Jeonbuk ease into Round of 16



Jeonbuk locked into the Round of 16 on their last of 6 group stage games. With a record of 3-2-1 they finished with 11 points, the same as Kashiwa, but will take 2nd place on head to head with the Japanese side.


Jeonbuk is making an amazing 7th straight appearance in the AFC this year, attending this years competition after the won the K-League Classic in 2014. Their most successful run was in 2011, when they hosted the finals and lost to Al Sadd in a shoot out. They boys proved they were worthy of making it back deep into the AFC this year with an impressive 4-1 win at home.

Jeonbuk sluggish first half wasn’t too much for the visiting Chinese side Shandong Lenung. A last minute lob over Kwon Sun Tae from Wong Tong leveled the scored before half time as Jeonbuk only could managed Lee Jae Seung’s header in the 26th minute. The second half was a different story with 3 more goals to come from Kim Hyung Il, Eninho and Edu.

Lee Dong Gook, who holds the record for all time goals scored in the competition, again has the most out of the 4 Korean sides and more than any other Korean played in the league with 4 goals. Those came from only 2 games where he scored twice each, yet wasn’t selected to take a penalty shot for the home side to extend his hold on the record.

Jeonbuk  Motors will again make it to the Round of 16, which is as far as they got last year losing to Pohang Steelers on 1-3 aggregate. They will face Beijing Guaon later this month.
