Buriram: A dramatic injury time strike from Yoo Jun-soo secured Buriram United a 1-1 draw against Guangzhou Evergrande of China PR in the 2018 AFC Champions League on Tuesday, leaving Group G wide open with one round of matches to play.
Two-time champions Guangzhou burst out of the traps at Buriram Stadium and dominated the opening period, with Zheng Long making sure their pressure paid off in the 20th minute when he drilled home from the edge of the area after being teed up by Ricardo Goulart.
Fabio Cannavaro’s side continued to threaten after moving in front, with Buriram goalkeeper Sivarak Tedsungnoen pulling off a string of fine saves to keep the hosts in the game.
They made sure to capitalise on their shot-stopper’s fine display - and some lax finishing from Guangzhou - deep into time added on, as Yoo slammed home to make it 1-1 in the 92nd minute.
