Melbourne Victory host FC Seoul in the AFC Champions League at the Education City Stadium in Doha, Qatar on Thursday. 

A place in the Round of 16 is up for grabs for both sides. Melbourne Victory require a win while a draw remains enough for FC Seoul to progress.

Melbourne Victory Form


Things looked like they were finally turning for the better for Melbourne Victory. They went into half-time in their last match against Chiangrai United 2-0 up after debut goals from new signings Jake Brimmer and Ben Folami. 

Albeit the second half did not go to plan. Their Thai opposition hit back with two second half goals to force a 2-2 draw and saw the Victory miss a golden chance to jump to second place in the group.

This result sees Melbourne Victory winless in their last four AFC Champions League matches. Prior to this, the Victory suffered consecutive defeats to Beijing Guoan (3-1 and 2-0) and now sit third in Group E with one match remaining.

They will need to defeat second placed FC Seoul to progress through to the Round of 16.

Melbourne Victory Team News


Left-back Adama Traore will return to the line-up after serving a one-match suspension. 

Reserve goalkeeper Max Crocombe could also replace first-choice Matt Acton. Acton, who came in for Crocombe in Victory’s last match, was at fault for Chiangrai’s opening goal and could make way for the New Zealander against FC Seoul. 

FC Seoul Form


After a resounding 5-0 win over Chiangrai United, things have turned pear shape for the Korean giants. 

FC Seoul went down 2-1 in the return leg against Chiangrai with their captain Park-chu young missing a crucial second half penalty – which would have given his side the lead. 

This was followed by a 3-1 defeat to group leaders Beijing Guoan, with Beijing goalkeeper Hou Sen making several crucial saves to deny FC Seoul early in the second half. FC Seoul have only won one game in their last six matches.

FC Seoul Team News


FC Seoul head coach Lee-Won jun has rotated his squad in every match so far. He has used both his goalkeepers, with Yu Sang-hun starting in the side’s last two matches. 

Midfielder Han Seung-gyu could be recalled to the starting line-up after he was rested in FC Seoul’s last match.
