Jeonbuk 1-1 Shandong at half time - Jeonbuk have been the stronger team and went ahead but switched iff in the last 5 minutes of the half as per usual and gave away a goal. Leonardo and Edu left on the bench - hopefully we'll see them and some more goals in the second half...

Jeonbuk run out 4-1 winners in the end, but they finish second in the group on head to head with Kashiwa.

Looks like all four Korean sides have avoided each other then for the quarter-finals as they all finished second in their respective groups:

Suwon v Kashiwa Reysol
Jeonbuk v Beijing Guoan
FC Seoul v Gamba Osaka
Seongnam v Guangzhou Evergrande

A good second half, one header from a free kick, an Eninho penalty and a textbook pass splitting the defence open for Edu to score the fourth. They were clearly given a bit of an ear-bashing by Choi at half time as that second half was much better. Beijing up next on the 19th and although they all finished second, I wouldnt be totally surprised to see all 4 Korean sides lock out the last 4 in the East Asia group...

Not looking good for Suwon's hopes of progressing to the quarter-finals as they lost 3-2 at home to Kashiwa. They're going to have to go to Japan and win by two clear goals which they'll probably struggle to do. Not a particularly clever result for Jeonbuk either drawing 1-1 at home and conceding a late penalty equaliser.

seongnam was the only win? against evergrande? anyone see that coming? 4 home games and 1 win. seoul and suwon have a lot of work to do, jeonbuk HAS to score. the beijing defense was pretty good already, i'm sure they can use that away goal to their advantage. i'm interested to see what lineup JB will go with.

games are next week yeah?

No, I'm shocked. I still don't think Seongnam will be the only Korean representative in the next round, but we'll see.

I doubt Seoul will be able to make that home lose up next week. Away goals rule is a pain.

Jeonbuk has to win or tie and win on away goals.

Suwon is now down 3 away goals and must win.

Seongnam is not in an easy spot. They could tie and still advance but Evergrande is getting some injured players back for next weeks match.

yeah, suwon has to win by two or return the score, seoul has to score three goals.. suwons chances are slightly better but still going to be tought for those two. Jeonbuk HAS to score, i wonder what kind of lineup guoan will bring. could be a big defensive wall with two of their 3 foreigners up top just praying for a breakaway or another run into the box and flop. jeonbuk scares me

I saw most of the rest of the 2nd half, and Kashiwa's defence looked pretty weak. There's definitely a chance to score goals in Japan, but big doubts about keeping them out at the other end.

Well, they're off to a good start; 2-0 after 54 minutes, and dominating the 2nd half. A third would do it....

jeonbuk did well in the first, i suppose, they had all the highlights, so i assume it was a defensive with counter plan from guoan. edu wasnt going to miss from there but i am a bit surprised donggook missed his volley from up close, he usually gets 99% of those! (which means he will get the next 99)

the red card was stupid from them, could have been more of a head having that extra guy on for the next two minutes. it seemed like we had the man down as much as they were pressuring us in the box. they got quite a few shots and kwon suntae did well in front of the net to get the job done.

did suwon change their game plan after two goals? or kashiwa? didnt see any of the game, and for some reason i thought they needed 3 but that would have been great having these two teams go through.

ill pull for seongnam today just cause evergrande can suck a bag.
well well well
