Candidates for the championship with mixed emotions in the opening match Ulsan won and Jeonbuk drew

Ulsan Ataru is celebrating with his teammates after scoring the first goal in the professional soccer ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2024’ game between Ulsan HD and Pohang Steelers held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium on the afternoon of the 1st.

Ulsan HD, who are trying to win the K League 1 title for the third consecutive time, started the season on a good note by winning the opening match attended by 28,683 people. Jeonbuk Hyundai, which is mentioned as a strong opponent for Ulsan, struggled and failed to secure a victory in its home opening game.

Ulsan defeated Pohang Steelers 1-0 with Ataru’s winning goal in the first round of Hana Bank K-League 1 2024 held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium on the 1st.

As a result, Ulsan, who rose to the top of K-League 1 for two consecutive years, defeated ‘East Coast derby rival’ Pohang in the first game, raising expectations for the new season. 스포츠 토토사이트

Pohang, last year’s FA Cup winner, entered this year under coach Tae-ha Park, but failed to secure a win in three consecutive games. Pohang had only a draw (1 draw, 1 loss) in the 2023-24 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League round of 16 match against Jeonbuk Hyundai.

Ulsan dominated the game from the start by increasing possession of the ball through short passes. However, after Ataru’s shot in the 2nd minute of the first half, there was a lack of detail in the attack and no chance was created.

Pohang first stabilized its defense through three backs and then aimed for a one-shot counterattack through Giorgi and Hong Yun-sang.

Ulsan, who had a frustrating time leading the game but not being able to seize a decisive opportunity, changed their attack by replacing Jang Si-young and inserting Eom Won-sang in the 29th minute of the first half. Immediately after the introduction of Eom Won-sang, Ulsan’s Kim Min-woo hit Pohang’s net, but offside was declared and the score was cancelled.

Pohang, who had overcome the crisis of conceding a goal, scored two minutes later when Giorgi beat Kim Young-kwon and scored, but the score was invalidated due to offside.

Ulsan stepped up the offensive at the start of the second half and succeeded in scoring first in the 6th minute of the second half. Ataru struck from the left side to the center and sent the ball strongly toward the goal, passing through both teams’ players and hitting the net.

As a result, Ataru became the protagonist of the first goal in K League 1 this season.

Immediately after conceding a goal, Pohang made changes to the midfield by removing Kim Jun-ho and inserting Oberdan, who returned from injury. After the introduction of Oberdan, Pohang gradually regained momentum with Hong Yun-sang and Han Chan-hee attempting shots in succession.

Pohang strengthened the front line in the 27th minute of the second half by adding tall and strong Lee Ho-jae. Afterwards, Pohang tried to tie the score with a cross towards Giorgi and Lee Ho-jae at the front line, but they were unable to get a decisive shooting opportunity due to poor accuracy.

Pohang, who was being dragged, was outnumbered as Aspro was sent off in the process of preventing Eom Won-sang’s counterattack at the end of the second half.

Ulsan, which had one man more, was able to block Pohang’s strong counterattack and win by one goal.

Jeonbuk drew 1-1 in the home opening match against Daejeon Hana Citizen held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.

The away team, Daejeon, took the lead with Gutek’s goal in the 10th minute of the first half. Gutek pushed in a cross passed by Jin-seong Park from the left flank, which Jun-beom Kim redirected as a header.

Gutek, who was out of action due to a ruptured cruciate ligament after joining Daejeon last summer, scored a goal in his K League debut.

Jeonbuk, who suffered an unexpected blow, launched a counterattack by bringing in Song Min-gyu in the 35th minute of the first half. After taking the lead, Jeonbuk stepped up the offensive, but was disappointed at the end and was unable to tie the score.

Accordingly, Jeonbuk stepped up the offensive by bringing in Lee Soo-bin in the 13th minute of the second half, and Lee Dong-jun and Ahn Hyeon-beom in the 34th minute of the second half.

Jeonbuk’s replacement card was correct. Six minutes after being put in, Ahn Hyun-beom scored the tying goal with the help of Song Min-gyu.

Afterwards, Daejeon and Jeonbuk continued their attacks to win, but showed a lack of decisiveness and ended up sharing one point each. 슬롯게이밍
