Surprise package Muangthong United can progress to the last 16 of the AFC Champions League and potentially dump Brisbane Roar out when the sides meet in Group E on Wednesday night.

Brisbane Roar head to Thailand to face Muangthong United knowing a victory is need to keep themselves in the hunt for a place in the round of 16.

A 2-1 victory over Kashima Antlers in the last game in Group E has breathed life into Roar's hopes of progression, but they realistically need another one from Wednesday's trip to face Muangthong.

Muangthong have been the surprise package of the group, topping the standings with eight points from four games which included a 0-0 draw in Brisbane in the reverse fixture back in February. 
Victory for the Thailand Premier League champions on Wednesday would guarantee them a place in the knockout stages. A point could also be good enough depending on other results.

Roar, on the other hand, are bottom with four points and defeat in Thailand coupled with a point or better for Kashima in their meeting with Ulsan Hyundai would eliminate Brisbane with a game still remaining.

Brisbane will be wary of Muangthong's playmaker Chanathip Songkrasin and goalscorer Teerasil Dangda but the hosts are without another key midfielder with Sarach Yooyen ruled out through injury.

And coach John Aloisi has something of a headache with a huge A-League semi-final in store for his side on Sunday when they take on Melbourne Victory. Will he sacrifice AFC Champions League hopes in favour of that game?
