Ulsan Hyundai vs Urawa Red Diamonds Prediction
Hyundai won the last three games in a row and was unbeaten in eight of their last nine. They also won seven of these and scored two or more goals in five of the last eight. At home, they are unbeaten in their last five fixtures and won ten of their last twelve.
Going on, in front of the home crowd, the team conceded just a single goal from the last five appearances combined.
On the other hand, Urawa was winless in five of their last seven fixtures and conceded twice or more in four of these ties. On the road, they are winless in their last two trips, and as such, faces a tough task this Wednesday.
They are trailing in aggregate, and worryingly lost the first leg, which was at home. The two away goals will be on the back of their mind, and even if they win 0-1, it won’t be enough. The team will have to attack from the beginning, and Hyundai would be smart to take advantage of this handicap.
Ulsan had the additional confidence of being one of the toppers of their league, while their counterparts are struggling in the mid-table of the J1 League. Count on the hosts to have a great day on the field this week.
