Is it possible for Jeju United to ‘rebound’ in September?
Jeju, led by coach Nam Ki-il, ended August with two consecutive losses. Suwon Samsung and Daegu FC both lost 0-1 in their two consecutive away matches. Jeju always experiences a “summer downtrend,” but this season is particularly long. Jeju has been sluggish with 1 win, 3 draws and 6 losses in the last 10 games. In particular, after running a steep upward trend with 4 wins and 1 draw during the month of May, it has been on a drastic decline since June. If you expand the range from June to August, it is 1 win, 4 draws and 8 losses in 13 games. The ranking is also standing at 9th place.
Jeju, which secured 34 points in 28 games, is two games behind Incheon United (40 points), the final line of the Final A (6th round). Of course, it’s not a big gap, but it doesn’t seem easy to catch up with Jeju’s current trend. The gap with Suwon FC (26 points), 10th in the relegation zone, is also 8 points.
Jeju will start its first game in September at home. We meet Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 3rd of next month. Jeju lost to Jeonbuk both times this season. He failed to score a goal in 2 matches and conceded 4 goals. However, Jeonbuk is also not doing well recently. Jeonbuk, which has launched a straight attack since Dan Petrescu took over, has no wins with 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 3 matches. During this period, the offensive power is so low that it cannot record a single multi-goal.
The best scenario is for Jeju to have a match A break after winning at home. Because the schedule after that is not easy. After the break, Jeju must face Incheon United (away), FC Seoul (home), and Gwangju FC (home) in turn. They play 2 matches at home, but all 3 teams are in the top tier. If they do not accumulate points in 4 games including the Jeonbuk match, they will inevitably fall behind in the mid-table competition.온라인카지노
Still, there are support groups. Veteran midfielder Koo Ja-cheol began team training in earnest. It’s not 100% yet, so it’s difficult to play in Jeonbuk, but it’s expected to return when the A match break is over. Choi Young-joon, who had to leave due to an unexpected injury before the opening match, is also accompanying the team after outside rehabilitation.
There are five games left before entering the final round. After being promoted in the last 2020 season, Jeju advanced to Final A in all two seasons. It ranked 4th in the 2021 season and 5th last season. In order for Jeju to succeed in entering Final A for three consecutive years, a reversal of the atmosphere in September and a rebound are essential.
