Jeonbuk Hyundai

The Jeonbuk, which won 2-0 in the first game held at home with goals from Hernández and Hyun-beom Ahn, advanced 3-1 in total in the first and second games and secured a ticket to the quarterfinals.

Jeonbuk will compete against the winner of the round of 16 match between Ulsan HD and Banfore Kofu (Japan) to advance to the semifinals in a home and away match next month.

The first leg of the round of 16 between Ulsan and Gohu ended with Ulsan winning 3-0, and the second leg will be played in Tokyo on the 21st.

If Ulsan advances to the quarterfinals, the ‘Hyundai-Ga derby‘ between the two major K-League teams will take place.

Jeonbuk avenged its loss to Pohang in last year’s FA Cup final in the first match of the new year.

Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu, who performed poorly last season in his first year in the K-League, predicted ‘recovery of honor’ by winning the first matchup of the new year.

Pohang Steelers

Coach Tae-ha Park, who took charge of Pohang ahead of this season, swallowed his disappointment after being completely defeated in his first ACL challenge.

In the 12th minute of the first half, Pohang hit Jeonbuk’s net with Chan-Yong Park’s right-footed mid-range shot from about 30 meters away.

Jeonbuk goalkeeper Kim Jeong-hoon read the direction, took position, and stretched out his hand,

but the shot grazed his hand and headed toward the goal, perhaps because of the rain.

Pohang took the lead in possession, but it was Jeonbuk who scored the next goal.

Tall center back Jeong Tae-wook, who replaced Lee Soo-bin in the 24th minute of the second half,

scored the equalizing goal in 7 minutes.

In the 31st minute of the second half, Jeong Tae-wook ran toward Thiago’s header pass from the right and finished it with his head to score.

Pohang goalkeeper Hwang In-jae extended his hand, but Jeong Tae-wook’s head, who jumped, was higher.
