Yogyakarta: Thailand’s Bluewave Chonburi cruised past Qatar's Al Sailiya 7-2 to top Group C of the AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018 on Monday.
The defending champions will face Group D runners-up Bank of Beirut in the quarter-finals.
Bluewave took control of the match early on with Rudimar Venancio firing a low drive which forced Al Sailiya goalkeeper Ahmad Khalil into conceding a corner.
This time, Venancio was the orchestrator when his corner kick found Suphawut Thueanklang at the top of the arc, who gave no chance to Khalil for the opening goal in the first minute.
Al Sailiya got a grip on the game two minutes later of a counter when Mohamad Safari broke free and unleashed a shot from the left which forced a save from Bluewave goalkeeper Katawut Hankampa.
Al Sailiya continued to prod the Thais but often fell short against their quicker opponents.
