Top-ranked Ulsan welcomes home the team that handed them their only loss this season, Daejeon. Park Yong-woo and Lee Jin-hyun, the center backs for both teams, will be looking to get on the clean sheet.

Ulsan Hyundai and Daejeon Hana Citizen will meet in the 15th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Munsoo World Cup Stadium in Ulsan at 7 p.m. on April 28. Currently, Ulsan is in first place with 37 points (12 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss), while Daejeon is in fifth place with 21 points (6 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses).

The home team leads the standings by 10 points over second-place Jeju, which has played one more game. Since their draw against Pohang in the eighth round, they have won six games in a row. In the midweek FA Cup fourth round (round of 16) against Jeonnam, they won 2-1 thanks to Martin Adam’s stoppage-time winner. Yoon Il-rok, Ataru, Kim Tae-hwan, and Lim Jong-joong, who have not played much, have been rotated to the back to give the main players a rest, and they are ready for revenge in Daejeon.

Daejeon’s away form hasn’t been great lately. They lost their last two league games, Pohang and Daegu, to record their first back-to-back losses of the season, and they also lost their FA Cup match against Jeju in midweek after coming from behind. To make matters worse, Joo Se-jong was sent off late in the second half of the Daegu game for a deep tackle on an opponent and will be unavailable for the Ulsan game. However, the fact that Daejeon can move up to third in the standings if they get this game, and that Ulsan is the only team they’ve lost to, is something to look forward to.

Park Yong-woo and Lee Jin-hyun are the key players of the day. Park Yong-woo was the lifeblood of Ulsan last season, leading them to the title. This season, he’s been a dedicated midfielder, starting every game. Even in the 14th round against Suwon, Park was the team’s top passer (112), fulfilling his role as an offensive link.

At this point, there is talk of him joining the team. It’s time for the national team to find a replacement for defensive midfielder Jung Woo-young. Park Yong-woo isn’t out of the question. Baek Seung-ho and Son Jun-ho, two of the most talked-about replacements for Jung, are injured and detained in China, respectively. That’s why it will be interesting to see if Park Yong-woo, who has been doing the heavy lifting in the Ulsan midfield, will be called up for the June A match.토토사이트

Park Yong-woo plays in the defensive midfield, where he and Lee Jin-hyun combine in the box-to-box. His wide vision and kicking ability have helped him rank third in the league in offensive points with three goals and five assists. Lee Jin-hyun is also being talked about for the national team. He made his mark against Jeonbuk on March 26, scoring from a corner kick in front of Klinsmann. The aggressive pressing style of the club team’s game is also in line with Klinsmann’s concept of attacking soccer.

In a press conference on June 26, Klinsmann said, “I think players who are showing good performance should be selected,” hinting at a new face for the June A match. If Lee Jin-hyun can perform well once again against Ulsan, he will be able to wear the Taeguk mark again after not wearing it since March 2021.
