th minute of the second half, Jeonbuk striker Gustavo scored the winning goal.토스카지노 도메인
If Jeonbuk captures Pohang as well, they can enjoy a steep rise. Rankings are rankings, but from Jeonbuk’s perspective, there is a reason why they must win this game. This is because they met three times this season and lost all of them. Among these, there were two games that fell apart due to the winning goal being scored in the last minute of the second half.
Pohang has 15 wins, 14 draws, and 5 losses (59 points) and is in second place in the league. This is a formidable opponent. However, if Jeonbuk wins, the gap between the two teams will be narrowed in an instant. They can also seize the opportunity to put pressure on 3rd place Gwangju FC (57 points). However, if they lose this game, they will have lost all four matches against Pohang. Humiliating appearances must be avoided.

Baek Seung-ho, Jeonbuk’s starting midfielder, also pledged revenge. Baek Seung-ho said through Jeonbuk Club, “The team’s current atmosphere is good. Our goal is to win all remaining games.” He added, “We showed a weak performance against Pohang this season. However, if many fans come to the stadium and support us, we will repay you with victory.” He promised.
Jeonbuk won 3-0 against Lion City (Singapore) in the Asian Champions League group stage on the 25th. At the same time, the physical distribution of the main players was also successful. Baek Seung-ho and Song Min-gyu started the game on the bench and conserved their strength. Veteran defender Hong Jeong-ho returned from injury and contributed to the victory against Lion City. The defense gained strength.
Although there are some disappointing aspects, the previously unstable defense appears to have become more solid. Jeonbuk won two of its three consecutive wins without conceding a goal. Also, the attack is sharp. Kyo-Won Han’s scoring ability stood out after scoring in the match against Seoul and Daegu, and Seon-min Moon also performed the much-talked-about ‘Slickback Ceremony’ after scoring a key goal in the match against Lion City.
Will Jeonbuk be able to avoid losing all four games against Pohang? This is an opportunity to restore your pride and challenge yourself to rise in the rankings.
