Sydney FC face Ulsan on Wednesday night

Sydney FC launch their Asian Champions League campaign on Wednesday night when they take on K-League side Ulsan Hyundai FC.

Sydney vs Ulsan kicks off at Jubilee Oval at 8.00pm AEST. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Match Preview


Sydney FC look to get their Asian Champions League campaign off to a winning start when they play host to South Korean team Ulsan Hyundai on Wednesday night.

After failing to make it out of the group stage of last season’s continental tournament, Sydney will be determined to bag all three points and give themselves an immediate springboard this time around.

Steve Corica’s side are starting to round back into form in the A-League after a difficult few weeks, posting back-to-back wins over fellow top six sides Wellington and Adelaide to surge into second spot in the ladder.

Iranian star Reza Ghoochannejhad will be confident after claiming his first goal for Sydney in the win over Adelaide last week.

Ulsan were the 2012 Asian champions and have reached the knockout stage on three occasions - however, they were forced to qualify for this season’s tournament after finishing third in the K-League.

That could prove a blessing in disguise as they will have matches under their belt - while they also bring winning form into this contest from the weekend, prevailing 2-1 over Suwon Bluewings in their K-League opener.

Boasting former Cardiff City midfielder Kim Bo-Hyung and a whole host of Korean internationals, including Yun Young-Sun, who represented the country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Ulsan are a classy outfit who will prove tough to break down.

Despite their back-to-back wins in the A-League, I don’t think Sydney have been playing very well this season - certainly not as good as previous years. The Sky Blues might find their opponents a class above on Wednesday night.
