Ulsan Hyundai take on Vissel Kobe in the AFC Champions League semi-finals in Qatar on Sunday. Ulsan Hyundai have been on fire in front of goals, can they reach the final against a Vissel Kobe side without Andres Iniesta?

Ulsan Hyundai Form


Ulsan Hyundai have cruised into the AFC Champions League semi-finals. The Korean giants have won all seven matches in the tournament so far. 

After scoring 14 goals across their six group stage matches, Ulsan continued their dominance in the knock-out stages with a 3-0 win over Melbourne Victory. 

A 2-0 win over Beijing Guoan saw them reach the semi-finals with Brazilian striker Junior Negrao scoring a first half brace. Ulsan have been the highest scoring side in the competition this season with 19 goals from their seven matches.

Midfielder Shin Jin-Ho was used as a 70th minute substitute against Beijing Guoan after he was feared to miss the match with a knee injury. He came away unscathed from those 20 minutes and will be in contention to start for this semi-final. 

Ulsan’s only confirmed injury is winger Jung Hoon-sun, who was sent home last week with a broken ankle.

Vissel Kobe Form


Vissel Kobe scraped through to the semi-finals in dramatic fashion after defeating Suwon Bluewings on penalties. 

Despite Suwon opening the scoring in the seventh minute, a red card to defender Kim Tae-hwan opened the door for Vissel Kobe. The Japanese side took full advantage and levelled the tie through winger Kyogo Furuhashi in the 40th minute. 

The two sides could not be separated after extra time, forcing the match to go to penalties. Vissel Kobe would came out on top 7-6 in the shoot-out.

Vissel Kobe Team News


Vissel Kobe are likely to be without star midfielder Andres Iniesta. The World Cup winner came off the bench in extra time and appeared to hurt himself taking a penalty in the shootout. He will be a huge loss for the Japanese club.
