Suwon: Two-time winners Guangzhou Evergrande preserved their unbeaten record in the 2017 AFC Champions League with a 2-2 away draw at Suwon Samsung Bluewings thanks to a late equaliser from Brazilian forward Alan.

A dramatic first half saw Suwon take an early lead from a corner through Brazilian forward Santos, although his strike was quickly cancelled out by a stunning volley from compatriot Ricardo Goulart at the other end.

Johnathan restored Suwon’s advantage heading into half-time, firing home from a well-rehearsed corner routine before striking the bar with a header as the hosts threatened to pull clear before the break.

Suwon appeared to be heading towards victory for much of the second period before Alan’s intervention with 10 minutes remaining. The result also leaves Suwon unbeaten so far this campaign following last week's draw away at Kawasaki Frontale.
