Jeonbuk Hyundai will face Incheon United in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 on June 6 at 7 p.m. at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. Currently, Jeonbuk is in fifth place with 37 points, while Incheon is in eighth place with 33 points.

Jeonbuk has found stability under Dan Petrescu, and although they suffered their first setback in a long time with a 1-2 loss away to Pohang in their last match, they were unbeaten in five official matches (four wins and one draw). They have jumped up to fifth in the standings. A win in this match could see them leapfrog FC Seoul (38 points) into third place.

There is no stopping Jeonbuk, especially in the ‘Jeonju Province’. Jeonbuk is on an eight-game home winning streak, including a recent FA Cup match. Since April against Gangwon (0-1), the team has always declared victory in front of their home fans.

Against Incheon, they were even stronger. Jeonbuk hasn’t lost a single game in its last 11 home matches against Incheon, winning seven and drawing four. It’s been seven years since 2016 without a loss. They are also 1-1 against Incheon this season, with a 2-0 win at home and a 0-0 draw away.

[[OSEN=Incheon, Reporter Kim Sung-rak] On the afternoon of July 16, Incheon Football Stadium hosted the ‘Hana OneQ K League 1 2023’ match between Incheon United and Daejeon One.Incheon Mugosa greeted the crowd before the start of the match. 2023.07.16 /ksl0919@osen.co.kr

Incheon will try to break the Jeonju jinx with the return of Mugosa. Mugosa, who hasn’t worn an Incheon jersey in over a year, will start this match, marking his return to the K League after 407 days.

Coach Petrescu knows Mugosa well. “I know that Mugosa played for Incheon before and was their top scorer. I also know where he failed at Bissell Kobe. Even though he failed in Japan, both coach Cho Sung-hwan and the Incheon players know him well, so we have to be careful. “Especially in the box, he can smell a goal,” he warned.

Jeonbuk will be without Lee Dong-joon. “After the match against PSG, he missed a day of training due to fatigue,” said Petrescu. We didn’t want to take any risks as we have an FA Cup match on Wednesday.”

Jeonbuk will play again in three days after facing PSG in Busan. Will there be any physical strain? “We decided to give them a maximum of 45 minutes,” says Petrescu. I was more concerned about traveling to and from Jeonju and Busan than the game. To be honest, I was a bit worried. I hope the players will recover well and be ready for the game anyway.”

Since joining Jeonbuk, Petrescu has been using Park Jin-seop as a defensive midfielder instead of a center back. Will we see Park in the midfield in the future? “He’s done very well when I’ve used him as an anchor in front of the defense, so I don’t want to change that now,” Petrescu said.

New signing Park Jae-yong will make his Jeonbuk debut. “It’s a little bit too early to evaluate him. We’ve only been training together for about 10 days. But he showed some good things against PSG, especially his ball-keeping and delivery. I expect him to do the same today. I even expect him to score.”
