Incheon’s upward trend is scary. First, based on league standards, they earned 20 points with 6 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss in the last 9 games. At the same time, they succeeded in narrowing the gap with the top ranked team, and are currently only 2 points behind 3rd place Gwangju FC (42 points). And if you include the FA Cup and Asian Champions League playoffs, they have 8 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss in the last 11 games. It’s definitely an amazing result.
Last week, I overcame a difficult situation well. Incheon played a league match against Gwangju FC on August 18th and then an Asian Champions League playoff match against Haiphong on the 22nd. Then, on the 25th, we went on a league trip to Suwon FC. In particular, they had a close game with Haiphong that went into overtime, and despite running out of stamina, they achieved a 2-1 win over Suwon FC.
Now, we will face Pohang ahead of the international break in September. Pohang is definitely not an easy team. As can be seen in the league rankings, they have gone undefeated with 3 wins and 4 draws in the last 7 games. Accordingly, they are stably maintaining second place and are working to narrow the gap with leader Ulsan Hyundai (61 points).
In terms of overall record, Pohang is ahead with 26 wins, 19 draws, and 16 losses in 61 games. The results of the last 10 games are similar, with Pohang recording 4 wins, 4 draws, and 2 losses. In the 29 games played at home in Incheon, Pohang also has the upper hand with 11 wins, 10 draws, and 8 losses. This season, they earned 3 points once with 1 win and 1 loss.
Incheon hopes to break the ‘6-year jinx’ in this game, which is likely to attract more than 10,000 spectators. Incheon’s last home win against Pohang was 2-0 in August 2017. Since then, they have recorded 3 draws and 4 losses. Now that the atmosphere is at its peak, we must wake up.
Incheon can move up to third place if it beats Pohang. To do so, we need a best-case scenario in which Gwangju, Jeonbuk Hyundai, and FC Seoul must be defeated side by side. Anyway, if you win, you can enjoy a sweet break with a high ranking.
Both teams have power leaks. Incheon’s Shin Jin-ho cannot play against Pohang due to accumulated warnings. Fortunately, however, Lee Myung-joo was able to fill the gap as the accumulated warnings were lifted. However, there are great concerns about Min Kyung-hyun’s position in the U-22 national team. In Pohang, Grant is expected to appear in the Incheon match after the yellow trouble ends, but Hong Yun-sang has left for the U-22 national team.
