Who will laugh and cry in the first East Coast… Ulsan-Pohang ‘East Coast Derby’

The two most atmospheric teams of this season meet on the East Coast.

Ulsan Hyundai and Pohang Steelers will clash on the 22nd at 4:30 pm at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium in the 8th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023.

This is the first East Coast Derby of the season. Ulsan (6 wins, 1 loss, 18 points) leads the league, and Pohang (4 wins, 3 draws, 15 points) is second. As the gap is 3 points, if Pohang wins, it will stand shoulder to shoulder with Ulsan.

Ulsan, which was running on a six-game winning streak in the opening game, suffered its first loss of the season when it was hit by Daejeon Hana Citizen. The achievement of 7 consecutive wins in 20 years and the 3rd opening of the K-League has also failed.

The atmosphere seems to be going down, but the team is rather excited. Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo mentioned that he felt relieved after the confrontation with Daejeon and explained that he had put down the burden of recording that weighed on the players. He predicted that the team’s performance was good and that the East Coast Derby would also have good results.

In terms of opponents, Pohang is slightly ahead with 64 wins, 52 draws and 58 losses. Last season, Pohang had the upper hand with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in 4 encounters.

However, when you meet Pohang, Ulsan, which had become smaller, is gradually disappearing. Under coach Hong’s system, Ulsan leads with 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in 7 confrontations. In particular, Rubikson, a freshman in Ulsan, is leading the scoring with 5 goals in 7 games.

The momentum of the visiting team, Pohang, is also unstoppable. It is the only one without a loss in the league this season.

In the previous game against FC Seoul, Na Sang-ho scored the opening goal in the 2nd minute, but Kim In-sung scored the first goal of the season and drew 1-1.

Pohang completed adaptation with major transfer students Jeka, Baek Sung-dong and Kim In-seong all scoring goals. Jeka is tied for 3rd place with 3 assists (1 goal), and Baek Seong-dong is recording 2 goals and 2 assists. Lee Ho-jae scored 3 goals in 6 games and is tied for 5th in scoring.

The firepower is weaker than Ulsan,스포츠토토 but the solidity of defense is similar. Pohang, along with Ulsan, are currently recording the lowest score (6 goals) in the K-League 1.

Attention is focusing on whether Ulsan will give Pohang its first loss of the season by repaying Daejeon, or whether Pohang will present Ulsan with its first two consecutive wins of the season.
