Champions held, Ulsan win as Classic opens
Defending champions FC Seoul twice failed to hold onto a lead as they were forced to settle for a 2-2 home draw against Pohang Steelers in their opening match of the new K League Classic season.
Goals from Dejan Damjanovic and Sergio Escudero twice put Seoul in front but Pohang hit back both times through Shin Jinho and Lee Myungjoo to salvage a draw.
Ulsan Hyundai, who finished fourth last season, started their new campaign with a dramatic comeback win over Daegu. Song Hanbok's fourth-minute strike looked set to earn visitors Daegu all three points but Ulsan netted twice in the final minutes to snatch victory, Kim Chigon equalising in the 89th minute before Kim Shinwook struck a last-gasp winner.
In today's other game Jeju United beat Chunnam Dragons 1-0 thanks to a 28th-minute goal from Brazilian Junior Santos.
