Two of Asia's top clubs will go all out to prove their doubters wrong in setting the stage for another shot at continental honors when China's Guangzhou Evergrande visits Seongnam FC of South Korea in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie in the AFC Champions League on Wednesday.

Seongnam is the two-time Asian champion while Evergrande gave China its first title in the competition in 2013.

The clash marks the second trip to South Korea for Fabio Cannavaro, Chinese Super League champion Evergrande's Italian coach. Less than a month ago the former World Cup winning captain secured a scoreless draw against FC Seoul and comfortably won Group H to return to the knockout stages for a fourth consecutive year.
