2017 ACL Hopes Fade With 3-2 Loss

Apr 11 2017 10:27 PM | mack in First Team Match Reports

The Western Sydney Wanderers 2017 Asian Champions League campiagn is all but over following a 3-2 loss in Campbelltown tonight.

The clash between the 3rd & 4th placed teams was a goalfest, as both teams needed to win to keep a realistic hope of progression from the group stage.

FC Seoul took the lead in just the 4th minute. After a wide free kick was headed poorly back across the top of the 18 yard box by Shannon Cole, it reached Hwang Ki-Wook who laid off a simple ball into the path of Lee Seok-Hyun, who sent the ball rocketing into the back of the net giving Janjetovic no hope at all.

They doubled their advantage several minutes before the break after Scott Neville was judged to have taken down FC Seoul's Brazilian import Maurinho. The replayed showed the penalty was soft at best, and a clear dive at worst. Dejan Damjanovic took on the responsibility and his perfect penalty nestled into the side netting despite Janjetovic picking the right side.

Damjanovic had his brace in the 71st minute, up against Brendan Hamill the Montenegran international made Hamill look like a schoolboy, turning him inside & out before firing past Janjetovic at the near post.

As time began to run out, the Wanderers put a goal on the board, with Antonis hitting a Jumpei cutback past the keeper for 3-1. Having scored a goal, the Wanderers finally lifted their intensity, but took far too long to get a second on the board.

In the 92nd minute Nico Martinez lifted a cross into the penalty box, finding Lachlan Scott who hit a bullet header into the top corner. Replays indicated he was probably offside, but the goal stood.

With only a minute or two left on the clock, the Wanderers were unable to prevent Seoul keeping the ball down the wrong end of the field, and were unable to put together one last attack.

If the Wanderers are to progress from the group stage with ACL tie-breakers being Head To Head Results before any Goal Difference is applied, they will need to win both their final matches against Urawa and Shanghai, to beat one of those teams by 5 goals and for that team beaten by 5 to lose their other remaining game.

Tepid Draw Kills Home Final Hopes

Apr 08 2017 10:31 PM | mack in First Team Match Reports

A lack of penetration against a 10 man Victory outfit saw the Wanderers take an unhappy point and kill their home final hopes.

The game reached no substantial heights, as the Wanderers stayed well on top of Melbourne Victory, who were reduced to trying to break on the counter. The Wanderers best chances came from Victory mistakes as they played out from the back, but Nichols, Jumpei & Santalab lacked composure in the final third.

Victory were reduced to 10 men early in the second half, as Daniel Georgievski was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence after 53 minutes for a stupid leaping tackle on Scott Neville. Although the defender got a piece of the ball, the tackle was lunge and he took a lot more of Neville than he did of the ball.

The draw means the Wanderers have no chance of hosting a home final. The final round of the season will see if the Wanderers will travel to Brisbane or Melbourne City.

The final game of the season is in Adelaide next weekend.
