AFC Cup Matchday 5 - Preview

AFC Cup  - Group G
Chonburi v Yangon United
Citizen AA v Home United 

Chonburi will seal their place in the knockout phase of the 2012 AFC Cup with victory over Yangon United tomorrow evening. The Sharks were denied a place in the last 16 on Matchday 4 as they succumbed to two stoppage time goals in Mongkok to draw 3-3 with Citizen AA.
The Thai side top Group G with 8 points and are a point clear of Home United in second. Citizen have 4 points while the all but eliminated Yangon Utd prop up the group with 2 points.
In the opening fixture in this group, Chonburi grasped a 93rd minute leveller to cancel out Yangon's first half advantage.
A victory is essential for Chonburi against Yangon United as winning the group will ensure they'll have home advantage for the one off fixture in the last 16. Finishing second would almost certainly result in a tough away fixture to Al Shorta SC. The Syrians are currently the only side in the competition with a 100% record.
