Pohang Steelers – Beijing Guoan

Wednesday starting at 12:30 in the second game in Group G of the Asian Champions League on steelyard Stadium, Pohang Steelers will meet Beijing Guoan.

Pohang is the only team that has won three times Asian Champions League. In 2007 he triumphed last time in this race after what had done twice in the mid 90s. On the bench of South Koreans Hwang Sun-hong was that player participated in a position to triumphs in the 90s. Pohang Steelers have prepared this winter in Turkey, the South Koreans missing and wait a long season that will be played over 50 matches. Judging by statements Hwang’s team goal is qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Moving from Pohang tomorrow will be his debut on the bench Alexander Stanojevic’s Beijing Guoan. Serbian coach replaced him at the end of last season Jaime Pacheco. Beijing was calficat in the Champions League for the fifth time in six years after finishing in third place in Super League Chinese. It was the sixth podium for Beijing Guoan in the last seven seasons, winning the title in 2009. Even Stanojevic was pleased with how his team has prepared this winter and said that he studied the South Koreans games of last season to see the strengths or the weaknesses.

Given that it is the first game for both teams in 2013 it is hard to give their opinion about this game. We looked over matches made South Koreans in the previous edition of the Champions League and I noticed that most have ended with less than three goals. How on their bench coach is the same we will probably witness a new game with few goals. We must be cautious, however, because the former coach of the team coached by new guests, Dalian Aerbin was the games that have scored the most goals in the previous edition of CSL.
