Daegu FC vs Jeonbuk Motors (By: PlayMaker)
In the season 2018, Jeonbuk was crowned champion. This is the 6th time that "Green Warriors" dominate Korea's top-tier tournament within the last 10 years. Entering this 2019 season, they had a change on the training bench so it took times for their player to understand a new spirit of play. Morais was an assistant to Jose Mourinho so he was somewhat affected by "Special One". Jeonbuk under Morais often played firmly as a guest.
Jeonbuk just returned to the top race. Before entering the 20th round, Jose Morais team were at the top of the table with a record of 41 points after 19 matches. Just a few days after rising to the top in the Korean league, Jeonbuk Motors was immediately reclaimed by Ulsan after defeating Gyeongnam 3-1. Therefore, the trip to Daegu's yard this afternoon will expect a lot of pressure for them.
This is obviously a battle not too different even though Jeonbuk Motors is the defending champion of the tournament. Accordingly, Daegu only lost exactly one of the home game this season and vice versa, Jeonbuk Motors only had one defeatafter 9 times away from home.
Daegu often found themselves on the bottom half at the end of season, so the current place surely satisfy them. There are no reason to push hard in this game. Beside Ulsan Hyundai, Daegu is one of the two names with the best K-League defense until now with only 14 goals conceded after 19 rounds. This adds to the decline in Jeonbuk Motors' away form with only 2 wins in 5 times away from home. Therefore, the next match is likely to a very tight game.
