Ulsan Hyundai will play its first match in Final A against Gwangju FC.
Ulsan will play the first match of the 34th round and Final A of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against 3rd place Gwangju at Gwangju Soccer Stadium at 2 pm on the 21st.
Ulsan, aiming to be at the top of the league for two consecutive seasons, advanced to Final A with 20 wins, 7 draws, and 6 losses (67 points) in 33 games. They are 9 points ahead of 2nd place Pohang Steelers (58 points) and have an advantageous position in winning the championship.
As Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo mentioned, ‘now the real competition’ begins.
Ulsan drew 0-0 in both the away games against Pohang Steelers on September 30th and the home games against Incheon United on October 8th, which were held just before the break. The defense, which had been somewhat shaken by recording no points in two consecutive games, has stabilized. On the other hand, although their offensive power has cooled down a bit compared to the early and mid-season, they still boast the strongest firepower in the league with 56 goals in 33 games. The number of team assists is also the highest at 35.
The complete system can now be operated. Eom Won-sang and Seol Young-woo, who were selected to the Korean men’s soccer team at the Hangzhou Asian Games, returned home with gold medals.
Eom Won-sang decorated the Asian stage with his advantage, speed. Seol Young-woo, who was a wild card, took center stage with stable defense and his eldest brother’s leadership. He contributed to Korea’s record of winning three consecutive gold medals in this tournament.
Seol Young-woo immediately joined the A national team and, along with Jeong Seung-hyun, started two consecutive games (Tunisia on the 13th and Vietnam on the 17th) and took charge of the defense. Kim Tae-hwan appeared as a substitute in both games. Hyun-Woo Cho (starter) and Young-Kwon Kim (substitute in the second half) took the field for the first time in the game against Vietnam.
The Taegeuk Warriors, who showed their presence in the national team, took a break after the Vietnam game and joined Ulsan to begin preparations for the Gwangju game.스포츠토토

However, they lost 0-2 in their most recent home game on September 3rd. The intention is to get revenge and come closer to winning the league in the first match in 49 days.
