Who will win Beijing Guoan vs Melbourne Victory?
Battle hardened Beijing are obvious favourites and boast an expensive and talented squad. Victory were unable to play genuine warm-up matches due to COVID restrictions in Melbourne and remain without injured Socceroos star Robbie Kruse.
Brebner, who replaced Kevin Muscat as coach, has already moved to downplay expectations as his side prepares to face Beijing twice this week. "We come up against a Chinese powerhouse in our first two games and it is going to be tough," Brebner said.
