On October 25, within the framework of the 26th round of the Korean K-League 1, the Ulsan – Chonbuk Motors meeting will take place. Who will win the gold medal match? Will the guests step down their championship credentials? Read about it in our forecast.
Ulsan could feel quite comfortable, have a one-three-point advantage, but the embarrassment in the last round in the confrontation with Pohang Steelers confused Kim Do Hoon’s charges with all the cards. Until the 59th minute, the game was equal, but the opponent was already in the lead thanks to the goal of the Russian striker Stanislav Ilyuchenko. But two removals signed a death warrant for the Tigers. As a result, Ilyuchenko and Aleksandar Palovechich brought the score to a completely indecent one, having issued a double – 0: 4.
Today it is enough for a team to draw and win against Gwangyu in the last round to become champions. But in words it is easier to do it than in practice.
Jeonbuk Motors has to thank Pohang for the gift they made to the reigning champion. Now the chances for the Greens to retain the title have significantly increased. True, the same Pohan almost took such an opportunity from Jose Morais’s team, having won in a head-to-head match two rounds ago with a minimum score.
Surely there were fears among the fans of the “warriors” that their team could swim and again lose points, now in the game with “Gwangyu”. But “Jeonbuk” played so convincingly that there were no questions to the players – 4: 1, the reigning champion’s advantage was overwhelming (22-4 in shots and 10-3 in shots on target, 11-4 in corners). Will there be one today?
This season, Chonbuk Motors have outplayed their opponents twice (2: 0, 2: 1);
Ulsan lost only one match at home in 2020, and that was Chonbuk.
09/15/20 Jeonbuk Ulsan Hyundai 2: 1
06/28/20 Ulsan Hyundai Jeonbuk 0: 2
11/23/19 Ulsan Hyundai Jeonbuk eleven
08/16/19 Jeonbuk Ulsan Hyundai thirty
07/14/19 Jeonbuk Ulsan Hyundai eleven
Guests in this pair will look somewhat preferable. Firstly, they already know how to beat the Tigers, and secondly, the team itself is more experienced, their hands and feet on the field will not shake. But the opponent may well not be able to control himself, one mistake can be costly, you will have to open up in this case that the “motors” are only on hand.
Our prediction is that Chonbuk Motors will win with a handicap (0) with a coefficient of 1.88 from BC Leon.
