ULS Vs SSMG Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Relinquishing last season’s title to Jeonbuk, Ulsan look to make amends this season
They missed out on first position in the K League 1 2019 to Jeonbuk by the barest of margins with goal difference refraining them from the coveted spot and ultimately ended up losing out on the revered trophy as well. It was a bitter pill to digest for second placed Ulsan Hyundai, a side despite its most ardent of efforts failed to convert them into a deserving season winning campaign.
It was an outcome which the side didn’t deserve, one they rued but also one they’ll be striving to turnaround come the new season of the marquee league. Back in the mix of things starting today when they take on Sangju Sangmu in their league opener, Ulsan will be looking to pull off an emphatic performance on the day.
And in Sangju, they have the ideal opposition to lay down their statement of intent against as well. Finishing last season in a lowly 7th position, Sangju endured a horrendous sortie, one which saw them rake up a mere 13 wins all across the course of the seaon.
At the fore of Sangju’s horrid sojourn the last time around was their waning defence, one which saw them unravel and ship in 48 goals. And their defensive acumen is set to vanish up in smoke today as well when they take on a side which piled on 71 goals last season, a team which will dole out a trashing to them in ther league opener.

ULS Vs SSMG Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The biggest source of aberration for us today was opting for four viable options from the visiting team for this tie. Luckily for us, our peril was solved to some extent with the advent of the team’s goal-keeper, Byeong Keun Hwang into our team with the player set to come out with a neat amount of save points from this one.
ULS Vs SSMG Dream11 Defenders
One of the most exquisite defence in the league last year with just the 39 goals conceded, it was only prudent of us to opt for all the defenders from Ulsan for this one. It’s a move we opted for not only owing to the side’s defensive dominance but also the fact that they’ll close out the match today, controlling it all across the 90 minutes courtesy of their attacking might.
And this discourse will see us usher in all of Seunghyun Jung, Minduk Kum, Jason Davidson and Dujae Won from the side with a cleansheet looking extremely plausible.
ULS Vs SSMG Dream11 Midfielders
Scoring an impressive five goals for his side in the previous edition of the league, Sungjoon Kim will be our selection from the home team for this one as the sole player from the team. Elsewhere, we have a duo make its way into our outfit from Sangju, one beginning with the selection of their top scorer last year, five goal man Jin Hyeok Kim.
Chang Jin Mum will be paired alongside him as we opt for two players whose calibre has seen them emerge as mainstays of the side’s attacking repertoire.
ULS Vs SSMG Dream11 Strikers
Not only his but the league’s leading scorer as well last season with a mammoth 16 goals, Figueiredo Pinto-Junior was always going to be an instant pick for us from the home team. Ulsan will also be represented by Bjorn Maar Johnsen, two players who form one of the most lethal partnerships in the league.
Elsewhere, the other side will have the lone player fill in for us with Seon Min Mum bring an end to our set of picks for the outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Figueiredo will move in as our captain after his 16 goals last year while Kim is the vice-captain.
