An indicator has been released indicating that head coach Hong Myung-bo’s Ulsan Hyundai is leading the way based on build-up soccer.

A weekly briefing for the second week of August of the Korea Professional Football Federation was held at 11 a.m. on the 8th at the press room on the second floor of the soccer hall in Gwanghwamun, Seoul. Data based on the end of the 25th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 (Part 1) in the 2023 season have been released. According to this, Ulsan, led by head coach Hong Myung-bo, had the highest number of team passes from the opening game to the 25th round. It ranked first in the K League 1 overall with 13,274 times. It is more than twice as different from Daegu FC (5,937 times). For reference, the average pass success of 12 K League 1 teams was 10,099 times.

Ulsan ranked the players in the top five data related to passes. It was not limited to any one position, including Kim Young-kwon, Seol Young-woo, Lee Myung-jae (defender), Lee Kyu-sung (midfielder), and Baco (attacker), but was included evenly in all positions. The Korea Professional Football Federation interpreted the indicator, saying, “It means that Ulsan plays high-quality build-up soccer based on accurate passes.” 토토사이트

Ulsan players also took the first to fourth places in the attack area. Seol Young-woo (482 attempts, 450 successes), Bako (384 attempts, 332 successes), Lee Kyu-sung (317 attempts, 275 successes) and Lee Myung-jae (304 attempts, 271 successes). Among other team players, Gwangju FC Doo Hyun-suk (315 attempts, 269 successes) ranked fifth.

Ulsan ranked first in the number of successful goal kicks. The main goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo topped the list with 149 innings. The Korea Professional Football Federation said, “This is because Cho Hyun-woo often connects goal kicks to nearby defenders with short passes. It means that Ulsan’s build-up soccer starts with the goalkeeper,” he analyzed.

Based on this build-up soccer, Ulsan is firmly maintaining its sole lead this season. With 18 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, and 57 points, the gap between the second-place Pohang Steelers (12 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses, 45 points) is 12 points. Ulsan has 49 goals, six more than FC Seoul (43 goals), the second-ranked team in this category, which is proof that it connects passes well with build-up soccer and even makes goals.

Meanwhile, FC Seoul, led by head coach Ahn Ik-soo, also uses build-up soccer, indicators showed. Kim Joo-sung, Osmar, and Ki Sung-yueng ranked third to fifth in successful short-distance passes. Ki Sung-yueng ranked first in the long-distance pass success category. Seoul players generally stood out in pass data, with Lee Han-beom ranking third in the forward pass and Na Sang-ho ranking fifth in the key pass success.
