Tokyo FC vs Ceres-Negros match information

Time: 18:00 (GMT+8) on January 28th

Venue: Ajinomoto Stadium

Competition: 2020 AFC Champions League

The winner of the play-off match between Tokyo FC and Ceres-Negros will be drawn in Group F with Ulsan Hyundai, Shanghai Shenhua, and Perth Glory at the final tournament of the 2020 AFC Champions League.

Although having some difficulties in the preparation for the new season, Ceres-Negros still managed to impress their supporters by having back-to-back victories in the 2020 AFC Champions League qualifiers.

At the second preliminary round, Ceres-Negros surprised the Asian audience by beating the Thai giant Port FC by the only goal scored by midfielder Stephan Schrock.

Before that, they had another difficult game in the first round, defeating the Burmese champion Shan United by a 3-2 score. Only by winning against Tokyo FC can Ceres–Negros advance to play at the final tournament of the 2020 AFC Champions League.

However, it is very difficult for them at the moment, because Tokyo FC is one of the strongest teams in the J1 League when they competed for the champion title last season, only losing Yokohama Marinos in the final fixture.

In other words, Tokyo FC may easily win the match to advance to the final tournament as long as they play with their real strength as they have done in the previous games.

Tokyo FC vs Ceres–Negros potential lineups:

Tokyo FC: Tsuyoshi Kodama, Joan Oumari, Masato Morishige, Tsuyoshi Watanabe, Daiki Niwa, Adailton, Leandro, Arthur Silva, Keigo Higashi, Na Sang Ho, Diego Oliveira.
