‘4th overall win’ and ‘first ever 2nd consecutive loss’. Ulsan Hyundai takes on a new challenge in history. The opponent is Daegu FC, which was strangely weak in the tiger’s den.
Ulsan and Daegu will face off in the 35th round (Final A 2nd round) of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Munsu World Cup Stadium in Ulsan at 2 p.m. on the 29th. Ulsan is in 1st place with 67 points (20 wins, 7 draws, 7 losses, 56 points), and Daegu is in 6th place with 49 points (12 wins, 13 draws, 9 losses, 39 points).
The league is nearing its end. Ulsan is on the verge of ascending to the throne this season, following last season. The gap between leader Ulsan and second place Pohang Steelers (60 points) is 7 points. If Ulsan wins today, the difference in points will be 10 points, and the championship will be confirmed early regardless of the results of the remaining season.
There is no reason to delay. The goal is unconditional victory. Recently, Ulsan has been slightly shaken by competing in the league and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL). The results of the previous 10 games were 3 wins, 4 draws, and 3 losses. After winning early against Daegu, we need to start the rotation and prepare for ACL damage.
‘K-League 2nd consecutive loss! Ulsan entered the final round with the slogan ‘The first road, the road we travel together’. Coach Hong Myung-bo said, “It’s hard to see because it’s a road no one has walked before. We’ll do our best until the end. Every game is really important. But it’s more important for Ulsan to add a star to the left chest. (Besides winning the championship) It’s more important.” “I have no goal,” he said, expressing his determination. Ulsan prepares to win a championship that will remain in the club’s history.
Daegu achieved its goal of returning to Final A. It is certainly encouraging considering that they faced the risk of a relegation play-off last season. Motivation may be low, but it is too early to give up. As there is still a possibility of advancing to the ACL next season, we will pull the reins until the end.
We must escape from the jinx. In the meantime, Daegu flinched every time they faced Ulsan. In total, they are inferior with 8 wins, 15 draws, and 31 losses in 54 league games. This trend has become more serious since coach Hong Myung-bo took office in Ulsan. From 2021 to 2023, they have lost 5 consecutive away games to Ulsan.카지노사이트
Daegu dreams of the ACL, shouting, ‘Dreaming of the winter we will create.’ Coach Choi Won-kwon expressed his determination, saying, “This is a cheering song created by the fans when we first entered the ACL. It is an honor to be able to reach Final A. It is thanks to the fans. Since we have come this far, we will compete until the end and make sure to get the international flight that the fans want.” lost. Daegu is making an all-out effort to reap the beauty of Yujong.
