Viettel FC to clash against defending AFC Champions League winners

VOV.VN - Vietnam’s V.League champions Viettel FC will take on defending AFC Champions League winners Ulsan Hyundai FC of the Republic of Korea at the upcoming AFC Champions League following a draw by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

Both teams are in Group F alongside BG Pathum United FC of Thailand and another team that will win a play-off match to be decided later by the AFC.

It would be considered a tricky group for the Vietnamese side, as head coach Truong Viet Hoang is set to lead them into the regional tournament for the first time.

A total of 40 teams will compete for the AFC Champions League, with sides divided into Eastern Asian and Western Asian zones.

Each zone will include five groups, and the five top teams together with three second-placed teams will progress through to the competition’s knock-out stage.

As current V.League 1 champions, Viettel FC will compete in the group stage of the AFC Champions League 2021 between April 21 to May 7. They will play all of their three matches in the same location at a neutral venue due measures aimed at preventing the potential spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
