The Ulsan Hyundai players were ‘blown away’.
Ulsan Hyundai, coached by Hong Myung-bo, played Johor Darul Taqim (Malaysia) in the third match of Group I of the 2023-2024 Asian Champions League (ACL) at the Ulsan Munsoo World Cup Stadium on Thursday.
Something happened during the match that was no laughing matter. It was the 24th minute of the first half, with Ulsan leading 3-0. Johor’s Bersson pushed Ulsan’s Kim Tae-hwan to get to the ball. Bersson managed to get the ball and took a shot into the Ulsan warm-up zone. Ulsan players such as Bako and Uhm Won-sang were caught off guard as they warmed up in the warm-up area. They were stunned by Bersson’s shot. Ulsan’s coach protested strongly. However, it was Kim Tae-hwan, not Bersson, who received the warning. In fact, Bersson played on without receiving a card. 굿모닝토토 주소
The situation turned into a snowball. Kim Tae-hwan received another card in the 36th minute of the first half while defending. He picked up two yellow cards in less than 10 minutes. He left the field due to the accumulation of cautions. Kim Tae-hwan remained on the field for a while, seemingly in despair. He left the field after the referee asked him again. Ulsan ended the first half with a 3-0 lead.
Meanwhile, Ulsan had earlier defeated Phatum United 3-1 in the first leg. In the second leg, they lost 0-1 against Kawasaki Frontale. Ulsan will look to take on Johor in the third leg to gain an advantage in the group stage. Notably, Ulsan was also drawn with Johor in the ACL last season. However, they lost both matches 1-2. They failed to advance to the round of 16.
On this day, Ulsan came out with a 4-2-3-1 formation. Kim Ji-hyun started up front. Rubikson, Lee Dong-kyung, and Ataru provided support behind him. Vojanic and Kim Sung-joon were the offensive rings. The defense was led by Seol Young-woo, Im Jong-jong, Jung Seung-hyun, and Kim Tae-hwan. Cho Hyun-woo was in goal. However, Im Jong-woo was injured in the pre-match training. Kim Ki-hee took his place.
