Sydney FC and Melbourne City take on Asia’s best

Sydney FC and Melbourne City were greeted with an intense April schedule as they headed to Vietnam and Thailand respectively for their AFC Champions League campaigns.

A grueling schedule saw both teams play all their group stage matches in just over a fortnight with an average of three days rest between each fixture.

Melbourne City had to navigate their way through a group that featured Thai side BG Pathum, South Korean club, Jeonnam Dragons and Filipino team, United City.

Meanwhile, for Sydney FC it was a case of déjà vu as they were dealt an almost identical group from their last ACL foray as they came up against Jeonbuk, Yokohama F. Marinos and Vietnamese debutants, Hoang Anh Gia Lai.
