“HAGL caused a big shock, helping SEA football to rise up in the AFC Champions League”

Not many people think HAGL can play so impressively against Jeonbuk, one of the highly-rated teams in this year’s AFC Champions League. Sohu newspaper also has a separate article to praise HAGL.

The Chinese newspaper expressed the opinion: “The fourth round of the AFC Champions League group stage has ended. Chinese teams continue to receive defeats, while a representative of Southeast Asia, Johor Darul Ta’zim (Malaysia) also received a heavy defeat. with the score 0-5.

However, there is still a team holding the glorious flag of Southeast Asian football. They are none other than HAGL with a draw against Jeonbuk.

In the first leg, HAGL lost to Jeonbuk with a score of 0-1. However, in the second leg, they relieved their sadness when they earned a score against this opponent.

HAGL really caused a big shock. As for Jeonbuk, it is undeniable that they are playing poorly.

HAGL’s victory against Jeonbuk really contributed to the rise of Southeast Asian football. Looking at other Southeast Asian teams, they also no longer show fluctuations in the AFC Champions League arena.”

HAGL played explosively against a much higher rated opponent

In this year’s AFC Champions League, a number of Southeast Asian teams still have the opportunity to win tickets to the group stage. Lion City Mariners (Singapore) or Pathum United (Thailand) are typical examples when they both possess impressive scores.

In addition to giving praise to HAGL, Sohu newspaper is also worried about the fate of the Chinese Super League teams: “The rise of Southeast Asian football is not good news for Chinese football. Even in the past two AFC Champions Leagues, Chinese teams only sent young squads to compete.

The Chinese team turned into a laughing stock against Vietnam in the World Cup qualifiers. At present, the Chinese Super League is still facing being surpassed by V.League. That makes Chinese teams’ chances of competing in the AFC Champions League significantly reduced.”
