Jeonbuk Motors Vs Daejeon Citizen: Preview

Jeonbuk Motors Vs Daejeon Citizen

Repeating the same fate as their last away trip will be a somewhat sizeable task for Daejeon with the Purples heading to Jeonju to take on the K League Champions Jeonbuk Motors on Saturday.

If this was boxing it could be billed as a champion vs champion bout with both sides lifting silverware in their respective divisions last year.

Jeonbuk triumphed at the very peak of the K League pyramid whilst Daejeon earned their right to be on the same one by celebrating the K League Challenge championship.

In reality, though, it will be a tough ask for Daejeon. Jeonbuk pull no punches and are riding high, eight points clear at the top of the Classic.

Daejeon, meanwhile are three points adrift at the foot of the table.

But, with performances and results showing signs of improvement, Citizen will be looking to follow up on last week’s hard-fought point away at Jeonnam last weekend by dealing the killer blow to the Jeonju-based side.

But, if they are to do so they would have to record their first win at Fort Jeonju in three years.

On 5th August 2012 Daejeon picked up a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from Kevin Oris, the Belgium target man who switched the purple of Daejeon for the green of Jeonju the year after.

A result similar to that one would send the traveling faithful back to Daejeon with smiles on their faces.

In terms of team news, Hwang In-Beom could be in line for a return after serving his suspension whilst Brazilian striker Sassa is said to be the subject of a late fitness test.

Club skipper Yoon Won-Il’s looks set to remain out of the fold but forward Jung Seo-Woon will be hoping to keep his place in Coach Cho’s starting eleven.


A win for Daejeon could see them move level on points with Busan whilst Jeonbuk could stretch their lead at the top beyond eight points after this top vs bottom clash.
