Professional soccer K League 1 Jeonbuk escaped from a two-game losing streak thanks to the performance of Amano Jun, who transferred from Ulsan. Daejeon, which was promoted from the K-League 2 and went undefeated in five games at the beginning of the season, was hit by Suwon FC.
In the home game against Incheon held on the 9th, Jeonbuk won 2-0 thanks to consecutive goals from Amano in the 12th minute and Hafa Silva in the 43rd minute. Amano scored his first goal after his transfer. Jeonbuk, who competed for the championship with Ulsan last year and stayed in 2nd place, took 3 points in 3 games and rose to 7th place with 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses (7 points). Jeonbuk coach Kim Sang-sik said, “Before the game, I asked the players to ‘win the game.’ The players’ determination was strong and they won. It is true that we are pursued mentally. it’s all my responsibility I will slowly think about what is lacking and prepare well for the remaining games without haste.”
Daejeon, which was promoted to the first division after 8 years since 2015 and was on a winning streak at the beginning of the season, lost 3-5 in an away match against Suwon FC. Suwon FC conceded two goals in the first half, but scored five goals in the second half, putting cold water on Daejeon’s upswing. Daejeon fell from 2nd to 4th (3 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss).
In the game on the 8th, last year’s K-League 1 champion Ulsan defeated Suwon 2-1 and won 6 straight victories after the opening. Ulsan continued its record of the most consecutive opening wins thanks to two goals by Rubiksson, the “Swedish Express”. If Ulsan adds one win in an away game against Daejeon on the 16th, it will tie the record for the most consecutive wins since the opening of the K-League. Suwon (1998) and Seongnam (2003) recorded 7 consecutive wins.
