Western Sydney Wanderers v FC Seoul


Pirtek Stadium

Wednesday October 1 –   7:30pm (AEST)




Western Sydney  host FC Seoul  in the defining second leg of their ACL Semi-Final tie.

After playing out a goalless stalemate a fortnight ago, the Wanderers have jumped into favouritism to progress into the ACL Final. Tony Popovic’s men survived an onslaught from the South Koreans to escape with a clean sheet, and they can make history by becoming just the second Australian side to make it to a Final in the competition in front of their own fans. Western Sydney receive the services of young striker Tomi Juric after serving a one-match ban last time out, and he’s well in commission to grab the first goal at .

FC Seoul are having a forgettable season in the K-League, however all that could be relinquished with a maiden continental championship triumph. Manager Choi Yong-soo would have been disappointed his side couldn’t find a breakthrough at Sangnam Stadium in the first tie, however they’re certainly capable of downing the Wanderers at Pirtek Stadium on Wednesday night. Colombian playmaker Molina Uribe only played the second half of the first leg, however he’s likely to play a full 90 minutes this time around after an impressive performance.

Home ground advantage means the Wanderers hold slight favouritism heading into the second tie, however FC Seoul are a good chance of upsetting the Aussies. One punter thinks Wednesday will be a repeat performance of the first tie, laying $625 on the 0-0 draw .
