Shanghai SIPG can seal qualification for the knockout stages of the AFC Champions League with victory over Sydney FC at Al Janoub Stadium on Tuesday. The Sky Blues' competition is over, while victory for Shanghai would ensure their progression to the last 16.

Shanghai SIPG Form


Three wins from four games have Shanghai SIPG standing on the verge of a place in the knockout stages of the 2020 AFC Champions League.

Vitor Pereira's side were 2-1 winners over Sydney in their opening game. They came from a goal down to win 2-1 thanks to a second half double from Li Shenglong.

Goals from Lu Wenjun and a Hulk penalty sealed a 2-1 win over Jeonbuk Motors, before Shanghai were beaten 1-0 by Yokohama F. Marinos as the J-League side struck a last minute winner. 

The Chinese Super League side made amends three days later with a 2-1 win over Yokohama in the reverse fixture. Cai Huikang got the opener and Ricardo Lopes proved to be the matchwinner.

Vitor Pereira is likely to continue to shuffle his pack again. Midfielders Oscar and Aaron Mooy and forward Li Shenglong were on the bench in the last game and could start. 

Hulk was rested in the latest win, but is expected to return.

Sydney FC Form


Steve Corica's Sydney FC have no chance of qualification after collecting a single point from four games.

The Sky Blues lost 4-0 to Yokohama F Marinos in Japan before holding Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors to a 2-2 draw in Sydney prior to coronavirus halting the AFC Champions League.

In the Qatar for this stretch of games, Sydney lost 2-1 to Shanghai SIPG despite Trent Buhagiar giving the Sky Blues an eighth minute lead. Qualification hopes were then dashed after a 1-0 defeat to Jeonbuk Motors last Wednesday.

Sydney FC Team News


Goalkeeper Thomas Heward-Belle is available again after a one-match suspension following his sending off against Shanghai SIPG.

Steve Corica may opt for changes with no chance of qualification. Full-back Joel King and midfielder Anthony Caceres are two who could come into the starting line-up.

Shanghai SIPG vs Sydney FC Head to Head

These two sides met during the 2019 AFC Champions League group stages. It was two draws as Sydney FC drew 3-3 in Shanghai before another entertaining 2-2 draw was played out in Sydney.
