The atmosphere has changed. From now on, we must definitely ride the upward trend.
Jeonbuk will play the third match of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL) group F group stage against Lion City (Singapore) at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 25th.
Jeonbuk suffered a huge shock when they lost 2-3 to Bangkok FC in an away game in Bangkok, Thailand on the 4th. After struggling against Bangkok, which was evaluated as one level below, they bowed out. Losing in the Southeast Asia trip wasn’t such a huge surprise, but since it was a defeat that occurred at a time when the team fell from K League 1 to Final B, there was a sense of crisis that went beyond the result.
It was a trend that could easily lead to a long-term slump, but Jeonbuk succeeded in changing the trend. The starting point was a dramatic victory in the final game of the K-League 1 regular round against FC Seoul, played four days after the trip to Bangkok, and a place in Final A. For the first time in the club’s history, it succeeded in rebounding, erasing the sense of crisis that it could fall to Final B.
Jeonbuk found stability in terms of power and atmosphere through the return of five key players (Baek Seung-ho, Park Jin-seop, Song Min-gyu, Park Jae-yong, and Kim Jung-hoon) who were selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games. The good trend continued into the first game of the final round. Jeonbuk won 2-1 away to Daegu FC on the 21st, securing their second consecutive win. It has been almost 100 days since early July that Jeonbuk recorded consecutive wins in K League 1. In the meantime, they continued to struggle in K-League 1, but were able to ride the upward trend by winning consecutive games at the most important time. They remain in 4th place, 5 points behind 3rd place Gwangju FC (57 points), but they can aim for a comeback as they still have a match remaining.
Since the atmosphere has changed, it is essential to go to Lion City first. Lion City is an underdog whose power is several levels lower than Jeonbuk. Jeonbuk was placed in the easiest group in the East Asian group. It was surprising that we lost to Bangkok, but we definitely need to win against Lion City or Kitsch. In fact, what kind of performance and content will lead to victory is more important than the result itself.굿모닝토토 주소
Starting with this game, Jeonbuk will play a series of important schedules. They will have a home game against Pohang Steelers on the 28th and an FA Cup semi-final against Incheon United on the 1st of next month. The schedule is closely spaced at 3-4 day intervals, and I cannot give up on any of the games. Rotation to allocate stamina also seems necessary.
