AFC Champions League

Seoul: FC Seoul enjoyed a confidence-boosting win ahead of the second leg of the 2013 AFC Champions League final with Guangzhou Evergrande as Choi Yong-soo’s side came from a goal down to defeat Suwon Bluewings 2-1 in the K League Classic on Sunday.

FC Seoul hadn’t won since defeating Esteghlal 2-0 in the first leg of their 2013 ACL semi-final clash at the end of September and when DPR Korea international Jong Tae-se put Suwon a goal to the good with just six minutes at the Seoul World Cup Stadium played the omens of Choi’s side ending their winless streak at six matches did not look good.

But with ten minutes of the first half left to play Dejan Damjonivc drew FC Seoul level before the Montenegrin marksman, who was on target in the first-leg of the ACL final with his sixth of the tournament, scored the winner against Suwon in the 76th minute.

FC Seoul will now face off against Guangzhou Evergrande in the second leg of the AFC Champions League final at the Tianhe Stadium on November 9, with the two teams having shared a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Korea.
