They are now just eight points behind second-place Pohang. Ulsan’s dominance in July and August was short-lived, and second-placed Pohang came close. Head coach Hong Myung-bo said it was unfortunate that they lost points in July and August, so the outcome of the final round matchup is important.
Ulsan Hyundai and Gwangju FC will face off in the 29th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 on March 3 at 4:30 p.m. at the Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium. Currently, Ulsan leads the table with 61 points, while Gwangju is in fourth place with 42 points after a surge in promotion.메이저놀이터
Both teams are on the rise. Leaders Ulsan have one win and one draw in their last two games, while Gwangju are unbeaten in eight games (three wins and five draws) and are looking to make a run at the top of the table.
Gwangju’s momentum is strong. Despite being without a number of key players, including Asani He-ryul, Timo, and Uhm Ji-sung, head coach Lee Jung-hyo has promised to keep the Gwangju colors alive and play aggressive football against leaders Ulsan.
“I think Gwangju will have prepared well organizationally,” he said ahead of the match. Gwangju will definitely have pressure, but they are confident and have been producing results. Gwangju is a team with a good buildup, so we prepared organizationally because we might have trouble when we go on the offensive.”
Ulsan has been a dominant force this season. However, they have struggled in their last five games with two wins, two draws, and one loss, and dropping points in July and August has narrowed the gap between them and Pohang to eight points.
In response, coach Hong Myung-bo said, “I’m not worried about Pohang in second place, but rather that Ulsan lost points in July and August. There is also regret that we didn’t win the last match. But even last year, we ended up losing in the final round. We also have a direct match against Pohang, so it’s important to see how we do in the end.”
Hong continued, “We are also looking for a way to coexist with Martin Adam and In-Ju-gyu, but this time Adam will start first and In-Ju-gyu will come on as a substitute. When Adam is on, Lee Myung-jae’s crosses are important. Seol Young-woo has been playing for the Asian Games and the national team, so there is no problem with his fitness. Also, Kim Min-hyuk will play more up front and be active next to Martin. He did well in the last match,” he added.
