If 2nd place Pohang fails to win and beats Daegu,
it will be a guaranteed win and the first 2 consecutive losses since last season.
Will Ulsan be able to secure victory in the 35th round of professional soccer K-League 1 held this weekend?
Ulsan, led by coach Hong Myung-bo (54, photo), has 67 points (20 wins, 7 draws, 7 losses) as of the 27th, 8 points ahead of second place Pohang (59 points, 15 wins, 14 draws, 7 losses). If Pohang loses or draws against Jeonbuk on the 28th and Ulsan defeats Daegu on the 29th, Ulsan can lift the championship trophy regardless of the results of the remaining three games. This is why fans are paying attention to these two games this weekend.
There are many variables. Pohang, which still has a chance of winning, and fourth-place Jeonbuk (52 points), which is aiming for third place to qualify for next year’s Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, are both in a position where they can never retreat. Pohang recorded three wins against Jeonbuk this season, but their pace has fallen with one win, three draws, and one loss in the last five league games. Jeonbuk, which is chasing third place Gwangju (57 points), is on the rise with two consecutive wins recently. For Jeonbuk, who have always competed for the championship, if they win today, it will be like putting a damper on Ulsan’s victory, but they are determined to accumulate points.
Even if Jeonbuk wins or draws against Pohang, it cannot be guaranteed that Ulsan will defeat Daegu. This is because Ulsan has the upper hand with 2 wins and 1 draw in the 3 meetings this season, but Ulsan has been stagnant with no goals and no wins (2 draws, 1 loss) in the last 3 games.토스카지노 도메인
If Ulsan wins, it will be the first team to win two games in a row for the first time since its founding, following its victory at the top of K League 1 for the first time in 17 years last year. Ulsan will attempt to set another record in today’s game against Daegu at Ulsan Munsu Stadium. Since counting paid spectators in 2018, it is the first non-metropolitan club to exceed 300,000 spectators in a season. As of the 27th, Ulsan (281,473 people) is attracting the second largest number of spectators this season, following Seoul (394,022 people).
