Pyongyang: DPR Korea’s 4.25 SC advanced to the Inter-Zone semi-finals after defeating Hang Yuan FC 5-0 in Group I of the 2019 AFC Cup on Wednesday.

The Pyongyang side made it five wins in a row and will be a force to be reckoned with in the Inter-Zone semi-finals, having fallen to Altyn Asyr in the 2018 final.

It was Hang Yuan's fifth consecutive defeat and the Chinese Taipei club will be looking to earn their first point when they play Tai Po on Matchday Six.
