The Central Coast Mariners will be looking to get their first win in the 2012 AFC Champions League when they host Japanese club Nagoya Campus at Central Coast Stadium tonight. Graham Arnold’s team opened their campaign with a 0-0 draw against Tianjin Teda in China a fortnight ago, but go into this clash off the back of a 1-0 win over Adelaide United in the A-League on Saturday.
Nagoya collected a draw in the opening game of their Champions League campaign after being held 2-2 at home to Seongnam Ilhwa FC. Socceroo striker Josh Kennedy was on the scoresheet in that match and is a real dangerman for the visitors, having been the leading scorer in the J-League in consecutive seasons.
