A real buzz is expected in and around Tianhe Stadium on Wednesday when Guangzhou Evergrande and Daegu will lock horns in the direct clash for a place in the last 16 round of the AFC Champions League. The visitors currently hold the second position in the Group F standings, but are only two points above third-placed Guangzhou and a potential defeat in the last round fixture in South China would eliminate them.
Both sides will head into the tie high on confidence following their respective wins at the weekend. Bothof Fabio Cannavaro’s stars were on target in Friday’s 2-3 win away at Wuhan Zall (Paulinho and Talisca).
The former Besiktas winger (Talisca) is definitely one of the best players in Asia at the moment. He is enjoying a spectacular season with seven goals in eight appearances in CSL. He also added four goals in five group stage matches in the AFC Champions League.
Can Talisca guide his team towards success in the most important game of the season?
