    Ulsan to enhance title hopes with win over Jeju

    Ulsan Hyundai are sitting at the top of the South Korea K-League after 23 rounds of the league campaign.

    However, with Jeonbuk Hyundai breathing down their necks, it is vitally important that the league pick up a result away at Jeju United on Saturday morning.

    Ulsan leads Jeonbuk by just two points with ten games remaining of the K-League season. The tight title race looks to be a two-horse race now that FC Seoul have dropped off the pace slightly.

    In contrast to Ulsan, Jeju United are struggling in the K-League this season. Not only are the home side in the relegation group, but they are also just two points off the bottom of the table. They are unlikely to avoid finishing in the relegation group this season. However, they will be looking to avoid the stigma of finishing bottom of the league.

    Ulsan head into this match 13-games unbeaten in the South Korean top-flight, having recorded nine wins in the process. The visitors have also been prolific in front of goal of late, scoring at least two goals in four of their last five league matches. Both teams have also scored in the visitors last five league outings.

    Jeju have actually been in decent form of late in the K-League, as they are now four games unbeaten in the South Korean top-flight. However, they have drawn their last three matches against Pohang Steelers, Gyeongnam and last time out Jeonbuk Motors.

    Like the visitors, the home side has also been prolific in the K-League, scoring at least twice in three of their last four games.

    With Ulsan unbeaten in six away games, it seems unlikely that Jeju United will maintain their recent undefeated league run. In fact, Forebet predicts that Ulsan will record a comfortable victory in a high-scoring encounter.
