Ahead of Adelaide United’s crucial third Group H clash with Jeju United in the AFC Champions League, here are some of the key statistics for the match.

The Reds will be desperate to get three points on the board to keep alive their aspirations of reaching the knockout stage.

Wednesday night’s game with Jeju will be the first meeting between the two sides.

However, historically Adelaide boast an impressive record against South Korean opposition, registering four wins and three draws in nine matches.

Moreover, the Reds have never lost at home to a K League team in five fixtures in the competition, after recording three triumphs and two stalemates.

On his AFC Champions League debut, Eli Babalj scored after coming off the bench to expertly head home Tarek Elrich’s delightful cross in a 2-1 loss to Jiangsu Suning.

Reds defender, Dylan McGowan made nine clearances in the matchday two clash versus Jiangsu and was successful in nine of his 14 duels.
