Jeonbuk Hyundai, which boasts the most wins in the K League (9 times), is in danger. Rather than challenging for their 10th trophy, they are in danger of finishing the season in Group B (7th to 12th places) in the final round. This is the worst situation the club has ever encountered in its history.
Jeonbuk remains in 7th place with 13 wins, 7 draws, and 12 losses, and 46 points in the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’, which has only 33 rounds left, which will kick off at 3 p.m. on the 8th. If you don’t get out of your current position, you can’t avoid the lowest ranking since the promotion system was implemented.
The opponent in the 33rd round is 5th place FC Seoul (12 wins, 11 draws, 9 losses, 47 points). Jeonbuk will play a burdensome away game at Seoul World Cup Stadium. Currently, the only teams that have confirmed their entry into Final A are leader Ulsan Hyundai (66 points), second place Pohang Steelers (58 points), and third place Gwangju FC (51 points). 4th place Daegu FC (48 points) ~ Seoul ~ 6th place Incheon United (47 points) ~ Jeonbuk compete for the remaining three positions.
The scenario given to Jeonbuk is simple. You absolutely need 3 victory points. If there is a tie, we need to look at the number of cases. However, there is no way Seoul, which has shown its own level of competitiveness under the acting manager Kim Jin-gyu system and is capable of advancing to the semifinals on its own, will retreat from home. It is encouraging that they have maintained an overwhelming advantage of 19 games undefeated (14 wins, 5 draws) against Seoul since July 2017, but looking at Jeonbuk’s recent performance, we cannot be optimistic about the situation.
Jeonbuk, which has become accustomed to losing since coach Dan Petrescu (Romania) took office, is on a steep downward spiral. In the end, on the 4th, in the second match away to Bangkok United (Thailand) in the 2023-2024 season Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League group stage, they lost 2-3 after a poor performance and brought shame on themselves.
The number of injuries continues due to insufficient pre-season preparation, and although several key players are participating in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, the bench’s incompetence is questionable considering that the remaining players also have limited skills. They failed to take control of the team by taking actions without direction or principles, and they are insisting on colorless tactics and role distribution that do not match the opponent analysis.메이저사이트
Players are not free either. Those who boast the highest value are unable to prove their worth on the pitch at all. Moreover, their organizational skills are like a grain of sand, and their improvisation is also zero. It just repeats the lethargic performance. Jeonbuk, which returned to Korea on the 5th, has set up a mini-camp in Songdo, Incheon and is preparing for an expedition to Seoul, but the eyes of those around it are only prickly.
