JDT VS NGY Team Preview
Johor Darul Ta’zim
Johor Darul Ta’zim had won back-to-back Malaysian Super League games heading into their AFC Champions League match. We anticipate seeing a much revitalized Johor Darul Ta’zim in this game after more than a month of rest since their last game.
Since taking over the first team in August 2018, team coach Benjamin Mora has only lost once. The Mexican coach has managed to complete 20 games, winning 15 and drawing four.
Nagoya Grampus last competed in the continental tournament in 2012, when they were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Adelaide United of Australia. The Japanese team’s best performance occurred in 2009, when they advanced to the semi-finals against Al Hilal SFC of Saudi Arabia, losing 8-3 on aggregate.
Massimo Ficcadenti, Nagoya’s head coach, will be looking to keep Nagoya’s flawless record of reaching the knockout rounds in each of their previous three visits intact.
