Daegu to add to Melbourne’s Champions League woes

    Daegu to add to Melbourne’s Champions League woes

    On Wednesday morning, Daegu host Melbourne Victory in a vital clash in the Asian Champions League Group F.

    The home side are in need of a victory in their quest to qualify for the next stage of the competition. The team from South Korea are currently third place in the table, a point behind second-place Guangzhou and three behind leaders Sanfreece.

    Daegu head into this clash on the back of a run of four wins from their last five games in all competitions. However, the side has lost their last two games in this competition against group leaders Sanfreece Hiroshima. Prior to the two defeats, Daegu had won their opening two group matches, including the reverse fixture.

    The home side has a mixed recent home record in the Champions League, winning one and losing one of their two matches on home soil in the competition.

    Melbourne Victory are three games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded two victories in the process. However, the Australian side has struggled for results in the Champions League this season, suffering three defeats and picking up just one draw.

    In fact, the visitors have won just once in their last six Champions League matches, suffering four defeats in the process dating back to last season. Kevin Muscat’s side drew 1-1 with Guangzhou last time out in the competition, ending a three-game losing run for the visitors.

    The Australian team have also conceded at least twice in three of their last four Champions League games.

    Melbourne Victory have failed to win in 21 away games in the Champions League, since making their debut in the competition back in 2008. The visitors have lost their last three away games in the Champions League while conceding at less twice in their last seven matches on their travels.

    Forebet predicts that Daegu will add to Melbourne Victory’s recent Champions League woes by recording a victory in a high-scoring clash.
