The Busan I-Park and Jeonnam Dragons will face off in the 26th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Gudeok Stadium in Busan on March 15. Busan is in fourth place with 41 points, while Jeonnam is in seventh place with 34 points. Busan is in desperate need of points in a tight race for the top spot. Jeonnam is also in need of points to leap to the top.
Before the game, Busan head coach Park Jin-seop said, “We have prepared the same as always. I talked to the players about showing a better performance since it was a home game.”
Park started Dong-jin Park, who was acquired in the summer transfer market, for the fourth consecutive match. “It would be better if he scored,” Park said, “but he’s showing the juniors how passionate he is. He has changed the atmosphere of the team. It would be even better if he scored a goal.”
The team has a good winning percentage at Guduk Stadium this season. They have played three games and won two and drawn one. “It’s a different atmosphere from the Asiad,” Park said. We feel like we can interact more with the crowd and fans. We’ve had good results in the last three games, so we’re looking forward to today.”
“We have to survive the fierce competition at the top. Every game is worth six points. “It’s going to be stressful, but we’re going to enjoy it. I’m trusting the players,” Park said.
“The key to today’s game is defense. They have a good offense. If we can block their strikers well, I think we will have chances.”

Jeonnam head coach Lee Jang-hwan said, “We’re on a good run. We are facing top teams this month, including Bucheon. In a way, August is the most important month. It could decide our fate,” he emphasized.
The tighter the competition at the top, the better it is for the mid-table teams, as they can catch up when the gap hasn’t widened. “Actually, we had two chances (to move up) before that. Today is the third. We need to seize this opportunity and stay close to the top five.”
Veterans Kim Soo-beom, Choi Ji-hoon, and Lee Seok-hyun are anchoring the center. Lee said, “The biggest part is that Jo Ji-hoon is doing a good job in the middle. It shows in his positioning and other things. (Lee) Hoo-kwon will also be a good competition. We need to keep this momentum going.”
“They have a lot of fast players. We need to keep a clean sheet in the first half. Then the chances will definitely come,” he added.
Lee, who has been at Gudok Stadium for about 20 years, said, “I have good memories here. I’m excited. We will do our best to show our fans a good performance in front of them.”
