Now Asia: Can Melbourne back up?

Melbourne play again tomorrow night, Tuesday, in the Asian Champions League and they must win. Simple as that.

On a high from the win against Sydney but few Aussie clubs, even clubs across the World have to play Sunday then Tuesday. Seongnam winners on matchday one are the visitors to Melbourne.

A loss for Melbourne and the Victory may see their campaign over, or almost, before it starts.

The AFC and FFA seem to have rocks in their heads as International dates, Finals dates and travel for the best in club football in Asia produce such a schedule for Melbourne.

Adelaide head to Shandong where anything but a defeat will cement the importance of that opening day win. And it will be interesting to see how the New United perform.

A win away and you'd have to think they'll sail through.

With Adelaide looking the goods, and Melbourne still to show in Asia another feast of football lights up the Australian midweek.

And Ross Aloisi doesn't live in Melbourne does he?
