Jeonbuk Hyundai suffered a defeat away to Bangkok United (Thailand).

Jeonbuk fell 2-3 away to Bangkok in the second leg of their 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL) Group F match at Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani, Thailand on Thursday.

Jeonbuk, who defeated Kitchee (Hong Kong) 2-1 in the first leg, moved to 1-1-1 (3 points). Bangkok moved to the top of the group with two straight wins (6 points) following a 2-1 victory over Ryan City (Singapore).

After a 1-3 loss to Daegu FC in the 32nd round of the K League 1, Jeonbuk was on the verge of falling out of the Final Four. They traveled to Bangkok to try to turn things around before their final regular season match against FC Seoul.

However, Bangkok’s momentum was strong as they were unbeaten in their last seven matches (6 wins, 1 draw). Jeonbuk was considered to have the upper hand in terms of objective power, but they fell short.

Jeonbuk took the lead in the 19th minute through an own goal by Tosawat Limwanasatian off a cross from Han Gyo-won, but conceded the equalizer seven minutes later. Rungrath Pumchanchak split the Jeonbuk goal with a precise shot from the front of the penalty box.

In the second half, Jeonbuk was shaken by Bangkok’s offense. In the 13th minute of the second half, Bangkok won the ball after a mistake in the Jeonbuk defense and 스포츠토토 attempted a side cross. Ahn Hyun-beom tried to block the ball and conceded an own goal.

Jeonbuk tried to catch up but gave up a left-footed wedge to Inacio Willen Mota in the 37th minute.

In the 43rd minute of the second half, Moon Sun-min scored a right-footed comeback goal from a corner kick opportunity, but that was as close as they would get.
