Sydney FC have won only one of their last 13 AFC Champions League games with six draws and six losses, failing to find the back of the net in more than half of those games (7). They are winless in their last four games at the tournament against South Korean opposition with two draws and two losses. Trent Buhagiar (Sydney FC) has scored five goals across his six career appearances at the AFC Champions League, including one goal against Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in March 2020; Buhagiar has also scored three goals and made two assists in his last four A-League Men games.
This is Jeonbuk Hyundai’s 15th participation in AFC Champions League, having progressed from the group stage in 12 of past 14 participations. They have won the competition twice (2006 & 2016) while no South Korean side have won three or more times since 2003 in current format. Gustavo (8) and Modou Barrow (6) scored 56% (14/25) of Jeonbuk Hyundai’s goals in AFC Champions League last season, only Michael Olunga (9) scored more in the competition; though, nine of their 14 combined goals came in a game against Tampines Rovers who participated in the competition for the first time.
Welcome to Thong Nhat Stadium for the AFC game between Jeonbuk Motors and Sydney FC. The last time these two teams played was back in November 2020, where Jeonbuk had the 1-0 win over the Sky Blues.
