10-man Ulsan defeats ‘unmanageable’ Johor 3-1

Ulsan Hyundai smiles despite being outnumbered.

Ulsan Hyundai won 3-1 against Johor in the third round of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League Group I on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Ulsan Munsu Stadium.

With their second straight win, Ulsan moved to second place in the group with 6 points (2W-1D).

Ulsan came out firing from the start. The result came quickly in the first five minutes. From a corner kick, Jung Seung-hyun won a contested ball. He pushed the ball out with his foot and the goalkeeper couldn’t catch it accurately, leading to the first goal.

Ulsan added a second goal in the 12th minute. Rubikson caught the ball from the second line and accurately split the goal as the opponent’s goalkeeper jumped out.

Ulsan scored a wedge goal in the 18th minute when Rubiksson made a smart ball trapping move on the right flank and scored with an accurate shot from inside the box.

In the 25th minute, Johor committed an unsportsmanlike conduct. During a counterattack, he delivered a harsh kick to an Ulsan player who was waiting on the sideline. The Ulsan players protested strongly, but only Kim Tae-hwan and Jung Seung-hyun were shown yellow cards.

A ridiculous situation arose. In the 36th minute of the first half, Kim Tae-hwan received a yellow card for a foul and was sent off for accumulating cautions. The first half ended 3-0 in favor of Ulsan.

With 10 men on the field, Ulsan introduced Lee Myung-jae at the start of the second half. Johor scored a goal in the ninth minute of the second half to pull within one goal. 메이저놀이터

Ulsan continued to play on the counterattack rather than forcing the issue. No more goals were scored. The game ended with Ulsan leading 3-1.
