Jeju United at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors
2 p.m. Saturday, Jeonju World Cup Stadium
No.1 Jeonbuk is looking to make history. The defending champion has not lost its last 21 matches in the league, staying with 16 wins and five draws, tying the record held by Busan I’Park in 1991 and Jeonnam Dragons in 1997. If Jeonbuk wins or draws, it will set a new unbeaten record.
It’s certainly possible - Jeju hasn’t won a single game away this season, while Jeonbuk hasn’t lost at home in its last 10 games.
Jeju, which won its last two games in the league, allowed only three goals in six games, the lowest among any other team, while Jeonbuk has scored 10, tying with Ulsan Hyundai and Gwangju FC for most goals.
Jeonbuk also has the league’s leading scorer Eduardo Goncalves de Oliveira, who has four goals in the last six matches.
