Ulsan wins early even before the ‘East Coast Derby’?… It depends on Jeonbuk

Pro Football K-League 1 Round 35
Ulsan clashes with Daegu FC on the 29th Jeonbuk
faces Pohang at home on the 28th
If Jeonbuk and Ulsan each win
, Ulsan will win regardless of the remaining games

Ulsan Hyundai (67 points), the leader in professional soccer K-League 1, will challenge for the league title this weekend. If Ulsan defeats Daegu FC (6th place, 49 points) and Jeonbuk Hyundai (4th place, 52 points) defeats Pohang Steelers (2nd place, 59 points), they will win the championship for the second consecutive year regardless of the results of the remaining three games. You can.

Ulsan will play a home game against Daegu in the 35th round of K League 1 2023 at Ulsan Munsu Stadium at 2 p.m. on the 29th.

Ulsan is ahead of Daegu with 2 wins and 1 draw, so they plan to kill two birds with one stone by winning at home and winning early.

Ulsan has recently shown signs of stagnation with a scoreless draw (2 draws, 1 loss) in 3 consecutive league games, but thanks to their overwhelming performance in the first half of the season and accumulating enough points, they are the closest to winning the championship. Ulsan won the title early by defeating Gangwon FC in the 37th round last season.

Pohang shows strong performance with 3 wins out of 3 against Jeonbuk,
defeats Jeonbuk and plans to win the ‘East Coast Derby’
Attention is drawn to the performance of ‘veteran super sub’ Kim In-seong

Pohang, who is chasing Ulsan, will clash with Jeonbuk at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 2 p.m. on the 28th.

If Pohang does not win 3 points against Jeonbuk, which has been in a slump this season but has recently turned on the rise, chasing down first place may become difficult.짱구카지노 주소

If Pohang draws with Jeonbuk and Ulsan beats Daegu, the point gap will widen to 10, and even if Pohang wins all three remaining games, it will not be able to surpass Ulsan.

Pohang plans to win against Jeonbuk away and then compete in the ‘East Coast Derby’ against Ulsan to be held at Ulsan’s home stadium on the 12th of next month.

In fact, whether this game with ‘6 points’ at stake will be the biggest ‘big match’ of the season ultimately depends on the result of the Jeonbuk match.

Pohang met Jeonbuk three times this season and won all of them. After coming from behind to win 2-1 in the 5th round away game last April, they won 1-0 and 2-1 at home in May (round 15) and July (round 24), respectively.

On the 24th, Pohang defeated last year’s ‘ACL champion’ Urawa Reds (Japan) 2-0 away in the third match of the 2023-24 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) group stage.

Pohang is the only K-League team in the ACL to have won three games in a row and is on a winning streak.

In particular, with key wingers such as Baek Sung-dong and Wandelsson missing due to injury, veteran Kim In-seong is playing the role of ‘super sub’.

The Korea Professional Football League also selected Kim In-seong as a player to watch in the 35th round. The federation highly evaluated Kim In-seong, saying, “Even at the age of 34, he is frequently creating flashy opportunities in every game with his tireless stamina and speed.”
