Ulsan Hyundai, the ‘defending champion’, sets out to break the last jinx.
Ulsan will play an away match against Suwon Samsung and Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 14 at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 6:00 pm on the 21st.
After the appointment of manager Hong Myung-bo, Ulsan broke the jinx one by one. Two years after his appointment, he defeated rival Jeonbuk Hyundai and became the K-League 1 champion. On the 22nd of last month, the difficult Pohang Steelers and the East Coast Derby also ended in a 2-2 draw. The Daegu FC away draw jinx was also broken with the result of 3-0 on the 5th.
All that remains is a draw away from Suwon. At home, Ulsan is strong. 4 wins and 1 draw at home in 3 years. In the first match of this season on March 19th, they also won 2-1. But on the expedition it gets smaller. Ulsan is a draw in 3 games with 1 draw and 1 loss in the 2021 season and 1 loss in the 2022 season in the Suwon expedition.
Regarding the Suwon away jinx, coach Hong smiled, saying, “When should I wake up?” He said, “Every game has a story about the opposing team, and we have a story. The most important thing is how to prepare for the game and solve it in our own style.” At the same time, he emphasized, “Everything came together and broke the jinx. Ulsan’s external appearance is no longer there.”메이저사이트
