Jeonbuk Hyundai returns to the Daejeon World Cup Stadium for the first time in 2,931 days, and the team is ready to take on the crisis-ridden Daejeon Hana Citizen.
Daejeon Hana Citizen and Jeonbuk Hyundai are set to meet for the second time this season in the 22nd round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium on April 12 at 7:30 pm. The teams have already met in the first match of the season on April 26, Round 9, with Daejeon coming away with a comfortable victory after 3998 days, thanks to back-to-back goals from Anton and Lee Jin-hyun. At the time, Jeonbuk was in a terrible mood, with fans boycotting the team in support of former head coach Kim Sang-sik, while Daejeon was in high spirits after being promoted and securing victories over two of the league’s biggest teams in Ulsan and Bukchon.
What is the current mood of both teams ahead of the second matchup of the season? The mood of both teams seems to have changed from the first matchup. For starters, the home team is in a somewhat less favorable situation. Since their promotion, Daejeon have been on a good run, winning 6, drawing 3, and losing 3 of their 12 league games to sit at the top of the table, but since round 13, they have only won 1 game until the last round, round 21. Since Round 13, Daejeon have gone on a ‘winless’ streak with 1 win, 5 draws, and 3 losses, and in their last 4 games, they’ve gone winless in a row, earning just 1 point.
Jeonbuk, on the other hand, will be in high spirits after suffering a humiliating defeat in their last meeting. Following the resignation of Kim Sang-sik, acting head coach Kim Doo-hyun and Dan Petrescu have turned things around with seven wins, two draws, and two losses in 11 league games. In four official matches, including the FA Cup, since Petrescu’s appointment, the team has won three and drawn one, keeping two clean sheets and scoring multiple goals in every match except for the match against Gwangju, which was Petrescu’s debut.
Can Jeonbuk get revenge on Pohang?
The upwardly mobile Jeonbuk have redeemed themselves against the teams that defeated them in the first round of the Robin, taking revenge on all but Pohang (their second loss of the season) in the second round of the Robin.
Starting with a 2-0 win at home against Ulsan Hyundai, who handed them an upset loss in the season opener, Jeonbuk avenged their humiliating defeat in the first round of the Robin with wins over Daegu FC (1-0), Suwon FC (3-1), and Gangwon FC (2-1). The only team to date to fail to record a win in their two meetings is Kim Ki-dong’s Pohang Steelers (2-1 loss, 1-0 loss). 메이저놀이터
Aside from Pohang, Jeonbuk now has only Daejeon to seek revenge in the second round of the robin. Jeonbuk has fond memories of their last visit to Daejeon World Cup Stadium, 2931 days ago, when they defeated Daejeon 4-3 in a hard-fought match, thanks to multi-goal performances from Edu and Lee Dong-guk (retired).
With such fond memories, Jeonbuk will want to capitalize on their recent good form and get revenge on Daejeon. Daejeon, on the other hand, is also
