Ulsan-Jeonbuk, ACL Quarterfinals Second Leg Clash

Toward the Club World Cup!... Ulsan-Jeonbuk, ACL Quarterfinals Second Leg Clash on the 12th



‘ACL semifinals + Club World Cup advancement’, hunting two birds with one stone

This season's second 'Hyundai Family' between Ulsan HD and Jeonbuk Hyundai in the hunt for the 'two birds with one stone' of advancing to the semifinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) and qualifying for the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup. The ‘derby’ unfolds. 바카라사이트

Ulsan and Jeonbuk will play the second leg of the 2023-2024 ACL quarterfinals at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan at 7 p.m. on the 12th.

The two teams drew 1-1 in the first game on the 5th, shouting “General and Meng.”

Jeonbuk Song Min-gyu scored the first goal in the 4th minute of the first half, and Ulsan Lee Myung-jae scored the equalizer in the 32nd minute of the second half, and the game ended in a draw.

Ulsan and Jeonbuk, who finished the first 'Hyundai Derby' this season with a draw, will now decide who will advance to the semifinals in their second match.

Ulsan and Jeonbuk prepared for the second leg of the ACL quarterfinals by activating their rotation in the second round of Hana Bank K League 1 2024 held on the 9th.

In the second round, Ulsan defeated Gimcheon FC 3-2 thanks to Lee Dong-kyung's '2 goals, 1 assist one-man show', while Jeonbuk drew 1-1 with Suwon FC amid Boateng's 'red card'.

For this reason, Ulsan is better than Jeonbuk in terms of team atmosphere, but since it is a match between rivals, the players' desire to win and their physical condition on the day of the game are expected to determine the winner.

Against Gimcheon, Ulsan gave rest to Seol Young-woo, Lee Gyu-seong, and Lee Myung-jae, led by 'goal scorer' Ju Min-gyu.

Meanwhile, Lee Dong-kyung led the team to victory by scoring multiple goals and even providing one assist.

Jeonbuk Hyundai also chose a large-scale rotation in the match against Suwon FC, removing most of the key players such as Kim Jin-soo, Park Jin-seop, and Song Min-gyu from the lineup, and with Boateng's sending off, they struggled to win 1-1.

As both Ulsan and Jeonbuk have given sufficient rest to their key players, a 'fiery showdown' is expected in this second game.

What is more appealing to both teams than the ACL semifinal tickets is the FIFA Club World Cup ticket.

Starting with the 2025 tournament, FIFA expanded the number of participating teams from 7 to 32 and changed the hosting cycle to 4 years.

In addition, the total prize money is expected to rise significantly to 150 million euros (about 215.9 billion won), and the total participation fee for the competition is expected to rise significantly to 50 million euros (about 72 billion won).

Even if you advance to the Club World Cup finals, you can sit on a cushion of money.

Four 2025 Club World Cup tickets were distributed to AFC, two of which were already taken by Al Hilal (Saudi Arabia), the 2021 ACL winner, and Urawa Reds (Japan), the 2022 ACL winner.

The fate of the remaining two players will be determined by the ACL results of the 2023-2024 season.

In the 'Federation Rankings' based on this season's winning team and ACL performance over the past four years, the team that ranks highest, excluding the winning teams, will occupy the remaining tickets.

Al Hilal, who has already secured a ticket to the Club World Cup, is currently ranked first in the federation rankings, Jeonbuk is second (80 points), and Ulsan is third (72 points).

Jeonbuk, which is superior in the 'federation rankings', will secure a ticket to the Club World Cup if it wins the second leg of the ACL quarterfinals.

On the other hand, Ulsan needs one more win after advancing to the semifinals to beat Jeonbuk, so winning this match is a necessary condition to advance to the Club World Cup.
