Ulsan to Win
Round 1 action witnessed Ulsan Hyundai crawl to a 0-1 away victory over Vietnamese outfit The Kong. Meanwhile, Pathum United was emphatic in their 4-1 triumph over Kaya. Pathum were favourites for the home fixture but do not enjoy that title as they make the trip to South Kore. In Ulsan, they have their biggest threat in Group F and with good reason. The South Koreans are unbeaten in 11 competitive fixtures and will look to increase it beyond this match.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
The margin of victory for Ulsan and United is in stark contrast. Viettel suffered a loss by a narrow margin, while Kaya was taken to the cleaners. The visitors have seen just one other match out of their last ten competitive outings end with an Over 2.5 goal scoreline. Meanwhile, Ulsan has been prolific and four of their last five fixtures ending with three goals or more. As the two sides face off with each other, the latter's dominance will be exhibited and their recent form should rule the roost on the night.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their last eight fixtures, Ulsan has conceded eight goals with three clean sheets. Across the same period, Pathum United have conceded only twice but have been shut out twice whilst also seeing five clean sheets in their favour. Whilst giving an impressive account of their abilities at the back, they have also impressed going forward. Taking into consideration the unpredictable nature of continental matchups, we believe both sides should be able to trouble the scorers in an attempt to take home the three points on offer.
Ulsan vs BG Pathum United: Team News and Match Preview
Hong Myung-bo saw his side finish runners up in the K1 League last season and has worked on them to ensure a repeat does not happen. They have raced to pole place in the competition with a four-point advantage over their rivals. The Ulsan Hyundai faithful will have them translate this form on the continent, where expectations are always high on the team to deliver. Chief to their cause will be Junior Negao, the forward who has scored six goals in his last ten competitive fixtures.
BG Pathum United
The Rabbits were crowned champions of Thailand last year and are at the top of the rankings this year as well. This has been managed through a resolute defence, which has only conceded 13 goals in 30 league outings. Aurelio Vidmar will want that form to transcend into their AFC CHampions League engagements. However, they received a setback as S. Rota won't be able to play this match as he got a red card in the 4-1 win over Kaya. Victor Cardozo will be available for this fixture as he looks to add to his tally of 15 goals this season.
