Pohang Steelers v Beijing Guoan Football Match – 27.02.2013 – AFC Champions League Match Preview
Pohang Steelers v Beijing Guoan football match will be in 27.02.2013 at Pohang, South Korea for AFC Champions League match. Pohang Steelers is one of the most famous Korean teams in Asia. They have won AFC Champions League title for three times and they gt 3rd place in FIFA Club Championship once. However they have disappointed their fans and they couldn’t promote from group stages last year. I believe they will play quarter-final in this tournament at the least. Their players are generally Korean in Pohang Steelers squad. Ianis Zicu, Derek Asamoah and Hwa-Yong Shin are the most valuable players of Pohang Steelers and they will be in squad against Beijing Guoan. Pohang Steelers got only one lose at home in AFC Champions League last year and it was against Bunyodkor. They have won rest matches at home.
Beijing Guoan has a few quality footballers in their squad and they may do surprises in tournament this season. They haven’t got any success at international base yet. If they can’t reach to success in this year, I believe they will never get it in the future. Beijing Guoan got 1 draw and 2 loses at away matches in AFC Champion League last year. They have a few good players in their squad but I can’t call all of team is very good. Especially they are very weak at defensive side. They have important players like Andre Lima, Frederic Kanoute, Joffre Guerron and Darko Matic.
Match Prediction: I am sure we will watch more than 2,5 goals in this match
