Urawa Reds vs Western Sydney Wanderers AFC Champions League Tips and Predictions - Must-win game for Wanderers

Gary Emmerson 25 Apr 2017
  • Western Sydney Wanderers are six points adrift of Urawa Reds with only six points to play for
  • Urawa Reds need a point from their final two games to qualify
  • The J-League side won 4-0 when the two sides met in Sydney in the reverse fixture
Western Sydney Wanderers and the Urawa Red Diamonds meet on Wednesday

Western Sydney Wanderers head to Japan to face Urawa Reds knowing nothing short of victory is required to keep their slim hopes of qualifying from AFC Champions League Group F alive.

Former champions Western Sydney Wanderers need a minor miracle if they are to reach the round of 16 in the AFC Champions League and must start it with victory over Urawa Reds.

Tony Popovic's side are bottom of Group F and trail second placed Urawa by six points with two games remaining. They must win both and hope other results go their way - a tall ask.

The equation is a lot simpler for the Reds, who need one point from their remaining two games to be assured of a place in the last 16.

The 4-0 victory for Urawa when the sides met in Sydney back in February underlines the task in hand for the Wanderers as they travel to face the current J-League leaders.

Western Sydney must also bounce back from their Friday night defeat to Brisbane Roar as they exited the A-League finals on penalties after an energy-sapping Elimination Final.

Can they muster up more reserves to take the fight to Urawa and keep their continental hopes alive? It's a tough call for Popovic's side but they will take the positives from their last trip when they defeated FC Seoul in South Korea when previously pointless in the group.
