Adelaide, using the experience of its second ACL champaign, is showing A-League clubs how to win in Asia.
First manage the tempo of the game. Slow it right down.
Play the long ball game and close down at the back. For this, buy hardmen Sasa Ognenovski and Jonas Salley to keep any pretty Brazilians thinking twice.
Finally play a lone striker who is largely there for show and holding up the ball.
