After 2 matches, Sydney FC is still without a win. In the opening match, Sydney FC also drew 0-0 against Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
“We should have had six points from the last two games, instead of two. I’m very disappointed, but that’s normal in football. 4 games left, Sydney FC must make a difference“, coach Corica further assessed.
All 3 goals conceded by HAGL from the beginning of the tournament came from hanging balls, including 2 goals against Yokohama F. Marinos and 1 goal against Sydney FC. According to Coach Corica, the Australian representative has carefully studied this weakness of HAGL to have a plan to exploit.
“We analyzed HAGL, and approached by trying to impose the game. HAGL also plays a variety of football, with diverse ups and downs. For our part, we also have many options to shoot from long distances to send the ball to the opponent to change direction. Overall, this is a good game for Sydney FC“, coach Corica shared.
In the third and fourth matches, Sydney FC will face Yokohama F. Marinos, and HAGL will meet Jeonbuk. These are two key matches that will decide the fate of the two teams in Group H.
