Adelaide United could already have one foot in the semi-finals of the AFC Champions League final if not for a dramatic twist to the story in the first leg at Hindmarsh Stadium on September 19.

The Reds looked to be coasting after Iain Ramsay and then Evan Kostopoulos scored to give them just reward for their domination of the Swallows, but a red card to defender Nigel Boogaard for a last-man challenge changed all that.

Jasur Hasanov put the subsequent free-kick up and over the wall to make the Reds pay immediately, and
Shavkat Salamov's 75th-minute equaliser gave Bunyodkor an away goals advantage ahead of Wednesday's second leg.

Boogaard will miss the match through suspension but has the perfect replacement in fit-again Jon McKain, with Reds coach John Kosmina - still having to hand matchday duties to assistant Michael Valkanis as he goes through his badges - likely to otherwise go with the same XI that had been in control until that untimely red card.

Sergio van Dijk has travelled with United, despite being linked with a move to Indonesia.

While United have not had a competitive match since the first leg, Bunyodkor have won both Uzbek League games since and seem a confident outfit going into the match in Tashkent.

Anvarjon Soliev scored twice in the Swallows' 3-1 away win against Mettalurg on Saturday, and he could be set for a start after coming off the bench in Adelaide.

Veteran Viktor Karpenko missed Bunyodkor's last league match, with Sakhob Jurayev to take his place at left-back if he is absent again.
