Ulsan and Daejeon will shake off the disappointment of two consecutive away games at home

By pestfood.com

Ulsan HD, which returned to Tiger Cave after two consecutive away games, will meet Daejeon Hana Citizen.

Ulsan will play the 14th round home game of Hana Bank K League 1 2024 against Daejeon at 4:30 p.m. on the 25th at Munsu Football Stadium.

Currently, Ulsan, which has played 13 matches, is ranking third with seven wins, three draws, and three losses with 24 points. It is in the lead with Pohang Steelers and Gimcheon Sangmu (25 points).

Ulsan recently lost Gwangju FC (1-2) and Gangwon FC (1-0) away, losing consecutive games for the first time this season. On the 19th, it was ahead of Gangwon in the number of shootings (10-8 in total, effective shooting 4-4) and possession (66-34), but it failed to win points due to lack of luck in scoring.

After returning to Ulsan, the team focused on recovering from fatigue that had been accumulated physically and mentally due to tight schedule. In addition, under the leadership of Hong Myung-bo, the coaching staff and the team had time to communicate by analyzing strengths and weaknesses that had been present in the matches.

Although the upward trend has stopped recently, Kim Ki-hee, the captain of the team, made a comeback to injury in a match against Gangwon Province in three months. He started with Hwang Seok-ho to build a central defense, adding stability to the team’s rear. He achieved a feat of playing in 200 K-League matches. Midfielder Lee Jae-wook (played in two league matches in 2023), who started as a pro last season, took the field for the first time in this season. In the 24th minute of the second half, he replaced Lee Chung-yong, revitalizing the team. 안전놀이터

Ulsan needs a turnaround in this home game. It was inferior to Daejeon with two draws and one loss last season, and lost 0-2 in its first match of the 2024 season on April 2. However, it is leading the team with 32 wins, 19 draws, and 13 losses overall. His goal is to make the fans cry for victory, believing that there will be no more losses.
