Having already progressed through to the next round, Ulsan boss Kim Do-hoon made ten changes to the starting line-up. 

Reserve goalkeeper Ju-Hwan Seo made his debut for the club but will be replaced by first choice Jo So-huk. 

Brazilian forward Junior Negrao will also be among the many stars returning into the starting line-up after he was rested last time out.

Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory defied the odds to become the first Australian side since 2016 to qualify for the AFC Champions League Round of 16. 

They defeated FC Seoul 2-1 to seal their place in the next round. New Zealand winger Marco Rojas opened the scoring in the fifth minute before new signing Jake Brimmer slotted home a penalty in the 23rd. 

The Victory were forced to defend and hang on for dear life as FC Seoul pulled one back midway through the second half. This win ended a four-match winless streak for the club.

The Victory head into this match two games unbeaten. Prior to their win they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Thai champions Chiangrai United.

Melbourne Victory Team News


Melbourne Victory striker Robbie Kruse will again be rested as he recovers from recurring knee injury.

Head coach Grant Brebner has utilised both his goalkeepers throughout the tournament. New Zealander Max Crocombe started in the last match, though it is expected Matt Acton will be the side’s first choice during the A-League season and could start in the first leg. 

Forward Marco Rojas started out wide in the last match but could be used more as a striker, in place of midfielder Jacob Butterfield, to inject some pace up front.
