Hoang Anh Gia Lai will host Sydney FC on Sunday in the final group stage game of this season's AFC Champions League.

Hoang Anh Gia Lai vs Sydney FC Prediction
Both teams have hugely underperformed in this season's AFC Champions League. Before their latest defeat to Jeonbuk, Sydney found the back of the net just once in their opening four encounters. Despite showing glimpses of promise up front, defensive errors cost them yet another match.
Meanwhile, the hosts have been equally disappointing. Despite getting into winning situations, they have managed to concede ties to Yokohama and Jeonbuk. Subsequently, they are yet to register their first win of the competition.
A goalless draw is on the cards.
Prediction: Hoang Anh Gia Lai 0-0 Sydney FC
