Next up is an ASEAN meets West battle as the AFC Cup's all-time leading scorer Bienvenido Marañón, who netted 35 goals for the Philippines' Ceres Negros, takes on Lebanon's Mohamad Haidar, who has scored for both Safa and Al Ahed in the competition.

Check out their excellent goals and vote for the one you think should advance to the next round.


Bienvenido Marañón (Ceres Negros)
2018 AFC Cup
Ceres Negros vs Yangon United (09.05.2018)

He's been scoring AFC Cup goals for fun since 2016, but it's fair to say that few, if any, of Bienvenido Marañón's 35 will have been as good as this one against Yangon United from the 2018 ASEAN Zonal semi-finals. Mike Ott threads a lovely pass into his path and when the Spaniard gets inside the area he chips a perfectly weighted effort over the goalkeeper to open the scoring in a 4-2 win.

Mohamad Haidar (Safa SC)
2013 AFC Cup
Safa SC vs Kuwait SC (01.05.2013)

Mohamad Haidar had two Kuwait SC markers in close quarters on the right touchline but he managed to wriggle in between them both before cutting inside with purpose and evading two more Kuwaiti players on the edge of the area and firing into the bottom left corner. The goal gave Safa a 1-0 win in their final group stage game but the Lebanese side narrowly missed out on a place in the knockout rounds.

*The poll has ended. Thank you for voting.
