Jeonbuk Motors vs Suwon Bluewings Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors Form & Team News


Jeonbuk Motors won their third-straight K League 1 title last season to continue their dominance in South Korea. However, it's not all rosey heading into the new season.

Jeonbuk Motors have seen their two top scorers leave the club, Ricardo Lopes and Shin-uk Kim both moving to the Chinese Super League. Central defender Ja-ryong Ku was signed from Suwon Bluewings and will be keen showcase their skillset.

They club have re-signed attacking midfielder Kim Bo-kyung after he won the K League 1 MVP award with Ulsan Hyundai. He recorded 13 goals and nine assists last season and is set to be a key player.

Promising 22-year-old central midfielder Takahiro Kunimoto was signed from Gyeongnam FC. 25-year-old winger Murilo has replaced Ricardo Lopes but it’s unclear if he can replicate the production of his fellow Brazilian.

Jeonbuk Motors have signed two strikers in the transfer window, Gue-sung Jo and Lars Veldwij. Jo made his competitive debut against Yokohama Marinos in the AFC Champions League and scored off the bench.

20-year-old attacking midfielder Se-jin Jeon was sent on loan to Sangju Sangmu. Bosnia-Herzegovina striker Sulejman Krpic was signed from FK Zeljeznicar Sarajevo and competes with Taggart and 19-year-old Hyun-gyu Oh for a spot up front.
