Pohang succeeded in suppressing the steamship. In the 14th minute of the first half, Koh Young-jun completely escaped to the back space of Ulsan’s defense, and calmly shook the net, passing the goalkeeper. Shim Sang-min’s sharp pass also shined, but it was painful for Ulsan to focus on defense that completely missed Ko Young-jun.

Ulsan launched a counterattack. In the 21st minute of the first half, Bako exchanged good one-two passes with Joo Min-gyu and then aimed at the goal with a powerful mid-range shot. However, goalkeeper Hwang In-jae threw himself and blocked it with his fingertips.

Injury bad news hit Ulsan. In the second half of the second half, Jeong Seung-hyun, who was taping and running, collapsed after a physical fight with Jeka and complained of pain. Eventually, after a while, he was replaced by Lim Jong-eun and left the field.

Koh Young-jun scored multiple goals with a wonderful mid-range shot. In the 10th minute of the second half, he fired a powerful right-footed shot even with two Ulsan central defenders in front, and once again broke through goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo.

Ulsan started chasing. In the 15th minute of the second half, after a corner kick, the ball hit the Pohang defense and flowed backwards in the confusion in front of the goal. Joo Min-kyu did not miss it and finished it calmly and scored the comeback goal.

Both teams missed a crucial opportunity each time. In the 27th minute of the second half, Lee Myung-jae’s shot from inside the box was blocked by going straight to the goalkeeper, and in the 35th minute of the second half, Ko Young-jun’s shot was blocked by goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo as it did not work properly.

Ulsan threw the last game. In the 38th minute of the second half, manager Hong Myung-bo took out Lee Kyu-seong and Rubik’s Hand, and put in Kim Min-hyuk and Cho Hyun-taek to try to make a change.

At the last moment, Bakko saved Ulsan. He scored the equalizer in the 45th minute of the second half by volleying the ball from a free kick opportunity. It was a perfect shot that hit the crossbar and was sucked into the goal. 토토사이트
