Wanderers ACL group revealed…sort of

-

Yet more matches with Korean giants FC Seoul await Western Sydney in a still developing Asian Champions League group.

The 2014 ACL winners, who are preparing for their third appearance in the competition, are also set for group matches against a still to be determined Japanese side and the winner of an Eastern region play-off after being drawn into Group F.

But it’s the confirmed rematches against FC Seoul that has already made this an eye-catching group.

The red and black first faced the Korean heavyweights in a semi-final tie the year they won the competition with the Wanderers beating Seoul 2-0 on aggregate.

They then squared off twice in the group stages the year after with two draws enough for FC Seoul to progress at the expense of Western Sydney. Though the results favoured the Koreans, it means that after four games played between the pair there have been three draws and one win for the red and black.

Ahead of their fifth match, which will take place in Korea on March 15, Seoul would have only just started their league season on the back of a 2016 in which they were crowned K-League Classic champions and made the quarter-finals of the ACL.

Their Brazilian striker Adriano will undoubtedly be a danger man for Western Sydney, with the number 11 netting ten times from six ACL games in 2016.

In the red and black’s favour is the fact that they will have had months of A-League football to get themselves ready for the encounter, while Seoul could struggle shaking off the cobwebs of pre-season.

With all home games set to be played at Campbelltown Stadium, it will be interesting to see the amount of support the Wanderers can rally behind them in a competition fans can’t help but remember fondly.

Yet to win a home game in the A-League this season, the side simply have to win at least one if not more of their ACL group games at the venue if they’re any hope of progressing.

The good news if that unlike Spotless Stadium which is yet to deliver a win from four games, the red and black have tasted success in all four of their games played at Campbelltown.

Though the crowds and atmosphere will struggle to match Pirtek Stadium, Campbelltown really needs to see Western Sydney rediscover some success at home if they are to progress from what is an already tough and still evolving Group F.
