Jeonbuk and Suwon played out a 1-1 draw after Han Ho-gang and Han Kyowon exchanged goals in the 26th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Wednesday. .
Both teams exchanged one point. Jeonbuk remained in third place with 41 points (12 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses) and closed the gap to second place Pohang (45 points) to four points.
Suwon moved to 19 points (4 wins, 7 draws, 15 losses). Depending on the result of the match between Gangwon and Ulsan, which kicked off 30 minutes later, Suwon could drop back to the bottom of the table.
Jeonbuk started with a 4-4-2 formation. Ahn Hyun-beom, Jung Tae-wook, Hong Jeong-ho, and Jung Woo-jae formed the defence, with Kim Jung-hoon in goal. Boateng and Park Jin-seop held the midfield, while Baek Seung-ho and Lee Dong-joon flanked them. Hapa Silva and Park Jae-yong were up front.
Suwon countered with a 4-3-3 formation. Ahn Chan-ki was in goal and Kim Tae-hwan, Han Ho-gang, Kim Joo-won, and Jang Ho-ik formed the defence. Kazuki, Ko Seung-beom, and Bassani protected the midfield, while Kim Joo-chan, Weric Pope, and Lee Sang-min were up front.
Lee Sang-min suffered an injury to his right ankle at the start of the match, forcing Kim Kyung-joong to come on in the fifth minute.
Jeonbuk took the lead in the first half. They frequently looked to score with crosses following straightforward flanking runs. After gaining possession of the ball, Suwon started to move forward with Kazuki and Ko Seung-beom, looking for gaps in the Jeonbuk defence. They also tried to preemptively block Jeonbuk’s advances with strong forward pressure.
After stopping Jeonbuk’s attack, Suwon had the first laugh. In the 30th minute, Kazuki’s corner kick rattled the net with a header from Han Ho-gang, who was waiting at the far post. Suwon took the lead from a set piece.
Jeonbuk continued to fight back. In the 35th minute, Boateng’s cross found Hapa Silva, who headed it out for a corner. From this corner, Baek Seung-ho’s cross was headed by Boateng, but it was deflected by the defence and calmly caught by Ahn Chan-ki.
In the 44th minute, Baek Seung Ho had an open chance with a long pass from Boa Teng, but his shot hit the crossbar after finding Ahn Chan Ki’s foot.
Suwon continued to play smartly, finding space after the goal and went into the half without conceding an equaliser.
Jeonbuk took off Hapa Silva and Lee Dong-joon at the start of the second half and introduced Han Kyo-won and Moon Sun-min to speed up the attack. After the substitutions, the flank attack became sharper and targeted Suwon.
However, Jeonbuk’s attack was not going to be easy. In the 16th minute of the second half, Petrescu made the decision to remove Park Jin-seob and introduce Gustavo. Suwon also made a change at the same time, removing Popo and introducing Gum Yeol.
Jeonbuk quickly equalised. In the 20th minute, there were several chances after a corner kick. Jung Tae-wook’s shot hit the post and Gustavo’s shot was also blocked by the goalkeeper before the defence failed to clear the ball, which Han Gyo-won tumbled over and slid in to rattle the net.
Suwon made another change, dropping Kim Tae-hwan and Jang Ho-ik and bringing on Boultuis and Lee Ki-jae.
Jeonbuk were lacking in accuracy in their flanking attacks and were unable to finish in open play situations. Suwon tried to make the most of their few chances, but it wasn’t easy.
Six minutes of stoppage time were awarded and Jeonbuk’s breakaway attack continued. A powerful mid-range effort from Boateng was followed by another from Moon Sun-min, but he was denied by the defence.
Jeonbuk were left one man short in the second half when Hong Jeong-ho was sent off for accumulated cautions. However, the game ended shortly afterwards.
