Team Manager Mischa and FW Player Lee attend official interview session the day before the match against FC Seoul  

An official AFC Champions League (ACL) 2017 pre-match interview session was held at Saitama Stadium on the 27th February ahead of the following day’s group stage MD2 match against FC Seoul. Urawa Reds Team Manager Mischa and FW player Tadanari Lee attended the interview session to express their excitement and determination for the upcoming match.
Comment from Team Manager Mischa

We have played against FC Seoul a few times now including practice matches and last year’s ACL match. We know each other well as we have also played a pre-season match this year.

As for last year’s ACL match against them, we unfortunately lost the match at the end of a penalty shootout. The level of the two teams’ performance and the results are always very close whenever we play against each other. Since we both are good teams, I expect a very competitive and challenging match ahead of us tomorrow. We will be in a tough situation if we cannot maintain good stamina and pull out a high level performance around the ball tomorrow.

Comment from FW player Tadanari Lee
First of all, I am very excited about having the opportunity to play our season’s first home match against a fantastic team like FC Seoul. They were the winners of Korea last year and not only us players but also all those concerned are very much looking forward to playing against them in our home stadium after we lost last year’s ACL match to them in a penalty shootout. As we are all in good condition and have prepared ourselves well, we aim to play a great match tomorrow.
