Ulsan Hyundai is going on an expedition to Pohang Steelers.
Ulsan will play the 32nd round and 177th East Coast derby of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against Pohang at Pohang Steel Yard at 2 p.m. on the 30th.
Ulsan is currently in the lead with 65 points, 20 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses, and faces second place Pohang (15 wins, 12 draws, 4 losses, 57 points).
It is a 6-point game that will be the turning point for Ulsan’s fourth star. The current score is 8 points. If Ulsan wins, they will open the gap to 11 points and have an advantage in winning the championship.
Recently, things are slowly finding their way. Ulsan recorded its first win in Asia on the 19th with a 3-1 win over BG Pathum United (Thailand) in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League group stage. On the 24th, they won 3-2 away to Suwon FC and broke away from a 3-game winless streak (2 draws, 1 loss) in the league.
It is important to continue the trend until this Pohang game. Expectations are high on Joo Min-gyu, who is currently the leading scorer with 15 goals. Recently, the fire has been rekindled. The goals of Daejeon and Suwon FC were split repeatedly. In the match against Suwon FC, he came on as a substitute for Martin Adam in the 25th minute of the second half and scored the winning goal. He scored a goal in both matches against Pohang this season. Joo Min-gyu loaded his guns to score three consecutive goals against Pohang.토토사이트
Adam, Joo Min-gyu’s partner and good competitor, is also in good form with a hat-trick against Pathum and one assist against Suwon FC. Joo Min-gyu and Adam, who are showing off their beastly instincts, are taking aim at the Pohang goal.
This is coach Hong Myung-bo’s tenth East Coast derby since taking over as Ulsan coach. They have the upper hand with 2 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses in the 2021 season, 1 win, 1 draw, and 2 losses in the 2022 season, and 1 win, 1 draw this season, and ‘4 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses out of 9 games.’ Now, they have shaken off the Pohang jinx by not collapsing at critical moments.
In particular, in the away game against Pohang on July 8, Joo Min-gyu scored the winning goal after receiving a pass from Seol Young-woo, securing a 1-0 victory. I have memories of planting a flag in enemy territory 656 days after a 2-1 victory on September 21, 2021. Ulsan is ready to return from the difficult trip to Pohang with back-to-back wins and singing ‘I’m fine~’ in unison once again.
