‘Post Cho Kyu-sung’ Park Jae-yong to score back-to-back goals against desperate Suwon

After scoring on his K League One debut, all eyes will be on Jeonbuk Hyundai to see if Park Jae-yong can once again prove his ‘post-Jo Kyu-sung’ credentials against Suwon Samseong, who have escaped from the bottom of the table.카지노

Jeonbuk will take on Suwon in the 26th round of the K League One at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on 12 December at 7pm. A win would give Jeonbuk the league’s longest home winning streak of eight games for the third time, after 2016 and 2018.

Once again, Park Jae-yong will be up front for Suwon. Jeonbuk signed Park Jae-yong, the ‘second Cho Kyu-sung’, from K League 2 side FC Anyang on 20 March to fill the void left by Cho’s departure to Danish side Mittwillan. The two players, both former Anyang youth players, share the same traits of being solidly physical, post-playing and goal-scoring strikers.

The impact was immediate. After playing 45 minutes in the third leg of the Coupang Play Series against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on 3 March, Park and his teammates combined to score the opening goal in the 15th minute of their league debut against Incheon United on 6 March. It was an impressive display of concentration in the torrential downpour, as he collected a deflected Han Kyo-won shot at his feet and slotted it into the corner of the net. Jeonbuk held on for a 2-0 win over Incheon to move up to third place.

However, Suwon, which has climbed out of the bottom of the table with two wins and three draws in five games in July, is not without momentum. Their unbeaten run was halted by a 0-2 defeat to Suwon FC on 5 July, but Mulicic and Kim Joo-chan have been on fire with back-to-back goals, while summer signing Kazuki has been a threat in midfield with his wide-ranging vision and passing ability.

Suwon also need a win to stay out of the relegation zone. Their loss last time out left them five points adrift of 10th-placed Suwon FC and 13 points behind ninth-placed Jeju. However, there is still room for Jeju to catch up as they are in a terrible run of form with four draws and six defeats in their last 10 games.

Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu is pinning his hopes on Park Jae-yong’s goal-scoring ability. “He is strong in post-play and delivery,” he said after the match against Incheon on 6 June, “I hoped he would be lucky to score a goal on his debut, but I’m glad it happened.”

“I’m happy to get a win and a goal in my first game, but I’ve only played one game and I’ve only been training with Jeonbuk for a short time,” said Park, who responded to his debut goal. “My teammates are very good, so if I can do a little better, I can help the team.”
