    Potential Group Of Death Awaits Wanderers In ACL 2015.


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers face a potential Group of Death in Group H of the 2015 Asian Champions League, having been drawn alongside Guangzhou Evergrande of China, and potentially with Urawa Red Diamonds of Japan & FC Seoul of Korea.

     

    The draw took place this evening, with the big talking point for Australian followers being the draw of defending ACL Champions the Western Sydney Wanderers against Guangzhou Evergrande, the team the Wanderers defeated in a spiteful home & away tie on their fairytale run to the final. Evergrande qualified as the 2014 Chinese Super League champions and will be keen to avenge their defeat from last season.

     

    The teams who will contest the play-off for Group H will be FC Seoul who are seeded to the East 1 play-off game, with Ha Noi T&T of Vietnam facing up to Persib Bandung of Indonesia for the right to play the K-League 3rd placed side. The Koreans are no strangers to the Wanderers, having been defeated 2-0 on aggregate last year in the Semi-Final of the competition.

     

    The Japanese team in the group is yet to be confirmed. The Emperor's Cup of 2014 will be contested in a few days time, with J-League winners Gamba Osaka taking on 2nd Division Montedio Yamagata. Should an boilover occur the Wanderers will be joined by Urawa Red Diamonds, the club where Shinji Ono began his professional career. If the expected result comes to fruition then 3rd placed J-League side Kashima Antlers will take the spot, a team

    managed by legendard Brazilian defensive midfielder Toninho Cerezo.

     

    Brisbane Roar are in Group G, with only Suwom Bluewings of Korea confirmed in their group, their Japanese opponents will be either Montedio Yamagata or Urawa. The final spot will be contested via the Qualifier play-offs, between Beijing Guoan, Guangzhou R & F (both of China), Johor Darul Ta'zim of Malaysia and Bengaluru of India.

     

    The Central Coast Mariners are the final Australian team involved. They will play a do or die qualifying play-off on the 17th of February against either Bankgok Glass of Thailand, Yadanarbon of Burma or the Warriors of Singapore. If victorious the will enter Group F along with Gamba Osaka, Seongnam & Buriram United.

     

    The final group comprises of Jeonbuk Hyundai, Shandong Luneng, Binh Duong & the winner of qualifying play-off #2.

    Unlikely to be very cold when we play them. They would certainly play in a hell of a lot colder in China.

    haha **** them! It's highly amusing that no matter which 15mil players they buy..they still got their arses knocked out by "little" western sydney with local junior products who represented their communities. That is forever in history! No amount changes this.

    Purely for the money because i can't see anything else special about the league. In fact i'd never even heard of it until we got drawn to play those grubs last year. The J-LEague and K-league are different and well known.

    I actually fear this, what if they figure us out like the A League clubs have and just put together a decent side made up of decent players from around the country and play us fairly. We'd be farked

    Just remember our own ineptude has cost us in the aleague. No opposition has played us off the park fairly and at us being full strength. The losses weve had and to an extent draws could have been wins.

    Interesting to note that a player who was is currently part of the Brazilian team setup has signed in China. In that article claims he was recalled by Dunga recently

     

    If China keep offering the money they do and they are going to continue to attract some serious talent which can only strengthen their league and NT

    Chelsea, City and PSG have bought the best of next gen Brazillians then given them bugger all game time. Moura is getting a run now that Lavezzi and Cavani acting up, Oscar and Wilian are way down the pecking order and Fernandinho is at a club that bought Bony for lols. So Dunga has to pick whoever is getting game time elsewhere, Coutinho got a run FFS

    Oscar and Willan play every 3 out of 5 games for Chelsea, one of the few positions Mourinho actually rotates
