Therefore, Ulsan must win this game and also win the home game against Kawasaki on the 12th of next month to enter the round of 16. Ulsan, who has already confirmed winning the K League 1, is focusing on this game. After taking a day's rest after the league game against Incheon on the 24th, he left Incheon International Airport and arrived in Thailand on the 26th. Ulsan showed a strong side against Pathum. They faced each other twice in the 2021 group stage and won both times 2-0. In the first match of the group stage on September 19, they won 3-1 thanks to Martin Adam's hat trick. Incheon also has an important game ahead of it. Incheon will play the 5th game of Group G against Yokohama Marinos (Japan) at Incheon Soccer Stadium on the same day. Incheon is ranked 3rd in the group with 6 points from 2 wins and 2 losses, following Yokohama (9 points) and Shandong Taishan (9 points). Incheon must win this match against Yokohama to advance to second place in the group. In the first game away to Yokohama on September 19, Incheon won 4-2. The high number of injured is a cause for concern. Except for Hernández, all foreign players (Delbridge, Mugosa, Mpoku, Gerso) are not in good condition, and midfielders such as Shin Jin-ho, Lee Myung-joo, and Moon Ji-hwan are also uncertain of their participation in this game due to injuries. [Yokohama](http://cse.google.ac/url?sa=i&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstotomen.com%2F) also has injuries on the defensive side. Central defender Shinnosuke Hatanaka and right defender Ryuta Koike were unable to play in the first game against Incheon due to serious injuries. Left defender Hijiri Kato, who started against Incheon, and left defender Katsuya Nagato, who came on as a substitute, will also have difficulty playing in this game. Incheon aims to win the game between Korea and Japan at home by using players under the age of 22, such as Park Seung-ho, Park Hyun-bin, Choi Woo-jin, and Hong Si-hoo, who are currently active in the league.
