Host did make the biggest surprise in the season, by kicking out Champion and the best team in France from the Cup, but that could affect team play in the league, where squad is at the bottom of the table. They have lost to rival of Saint Etienne 1:0 in the recent round, and now will have Rennes in the top of the form to face.
Visitors are in the run of few recent victories and they will try to keep on with the well series in this one. Rennes have enough power to make good performance and get out with at least draw from this clash.
Philipines will try to get to the third position in the group, with this duel against Kyrgistan. Teams are not doing good, but it was expected from from them, that would try to placed as the best third ranked squad. Kyrgistan got some advantage here, but this team did not make any particular success on the Asian competitions.
Philipines did not score a goal at the AFC Cup till this round, and if manage to break rival defensive line once, team could get back and stand for the minimal result here. Not many goals scored and away side should have light advantage.
China should not play as underdog here in the match, since both teams are having same record so far and that their rival did not went into this with the full squad. China is having quality lineup and roster that should be able to get to the well result at the AFC Cup. Their play in the defense should allow to the team to have space in the mid of the field, where players can wait for the rival mistake.
South Korea made two 1:0 winning games, and they were lucky to make six points so far. China did not lose from this opponent in the previous encounters, and should not have problem to make one good effort against traditional rival. Even if match went with over, goals, China have power in attack to push South Korea for open fight.
