‘K League 1 Absolute Top 1 Shakes’ Ulsan Hyundai in the swamp of sluggishness

K-League 1 ‘defending champion’ Ulsan Hyundai is shaking.

Ulsan lost 0-2 to Gangwon FC in the Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 round 26 away game held at Gangneung Sports Complex in Gangwon on the afternoon of the 12th.

As a result, Ulsan lost to all the lowest-ranked teams in the league following the Suwon Samsung match in the 23rd round. 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 5 matches.

Ulsan, who had been on a five-game winning streak, lost 1-2 to Incheon United at home on the 11th of last month. In the subsequent expedition to Suwon, they lost 1-3. Ulsan, who suffered their first consecutive defeat after Hong Myung-bo took over, seemed to change the mood by beating Jeju United 2-1 at home in the 24th round.

However, in the 25th round of the Daegu FC expedition, it was only 0-0 and suffered defeat in the following Gangwon match. In the last two matches, Ulsan failed to score a goal.

Like a butterfly effect, after midfielder Park Yong-woo was removed, the team has 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses. Park Yong-woo moved to Al Ain, United Arab Emirates, after playing against the Pohang Steelers on the 8th of last month.

Ulsan (57 points) still has plenty of points. It is 11 points behind second place Pohang (46 points). However, if the sluggishness continues, we cannot guarantee a single lead.먹튀검증

The 27th round of the upcoming 19th is a game that could be a watershed for Ulsan. Ulsan will play the 3rd ‘Hyundai Derby’ this season against Jeonbuk at home. Ulsan won the first game, and Jeonbuk won the second game. For Ulsan, Hyundai is a chance to catch the derby and bujin at the same time.
