Hello & welcome to FOX Sports Asia’s LIVE blog of the AFC Champions League 2019 Group F encounter between Guangzhou Evergrande and Melbourne Victory.
The A-league side have struggled in the tournament so far with both their group stage encounters, against Daegu FC and Sanfrecce Hiroshima, finishing in defeats. And tonight’s encounter against Guangzhou at the Tianhe Stadium will be as stern a test if not tougher.
On the other hand, the Chinese Super League managed side managed to win one of their first two group stage matches. Though they started in style with a 2-0 win over Sanfrecce Hiroshima at home, they were pegged back by Daegu in Korea Republic.
With Melbourne at fourth and Guangzhou at the second spot in the group, tonight’s encounter is much more crucial for the Australian side to notch up their first points of the tournament.
