Ulsan Hyundai vs. Sangju Sangmu Betting – K League 1, October 2, 2020

| October 1, 2020 6:12 am PDT

It had looked like the season was going end in a fairly predictable fashion. But last weekend’s results showed that the championship group is likely to throw up a few more surprises in the next few weeks.

Ulsan’s draw with Daegu means that the Horangi is still top of the table, but is now tied with Jeonbuk on 51 points. This week Ulsan welcomes Sangju Sangmu to Big Crown.

Ulsan Hyundai to Win -250
The Draw +350
Sangju Sangmu to Win +550

Last week’s draw has not dampened Betway’s enthusiasm for an Ulsan win this weekend. The bookie makes the home time a clear favorite, even though Sangju Sangmu has been one of the better teams in K League 1 this season. The home win wager is probably the one to go for, but there will be some who will like the look of the odds for the draw here.

Match Preview

Ulsan is still top of the table after the draw with Daegu, but it will be Jeonbuk who now has the confidence going into the last four games of the season. It had looked like it was another three points for the league leaders until Daegu scored deep into stoppage time.

Junior grabbed yet another goal quickly after Cesinha had opened the scoring for the Sky Blues in the first half – but it is the late drama that means that winning every game is still vital for Ulsan. Manager Kim Do-hoon will not want to rely on his side having a superior goal count at the end of the season.

As Ulsan was dropping points last week, Sangju Sangmu was inadvertently helping its main rivals by losing at home to Jeonbuk. It has been an impressive season for the military side and a narrow defeat to the Green Warriors is not an embarrassing result at all.

Jeonbuk would no doubt love Sangju Sangmu to do it another favor this weekend but that is easier said than done. The two previous games between these two this season ended in very heavy defeats and this army team seems to be one that Ulsan particularly enjoys playing against.

Prediction and Betting Pick

  • Ulsan Hyundai to Win

There is absolutely no further room for error now for Ulsan as it hones in on the championship. Allowing Jeonbuk to draw level on points was a mistake and the Horangi will be looking at the fixture between the two on the penultimate day of the season as the real title decider. Three points for the home side on Friday should keep that belief alive.
