Sydney FC wasted a golden chance to get their Asian Champions League campaign off to a flying start, held to a 0-0 draw by Ulsan Hyundai at Kogarah on Wednesday night.

The Sky Blues welcomed the South Korean club to Jubilee Stadium on a blustery night where the wind played havoc, making it difficult to play free flowing football.

A disappointing crowd of just 4039 watched on as the hosts had a number of chances but were not able to take one, with Andrew Redmayne almost a spectator in the Sydney goal.

Sky Blues coach Steve Corica was left frustrated with the result after his side's dominant performance.

Sydney FC have now failed to win any of their last four home Asian Champions League matches.

The Sky Blues take on J-League champions Kawasaki Frontale in Japan next Wednesday night. They will enjoy this weekend off with no A-League commitments.

Sydney FC return to Kogarah for their third Champions League group stage clash against Chinese champions Shanghai SIPG on April 10.
