‘Dakgong’ revived, Jeonbuk set to fight for K League 1 title

Defeat Jeju to climb to fourth place
Petrescu’s first win in the league

Jeonbuk Hyundai is back. They’re back to the way they were when they were dominating the K League 1. After falling to 10th place in the first half of the season, Jeonbuk has risen to fourth place thanks to the revitalization of its proprietary ‘Dakgong’ (shut up and attack) offense. With Jeonbuk on the rise, the battle for the second half of the K League 1 standings is expected to heat up.

Jeonbuk has become a fierce team in its last 10 matches, winning six, drawing two and losing two, and collecting 20 points. Jeonbuk also won 2-0 against Jeju United at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Nov. 1, thanks to an own goal in the ninth minute and a wedge goal in the 38th minute after an explosive run by Moon Sun-min. It was encouraging to see the team keep a clean sheet in the absence of left-back Kim Jin-soo, who was injured with the national team. With the win, Jeonbuk jumped from eighth to fourth place in one fell swoop with a record of 9 W, 3 D, 8 L (30 points) this season.

It was a dismal start to the season for the title favorites. After opening the season with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 6 losses (10 points), the team slipped to 10th place. Fans blocked the team bus to protest the performance, and former coach Kim Sang-sik eventually stepped down.온라인바카라

Jeonbuk then hired Dan Petrescu to lead the team in the second half of the season. Petrescu lost his debut match, but the team defeated Jeju on the same day to earn their first win in the K League 1. In particular, Jeonbuk scored six goals in three games with the new coach, including a match in the Korean Football Association (FA) Cup, signaling the resurgence of the Dakgong. Jeonbuk is on a roll and looking to overtake second place. Jeonbuk is four points behind the second-place Pohang Steelers (9W, 7D, 2L – 34 points).
