Match Information. Referee: Lee Dong-Jun (Kor), Venue: Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium (Ulsan)
In the first round of the South Korean K-League 1, one of the richest teams in the division, Ulsan Hyundai, will compete with the Sangju Sangmu team, which is difficult to rank among the elite of Korean football. It is not surprising that the Sangju Sangmu in the pair is quoted as an underdog. Also, we have no doubt that the winner of the regular season of 2019 will do everything possible to open season with victory, even in home match.
Last season, Ulsan Hyundai managed to finish the regular season in first place, beating Chonbuk by one point. But after an additional five rounds among the remaining six teams, Ulsan still lost to Chonbuk primacy, however, only the difference in goals, a very disappointing failure.
Sangju Sangmu last season played in the playoffs for the fall. Having taken eighth place in the table, the team played another 5 meetings for preserving residence registration. Since the guests were far from the departure zone, nothing threatened them.
- Ulsan Hyundai. When the odds are 1.60 the expected chance of winning is 63%, but this team actually wins 68% matches with these odds.
- Sangju Sangmu. When the odds are 5.50 the expected chance of winning is 18%, but this team actually wins 1% matches with these odds.
Head to head streaks last 5 matches
- Over 2.5 goals – 4/5

Ulsan is clearly stronger than its rival. This is evidenced by the statistics of face-to-face meetings – 4 victories in 5 fights.
Ulsan Hyundai vs Sangju Sangmu Prediction
The fact that Ulsan will win, we have little doubt, the question is what kind of duel will turn out in character. Given the start of the season and the fact that everyone has already missed football, we expect a fun meeting and high performance in it. Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
