Sydney: A brace from Dejan Damjanovic helped FC Seoul to a 3-2 win over Western Sydney Wanderers in Group F of the AFC Champions League on Tuesday as the K League side avoided a defeat that would have seen them eliminated.

Lee Seok-hyun (pictured, second right) gave the visitors the lead on four minutes at Campbelltown Sports Stadium with a rocket from 25 yards after Western Sydney failed to deal with a free-kick, before Damjanovic doubled their lead from the penalty spot as half-time approached following a pull on Maurinho.

When Damjanovic added a second in the 71st minute, the game appeared over as a contest. But Terry Antonis pulled one back with 15 minutes remaining following fine play from Jumpei Kusukami, and Lachlan Scott added an injury-time header to bring the hosts within striking distance.

However the rally was to prove too little too late for Western Sydney as FC Seoul held on to secure their first points of the continental campaign and keep alive their slim hopes of reaching the knockout stage.
