“After 10 years, no disaster – ACLE participation is also imminent.”

Jeonbuk Hyundai had a 1-1 draw against Incheon United in the 36th round of Hana One-Q K League 1 2023 at Incheon Football Stadium at 2 p.m. on the 12th.

Jeonbuk failed to gain the upper hand against Incheon. He swallowed his disappointment by allowing threatening scenes all the time.

Jeonbuk struggled to score, but failed to show any significant performance due to the lack of detail in its tactics.

Jeonbuk’s poor performance led to the dedication of the first goal. In the 15th minute of the second half, Kim Do-hyuk allowed a goal and gave up the lead.

Jeonbuk pulled the reins to turn the tables after Park Jae-yong scored an equalizer with his head seven minutes later, but there was no income.

Jeonbuk desperately needed to win against Incheon. This is because Gwangju FC, the third-ranked team, had a draw with Daegu FC in the previous day’s match, and only acquired one point, opening the way for pursuit.

Jeonbuk had a golden opportunity to chase third-place Gwangju by two points by winning three points after successfully hunting Incheon, but failed to save it.

In other words, he kicked the opportunity himself by turning over the table prepared by Daegu.

There is a reason why Jeonbuk is hanging its neck in third place. This is because they will be given the right to play in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League Elite (ACLE) next season.

If Jeonbuk maintains fourth place, it can participate in ACL2 and play on the Asian stage, but since it is a sub-competition of ACLE, the meaning of its parent company Hyundai Motor’s full support will fade.

Jeonbuk failed to recover the trophy it lost as it fell behind in the competition to win the K League 1 early this season.

Jeonbuk, which swallowed its regret, hoped to continue its great career of winning trophies for the 10th consecutive year through the FA Cup victory, but even this fell through as it was caught by the Pohang Steelers.

Jeonbuk had a no-holds-barred disaster for the first time in the first time in 10 years. Winning the ACLE berth for the next season is also a reasonable situation.
