Jeju United is aiming for 2nd place and the club’s first 6 consecutive victories in the first division.
Jeju, led by coach Nam Ki-il, will play an away game against FC Seoul in the 14th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 20th. Jeju (20 goals) and Seoul (27 goals) are tied with 23 points, but Seoul is ahead in the number of points and is in second place. In addition, Jeju is the first team in the club’s history to challenge for 6 consecutive wins in K-League 1.
Jeju recently succeeded in winning 5 games in a row and is enjoying a steep rise. It is the driving force that raised the ranking, which once fell to the bottom, to third place. During this period, he scored 13 goals and conceded only one goal. This contrasts with only seven points and 11 conceded runs in the eight games played prior to the five-game winning streak.
The score distribution is also even. Seo Jin-soo and Hays are the team’s top scorers with 4 goals. In particular, against Suwon FC (5-0 win) in the 13th round, Seo Jin-soo, Ahn Tae-hyeon, Yuri Jonatan, and Kim Ju-gong scored goals. At the same time, Jeju’s goal difference has already reached +8. As the injured returned one after another, the air-defense balance found a sense of stability. Above all, the three-back line where Jeong-woon and Lim Chae-min returned has no gaps. Defender Kim Joo-won, who missed the match against Suwon FC due to gastroenteritis, is also on standby.먹튀검증
Coach Nam said through the club, “One of the reasons the recent game is going well is that effective attacks are coming out. As the defense is solid, there is room for offense. The match against Seoul is also an important match. We have overcome difficulties and become stronger.”
In the first match of the season, Seoul won 2-1 in Jeju. In the last 10 matches, Jeju has an overwhelming advantage with 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. Seoul, which faces Jeju, has been keeping the top ranks with its hot offensive power. He scored the most goals in K-League 1 with 27 goals in 13 matches. The offensive route is so diverse that a total of 12 players, including Na Sang-ho (8 goals), who ranks first in scoring, tasted goals.
However, in Seoul, coach Ahn Ik-soo, who was sent off due to accumulated warnings for protesting against Ulsan Hyundai (2-3 loss), cannot sit on the bench. According to the new rules introduced this season, head coach Kim Jin-gyu will attend the bench as well as the pre- and post-game interviews instead of coach Ahn.
