17 February 2015 Hitachi Kashiwa Soccer Stadium, Kashiwa, Japan
Its the 1ast time that both teams face each other at ACL competition
Kashiwa previous and only meeting vs a Thai club was vs Burinam United
Chonburi previous and only meeting vs Japanese clubs was Gamba Osaka at 2008
Chonburi dreams to return to the group stage again, last time they werer at that stage was in 2008, they want to continue the tradition of thai clubs to be every year at the group stage since Burinam debuted at ACL in 2012 and with that Thai clubs returned once again to Asia premier club competition.
Last time Kashiwa played at ACL was in 2013 where they reached the semifinal stage losing to eventual winners Guangzhou Evergrande
