Preview - Group F: Melbourne Victory (AUS) v Daegu FC (KOR)
Melbourne: Melbourne Victory will kick off their 2019 AFC Champions League Group F campaign against Korea Republic’s Daegu FC at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Tuesday.
The Australian side were eliminated at the group stage last year but remained unbeaten in Melbourne. Indeed, despite having only reached the last 16 once (in 2016), they have not lost in front of home support since the 2011 group stage.
Currently third in the A-League, Melbourne are on a four-game winless run domestically and go into the match on the back of a 2-0 loss to Newcastle Jets at the weekend.
