Contrary to expectations before the season, Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United, which are hovering in the mid-table, clash.
Jeonbuk and Incheon will face off in the 6th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at 4:30 pm on the 9th at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.
Jeonbuk is 8th with 1 win, 1 draw, 3 losses, 4 points, 5 points, ahead of Suwon FC (3 points), and Incheon is 7th with 1 win, 2 draws, 2 losses, 5 points. 온라인바카라
Both teams, which were expected to be in the top four teams at the beginning of the season, are in a crisis situation where they are in the mid-table.
Jeonbuk is in a similar situation to last year. Jeonbuk, which recorded 4 points at the end of the 5th round last season, is the same this season as well, and is currently on a two-game losing streak.
Jeonbuk’s offensive and defensive balance has all collapsed. Above all, defensive insecurity is the biggest challenge. Of the 3 games lost this season, 2 games and 1 draw were all conceded by allowing a tie or reverse after the opening goal.
In the previous 5th round match against Pohang Steelers, Jeonbuk had Ryu Jae-moon score the opening goal, but Baek Seong-dong scored the equalizer and Jeka scored the reverse goal in extra time in the second half.
Scoring is no different. Moon Seon-min, Cho Kyu-seong, Song Min-kyu, and Ryu Jae-moon are scoring goals, but foreign attackers such as Gustavo, Hafa Silva, and Andre Luiz are silent. Their recovery is desperately needed.
The situation in Incheon is similar. Incheon, which reinforced its squad by entering the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, was evaluated as a top-tier team, but when the lid was opened, last season’s performance did not come out.
In particular, the defensive power was very different from the previous season. Incheon, which accumulated points based on a solid defense by ranking 4th in the least points conceded last season, is currently the team with the most goals, along with Suwon Samsung in 11th place, conceding 10 points in just 5 games.
The 5 runs in the 4th round of the Gwangju expedition were fatal, but they conceded in all 4 games except for the scoreless match against Daegu in the 5th round.
The attack is also disappointing. I recruited Zerso and Mpoku, but I still have some regrets about the combination. However, it is encouraging that various players such as Lee Myung-joo, Hernandez, Oh Ban-seok, Jerso, and Mpoku score goals.
Last season, the head-to-head record of the two teams was 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, with Jeonbuk having the upper hand. In the last 10 matches, Jeonbuk has an absolute advantage with 5 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss.
Incheon’s 3-1 home win in round 26 last season is their only win over the last 10 matches. Incheon’s most recent victory over Jeonbuk was a 1-0 victory in the 27th round on August 22, 2015.
