Preview - Group G: Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC (KOR) v Buriram United (THA)
Jeonju: Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Buriram United will round off their 2019 AFC Champions League Group G campaigns when they meet at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Tuesday.
Two-time champions Jeonbuk have already confirmed their place in the last 16 as group winners while Buriram’s chances of reaching the knockout rounds were ended following a 2-1 defeat to Urawa Red Diamonds two weeks ago.
But hosts Jeonbuk, who beat Beijing FC 1-0 a fortnight ago to seal their progression and have won four of their five games, will be looking for revenge after suffering a 1-0 defeat in Buriram on Matchday Two.

The visitors are well rested ahead of their final game in the 2019 tournament, having not played at the weekend, but are without Pedro Juinior after the Brazilian picked up his second booking of the group stage in the loss to Urawa.
