Jeonbuk Hyundai and Daegu FC will virtually play a ‘six-point game’.
Jeonbuk and Daegu will face off in the 32nd round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 30th.
Jeonbuk is in 5th place with 13 wins, 7 draws, 11 losses, and 46 points. Daegu (11 wins, 12 draws, 8 losses) is in 6th place with a 1 point difference.
There are only two games left in the K League 1 regular round. With 4 spots left in Final A, a total of six teams, from 3rd place Gwangju FC to 8th place Daejeon Hana Citizens, will engage in a fierce battle, excluding leader Ulsan Hyundai and 2nd place Pohang Steelers, who have confirmed their advancement.
5th place Jeonbuk will play Daegu on this day and then face 4th place FC Seoul on the 8th of next month. Among the six teams aiming to advance to Final A, Jeonbuk is the only one that will play all of its remaining games against rival teams.
In other words, Jeonbuk’s remaining two games are so-called ‘6-point games’ where a win will be decisive and a loss will be fatal. This is why the Daegu match is so important.
Jeonbuk had been away from victory for five games since the Incheon United match on August 6, but succeeded in changing the mood by beating Gwangju FC 1-0 in the last round.스포츠토토
Jeonbuk is the only team in K League 1 that has never fallen to Final B. Jeonbuk wants to maintain its pride this season as well.
In the first match against Jeonju City this season, Jeonbuk defeated Daegu 1-0.
Jeonbuk has faced Daegu at home 6 times since 2020 until this round 32, boasting an overwhelming record of 5 wins and 1 draw. I am determined to continue this momentum.
If Daegu loses to Jeonbuk again this time, they must defeat Suwon FC in the 33rd round and accumulate 48 points before watching the results of other teams.
Daegu currently has the lowest score (33 goals) among Final A competing teams. We are in a disadvantageous situation when it comes to scoring multiple goals. However, it is comforting to know that the team is on a good track with an undefeated streak in the last 5 games (3 wins, 2 draws) and no goals in 4 consecutive games.
Daegu even achieved three consecutive wins despite the absence of ‘ace’ Sejingha due to a rib injury, Jae-won Hwang’s absence due to being selected to the Asian Games national team, and Beltola, a promising midfield player, unable to participate due to a sent-off punishment.
Daegu is determined not to give up even in Jeonju Castle.
