Preview: Bucheon 1995 Vs Daejeon Citizen

Bucheon 1995 Vs Daejeon Citizen

K League Challenge Round 4 Sunday 17th April 2016 14:00 KST

Daejeon Vs Bucheon November 2014
Had it not been for Gyeongnam’s points deduction, it would have been Daejeon propping up the table heading into round 4, having lost their first three games without so much as mustering even one goal.

If the Purples are to mount a serious promotion challenge this term, which will have been within Coach Choi Moon-Sik’s remit, then getting back to winning ways soon is an absolute must.

Sunday sees Daejeon travel north to Gyeonggi-do to take on Bucheon 1995, a side that Daejeon had great success over last time they locked horns.

Whilst Daejeon have floundered, Bucheon have enjoyed an indifferent start to the campaign having won one, drawn one and lost one.

A win for Daejeon would ease the pressure on under fire boss Coach Choi Moon-Sik and, in the process, could move Daejeon up to 8th.

Bucheon, who welcome Daejeon on the back of a 1-0 away win at Chungju last weekend, could move into the playoff spots should they disperse of the struggling Daejeon.

Previous Meetings

Having spent most of their time in different levels of the Korean footballing pyramid, these two sides first met just a mere two seasons ago.

During Daejeon’s 2014 promotion winning season, the Purples were unbeaten against their Gyeonggi-do counterparts thanks to three wins and a draw.

Funnily enough, it was almost exactly two years ago when these two sides met for their first ever encounter.

That afternoon Citizen took all three points back to Daejeon thanks to goals from Adriano and Rim Chang-Woo.

Adriano put Daejeon ahead after 16 minutes only for Rodrigo Parana to equalise a mere three minutes later.

With the game petering out and looking as though it was going to end in a draw, Rim Chang-Woo popped up from right back to net a 90th minute winner.

Rim Chang-Woo seemed to make a habit of scoring later winners that year with the on-loan Ulsan defender famously netting the winner for South Korea in the 2014 Asian Games final vs North Korea.

In June of 2014 at Daejeon World Cup Stadium, the Purples eased past Bucheon with a 1-0 win thanks to a Seo Myeong-Won goal on 34 minutes.

A month later Daejeon travelled back up to Bucheon and managed to salvage a draw having gone behind in the first half.

Min Hyun-Gong put the home side ahead but Vanderlei, the Brazlian striker, levelled for the Purples on 62 minutes with a close-range effort.

The final game between these two sides in 2014 ended in another Daejeon win.

Influential midfielder Jeong Seok-Min scored the only goal of the game which sealed the three points and indeed the K League Challenge title for Daejeon.

Team News

On loan Jeju United striker Seo Dong-Hyun has been ruled out until June with a facial injury.

With Coach Choi Moon-Sik seemingly not afraid to weild the axe, wholesale changes could be made again following the home defeat to Ansan last Saturday.


As for yet promising youngster Hwang In-Beom has not featured, neither has Ko Mon-Hyeok despite both featuring heavily under Choi Mook-Sik last year.
