Jeonbuk Hyundai meets Gwangju FC in four days. Jeonbuk Hyundai’s new head coach Dan Petrescu will be looking for his first win 안전놀이터.

Jeonbuk will face Gwangju in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Hana OneQ FA Cup on Nov. 28 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. It’s a must-win gateway to the quarterfinals.

Petrescu, who is adjusting to life with Jeonbuk after the June A-Match break, had a bitter taste of defeat against Gwangju in his K League debut. They suffered a 0-2 defeat on June 24. It was not only a result, but also a defeat in terms of content. The team lost 46.8% of the ball possession in 90 minutes. They were also outshot 7 to 14. It wasn’t a case of Gwangju playing a costly counterattack tactic, but rather a head-to-head clash, with Jeonbuk completely losing the battle for possession.

Petrescu tried to play Gustavo and Hapa Silva up top, but it had little effect. Lee Jung-hyo studied Petrescu’s tactics when he was coaching Cluj, and had about two weeks to come up with a countermeasure that utilized a two-topped long ball. The plan worked, and Petrescu’s debut ended in a crushing defeat.

Now comes the chance for a real first win. Gwangju is a team that is more focused on the K League 1 than the FA Cup. The team is not looking to make an immediate impact in the FA Cup and will be rotating extensively for this game. Lee plans to leave out almost all of his first-team players and use his best 11 with non-first-team players who need to prove themselves. The FA Cup is essentially a testing ground for players who haven’t been given much of a chance to shine. The goal is not to win, but to find resources that can be utilized in the K League 1 through the process.

With Gwangju fading, Jeonbuk must win the return match. Moreover, this will be Petrescu’s first game at home. A second straight loss to the same team will only make the air feel heavier as Jeonbuk looks to rebound with a new vibe. Even if Gwangju is an up-and-coming team, there is a huge difference in power and environment compared to Jeonbuk. They need a win to keep their pride intact.

The FA Cup is the only trophy Jeonbuk can realistically hope to win this season. With the competition in the K League 1 virtually out of the question, they need to take advantage of the short-term FA Cup to win the title. A first win would make the transition a little easier for Petrescu.

Petrescu needs time to adjust to the K League. He needs to get to know his players and understand the environment of the K League 1. That doesn’t mean he can ignore the results.

“We won’t repeat our mistakes and we will correct what went wrong,” Petrescu said, adding, “As it is our first home game, we will give our fans a victory 메이저사이트추천.”

Meanwhile, the FA Cup quarterfinals pit Ulsan Hyundai against Jeju United and Incheon United against Suwon Samsung. Pohang Steelers and Gangwon FC will also meet for a spot in the last four.
