The surging Banfore Kofu were no match for Ulsan HD.

Ulsan won the first leg of their 2023-2024 Asian Champions League (ACL) Round of 16 first leg matchup against Kofu 3-0 on Friday at the Ulsan World Cup Stadium, thanks to a multi-goal performance from Lee Min-gyu (two) and Seol Young-woo (one). Despite playing in the J-League 2, Kofu made it to the round of 16 in the ACL.

Ulsan reached the round of 16 after finishing second in Group I with 10 points (3 W, 1 D, 2 L) in last year’s group stage. 카지노사이트 A draw in the second leg away from home is enough to advance to the quarterfinals. The second leg of the round of 16 between Ulsan and Kofu will be played at 6 p.m. on Nov. 21 at the Tokyo National Stadium, as Ulsan seeks its first Asian title in four years since 2020.

“It’s the first match of 2024, and neither team had perfect conditions, but everyone tried their best,” said Hong Myung-bo. The players did well beyond what we prepared for. There were some players who played together for the first time today, but overall they prepared well,” said Hong. “We played three at the start to settle down. After 15 minutes, we found our rhythm and played a formation that worked, and the first goal came.”

Seol Young-woo went down with a dislocated shoulder just before the end of the game.

Hong said, “There are some things that just won’t go away. At some point, we’ll have to make a decision and have surgery. We missed that time,” Hong said.

Seol Young-woo is a new find for the Qatar Asian Cup. He started every match. However, he was on the chopping block as Lee Kang-in’s ‘table tennis member’. The day before the quarterfinal match against Jordan, Lee and some of the younger players finished dinner early and went to play table tennis.

The players started to eat a little late, and while they were eating, they heard Lee Kang-in and others playing table tennis noisily. Son Heung-min tried to stop him, but he wouldn’t listen. Lee Kang-in became enraged and clashed, dislocating Son Heung-min’s finger in the process.

“I’m not aware of Seol Young-woo’s name coming up, and if it does, it should be confirmed, but national players should have high morals. Seol is still young and it’s his first time representing Korea. I think he will do well if he continues to play like he did in Ulsan.”

“I didn’t play much last year because I was rotated with Matan Adam. “

But he still scored 17 goals and became the top scorer. I’m a year older and I’m in better shape than last year. It’s a lot of pressure on me, but it’s good to score a goal every game. If I keep up my current form, I will create perfect chances every game,” he laughed.

The ‘new faces’ Hwang Seok-ho, Kim Min-woo and Go Seung-beom made their first appearance in Ulsan’s jersey. “There were some awkward moments at the start, and there were some positional overlaps, but after 20 minutes, we found our rhythm. For his first game, 메이저사이트 he did better than expected.”

Named MOM of the match, Lee In-gyu said, “This is our first match of the year. There must have been pressure on the new players because it was their first game, but they did well. I’m sure we’ll be a more exciting team in the future, and we’ll prepare better.” “As a striker, I think you have to have the desire to score goals every game. I don’t know how much playing time I will get, but I will try to capitalize on my chances every game,” he smiled.

Head coach Yoshiyuki Shinoda said that he “accepts the result” but “has no intention of giving up”.
