Brisbane Roar close out their AFC Champions League 2017 campaign on Wednesday night, hosting Ulsan Hyundai at Brisbane Stadium. Kick-off 8:00pm (QLD time).
This season’s Asian Champions League has proved challenging for the Roar, with Brisbane currently sitting fourth in Group E with four points.
Head Coach John Aloisi expects another tight contest against quality opposition but is confident his side can finish the 2016/17 season with three points.
“Our focus this week has been making sure we finish the season on a high,” said Aloisi.
“We’ve had a long season with some great results.
“We want to finish with a win against what will be a very good Hyundai Ulsan side.”
The Roar cannot qualify for the knockout stage with pride on the line ahead of Wednesday night’s Matchday 6 home clash.
Brisbane suffered a stinging 6-0 loss when the side travelled to Ulsan in late February, and Captain Matt McKay wants the team to leave the competition with one last positive memory.
“We want to end the season in the right way and go into the off-season in a positive frame of mind,” said McKay
“Tomorrow night we are out there to win.
“This game is about gaining respect and proving that Australian football is strong.”
The Roar’s final AFC Champions League 2017 Group Stage match against Korea’s Ulsan Hyundai at Brisbane Stadium kicks-off at 8:00 pm.
