Ulsan Hyundai remains on top of the K League standings despite losing its second game in a week. As a result, Pohang Steelers inched closer to the first spot after its win against Jeju United.
According to betting odds experts, Ulsan lost to Incheon United last week. In addition, they lost against the Bluewings on Saturday. Ulsan’s defense was shaky, allowing Jeon Jin-woo to score the first goal in the 39th minute.
The Bluewings maintained the momentum in the second half. Fejsal Mulic scored the team’s second goal in the 73rd minute. According to real time sports betting sources, Bluewings continued with their attacks. Thus, Ulsan failed to turn things around.
Ulsan Loses Second Game in a Week
The third goal was scored by Kim Ju-chan in the 90th minute from just inside the penalty area. The final score was 3-0, but in the last seconds of extra time, Ulsan’s Valeri Qazaishvili scored a goal to make it 3-1.
Saturday’s triumph was only Bluewing’s third win this season, with their previous coming against Incheon in May.
Despite the win, they remained in the last position in the standings, behind Gangwon FC by just one point (16 points to 15).
While Ulsan suffered its first back-to-back losses of the season, they maintained their No. 1 ranking, 12 points ahead of the Steelers. FC Seoul, who was also in play on Saturday, could not close the gap with the Steelers as they were held to a 1-1 tie by Gangwon.
Pohang Steelers Narrows Gap
At a separate match, Gwangju FC and Daegu FC played to a 1-1 tie in Gwangju. The weekend’s most exciting and productive match was the Steelers’ six-goal triumph over Jeju on Sunday at Pohang Steelyard.
According to online sports betting sources, Pohang started well and took the lead in the 15th minute on a goal by Goh Young-joon. Despite several opportunities, neither team could score again in the first half, but things heated up in the second.
