Asian Champions League Quarterfinals
Jeonbuk v Shanghai East Asia 6AM US EST / 7PM Korea time
K League United previewed this match – the thing to note – yes Choi Kang-Hee said he’s retiring, but the inconsistent Hulk will be able to link up with his new Chinese teammates to pose a real threat to Jeonbuk. However, K League United think Jeonbuk has enough to pull ahead to the semis.
Shandong Luneng v FC Seoul 7:30 AM US EST / 8:30 AM
Pelle couldn’t dazzle enough to faze FC Seoul and now Shandong are behind by aggregate score of 3-1. The deadly combo of Adriano, Park Chu-Young and Dejan proved too much. Even though it’s away for FC Seoul, it’s their game to lose at this point.
