Summer again. Jeju United slows down.
Jeju was hotter than any team in May. 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 league games, sweeping 13 points. enjoyed a steep rise. Not only did he escape the ups and downs at the beginning of the season, but he also jumped into the competition for second place. However, it was shaken in June, but it did not add a win even in July.
Jeju recorded 2 draws and 2 losses in 4 matches played in June. Although they defeated Ulsan Hyundai in the quarterfinals of the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup, it did not lead to a turnaround. During this period, they conceded 10 goals and conceded more than 2 goals per game. In the 18th round against Ulsan, he gave up 5 goals, and in the 16th round against Gangwon FC (2-2 draw) and the 19th round against Daejeon Hana Citizen (1-1 draw), he failed to keep the lead and ended in a draw.
Even in July, Jeju lost 0-2 to Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 20th round and 1-2 to Daegu FC in the 21st round. In particular, the match against Daegu was even more painful as they scored the first goal at home and conceded two goals.토토사이트 순위
Jeju tends to decline in summer. In the hot summer, it is not easy to digest the schedule of going back and forth between home and away by plane and bus due to the unique location of Jeju. It is also a time when we need to focus more on the stamina and recovery of the athletes. As the heat and rainy season began early this year, the physical burden has already begun.
In the summer of 2021, Jeju went through a 12-game winless period (7 draws and 5 losses). It was not until mid-August that the monk monks who started in May were able to break the link. Considering that Jeju finished the season in 4th place through the spurt in the second half of 2021, a 12-game draw is a shame. Last year, from June to August, Jeju recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, with a win rate of less than 50%. Jeju’s overall win rate for the season was less than 50%.
Jeju ranked third in both 2021 and 2022 annual salary expenditures. It is one of the clubs that are not stingy in investment following Ulsan and Jeonbuk Hyundai. In order to win a ticket to the Asian Champions League (ACL), the team must overcome the summer decline. Jeju has three games left in July, and has to play five games in August, including the semifinals of the FA Cup. Summer is just beginning.
