Former national team striker Lee Dong-guk, who has scored 10 goals this season, will lead Jeonbuk’s attack with Kim Dong-chan, this season’s fifth top scorer with eight goals. Pohang will try to extend its two-game winning streak with a strong midfield comprising Hwang Jin-sung, Kim Jae-sung and Shin Hyung-min.
