Gyeongnam and Ulsan Hyundai will face-off at the Changwon Football Centre Stadium in contrasting circumstances. While the visitors fight Jeonbuk for the first place, the hosts will miss out on the playoffs following an underwhelming league campaign.
The hosts’ poor run of form has seen them fail to pick up three points in their last eight games across all competitions (D5, L3). Toothless in the final third, the Roses have struggled to score over 1.5 match goals in all eight of those outings, scoring in the first half on just one occasion in the process. Although they’ve managed only one clean sheet in that period, Kim Jong-boo’s men have restricted their rivals to a maximum of one goal per match five times. Additionally, the Kindergarten clinched just one triumph in their last five home games across all competitions (W1, D1, L3), with each of those three defeats ending with the same 2-1 scoreline against their favor.
Meanwhile, the visitors are unbeaten in their last eight league outings (W6, D2) and are currently sitting one point adrift of the league toppers Jeonbuk. Three of their previous six league triumphs have come away from home and have seen them score 2+ match goals and concede precisely one goal apiece. Also, no team has collected more points on the road than Ulsan (18) this term, with the Gangs of Asia pulling off three wins in their last four league away matches (W3, D1). Notably, all four of those clashes have featured over 3.5 goals and saw both teams score.
