Ulsan Hyundai and Pohang Steelers, traditional K-League rivals, will play the East Coast Derby. The 2nd East Coast Derby of the season between Pohang and Ulsan will be held on the 8th at 6pm at Pohang Steel Yard.
Ulsan (50 points) is in first place and Pohang (37 points) is in second place.
Pohang, the home team, won consecutively by beating Suwon FC 3-1 in the 20th round. Pohang was named the best match and best team in the 20th round with the victory that day, and Oberdan, who played an active role in both offense and defense, even won the best player in the 20th round.
Pohang achieved a multi-score victory while Koh Young-jun (6 goals), who is recording the most points in the team, and Baek Seong-dong (7 assists), who is recording the most assists, are missing due to injuries. Pohang, which is undefeated in 4 matches in a row (2 wins, 2 draws) in the East Coast Derby, is aiming for victory in this match as well.
The visiting team, Ulsan, has been monopolizing the top spot throughout this season. Ulsan beat Gwangju 1-0 in the previous 20th round to record 4 consecutive victories and reached 50 points. This is the same record as the most points in the 20th round recorded by Jeonbuk in 2018.
This season, Ulsan is showing off its firepower with an average of 2.2 goals per game. Joo Min-gyu and Bakko are tied for the top scorer with 10 goals. Rubiksson, who scored 6 goals, is also ranked 7th in scoring.
Ulsan is challenging to win against the former club with the championship this season. The only teams that Ulsan has yet to win are Pohang and Daejeon.
On the afternoon of the 8th at Jeonju World Cup Stadium, a match between 3rd and 4th place will be held. 3rd place FC Seoul and 4th place Jeonbuk Hyundai face each other. Seoul has 33 points and Jeonbuk has 30 points, so the difference is only 3 points.
Jeonbuk showed a particularly strong appearance against Seoul, recording an undefeated record of 18 consecutive matches (13 wins, 5 draws). Jeonbuk drew 1-1 against Seoul in the 11th round confrontation just before it fell into a slump.
Jeonbuk experienced the humiliation of dropping to 10th place at one time due to a sluggish first half, but raised the mood with 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 games. Jeonbuk beat Jeju 2-0 in the previous 20th round and jumped to 4th place. Coach Dan Petrescu won his first league win against Jeju.
Seoul is continuing its undefeated streak despite the absence of Hwang Eui-jo, who left the team due to the end of his contract. Seoul drew 0-0 in the previous match against Daejeon and continues their undefeated streak with 1 win and 3 draws in 4 matches.
As Hwang Eui-jo, who led the attack, is missing, the score is decreasing, so a bold attack centered on Na Sang-ho and Willian is needed.
