“We will do our best to get the result we want.”

Ulsan Hyundai will host BG Patum United in their 2023-24 ACL Group I first leg match at the Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium on June 19 (KST).

Ulsan and Patum met two years ago in the 2021 edition of the competition. At that time, Ulsan only played away from home, winning both matches 2-0 to show their dominance.

Of course, Pathum are no pushovers. They have two wins, two draws, and an unbeaten record this season. With Ulsan’s recent slump, it’s not going to be easy.
Here is the full interview with Ulsan head coach Hong Myung-bo and Cho Hyun-woo.

Q. Preparation for the match.

Coach Hong Myung-bo: We are playing our first game after the ACL. They are a very good team. We played them two years ago, and we have some players left. We are in the middle of the season. We will try to continue the good trend not only in the ACL but also in the upcoming K League.

Cho Hyun-woo_ We’re playing our first ACL game. I’m really looking forward to it. I hope both teams have fun and finish well without any injuries. Many Ulsan fans come to the stadium to support us at every home game, so we will bring both performance and results.

Q. Facing each other for the first time in two years, how do you compare the past and present form of the two teams?

Coach Hong Myung-bo: The match two years ago was away, and there are still some players who played against each other back then. I think we are a better team now because we have good players. Now it’s home and away. In that sense, 소닉카지노 we will definitely win the first game at home.

Q. Do you think the recent trend of the league will affect your ACL?
Hong Myung-bo_ We’ve been slumping in the league. On the contrary, ACL wants to turn the game into a game that will allow the rest of the league to go upward. We will definitely win tomorrow’s game and the games against Suwon FC and Pohang Steelers so that we can have a good flow.

Q. You’ve played against Patum in the past, what do you remember about them? I wasn’t there when they won the title in 2020. Personally, I think I’ll be more eager.
