2005 AFC Champions League

Postby ROKfootball » Wed Apr 06, 2005 11:53 pm

Suwon Samsung Bluewings (as K-League champions) and Busan I'Park (as FA Cup holders) are competing in AFC Champions League competition this season.

How will the group stages go? Which club will fare better?

Busan through (probably)

Postby Holyjoe » Thu Apr 07, 2005 9:51 pm

Surely they can't screw it up in what's turned out to be a rather easy group, still to concede a goal in their three games so far (think they're at 14-0 in terms of goal difference).

Suwon... not so good as it's probably going to go right down to the last match in China to decide who goes through thanks to the bloody hopeless finishing in Suwon against Shenzhen :evil:

But things may get a little easier if Suwon beat Jubilo at home AND Jubilo beat Shenzhen at home. Getting a brace of goals against that 'other team' (sorry, forgot the name :)) will be a must though, I think.

Yeah, Shenzhen beating Jubilo was a bit of a surprise result so if Jubilo don't do anything stupid at home then Suwon will be looking good.

I wonder if there are any plans to expand the ACL to having two teams qualify from each group to a last 16? (maybe not...)

Suwon is the team to beat in Korea... and perhaps Asia.
Apologies for my extremely large avatar but come on, she is HOT, man.

Suwon 2-1 Jubilo Iwata
Persebaya Surabaya 0-3 Busan

Kim Nam-il and Sandro scored the goals for Suwon, and Nadson got sent off along with a Jubilo defender just before half-time.

Busan are practically guaranteed to be in the quarter-finals, six points ahead with two games to play. It's also now between Shenzhen and Suwon for the final spot, so Suwon could do with banging in a few goals against the Vietnamese side in their next game to push their goal difference up.

Shenzhen 10 (+8)
Suwon 10 (+6)
Jubilo 3
Hoang Anh 0

No such luck unfortunately, the missus won't let me.

I would have loved to have gone on the trip to Vietnam for the game against Hoang Anh Gia Lai :cry:

Well that's Busan through with a 4-0 win away against Binh Dinh.

Suwon are all but through after beating Hoang Anh Gia Lai 6-0 at home because Jubilo thumped Shenzhen 3-0 and Suwon are three points ahead with one game to play against Shenzhen.

If Suwon avoid defeat then they're through, but if Shenzhen win the game then they're through.

Shenzhen v Suwon

Postby Holyjoe » Sat May 21, 2005 3:11 pm

Latest news is that Lee Woon-jae, Kim Doo-hyun, Kwak Hee-ju and Kim Dae-eui will all be allowed to leave the national team training camp and play in this final AFC Champions League group game so that's good.
