Currently, Ulsan, who played 14 games, is at the top of the league with 12 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss with 37 points. Although they are 13 points ahead of FC Seoul, Jeju United, and Pohang Steelers (above 24 points), which are in second place, the goal is to stay vigilant and continue a good flow.
Ulsan looked forward to Daejeon. They lost 1-2 on the road on 16 April. If they had won the Daejeon expedition, they could have written K-League history by climbing to the top of 7 consecutive wins, the most since the opening of the K-League, but unfortunately, they recorded their first loss of the season. This is Ulsan’s only defeat this season. Ulsan is determined to take revenge in the confrontation with Daejeon after 43 days. Therefore, the Gwangyang expedition, which came back after winning, was a game that had benefits as well as the loss of an overtime match. On the 24th, Ulsan won a 2-1 victory against the Jeonnam Dragons in the FA Cup 4th round (round of 16) after an extended match and succeeded in advancing to the 5th round (quarterfinals). With 6 consecutive victories in the league and 7 official victories in the FA Cup, they are demonstrating the power of the K-League defending champion. On this day, Ulsan focused on checking the performance of players who had less time to play and improving their condition. Yoon Il-rok, Boyanich, Ataru, Kim Seong-jun, Lim Jong-eun, Jung Seung-hyeon, and Kim Tae-hwan stepped on the ground after a long time.
Ulsan conceded the first goal to Jeonnam in the 18th minute of the second half, but after that, they showed a high degree of concentration and Lim Jong-eun scored an equalizer in the second half of the extra time. In the first minute of the first half of extra time, Bakko’s cross was lightly finished by Martin Adam to secure a come-from-behind victory. Adam proved that he is in good condition by scoring in the last 3 official games in a row, including 2 league games.
Lee Cheong-yong, Kim Young-kwon, Lee Kyu-seong, Park Yong-woo, and Lee Myung-jae did not accompany the FA Cup expedition and took a break. Um Won-sang was put on the waiting list, but did not appear. Kim Min-hyeok, Joo Min-gyu, Bako, and Seol Young-woo were substituted for a short time. The partial rotation that was operated for this match and the first match was a success. After the Jeonnam match, coach Hong Myung-bo said, “I don’t think there will be much trouble with the upcoming match and game” despite the 120-minute extra bloody fight.
Attention is focusing on whether Ulsan will be able to put an end to its revenge play against Daejeon.
