Leading his team with 8 goals and the 7th leading scorer in the K-League, Maranhão is the Ulsan player to watch. This 28-year-old Brazilian striker has scored 4 goals in his last five games.
No. 10 Jair
With his team-leading 10 goals, Jair has been Jeju’s most dangerous player all season. He has been Coach Park’s go-to player for quick goals when the team is down. Look for him to be getting lobbed passes down the line and then striking to the net.
Odds (Source oddschecker.com)
Draw 12/5, Jeju 11/4
Last time these two teams met was on April 11, at Jeju World Cup Stadium, resulting in a goalless draw.
Jeju have been in a tailspin as of late losing three of their last five games and have been steadily dropping out of the standings. The Orange trail Ulsan by two points. If they trump the tigers, then they would unseat them of fourth and could possibly gain some much needed confidence to close the present 10 point gap between Jeju and the first place Jeonbuk Motors.
Ulsan want the win to distance themselves from fifth and try to edge out the third place Suwon Bluewings who have 39 points.
Like the last time these two teams faced, expect a low scoring game, and possibly lots of fouls with emotions running high.
The Weekly predicts a 1-1 game.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. July 12 at Munsu Stadium, Ulsan.
