Shanghai SIPG are in prime position to qualify for the next round after two wins from their opening two games. They also started their league with a convincing 8-0 win over Dalian Yifang where attacking midfielder Oscar got a hattrick. They have been in impeccable form with five wins from their last five games and will be looking to another victory here. Oscar, Hulk and Lu are all fit to play here.
Ulsan started their league with 2-0 defeat to Jeonbuk but turn their attention to an important champions league game away to SIPG. They were knocked out in the group stages last season and they will want to avoid a repeat of that scenario by showing up to this game. They have four points from two games and they will want to at least get a point from this game to keep them in 2nd spot.
SIPG are hot favorites here and should be too strong for the guests but Koreans teams have been strong in this competition and I quite expect Ulsan to be competitive. I expect an open game with lots of goal scoring chances from both teams Both teams getting on the scoresheet in both halves is worth a try at odds of 11.00
