According to a media report by Ma Dexing, the three Australian Super League teams are planning to withdraw from this year’s AFC Champions League. The reason is that the Australian government requires them to undergo a two-week quarantine after returning from Doha and cannot train during this period. This will have a serious impact. The team prepares for the Australian Super League for the new season.
The report said that the current situation of the epidemic in Australia is not optimistic. The Australian government requires all immigrants to undergo a two-week quarantine observation, which of course also includes the three Australian Super League teams that are about to go to Doha to participate in the AFC.
According to the plan of the Australian Football Association, the new season of the Australian Super League will start on December 27. If an Australian Super League team reaches the semi-finals (December 13), even if they are eliminated and returned to China, they will miss the first round of the Australian Super League. If you reach the finals, it will affect the new season league.
Sydney FC coach Steve Korica said: "We have to consider whether it is worth going to Doha to participate in the game. For players, they need to take a certain risk when they go to the game.
In the AFC East Asian group stage, the Australian Super League team Melbourne wins and Guoan is in the same group, Perth Glory is in the same group as Shenhua, and Sydney FC is in the same group as SIPG.
