How Qualified, Participation & Best historical finish:

Ulsan Hyundai - Won Asian Champions League & Never qualified before.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima - Winners of host nation's league & Never qualified before.

Current League statistics:

Ulsan Hyundai (5th) P44 W18 D14 L12 Pts 68 GF60 GA52 GD+8 Average goals per game: 2.55

Sanfrecce Hiroshima P34 W19 D7 L8 Pts 64 GF63 GA34 GD+29 Average goals per game: 2.85


Sanfrecce are playing for the 1st time in any continental finals after winning their maiden title last week in J- League. The team from Hiroshima are reknowned in Japan for their amazing production line of talent. Indeed the vast majority of the squad have been promoted from the youth setup.With only three foreign players within the squad this really is a Japanese sucess story. The team plays exciting attacking football, with the superb Hisato Sato regularly ending the moves with his clinical finishing. The Japanese international scoring 26 in 39 this season. Other players to watch out for are the veteran Morisaki twins. Both products of the youth setup and SanFre legends. So far in the tournament Hiroshima have defeated Auckland in a heavily one sided game, last match was a 2-1 defeat to African giants Al Ahly. In a game beset by injuries Hiroshima lost key man goalkeeper Shusaku Nishikawa and had to replace him with a player without an appearance for almost a year. Hiroshima started brightly but could not cope with the intensity of the Egyptians.

Ulsan Hyundai are current Asian Champions League holders. The South Korean side went through the entire qualifying unbeaten such was their strength this year. Perhaps more impressive was their supreme attacking mentality, which was highlighted in the knockout stage of the Champions League, when they won all six matches to claim Asian dominance. However they could not quite cope with playing in the league and in continental competition and sit in a dissappointing 5th position in the top section. The Koreans have been national champions twice in their history but the last victory was in 2005. Ulsan faced off against Central American champions Monterrey and were totally outclassed. The Mexican giants dominated the match for long periods and lay seige to the Ulsan goal. Ulsan were undone by a far superior team and will try and regain some honour in the 5th place match.


Ulsan Hyundai 3.40 (Stanjames) is the selection. This game is a dead rubber but there is still plenty to play for. A huge game for both teams with local pride at stake. There is also the extra half a million dollars in prize money to play for too. Both sides were dissappointing in the quarter finals with neither giving a good account of themselves. I feel the freshness of Ulsan will be telling here as Hiroshima have already played twice in just three days. Sanfrecce are two short here in what is ultimately an exhibition game now.

Ulsan Hyundai are selected here at +0.5 (1.74 188bet) This game is much closer than the odds suggest and Ulsan are overpriced for sure. Getting 1.74 for them and the draw is a large value bet.  Both sides are out now and this is a 5th place playoff. Plenty of pride and a few dollars still to play for and I think Ulsan will come out on top here.

Over 2.50 1.80 (Unibet) is a cracking bet here. These positional playoff games tend to be free scoring and we are happy to go over. With very little to play for games are attacking encounters and this looks to be no different. Nice local derby too, Sanfrecce should have really gone over 2.5 themselves against Auckland, against Al Ahly they looked poor defensively and with a rooky goalkeeper they could concede a few again. In their only game so far Ulsan conceded three times but such was the quality of the Mexican play most sides would have been beaten. Ulsan attacked well in patches and should have more success against Hiroshima.
