Saturday’s visit of Busan is make or break for Daejeon Citizen.

A defeat and those donning the purple jerseys will be condemned to an instant return to the second tier.

A win however could spark the greatest comeback since Jesus Christ.

Daejeon are on a phenomenal run of form of two whole games undefeated with four points from a possible six.

Busan’s form, however, has seen them lose four on the spin.

Last week’s home defeat to Gwangju coupled with Daejeon’s home victory over Jeonnam may just be where Daejeon’s miracle of 2015 stems from.

The beauty of the split system for those fighting relegation is that, at the business end of the season, teams can take points over those in and around them.

If Daejeon do that on Saturday and send Busan back down to the south coast without anything for their endeavours, the gap will be down to just five points.

Game on.

Previous Meetings

In the three previous meetings these two sides have played out this campaign it has been those at the other end of the KTX line that have had the edge.

However, has Busan’s recent form has gone off the rails slightly; Daejeon could record their first win over Busan since 2010.

On 11th September 2010, at Daejeon World Cup Stadium, Fabio Lopes and Ou Kyoung-Jun netted on 45 and 90 minutes respectively to seal a 2-0 win for Citizen.

Daejeon visited Busan on the opening day of the season and suffered a 1-0 defeat in what was a turgid performance.

Alarm bells were ringing on that spring afternoon after Daejeon’s defense was so easily penetrable.

If it wasn’t for the woodwork, it could have been four or five for Busan.

Team News

With no major injury concerns, it is most likely that Coach Choi will go with a similar squad to that that saw off the challenge of Jeonnam last week.
