Seongnam Ilhwa coach Shin confident of win over Beijing Guoan

The coach of Korean club Seongnam Ilhwa, Shin Tae-young, is confident his team can over Chinese champions Beijing Guoan tonight.

The two clubs meet on Match Day 4 of the Asian Champions League at Beijing's Workers' Stadium and Shin believes the Pegasus can back up their 3-1 home win last week against Guoan and get a positive result tonight.

"We are here to seek three points and to edge closer to our goal of finishing number one in the group," he said.

"Hopefully, we will be able to secure a place in the round of last 16 after this match. We won't be conservative in the away game. We will focus on attack.

"I think my players are in good form now and that's what we need before this crucial match. I have confidence in them.

"The hard victory at home proved that we have to gear up to chase the best result," he added.

"Obviously, Beijing will beef up their offence to pose a bigger threat to us."
