will play against

Beijing FC

after their 3-1 defeat against the Chinese side three days ago. The Australian team played their first game of this season’s AFC Champions League on Tuesday and their defeat against Beijing FC was their first competitive game since August. Ahead of Melbourne’s rematch with

The Imperial Guards

, Steve Kean has spoken about his team’s form and their better preparation for the upcoming match.

“Our preparations have been very good for this match,”

said the former Blackburn Rovers coach.

 “We’ve seen it as a benefit that we’re again playing against the same team. We take a lot of positives from the first game, especially the way we finished the first half and the way we finished the game, was particularly pleasing for us.”

 “We do feel that legs in the competition and playing your very first game against such a tough opposition, in such a high-profile competition is a good barometer of where we are. You can’t invent these types of high-quality games. They are what they are. We feel we’re a lot closer to where we want to get to at the end of this competition by having that first game. We feel as though we’re in a better place. We’re confident and are hopeful we can get something from the second game.”
