An official AFC Champions League (ACL) 2019 pre-match interview session was held at Saitama Stadium on 5th March ahead of the group stage MD1 match against Buriram United F.C.

Comment from Team Manager Oswaldo Oliveira

Hello everyone. Firstly, let me say that it is a great honor for me to be able to challenge the ACL again. The ACL is not only a very hard championship but also a very fascinating championship. As this is the case, my motivations for this championship have been boosted again.

Our team will be playing a group stage match tomorrow but before I talk about tomorrow’s match, I would like to talk about the group we belong to a little. Within Group G, we have three very high-quality teams as our opponents. They have a number of high-level players and those three teams have good experience playing in the ACL. Out of the three teams within the group, the team I led played against two of them in the ACL before.

As for tomorrow’s match, it will be such an important match to be played in our home stadium. It will be fantastic if we can win the match here in our home stadium. We will make our best efforts to win the home match tomorrow.

Comment from Shusaku Nishikawa

Hello everyone. First of all, I am very pleased that Urawa Reds is able to play in the Asian arena once again. Our team won the ticket to play in the ACL by winning the Emperor’s Cup title last year. Now that we have this great opportunity, I would like to fully embrace it to play in the Asian arena with my team members. Tomorrow’s match won’t be easy and we understand how important it is to nail the first match. Our team has leant from our past experiences and will be united looking in the same direction in order to achieve a great result amongst other great Asian teams. I will do my utmost so that our team can achieve a successful result tomorrow.
