president Newin Chidchob insists that his side are not inferior to ahead of their AFC Champions League encounter on March 3.

Although Cosmin Contra’s R&F side boast a wealth of experienced players when it comes to the continental competition, Newin expects his team to prosper at Yuexiushan Stadium.

“I think Guangzhou R&F are weaker than Seongnam, but they have two key players with better qualities: Abderazak Hamdallah and Michel Herrero,” the Thunder Castle’s president told reporters.

“However, I am confident that we can have a great chance to secure a point from Guanzghou and our target of course is to get the three points.”

The two Group F sides opened their  campaigns last week with victories; Buriram won 2-1 over Seongnam FC while R&F defeated Gamba Osaka 2-0.
