A chance to extend their lead.
Ulsan Hyundai will face Gwangju FC in the 34th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 2 p.m. on Nov. 21 at the Gwangju Football Stadium. Ulsan is currently in first place in the league with 67 points, while Gwangju is in third place with 54 points.
The final round has begun. The match between Ulsan and Gwangju kicks off the second leg of the Final Round, which began yesterday (October 20) with matches between Pohang Steelers and Incheon United. Both teams have a clear goal in mind, so we expect this match to be quite competitive.
Ulsan is especially motivated. Ulsan is currently on track to win back-to-back league titles for the first time in their history. After racking up points at a dominant pace from the start of the season to climb to the top of the standings, Ulsan has held on to the top spot even as the season comes to a close. The team has faltered in the second half of the season, but despite Pohang’s late surge, Ulsan still has the advantage.
The opportunity to extend their lead has arrived. Pohang drew with Incheon on the 20th, bringing the gap between the two teams to eight points. As the chasers, Ulsan is happy to see Pohang draw. If Ulsan wins the match against Gwangju and earns three points, it will extend its lead over Pohang to 11 points. This would allow them to catch up with their rivals and take a step closer to the title.
The team also has a number of players back from the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. The return of Uhm Won-sang and Seol Young-woo, who won gold medals at the Asian Games, is a huge boost for Ulsan. Having managed to stay undefeated in the three league matches they played in September while they were away, 토토사이트 winning one, drawing two, and winning three, including the last match against Incheon, Ulsan will now focus on the remaining matches to secure the title early.
Of course, it won’t be easy. Ulsan has won both meetings with Gwangju this season, but suffered a 0-2 defeat in their most recent encounter. Ulsan’s disappointment was compounded by the fact that Gwangju dominated the game. Ulsan will be looking to extend their lead over Pohang with this match, while Gwangju will be hoping to avenge their last match.
