Sydney FC go in search of a first win of their AFC Champions League Group H campaign when they host Shanghai SIPG to Jubilee Stadium on Wednesday.

Sydney FC v Shanghai SIPG kicks off at 7.30pm AEST at Tianhe Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Match Preview


A draw and a loss from the opening two games leaves Sydney FC bottom of Group H heading into the Matchday 3 clash with Shanghai SIPG on Wednesday night.

But the group remains wide-open and Steve Corica's side will go in search of a victory at Jubilee Stadium which would put them firmly in the mix to qualify for the knockout stages.

The Sky Blues held Ulsan Hyundai to a 0-0 in their Group H opener before conceding late to go down 1-0 to Kawasaki Frontale, but are yet to score and will need to find their goalscoring boots.

Sydney did warm up for this home game with a 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory in the Big Blue, a result that keeps them in the hunt for the A-League minor premiership.

Shanghai SIPG made the perfect start to their AFC Champions League campaign with a 1-0 win over Kawasaki, but they sit on three points after going down 1-0 to Ulsan Hyundai most recently.

VĂ­tor Pereira's Shanghai side head Down Under on the back of a 3-2 defeat to Chongqing Dangdai in the Chinese Super League on Friday night as their perfect start to the season came to an end.

Tips


Interestingly, Shanghai SIPG have made three trips to Australia in the AFC Champions League and have lost on each of those occasions. This could be Sydney FC's chance to get their campaign up and running.
