something related to the ACL Chinese participations in off season,

as the CSL will have a squad limit of 30 (25+5, 25 domestic players + 5 foreigners, includes a AFC Foreigner), most of the clubs have to release 5 or 6 players from current squads (30+5 in 2014,) as a result, next season's Guangzhou Evergrande squads will only keep 7 or 8 players from ACL champions squads.

recently reports indicates Guangzhou Evergrande will sign Brazil International fred on a two years contract worth USD 11m,A potential Fred-Elkeson duo could be one of the most lethal strike partnerships in Asia, never mind the CSL. while Italy player Gilardino will be transfered to Atalanta, Guangzhou Evergrande is also looking for a AFC player to replace Korean International Kim Young-Gwon.

Beijing Guoan's Chinese left winger Zhang Xizhe, 23, is being targeted by Wolfsburg, according to the Bundesliga club's general manager Klaus Allofs.Beijing Guo'an had finished the transfer of Sweden player Erton Fejzullahu from Djurgårdens IF on a transfer fee of 1.08m EUR, Erton Fejzullahu was previously on loan at Guo'an.

Guangzhou R&F had lost their coach and some key players to Shanghai SIPG in transfer market,Coach Sven Goran Eriksson, together with Brazilian player Davi, Korean International Jang Hyun-Soo, Chinese International Jiang Ning and Morocco International Abderrazak Hamdallah will all left Guangzhou R&F For Shanghai SIPG.

Shandong Luneng Taishan is linked with Brazilian player Diego Tardelli, reports metioned he will replace Frank Love, Shandong is almost set to release Ryan Mcgowan as the club decided to sign a Korean player.

FIX!

I think I see the problem

FC Seoul are moving to Thailand!

Only joking. There's probably a reasonable explanation such as the groups were drawn today but the playoffs were drawn earlier.

Don't worry about al-Sadd, they have Al Wahda (my 'local' team when I was living in the UAE) in the second round. I'll wear my Wahda shirt and scarf, that'll make the difference!

H3 is Kashima Antlers; H4 is basically guaranteed to be FC Seoul (No way on earth they'll lose at home to an Indonesian or Vietnamese team). Group of death here then!
This season I will be mostly supporting :
KLClassic - Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors / KLChallenge & National League - Anyone & Everyone / K3 League - Jeonju Citizen

The defending champions are currently bottom of the A-League and still winless (after 9 matches). Seoul qualified by the skin of their teeth. Guangzhou have a new manager completely untested at managerial level, but I would still make them favourites.

Full time:
FC Seoul 7-0 Hanoi T&T

A K3 side would have given us more challenge than Hanoi.

38 minutes in and Seongnam are 2-0 down to Buriram United (it was 2-0 after 18 minutes as well).. this is the problem with allowing diddy teams access to the ACL via winning the Korean FA Cup.

Jeonbuk about to finish playing out a goalless draw with Kashiwa Reysol in the other game today it would seem.
