Sydney FC vs Ulsan (By: Dajkula)
Sydney welcomes Ulsan in the first round of the group stages of the ACL. At the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Sydney will try to win against the uncomfortable Koreans and that is something the Australias, in general, have problems with. The Korean league is more technical and usually, the quality difference gets noticed on the field. Sydney had a rough time in the group last season and finished third with 1-3-2 in total. They had a rough group but still, they showed too little. Back then they had also some great players like Mierzejewski and Bobo which are not in the team anymore. Le Fondre is a proper replacement in attack but he doesn`t have a great backup. Brosque is the key player of the team but he is going on 35 and may not be as fresh as he used to be.
Sydney is second in the league but they have not been very convincing. After the humiliation in the ACL last season they are out to make things right.
Ulsan reached the 8`th finals of the ACL last season where they were eliminated by Suwon. The team is strengthened for this season and they will finally try to put an end to Jeonbuk in the league. Ulsan brought in Windbichler and the former Premier League player Kim Bo-Kyung. With the already familiar American Diskerud and the key striker Junior, Ulsan has some serious power up front. They beat Suwon in the first league match and go on this travel with high spirits. Ulsan has very good results against the Australians lately and they beat Brisbane 6:0 and 3:2 in 2017, and Victory by 6:2 with a 3:3 draw in 2018. As you can see these matches are quite interesting to look at.
It is only the first round but I think we will see plenty of goals in this match again.
