We need to be more clinical, says Johor Darul Ta'zim's Mora
Iskandar Puteri: Johor Darul Ta’zim head coach Benjamin Mora called on his team to sharpen up their finishing skills after a 2-1 win over Suwon Samsung Bluewings on Tuesday gave the Malaysian champions their first win in the 2020 AFC Champions League.
Brazilian defender Mauricio headed home the winner 17 minutes from time for the Southern Tigers after Gonzalo Cabrera had seen his first-half penalty cancelled out by Terry Antonis’ equaliser for the club from Korea Republic.
The win means JDT move into second place in Group G, three points behind leaders Vissel Kobe from Japan, who won their opening games against Suwon and JDT last month, and Mora is looking for improvements from his players despite picking up the victory.
Sydney: Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors midfielder Kim Bo-kyung has admitted that the Korean champions will need to be wary of Sydney FC frontman Adam Le Fondre when the former Cardiff City teammates face each other in Group H of the 2020 AFC Champions League on Wednesday.
Kim and Englishman Le Fondre were at Cardiff together in the 2014-15 season when the Welsh club were in England's Championship, with the former moving to Japan at the end of the campaign and the latter playing for several clubs in his homeland before joining Sydney in 2018.
Le Fondre has since achieved considerable success in Australia, where he won the A-League Grand Final last year, while he also currently leads the scoring charts in the 2019-20 season.
