Time: 20:00 (GMT+8) on February 18th

Venue: Chiang Rai Stadium

Competition: 2020 AFC Champions League

Group E of the 2020 AFC Champions League will witness the much-anticipated match between the Thai side Chiangrai United and the Chinese side Beijing Guoan.

The champion of Thailand started the campaign with a loss against the Australian side Melbourne Victory. The match was tight and Chiangrai United has shown that they are at the same level with their opponent, but a penalty conceded early at the match ruined the results for the side from Thai League 1. They did also start their campaign domestically, but only gained a draw against Samut Parkan City on the quest to defend the championship.

They will host Beijing Guoan at home for their second match at the Asian most prestigious playground at the club level. After weeks of quarantine due to coronavirus, Beijing Guoan will finally start their whole season. They finished as the runner-up last season at the Chinese Super League, and moved on to the group stage. 

This will be the first time these two teams encounter at the AFC Champions League. 

With a star-studded squad, it is no doubt that Beijing Guoan will handle the match with ease. As for the host, a point would be very vital at the moment.
