Strong match at home and Jeju, showing good form on the road, meet.
Daejeon Hana Citizen and Jeju United will face off in the 10th round of the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 30th. Currently, Daejeon is in 4th place with 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, and Jeju is in 7th place with 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses.
Daejeon is undefeated at home this season. Looking at the record of last season before promotion, the last loss at home was the 34th round of the K League 2 in August 22. Since then, they have not lost in 11 games at home. Daejeon, which succeeded in promotion, is showing the qualifications of the promoted team with 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 matches at home this season, including the FA Cup. In addition, during the home game, they scored 2 or more goals in all 4 matches except for the 0-0 draw with Pohang Steelers in the 3rd round, bringing not only the result but also the content of the match. It is a matchup that proves that we are strong at home.
Daejeon, which is on the rise, wants to maintain a good atmosphere by aiming for a streak including an unbeaten run at home. They lost 0-1 in the 8th round away from Daegu, but in the 9th round away from Jeonbuk, they won 2-0 with defender Anton’s overlapping goal and Lee Jin-hyun’s corner kick wonder goal. Daejeon, which added victory to the unprecedented rotation in which 10 key players were replaced against Jeonbuk, predicted that Jeju would become more fearful on the expedition. 안전놀이터
On the other hand, the away team Jeju is strong on the road. Jeju lost 0-2 in the home game against Jeonbuk in the last eight rounds, and has not won 10 games at home since August last season. However, in the 9th round away from Gwangju, Seo Jin-su won 1-0 with a header goal, and is recording 4 consecutive away wins including the FA Cup. Jeju is showing a good figure in the expedition. In addition, with the victory against Gwangju, the team became the 5th team in K-League history to reach 500 wins.
But what Jeju needs is a goal. It is second with the least score (8 goals) due to the disappointing destructive power of the attackers, including Yuri Jonatan. Although the offensive power is somewhat sluggish, the well-established defensive organization centered on veteran defender Kim Oh-gyu and goalkeeper Kim Dong-jun, who was selected as MOM (Man of Match) for his amazing super save in the match against Gwangju, will continue the away winning streak by winning in Daejeon.
The opponent record of both teams is 21 wins, 12 draws, 26 losses based on Daejeon, with Jeju having a slight advantage, and in 2015, when both teams last met in K-League 1 (then K-League Classic), Jeju leads with 2 wins and 1 loss. However, in the 2020 K-League 2 head-to-head match, Daejeon recorded 2 wins and 1 loss, so the direction of the game is unknown.
