Preview: Match Day 5 v Ulsan Hyundai


Melbourne Victory travels to Korea for a crucial AFC Champions League match against Ulsan Hyundai.


Victory is third in Group F on five points after defeating J1 League champions Kawasaki Frontale 1-0  in Melbourne on Match Day 4.

That win kept Victory’s hopes of progressing to the Round of 16 alive, with the winner of Wednesday’s match guaranteed a spot in the knockout stages

Victory will be without defender Rhys Williams, who picked up his second yellow card of the group stage.

Melbourne heads to Korea on the back of a 3-1 win over Western Sydney in the Hyundai A-League, while Ulsan suffered a 2-1 defeat to Pohang Steelers in K League 1 action.
