Two teams with hot offensive power are about to clash for the second time of the season.
On the 14th (Sun) at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium, Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 13, Ulsan Hyundai, the leader in the extreme, and FC Seoul, who are second in the terrifying rise, will face off. First of all, the home team, Ulsan, succeeded in a perfect revival by winning 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 games after their first defeat in the match against Daejeon Hana Citizen in the last 7 rounds. Ulsan is challenging for a second consecutive league victory by completing a solo system early by widening the gap with second place Seoul by 8 points.
While Ulsan’s terrifying upward trend continues, the away team Seoul, the opponent to counter this rising trend, is also in a tough mood. Seoul, which narrowly escaped the threat of relegation by finishing 9th last season, is showing a complete transformation this season. Freshmen such as Hwang Eui-jo, Im Sang-hyeop, and Willian are bursting out one after another and are emitting strong offensive power. Coach Ahn Ik-soo, unlike last season, showed perfect crisis response ability and leading the team, and after 12 rounds, he finished second with 7 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. This is the current situation in Seoul.
‘Ulsan Phobia’ Will Seoul kneel again this time?
Following Jeonbuk phobia, ‘Ulsan phobia’ hangs over Seoul every season. In the 36th round of the league held on October 28, 2017, Osmar Lee (Incheon) and Dejan (Kitche SC) defeated Ulsan 3-0 with consecutive goals. Since then, Seoul has suffered 2 draws and 14 losses in 16 league games against Ulsan, and has not been able to break the Ulsan draw jinx.
Also, the memory of winning at Munsu Stadium, the home of Ulsan, must be passed on to the very distant past. The memory of catching Ulsan 2-1 in the 7th round of the league on April 24, 2016 is the last memory of Ulsan away victory.
Seoul is a great opportunity to cut these bad links. In particular, the 3rd round of the league on March 12th, when they faced each other for the first time this season. Seoul, which has memories of collapsing due to an absurd mistake even after Na Sang-ho scored the first goal, will be an opportunity to narrow the gap with first place Ulsan and at the same time shake off the jinx.
Ulsan also continues to jinx against Seoul, and it is an opportunity to operate the league stably by increasing the number of points against second place Seoul. Before watching the match between Ulsan and Seoul, I am confident that if you know these interesting records, you will enjoy watching the game even more.
Firepower VS Firepower, who has the best spear?
The offensive power of the two teams this season is spitting fire. In particular, national team striker Na Sang-ho, who is recording the number one individual score, has sharp toes. Na Sang-ho, who has been dominating the league with fierce momentum by producing attack points in the last 4 consecutive games, has posted 8 goals and 2 assists in 12 league games, and is showing a rising form in all areas such as dribbling, passing and shooting.
Excluding Na Sang-ho, Hwang Eui-jo (2 goals), Palosevich, Park Dong-jin, and Im Sang-hyeop (3 goals) are recording decisive goals at every moment, exuding Seoul’s fierce offensive power.
Ulsan, which faces Seoul, the highest scoring team, is also showing formidable offensive power. The trustworthy man of Ulsan (23 points), who ranks second in team scoring after Seoul, is Joo Min-gyu, who ranks second in individual scoring after Na Sang-ho. Joo Min-gyu, who has scored 6 goals and 1 assist in 11 league games, has scored 3 goals in the last 5 games and is fiercely chasing top scorer Na Sang-ho.
In Ulsan, excluding Joo Min-gyu, various resources such as Rubikson (5 goals), Bako (3 goals), Eom Won-sang (2 goals), and Hwang Jae-hwan (2 goals), who ranked 4th in individual scoring, scored goals evenly, putting a burden on Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo. situation is alleviating.
In this head-to-head match, it will be a more interesting match if you focus on watching the match between Na Sang-ho and Joo Min-gyu, who are recording the most points, and which team will have stronger firepower. 토토사이트
In addition to these parts, we also need to pay attention to another story, such as the Ssangyong derby (Ki Sung-yong VS Lee Chung-yong), Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo’s Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo’s Museung jinx.
The chasing Seoul and the running away Ulsan met again in the 11th round following the last two rounds. If 1st place Ulsan wins the game against Seoul this time, it can widen the gap with 2nd place Seoul to 11 points and complete a perfect solo system. A win over Ulsan could reduce the gap to 5 points for second-placed Seoul and give them a chance to put pressure on top-ranked Ulsan.
In conclusion, both teams are in desperate need of a win. Who will be the winner of the firepower showdown between 1st place Ulsan and 2nd place Seoul, which will be held on the 14th (Sun) at 2:30 pm in Munsu, Ulsan?
