Among the club’s most opening 4 consecutive wins… 7 consecutive wins, the most in the league
Ulsan Hyundai, which is running at the forefront of the professional football K League 1 2023, has challenged the record for the most consecutive wins at the opening of the league.
Ulsan, who is on a 4-game winning streak from the opening, will play the 5th round match against Jeju United in the ‘Jumin-gyu Derby’ on April 2nd. Ulsan, who had previously won three opening victories four times, is continuing its winning momentum last year by running four opening victories in a row for the first time as a club this season. 카지노
After becoming the top scorer in Jeju, Ulsan is leading the winning streak by newly joining Joo Min-gyu, Sweden’s Rubikson, and existing Eom Won-sang scoring two goals each. Martin Adam, who joined in the second half of last year and scored 9 goals (4 assists) in 14 games and helped Ulsan stand at the top of the league for the first time in 17 years, was quiet in the new season, but recently played 2 games in an A match wearing the Hungarian national team uniform. He sharpened his toes by scoring consecutive goals.
If Ulsan defeats Jeju United this time, it will stand shoulder to shoulder with Jeju (then Bucheon SK), who won 5 consecutive wins in 1999. The opening five consecutive wins is a record that corresponds to the third-highest in K-League 1 standards (excluding cup competitions). The record for the most wins in a row is 7, which was achieved by Suwon Samsung in 1998 and Seongnam Ilhwa (now Seongnam FC) in 2003.
Ulsan is showing an advantage over Jeju with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss last season, and a total of 64 wins, 55 draws and 50 losses. However, Jeju, which slipped to 10th place with 2 draws and 2 losses since the opening, is also determined to report its first win in front of home fans, so Ulsan’s winning streak will not be so easy.
Besides Ulsan’s winning streak, the point to watch is that Joo Min-gyu will visit Jeju for the first time after transferring. Joo Min-gyu played in Ulsan in 2019 and moved to Jeju the following year, leading Jeju’s K-League 1 promotion. He also scored 22 goals in 2021 to become the top scorer, and last year also ranked second in scoring with 17 goals.
Ulsan will play Suwon on the 3rd and Daejeon Hana Citizen on the 16th after the Jeju game.
