AFC Champions League Previews and Predictions (Wednesday March 1st 2017)
Here are our brief previews for Wednesday evenings AFC Champions League games featuring K League sides as well as head-to-head (H2H) records and predictions;
Adelaide United vs. Jeju United @ 6pm
The first game of the evening takes place in Group H and is between Australian A-League side Adelaide United and surprise package Jeju United. Adelaide United have lost both of their opening ACL games, they’re also having a poor league season as they’re currently bottom. Jeju United were solid all last season and were rewarded with a Champions League spot, they lost a close game 1-0 to Jiangsu Suning, but bounced back to beat Osaka 4-1 in Japan. All former Jeju United Midfielder currently plays for Adelaide.
Head-to-Head / H2H:
They have never played each other before.
1 – 2
It’s not easy traveling to Australia, so Jeju might suffer a little because of that. However overall they should have the edge.
FC Seoul vs. Western Sydney Wanderers @7.30pm
The second game of the evening comes from the Seoul World Cup Stadium and features K League champions FC Seoul and former Champions League champions Western Sydney Wanderers. FC Seoul have had a solid start to the new K League season, however they’ve lost twice so far in the Champions League. Western Sydney have also lost twice in the ACL in the early group stages.
Head-to-Head / H2H:
They played each other four times before in the Champions League. 3 ended in draws, whilst Western Sydney won the other game 2-0 in 2014.
3 – 1
FC Seoul need to win to stand a chance of progressing from the group stages.
