The K-League clubs that are competing in the FA Cup and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League 온라인카지노(ACL) this season are Pohang Steelers, Jeonbuk Hyundai, and Incheon United. Their future schedule will consist of the 3rd round of the ACL group stage, the 35th round of the K League 1, and the FA Cup semifinals, and this period is expected to determine the success or failure of this season.
This season’s K-League 1 first- and second-place teams and FA Cup winners will head to the ACL Elite (ACLE) for the 2024-2025 season. 3rd place in K League 1 receives ACL 2 tickets in the following grades. If the team within the top 3 of K League 1 wins the FA Cup, the 4th place team will advance to ACL2.
Currently, 3rd place Gwangju FC (57 points), 2nd place Pohang (59 points), which is being chased by 2 points, 4th place Jeonbuk (57 points) and 6th place Incheon (points), which are aiming for an ACL ticket for the 2024-2025 season in the league and FA Cup until the end. Victory points 49) Everyone is desperate for victory in the upcoming ‘Three Matches of Death’.
Pohang is preparing for three consecutive away games against Urawa Reds (Japan, 24th) – Jeonbuk (28th) – Jeju United (1st of next month). They are ranked first in Group J of the 2023-2024 ACL group stage (6 points, 2 wins), but there are many concerns about depth due to many injuries. If we do not pass this period well, there is a high possibility that this season will end in failure, so we must achieve results.
Jeonbuk-do will meet Lion City (Singapore, 25th) ~ Pohang (28th) ~ Incheon (1st of next month). Even though it is a three-game series at home, there are quite a few anxiety factors. In the ACL, they are only in second place in Group F (3 points, 1 win, 1 loss), and have lost 3 games this season, even against Pohang. I am very worried because I cannot be optimistic about ACL participation in the 2024-2025 season.
Incheon will play a three-game series against Shandong Taishan (China, 25th)~Gwangju (28th)~Jeonbuk (1st). Although they are in first place in ACL Group G (6 points, 2 wins), they are under a lot of pressure in the league and FA Cup. Also, they were inferior to Gwangju and Jeonbuk, with 2 draws and 1 loss and 1 draw and 2 losses respectively this season. To advance to the ACL for two consecutive seasons, they must overcome Gwangju and Jeonbuk.
