Hungarian frontline striker Martin Adam scored his first goal this season, and Ulsan Hyundai got 3 points out of a winless swamp in the last 2 games.
Ulsan won 1-0 in the Hana메이저사이트1 Q K League 1 2023 round 9 away match against Incheon United held at the Incheon Soccer Stadium on the 25th, keeping Adam’s opening goal in the first half to the end. Immediately after the opening, Ulsan, which continued its 6-game winning streak and went sideways with 1 draw and 1 loss in the previous 2 games, added another victory and ran to the top. They recorded 7 wins (1 draw and 1 loss) this season, raising their winning points to 22 points.
Ulsan’s opening goal came in the ninth minute of the first half. After Seol Young-woo’s pass, Kang Yoon-gu’s cross was sprinted from the front and Adam headed it. Adam’s tyranny goal this season.
Ulsan, who dominated the atmosphere with the opening goal, dominated the midfield area and dominated the flow of the game. Incheon occasionally had good chances through counter-attacks, but they were unable to break through Ulsan’s solid defense until the whistle blew at the end of the second half.
Ulsan head coach Hong Myung-bo reached 50 wins in the K-League with the victory over Incheon. With 50 wins, 22 draws and 13 losses in 85 matches, he reached 50 wins in 786 days since his first win 5-0 against Gangwon on March 1, 2021. He set a new record by 14 days earlier than Gangwon coach Choi Yong-soo’s 50 wins (800 days) in the shortest period. The minimum game (82 games) set by former Bucheon SK coach Cho Yun-hwan, 50 wins, was not surpassed by a 3-game gap.
Meanwhile, Pohang Steelers won the game 1-0 against Suwon Samsung at the Pohang Steel Yard by keeping Kim Seung-dae’s opening goal in the 4th minute of the first half. Pohang went undefeated (5 wins, 4 draws) in 9 games this season. Suwon, an away team that has sacked manager Lee Byeong-geun midway and has been playing the season under Choi Seong-yong’s acting system, has been sluggish since opening 9 games without a win (2 draws and 7 losses).
