Busan did give it their all and came close on a couple of occasions but for all their attacking play they were pretty limited in terms of chances. There was one moment at the end of the 1st half when they hit the post which might have changed the outcome of the tie but in the end Ulsan saw the game out comfortably and lifted their first trophy since winning the ACL in 2012 . This was actually their first domestic silverware since winning the league away back in 2005 and it’s been a long wait for the Horang-i. They will have a lot more time to prepare for next year’s ACL than this year’s and will need that time as they were paired with Kawasaki Frontale, Melbourne Victory and more than likely Shanghai SIPG
