The Central Coast Mariners  will be determined to put the disappointment of missing out on Sunday’s A-League Grand Final behind them when they travel to Korea to face Seongham Ilhwa FC  in the AFC Champions League. Following their heartbreaking penalty shootout loss to Perth Glory on the weekend, Graham Arnold’s side will be solely focused on a good campaign in Asia. Having drawn all three of the matches in the competition so far, the Mariners are in joint second in Group G, two points behind leaders Nagoya Campus but a win could see them assume top spot. When these sides met at Bluetongue Stadium a fortnight ago, the match ended 1-1 .

Despite finishing second last in a disappointing A-League season, Adelaide United  has excelled in the Champions League and find themselves joint top of Group E with two wins and a loss from their three fixtures in the competition. Their only loss was at the hands of the Pohang Steelers , who they reoppose at Hindmarsh Stadium on Wednesday night.
