    Ulsan to improve title hopes against Gyeongnam
    1115

    Ulsan Hyundai have been one of the stronger performers in the South Korean K-League this season so far. The two-time league champions could move to the top of the table on Tuesday morning (GMT) when they visit Gyeongnam.

    Ulsan looks to be in a three-way fight for the league title with top of the table Jeonbuk Motors and Seoul. As it stands Ulsan are just a point behind the leaders Jeonbuk and one ahead of the men from the capital.

    A 1-0 win over Incheon United last time out means that the visitors are unbeaten in eight league outings, having recorded six victories in the process. Ulsan have been prolific during their current strong run of form, scoring at least twice on five occasions.

    Their recent away form in the K-League has also played a big part in their title challenge, as they are unbeaten in four league matches on their travels, having secured ten points.

    Once again, the visitors scoring prowess has come to the fore in recent away matches, as they have scored at least twice in all four unbeaten away games, contributing to Ulsan’s last six away matches in the league producing over 2.5 goals.

    Gyeongnam are currently third from bottom in the table having taken just 14 points from their opening 19 league outings. The home side has a major fight on their hands to avoid finishing the campaign in the relegation group this season.

    The strugglers have failed to win in their last 15 games in the K-League. However, they have managed to grind out draws in their last four league outings, which all produced under 2.5 goals.

    Unsurprisingly, considering Gyeongnam’s recent form in the K-League, their recent home record is poor, as the home side has failed to win in seven league outings.

    Looking at the two sides recent form and positions in the table, it is little surprise that Forebet predicts that Ulsan will record a comfortable victory in a high scoring clash.
