Petrescu “I don’t understand the goal cancellation…Jeonbuk should have won 2-1”

Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu was never satisfied with a draw.

Jeonbuk drew 1-1 with Suwon FC in the second round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at Suwon Sports Complex at 2 p.m. on Sept. 9. It was Jeonbuk’s second consecutive draw in the K League and their first win was delayed.

Jeonbuk made a number of changes to its best 11 due to the Asian Champions League. Jeonbuk lined up in a 4-4-2 with Vinicius and Park Jae-yong up top and Jeon Byeong-kwan, Boa Teng, Lee Young-jae, and Han Kyo-won in the middle. Jeong Woo-jae, Lee Jae-ik, Petrasek, and 카지노사이트 Choi Chul-soon were the back four, with Jeong Min-ki in goal.

There was a twist. In the 30th minute, Boateng raised his foot in an attempt to catch an aerial ball and was struck by Kang Sang-yoon. The referee ordered Boateng to be sent off directly. Jeonbuk played the rest of the match with 10 men.

Jeonbuk conceded the lead to Lee Seung-woo in the first minute of the second half, but Thiago equalized in the eighth minute of the second half. Jeonbuk pulled a goal back in the 40th minute through Lee Young-jae. However, the goal was overturned after video review.

After the game, Petrescu said: “The 10 men fought well. We didn’t start well in the first half, but we didn’t create many chances. The red card was the difference. In the second half, we played with 10 men and focused on counterattacking. I think we won 2-1. I don’t understand the goal disallowed. But that’s soccer. I’m happy that the players fought well,” he concluded.

Jeonbuk is winless in its first three matches of the season, drawing all three 1-1. “Of course, we would have liked to win, but we didn’t lose,” Petrescu said. It’s positive that we didn’t lose. We deserved to win today. That’s how football is. Jeonbuk is a team that needs to win every game, so it’s stressful when the results don’t go their way, but I’m happy with the way they played and the way they performed.”

Having rested a number of first-team players, Jeonbuk will be confident heading into the second leg of their Asian Champions League quarterfinal tie against Ulsan on Wednesday. The two teams drew 1-1 in the first leg in Jeonju on May 5.

“The starters who will play against Ulsan are training elsewhere,” Petrescu said. We have some injuries, but we are ready. We have experienced players. It’s an important game for everyone. I hope we can qualify. It’s a difficult game, but I’m confident of a good result.”
