It was literally a feast of Wonder Goal. First, Rubikson succeeded with a left-footed volley, and in the 40th minute, Kim Young-kwon scored a mid-range goal that could only be seen in a game. Ulsan fans also grabbed their heads and couldn’t hide their surprise. Although Lee Ki-je scored a wonderful free-kick goal in the second half, Martin Adam did not miss the opportunity to take a penalty kick, which was obtained by the opponent’s mistake in the second half. 

Meanwhile, the home team, Suwon, steadily counterattacked, but could not hold on to Ulsan’s momentum. With the defeat, Suwon recorded their 10th loss (2 wins, 2 draws) in the league, and the gap with Gangwon FC in 11th place widened to 3 points.

The home team, Suwon, came out with a 3-5-2 formation. Ahn Byeong-jun and Yeom Ki-hoon, who reported the goal of Masu-geol in the previous game, were placed in the forefront. Then, Koh Seung-beom, Ryu Seung-woo, and Han Seok-jong took charge of the midfield. On the left and right sides, Lee Ki-je and Son Ho-jun came out. The back 3 was Park Dae-won, Han Ho-gang, and Jang Ho-ik, and the goal was guarded by Yang Hyung-mo. Yeom Ki-hoon, who showed a threatening appearance in the attacking area of ​​the previous game, started again this time.

The away team, Ulsan, came out with a 4-2-3-1 formation. Joo Min-gyu was placed in the front line, and Rubikson, Hwan Jae-hwan, and Lee Cheong-yong were responsible for the second line. The midfield was played by Lee Kyu-seong and Park Yong-woo. The back 4 consisted of Lee Myung-jae, Kim Young-kwon, Kim Ki-hee, and Seol Young-woo. The goalkeeper’s gloves were worn by Cho Hyeon-woo. Lee Cheong-yong made his first start this season. Coach Hong Myung-bo met with reporters before the game and expressed great expectations, saying, “The veteran’s presence gives the players a sense of stability.”

At the beginning of the first half, Ulsan started to develop on the right side as manager Hong Myung-bo said. Lee Chung-yong and Seol Young-woo harassed Suwon’s side.

However, Suwon opened the door. In the 5th minute of the first half, Ahn Byung-jun attempted a mid-range shot from a long distance on the left. Goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo blocked it reliably. 

The balance was broken in about 40 seconds. The attack on the right side that coach Hong Myung-bo said worked. After Seol Young-woo’s cross, Rubiksson shook Suwon’s net with a left-footed volley. It was a cross with a difficult trajectory, but Rubikson completed it with a wonder goal. Rubiksson’s 6th league goal.

However, Suwon, supported by the enthusiastic support of the home team, did not stop. In the 8th minute set-piece opportunity, Ahn Byeong-jun shook the Ulsan net with a neat right-footed shot. The moment Lee Gi-je’s wonderful cross from the left was brilliant, no one in Ulsan’s defense could mark Ahn Byung-jun. Ahn Byung-Jun’s 2nd goal in the league. Immediately after, a video review (VAR) was conducted for nearly 3 minutes, and the goal was recognized as it was. 

Suwon successfully launched a sharp counterattack in the 14th minute. Koh Seung-beom succeeded in stealing the ball, and Son Ho-jun, Yeom Ki-hun, Han Seok-jong, and Lee Ki-je made a wonderful connection play. Lee Ki-je’s pass was connected to Ahn Byung-jun in the box, but the touch was unstable and the attack could not be completed.

Meanwhile, around the 19th minute, both teams’ command towers brought out an early replacement card. Suwon took out Son Ho-jun and put in Jung Seung-won. Ulsan took out Hwang Jae-hwan and chose Bako. 

Ulsan actively tried to change direction and shake Suwon, but the space was seldom opened. In particular, the cooperative defense of Suwon’s midfielder shone.

In the 25th minute, Ulsan scored a shot after a long time. From the right side, Seol Young-woo attempted a powerful mid-range shot from a long distance with his left foot. The ball hit the edge of the near post and went off. A minute later, Ulsan’s attack was on the right. Lee Cheong-yong returned the ball, which went over the ball, into the box. Joo Min-kyu connected with a header, but it went over the goal. 

In the 27th minute, Ahn Byeong-jun in Suwon and Rubikson in Ulsan had a decisive chance, but both were canceled by the defense. A minute later, Park Yong-woo’s kick shot from outside the box went wide.

From the 31st minute, Bako’s Showtime unfolded. First, Ryu Seung-woo’s back pass was intercepted by Bakko. Bako connected to Joo Min-gyu in the box. Joo Min-gyu had a 1-1 chance, but his left-footed shot went into the side net. In the 34th minute, Bako stepped up. After exchanging 2-1 passes with Joo Min-kyu from the right side, Bakko attempted a sharp right-footed shot from inside the box. This time, it went off the right side of the goal. Ulsan’s attack continued. Again, Bako stole the ball from Han Seok-jong. Lee Gyu-seong took over the ball and entered the box, but Suwon’s defense shone. 

39′ Ulsan tried to attack from the left. Rubikson headed Lee Myung-jae’s cross, but it hit the post. 

A minute later, Ulsan’s attack bore fruit. After several failed crosses, this time Kim Young-kwon tried a mid-range shot from a long distance. The ball went into the corner of the goal on the other side. It was literally a goal like a ‘missile’. Ulsan fans also expressed surprise by holding their heads. It was Kim Young-kwon’s K-League debut goal, a shot from a distance of over 25m.

In the 3rd minute of extra time, Suwon launched a counterattack with Yeom Ki-hun attempting several sharp passes, but it was canceled by the Ulsan defense. The first half ended with Ulsan leading 2-1. 

At the start of the second half, manager Kim Byung-soo brought out a replacement card. He aimed for a counterattack by excluding Ryu Seung-woo and Yeom Ki-hoon and putting in Kim Tae-hwan and Lee Sang-min. 

However, Bako opened the door in the second half. Baco received Lee Chung-yong’s pass from the right side and attempted a shot in the box despite being checked by three defenders. The ball was deflected and could not be finished.

After that, the two teams exchanged attacks. Lee Sang-min, who was replaced first, counterattacked once, but Ulsan blocked it. Two minutes later Ju Min-gyu and Lee Cheong-yong broke the right side and connected to the center, but Kim Tae-hwan blocked it and succeeded in defending. Following Lee Myeong-jae’s corner kick in the 10th minute, Ju Min-gyu’s header went wide to the left of the goal. Suwon developed the ball on the half line several times, but continued to pass the ball over to Ulsan.

The tension in the second half collapsed with a single defensive mistake. In the 39th minute, Lee Sang-min anxiously kicked a high ball into the box. Lee Sang-min tried to kick the ball back down, but kicked Seol Young-woo. A penalty kick was awarded. The kicker was Martin Adam, who scored the 3rd goal in the league neatly and Ulsan took the lead again. It was Martin Adam’s second goal in a row.먹튀검증
