Shanghai SIPG FC vs Jeonbuk FC
AFC Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Shanghai Stadium (Shanghai).
Shanghai had to wait until the very last match of the group stage to confirm their participation in the knockouts, and they were given some serious competition in that regards by Kawasaki. The team could find pride in their goal-scoring exploits and would hope for their form in front of the goal to continue, which will give them an edge in the return leg of this tie.
Jeonbuk maybe on the road for this game, but they sure do have the confidence to go at it without fear. The team is on a winning streak, and they have delivered a huge loss in the past to this opponent, in this same competition.
Jeonbuk lost just a single tie in the group stage, and ironically the toppers lost against Buriram, who had finished at the bottom of the table.
