MELBOURNE Victory coach Kevin Muscat has urged his side not to die wondering against the might of Shanghai SIPG in Tuesday night’s Asian Champions League showdown in China.

Victory is yet to win overseas in 16 ACL attempts and will arrive at Shanghai Stadium as underdogs against a side that made the semi-finals of last year’s Champions League and finished second in the Chinese Super League.

Victory played SIPG in the 2016 ACL, beating them 2-1 at AAMI Park before suffering a 3-1 loss away from home later in the group stage.

But even though the Hulk and Oscar-inspired side is one of the favourites to win this year’s competition, Muscat insists his charges will not take a backwards step.
