Jeonbuk beats Incheon 2-0 for 9th straight win

Professional soccer K League 1 (1st Division) club Jeonbuk Hyundai rode a debut goal from striker Park Jae-yong, who was signed as a replacement for Jo Kyu-sung (Meatwillan) who left for Europe, to a ninth straight win at home and moved into third place.

Jeonbuk won the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 against Incheon United 2-0 on Saturday at Jeonju World Cup Stadium with relay goals from Park Jae-yong and Han Gyo-won.

The victory extended Jeonbuk’s winning streak to nine games at home, including the K League and the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup.

Jeonbuk recorded its 12th win (W4 D9 L40) and moved into third place, ahead of FC Seoul (W38).

Incheon pushed for the win, utilizing summer transfer signing Mugosa for the entirety of the match, but it wasn’t enough.

In the 14th minute, under heavy raindrops, new signing Park Jae-yong broke the deadlock. Luck was on their side.

A shot from Han Gyo-won in the Incheon penalty box was slowed down by the rain and headed towards Park Jae-yong, who smashed it home with his right foot to open the scoring for Incheon.

Park Jae-yong scored his first official goal in a Jeonbuk jersey, performing a sliding ceremony. He made an appearance in a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Busan Asiad Stadium on March 3, but this was his first official match.

Park is considered a possible replacement for Cho Kyu-sung, who left for Danish side Midtjylland. He joined Jeonbuk from FC Anyang in the K League 2 (2nd Division).

After taking a 1-0 lead, Jeonbuk set the tone with a goal from Han Gyo-won in the 44th minute.

Down 0-2 at halftime, Incheon fought back furiously in the second half, but couldn’t break through Jeonbuk’s solid and experienced defense.

Meanwhile, Gangwon FC and Jeju United played to a 1-1 draw. 먹튀검증
