Jeonbuk, the leader of the K-League, came close to winning the championship for the fifth year in a row by defeating Daegu. Jeonbuk, two points ahead of second-placed Ulsan, was more likely to win the championship just by a draw in the last match.

Jeonbuk’s shield and captain Hong Jeong-ho, who led the team to the minimum number of runs this season, also showed off the sharp tip of the spear at the most important moment.
Hong Jeong-ho caught a corner kick from Kunimoto in the 2nd minute of the second half against Daegu 0-0, and shook the net with a right-footed turning shot.
After Hong Jeong-ho flew brilliantly, Moon Seon-min nailed it.
In the 41st minute, he beat the opposing defense in a counterattack situation and succeeded in a witty chip shot that was slightly over the goalkeeper’s height.
Jeonbuk, who won 2-0, took a two-point lead over second-placed Ulsan with one game left, raising hopes of winning for the fifth year in a row.
