Adelaide United v Jiangsu Suning AFC Champions League Tips and Predictions - Reds bid to secure knockout stage spot

Adelaide United head into their final Group H game with a place in the AFC Champions League Round of 16 in their sights - although Guillermo Amor's side need help from elsewhere to aid their cause.

Adelaide United kept their qualification hopes alive on Matchday 5 when Baba Diawara’s late header salvage a 3-3 draw against Gamba Osaka.

That result leaves the Reds with a fighting chance of qualifying ahead of the final game showdown with group leaders and the already-qualified Jiangsu Suning at Coopers Stadium on Tuesday night.

The scenario is simple for Guillermo Amor's side. They must defeat Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu and hope that Jeju United do not defeat Gamba Osaka in the other game. A draw is not enough for Adelaide, while a Jeju victory would also end their hopes of making the last 16.

Jiangsu have dominated the group, securing qualification after victories in their first four games. They did suffer a defeat to Jeju on Matchday 5, giving Adelaide hope that they can cause an upset an finish in second spot in Group H.

The Chinese side, who sit bottom of the Super League following a 1-1 draw on Friday, will be without the suspended Ramires and Tao Yuan for the trip to Australia. 

Adelaide, meanwhile, will be boosted by the return of Dylan McGowan, Taylor Regan and Riley McGree after all three sat out the draw with Gamba Osaka through suspension. They will, however, be without banned Jordan O'Doherty.
