Incheon United, which has recently gained momentum, calls Ulsan Hyundai into its home.

Incheon United and Ulsan Hyundai will face off on the 25th at 7:30 pm at the Incheon Soccer Stadium in the 9th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1.

The home team, Incheon, broke everyone’s expectations last season and finished the season in 4th place (54 points). A difficult season was expected, but it was overcome with the leadership of coach Cho Seong-hwan and the fighting spirit of the players. Despite the fact that the team’s main gun Stefan Mugosa left for Vissel Kobe during the season, he endured until the end of the season.

Incheon drew attention as a dark horse to break the Yanggang composition between Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk Hyundai ahead of the season opening. However, now that the 8th round has been played, the situation in Incheon is not easy. They lost 1-2 to Seoul in their opening game and drew 3-3 with Daejeon. Afterwards, they took a breather with a 1-0 victory in a head-to-head match against Jeju United, but on the 18th, they lost 0-5 to Gwangju, a promoted team.

After that, they failed to win (0-0 draw) in the home game against Daegu and lost 0-2 in the away game against Jeonbuk Hyundai. After winning 2-0 against Gangwon FC, they drew 2-2 against Suwon FC. Incheon succeeded in shaking off the downturned atmosphere, but desperately needed victory to realize its ambitions.

In this situation, Cheon Sung-hoon, who returned to the K-League stage this year after graduating from high school and worked for FC Augsburg in the German Bundesliga for three years, emerged as a promising player. Cheon Seong-hun, a youth player who has gone through Incheon U12, U15, and U18, is a 191cm tall striker and made his decent debut as a starter against Gangwon in the 7th round.

He also made an outstanding performance scoring multiple goals against Suwon FC in the previous 8th round. In particular, Chun Seong-hoon drew attention with the ceremony of running to the fans in the crowd after scoring that day, and through an interview, he revealed that it was a ceremony he had dreamed of from Germany, raising the expectations of Incheon fans.

Ulsan, who succeeded in winning the league last season, is in a state of turmoil. They won all 6 games they played right after the season started. Although they lost 1-2 against Daejeon Hana Citizen on the 16th and drew 2-2 with the Pohang Steelers in the East Coast Derby on the 22nd, they are at the top of the league and continue their momentum. 스포츠토토

Ulsan is showing off its formidable firepower with Joo Min-kyu scoring 4 goals and Rubikson scoring 5 goals in the league. In addition, Bako scored the first goal of the season in the last game, adding vitality to the powerful firepower of the 2023 season.

Ulsan is strong against Incheon. After winning 3-0 away on 14 April 2019, they are on a 12-match unbeaten run (7 wins, 5 draws). Even in the past record, 27 wins, 17 draws and 13 losses in 57 matches are superior.

You can’t be careless. Last season, after drawing 3 times in a row in 4 matches, I had a pretty hard experience winning 1 win at the end. Coach Hong Myung-bo always emphasized the goal of ‘to give joy and victory to the fans with our own soccer, no matter who the opponent is’. Ulsan is ready to shake the waters off Incheon as one team.
