Victory bow out of ACL with meek draw

Melbourne Victory exited Asian Champions League contention with barely a whimper as Chinese club Beijing Guoan held them to a 0-0 draw at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

The result ended the Victory's faint hopes of qualifying for the second stage, leaving Adelaide United as Australia's only survivor in the round of 16.

Undermanned Melbourne were outclassed throughout by the Chinese side, who had several chances to win the match and sew up a round of 16 berth but failed to take any.

Beijing's Australian striker Joel Griffiths, who caused plenty of trouble for the Victory defence all night, had perhaps his side's best opportunity.

But he put a second half header just wide, as well as creating another gilt-edged first half opportunity for midfielder Huang Bowen which was put wide.

Melbourne's best period of the match came in the last 20 minutes.

Striker Nik Mrdja went closest to breaking the deadlock with his 74th minute shot from a rebound eventually saved by Beijing keeper Yang Zhi.

The Victory now sit bottom of Group E, with second-placed Beijing Guoan and Japanese club Kawasaki Frontale set to fight it out for second place in the group.
