We succeeded in changing the atmosphere. Rubikson, a Swedish foreigner who had been silent, even scored a goal. Can Ulsan Hyundai secure their second consecutive victory in K League 1 in the second game of the final round?
Ulsan, led by coach Hong Myung-bo, will face Daegu FC in the 35th round of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’, which kicks off at Ulsan Munsu Stadium at 2 pm on the 29th.
This game is attracting a lot of attention as Ulsan can secure an early victory. Ulsan, with 20 wins, 7 draws, and 7 losses (67 points), is solidifying its lead by 8 points ahead of second-place Pohang Steelers (59 points).
Recently, the league faltered with no points and no wins (2 draws and 1 loss) in 3 consecutive league games, but Pohang also failed to narrow the gap as it only drew 4 games in a row (3 draws and 1 loss).
Pohang will play the 35th round against Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 28th, a day earlier. If Pohang loses and Ulsan wins against Daegu, the point difference between the two teams increases to 11. Then, Ulsan is confirmed to win its second consecutive league title regardless of the results of rounds 36 to 38.
Ulsan, which lifted the K-League championship trophy for the first time in 17 years last year, showed off frightening momentum in the first half of the year and ran an unrivaled race for the lead. Then, in the 10 games played since August, they faltered with 2 wins, 5 draws, and 3 losses. The opponent’s strategic net defense played a role, but the team’s conditioning deteriorated due to negative internal issues.
Director Hong is a leader who pays great attention to risk management. He struggled to rebuild his internal cohesion during his last international break. He also created a place for players to escape from sexual stress and ‘heal’ by holding barbecue parties at the training ground.
On the 24th, a complete victory (3-1 win) in the Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL) group stage match against Johor Darul Takzim (Malaysia) became a stepping stone for a turnaround in the atmosphere. In particular, in this game, not only Coach Hong but also the players among the outsiders who wanted to ‘survive’ played their part. Defensive midfielder Boyanic, who had little opportunity to play, helped Seung-Hyun Jeong’s header to open the scoring, and Rubiksson scored multiple goals to lead the team to victory.짱구카지노 주소
Recently, Ulsan had a good game, but suffered because no goals were scored. K League 1 scoring leader Joo Min-gyu (15 goals) has not scored a goal for a month since the Suwon FC match on the 24th of last month due to the opponent’s intensive control. ‘Hungarian Tank’ Martin Adam was also unable to concentrate on the game as he was traveling back and forth to his home country due to his wife’s recent birth. At times like this, there were voices hoping that Rubiksson, who had scored a ton of goals early this season, would add to the scoring, but he tasted a goal for the first time in five months on the ACL stage. Thanks to this, main strikers such as Joo Min-gyu, Adam, and Bako had a pleasant rest. They are expected to mobilize in full force for the Daegu match.
Ulsan is ahead of Daegu this season with 2 wins and 1 draw. It remains to be seen whether they can catch two birds with one stone: victory and early victory.
