Ulsan Hyundai vs Sangiu for the K-League 1 championship match on Wednesday at Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium.
Another K-League match this time with Ulsan Hyundai hosting Sangiu at their home stadium in a game where the hosts are favoured not only for their high quality and playing at home but also for the excellent phase they’ve been in recent times.
Ulsan has been having a great time going into this match in second place with the possibility of taking the lead if they win. Ahead of them will be Sangiu, who have already won 1-0 away this year.
The Ulsan team arrives big with 3 wins in the last 4 matches, and the rest was a draw on Jeonbuck’s ground which gives more value to the result considering the quality of the opponent. In the last round, Ulsan returned to victories beating Gangwon 2-1 this time in a game where they were losing but still managed to turn around and leave with three points.
At home, where Ulsan is most reliable at this time being the team with the best home record even with a game behind. Ulsan has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1, in the 10 home matches. In the last 6 games Ulsan has won 5 and only tied them against Daegu, a team that, although not having a great season, is always complicated.
Away from home things change a bit having only won 3 games, tied two and lost 5, scoring 8 goals and conceding 22. Important to notice that in the last 5 away matches Sangiu lost 4 having only won Incheon which is last in the championship.
This is another game entirely within reach of Ulsan that has made a great season so far. Given the recent results of the team mainly at home, and against a team like Sangiu, who is much weaker away from home, I believe in another victory of the home team.
