Can Incheon United capitalize on Jeonbuk Hyundai's drop in form?


Incheon United come into this sold out home game with a realistic chance of beating defending champions but out-of-form Jeonbuk Hyundai. Incheon last beat Jeonbuk a little over three years ago and will be also looking to avenge a five-nil hammering they suffered a few months ago in the reverse fixture.

Recent Form

Starting with the hosts Incheon United their recent form as been a little mixed with two wins, two draws and one defeat. They were maybe a little fortunate to snatch a late equalizer last weekend against Suwon FC, but were strong when beating Gwangju a couple of weeks ago.

Moving over to the visitors Jeonbuk Hyundai who have had a nightmare month. They have picked up just a single point from their previous four league games and have lost their last three in the league to Ulsan, Suwon Bluewings and Daegu FC. Moral dropped even further during the week as they crashed out of the cup as defending champions to semi-pros Yangju Citizen on penalties.


What to Watch

Incheon United are starting in to score more freely at this point of the season. That maybe partly down to the return of star Stefan Mugosa. But also the even improving form of Costa Rican midfielder Elias Aguilar as well as captain and number seven Kim Do-hyeok. Both midfielders have been scoring creating openings at this stage of the K League 1 season for Incheon.
 
Taking a quick look at the Incheon defensive line which can be unpredictable. Young keeper Kim Dong-heon will continue as their normal number one Lee Tae-hui is still unavailable. Oh Jae-suk and Oh Ban-suk bring the experience to the Incheon defensively line, but can lack pace.

Now looking at the visitors defending champions Jeonbuk Hyundai. They have a wealth of talent up front with former Pohang striker Stanilav Iljutcenko standing out with his nine goals during his first season in Jeonbuk Green. Also watch out for Kim Bo-kyung who is generally the creator of most of Jeonbuk's openings in the final third.

Defensively Jeonbuk Hyundai recently have struggled. Song Bum-keun is their number one pick in goal, but can be let down at time by his backline. They have shipped eight goals in their last three league games, which is out of character.

Who to Watch



Montenegrin International and star striker for Incheon Stefan Mugosa has now reigned his match fitness. He has two goals from his last two games including a penalty last weekend deep deep into injury time against Suwon FC. These goals have extended his lead at top of the all time Incheon United scoring charts. He'll be the big danger from Jeonbuk this coming weekend as Incheon look to pick up a surprise three points. Incheon are also thankful he was omitted from the Montenegro squad for their upcoming summer friendlies.
