Draw

Ulsan have a slump in terms of home form with the team only managing wins over the league’s strugglers like Suwon and Gwangju. They have had draws against Jeonbuk Motors and Suwon Bluewings. Even though Pohang Steelers have done quite well on the road by winning three of their last five away matches, this match could end as a stalemate.

Total goals over 2.5

This match sees two teams on a confident touch going forward. They have averaged over 1.5 goals each in the last four matches. The head-to-head record also demonstrates a tendency to provide plenty of entertainment in the form of goals. Just two of the last five league meetings between Ulsan Hyundai and Pohang Steelers has been a low scoring match.

Both teams to score – yes

This is a match between two teams who have a ton of attacking potential. This was displayed quite aptly in the midweek matches with both teams scoring four goals in their respective matches. Pohang Steelers have been unable to score in just one of their last nine league matches, while Ulsan have been unable to score in just two home games this season.

Ulsan vs Pohang Steelers: Match Preview and Team News

Ulsan

The midweek win over Jeonbuk Motors will come as a huge boost for Ulsan Hyundai, who have had some mediocre results against the top teams of late. The away victory has propelled Myung-bo Hong’s men to the top of the table although they have played a game more. The team has to preserve this position while also focusing on the upcoming FA Cup match.

Pohang Steelers

Pohang Steelers were a relieved team to be at the right end of a 4-3 thriller. There were plenty of lessons and positives for Gi-dong Kim in the game against Suwon, as the team almost threw away a 3-0 lead. A major positive ahead of their trip to face now-league leaders Ulsan Hyundai will be the away form, which has improved over the last few weeks.
