The penultimate round of the second stage of the K-League Championship came to an end this week. As a result, Jeonbuk Hyundai regained lost ground in a championship match "Cheonwang Mountain Decisive Battle" and defeated leader Ulsan for the second time in more than a month. Hyundai took the lead in the final moments of hitting the championship and basically locked the league championship this season.
Before this game, Ulsan Hyundai had been leading the standings and once had a clear advantage. But in the past 3 rounds of the league, 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, and even defeated the Pohang Ironman in the last round, and the points were tied by Jeonbuk Hyundai behind him. And Sunday's game coincided with the first battle of the standings, and Jeonbuk Hyundai will naturally not let go of such an opportunity. On September 15th Jeonbuk Hyundai defeated its opponents in the league.
The game was also very stalemate. Both sides played more cautiously. However, in the second half, the Ulsan Hyundai defender rashly chose to header the ball back to the goalkeeper, but after returning to the top, he found that Jeonbuk Hyundai forward Gustavo had rushed to the South Korean gate in a ghostly manner. Zhao Xianyou stopped the team before and finally scored easily. The only goal in the game came from the Ulsan Hyundai defender's "own assist", which made many lottery fans shouted "caught" and "fixed ball."
In this way, Ulsan Hyundai lost the "Battle of Cheonwangsan" and lost in the most crucial match for the championship. Jeonbuk Hyundai continued to chase points in the championship stage and fortunately won 1-0 in this life-and-death matchup, thus achieving a point-surpass. Since Jeonbuk Hyundai will meet the desperate Daegu in the last round, the opponent has already set the season points ranking. As long as Jeonbuk Hyundai does not lose, it will directly aspire to the 2020 K-League championship.
According to the current situation, Ulsan Hyundai has lost hope of winning the championship after its defeat. Jeonbuk Hyundai finally succeeded and will win the K-League championship for 4 consecutive times, thus achieving 4 consecutive championships. After selling Jin Xinyu and sending away coach Choi Kangxi, Jeonbuk Hyundai still holds the dominant position of the Korean league. Under the special background of this year, the China-Japan-Korea League finally has its first championship team. It is worth mentioning that Jeonbuk Hyundai will play against Shanghai SIPG in the AFC Champions League next month.
