Ulsan Hyundai vs Sangju Sangmu Prediction

The Tigers were level on points with the Jeonbuk Motors the last year, at the top of the table. As per K League rules, in case of a tie in points, the team with the most number of goals get the superiority. As a result, the Motors with 72 goals took the title over the Tigers who had amassed 71 goals.

Which means, not only are the Tigers one of the best teams in the league, but they are also determined to deliver the league crown this time around. On the other hand, we have the Firebirds, who will automatically be eliminated from the competition at the end of the season, no matter in which position they finish.

Suffice it to say that the Firebirds are not at all motivated to perform well, and against one of the titans of the contest, they surely are the underdogs. Moreover, the Tigers have a phenomenal h2h record against them as well.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s deduced that Ulsan Hyundai are overwhelming favorites to post the win this weekend.
