Beijing Guoan vs Melbourne Victory – AFC Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group E Match Day 3 encounter, with Beijing Guoan taking on Melbourne Victory on Tuesday the 24th of November, 2020, at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, in Qatar.

Beijing Guoan beat Seoul 2-1 on Saturday, making a massive step towards finishing in the group’s top two. They are leading, on six points from two games. Seoul and Melbourne Victory are on three points each, so if the Chinese side makes it three out of three, they will be super close to qualifying for the next round. Their current form reads; WDWLD. Coach Bruno Génésio played a 4-3-2-1 formation against Seoul, with Zhang Yuning and Alan up front, and Renato Augusto behind them. The third Brazilian of the… gang, Fernando, was the one who opened the scoring in the 8th minute, with Zhang Yuning getting credited with the assist. Alan made it 0-2 in the 60th minute, with Renato Augusto getting the assist. Beijing Guoan conceded soon after that from the penalty spot, but all in all they were better than Seoul, and rather fairly earned all three points. Be reminded, the CSL side is without Cédric Bakambu in Qatar, but as they showed on Saturday, the very least they are capable of is qualifying for the knock-out stages.

Depending on your point of view, you could call the coaches of all Australian teams competing in the AFC CL group stage either “totally realistic”, or “100% nonsensical”. All three, including Melbourne Victory’s Grant Brebner (he will be making his official debut in this game), pretty much called the games in Qatar an awesome opportunity to prepare themselves for the upcoming A-League season(!). Sure, roster-wise they are nowhere near teams from China, Japan, Korea, but… this is the group stage of the biggest competition in Asia, at club level, playing at this stage should be the highlight of a team’s season, and yet, the Aussies look perfectly fine “using” these games in Qatar as… “official practice matches” to start finding rhythm ahead of the A-League season… Melbourne Victory’s current form reads; LWLLL. They haven’t played since August 12, when they lost 2-1 to Western Sydney Wanderers, on the last day of regular season in Australia’s championship. Coach Brebner does not have Robbie Kruse available, he stayed back home to fully recover from his last injury. The Melbourne side are on three points from two matches in this group, having beaten Chiangrai United 1-0 at home, and lost 1-0 in Seoul.

Beijing Guoan and Melbourne Victory have met twice before, they faced each other in the AFC Champions League group stage back in 2010; the Chinese side won 1-0 at home, while the game in Melbourne ended in a goalless draw.

Any other result but a Beijing Guoan win would be a big-big surprise.

A 2-0 victory for Beijing Guoan is predicted at full-time.

Date: Tuesday, 24th of October, 2020.

Venue: Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium

Kick-off time: 11:00 (GMT+2).
