Jeonbuk with nowhere to turn and unbeaten Ulsan to face off.

Jeonbuk Hyundai and Ulsan Hyundai will meet in the fourth round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Tuesday. It will be the first meeting between the two teams in the K League 1 this season.

In their last meeting in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, Jeonbuk came up short. However, they will try to put the disappointment behind them.

Jeonbuk will be looking for a win at home. The team, who were favorites to win the title after strengthening their squad before the season, are in desperate need of a rebound after a recent slump.

They have prepared for this match with great determination. 토토사이트 During the A-League break, coach Dan Petrescu and his squad prepared thoroughly. They checked the fitness of the injured players. They’re pinning their hopes on foreign player Thiago.

This season

Jeonbuk brought in proven players from the K League, including Thiago, Lee Young-jae, and Kim Tae-hwan, but the lack of goals in the early stages of the season didn’t help their cause.

Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu said, “We’re creating chances, but we’re not converting them into goals. Last year, we had trouble creating chances. This year, the problem is that we are not converting them into goals,” he said, emphasizing that the team needs to improve its finishing ability. He is hopeful that this will change, especially if frontline striker Thiago is in form.

Thiago scored a sensational goal against Suwon FC after coming on as a late substitute. Clearly, Thiago is a player who can score goals at any time if he connects well with his passes. Park Jin-seob, who scored his A-Match debut goal in the second leg against Thailand, is also set to face Ulsan.

Ulsan has been making steady progress early in the season. Jeonbuk, however, will not be backing down. Ulsan is unbeaten (5 wins, 2 draws) in seven matches in 2024. Despite a disappointing 3-3 draw against Incheon United in the K League before the A-Match break, Ulsan is cruising in both the league and ACL.

The strength of Ulsan is that any player can step up. 파워볼실시간 Last year’s top scorer in the K League, Lee Min-kyu, has yet to score in the league. However, Lee Dong-kyung, who joined the club in April, leads the league in goals and assists with three goals and two assists in three games. Martin Adam also had a multi-goal game against Incheon.

Both Jeonbuk and Ulsan are desperate for a win. Of course, they’re both going into the match with the same mindset. All eyes are on the ‘Hyundai House Derby’.
