Ulsan Hyundai FC, which just missed out on K-League title in 2019, looks for redemption starting Saturday

Imagine the pain of losing out on a title by goal difference after 28 weeks of action.

That is what happened last season to Ulsan Hyundai FC, which lost the 2019 K-League title to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors on the last day of the season.

To make things worse, Ulsan was leading the league from weeks 32-37, then gave up the title on the final afternoon.

Can this 2020 season be one of redemption? Ulsan opens up Saturday at home against Sangju Sangmu Phoenix, looking to keep pace already with Jeonbuk.

Ulsan has dominated this battle over the last few seasons, going 6-1-1 in its last eight against Sangju Sangmu. Ulsan has scored three or more goals four times in that period, so the home win and over 2.5 goals looks pretty tempting.
