Ulsan Hyundai vs Pohang Steelers
South Korea – K League 1
Date: Sunday, 27 March 2022
Kick-off at 06:00 UK/ 07:00 CET
Venue: Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium.

Ulsan had narrowly missed out on the title the last season, to arch-rivals Jeonbuk. And this seems to have motivated them to go after the top-most spot right from the get-go in 2022.

So far this new campaign, they have been the best in the competition, and they have shown no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Meanwhile, Pohang Steelers had finished barely above the relegation cut-off the previous season, and they also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Ulsan this Sunday at their home.
