Ulsan Hyundai to stay in cruise control
FC Seoul welcome K-League 1 leaders Ulsan Hyundai to the Sangam Stadium for Wednesday evening's clash. The hosts are likely to be up against it from the off. Read our preview here:
Ik-soo An will be heavily reliant upon goalscoring midfielder Sang-ho Na to break down the table-toppers' stoic backline. The 25 year old has hit five in just 13 starts.
Leonardo the inventor
Meanwhile, legendary figure Myung-bo Hong, who captained the Taeguk Warriors to the semi-final of the 2002 FIFA World Cup, has a bevy of attacking talent at his disposal for the Tigers. Brazilian forward Leonardo, on loan from Chinese Super League outfit Shandong Taishan, has seven goals, and is joined on that figure by Won-Sang Eom.
Though defensively capable in their own right, FC Seoul lack a cutting edge. That is bound to cost them the possibility of taking points off Ulsan Hyundai, who are still longer than evens with bet365 at 2.10 to pick up the win.
