Both teams were in high spirits. This is because they captured the top teams in the previous 16 rounds.
Jeonbuk won 2-0 against Ulsan Hyundai in the ‘Hyundai Derby’. It was the 110th Hyundai Derby in total, and it took revenge for the defeat in the opening match of this season. Cho Kyu-seong scored the opening goal, and even Moon Seon-min fired a scorer and roared.
Ulsan recorded only 1 loss out of 15 games before Jeonbuk’s game, and was running at the top, but Jeonbuk properly destroyed the ‘popular’ Ulsan.
In particular, Jeonbuk was not the best team. It is all the more valuable because it is a first-team victory in a situation where key players such as Baek Seung-ho, Maeng Seong-woong, and Kim Moon-hwan have been injured. Coach Petrescu Cluj wants to continue the trend until the next Jeonbuk coach officially takes over.
Daegu is also not easy. Unlike the struggles at the beginning of the season, injured players are returning one after another and bringing vitality to the team. The command tower is accumulating points one by one with the ‘best power’ conceived from before the season.

Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon, ahead of the Jeonbuk game, said, “I gained confidence through the Seoul game. The atmosphere in Jeonbuk is good and there are good players, but we want to produce the best result by playing as many cards as we can.”
