The hosts to win
PG Pathum are the hosts of the 2021 AFC Champions League and, therefore, should bank on that advantage to get the victory against debutants Kaya-Iloilo. For Kaya-Iloilo, this fixture could redefine their future in this year’s competition after edging out Shanghai Port (formerly Shanghai SIPG) to kick off their first-ever AFC Champions League campaign. While Kaya played their first match after more than six months of rest, they face an equally much-rested side in BG Pathum. The hosts have gone undefeated in their last sixteen matches before losing 1-0 to Maungthong United in late March.
Few goals expected on matchday
We don’t expect a high scoreline in this fixture. Kaya-Iloilo kept four clean sheets in their last six games, which includes the 1-0 victory over Shanghai Port that qualified the Philippines side for the AFC Champions League group stage matches. They have conceded only twice in six games. However, we don’t think this will be an easy fixture for Kaya-Iloilo, especially because BG Pathum United have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine matches. The AFC Champions League hosts have conceded only two goals in nine games.
BG Pathum United to open the scoring
We are not only backing BG Pathum to win this game but also to score first. The Thailand side has been in this competition before and makes a return after six years. Home advantage gives Aurelio Vidmar’s the familiarity to find the net first. Thirty-four year old Brazilian, Diogo, will be very instrumental for BG Pathum and is a goalscoring prospect in this fixture.
Match Preview: Kaya-Iloilo Hopes for a Strong Start to their First Ever AFC Champions League Campaign
BG Pathum United
BG Pathum looks forward to a positive start to their AFC Champions League campaign on Saturday 25th June 2021. After nearly three months of rest, Aurelio Vidmar is all set for the big stage. The Australian tactician will bank on his experienced squad to kick-off the campaign against AFC Champions League debutants, Kaya-Iloilo. After 22 games in charge, Aurelio Vidmar is upbeat for a good show. The head coach averages 2.00 points per match, having won 13 matches, drawn five and lost four times.
The big question for Kaya-Iloilo is can they make history again on Saturday when they play against BG Pathum United? The Philippines side is unbeaten in their last nine matches. We think any outcome other than a loss will be good enough for Graham Harvey and his squad. Kaya-Iloilo’s young squad should fancy some points here, especially after defeating 2018 Chinese Super League winners and 2019 Chinese FA Cup winners, Shanghai Port, to qualify for their first AFC Champions League campaign.
