Guangzhou Evergrande into last 16 of ACL
NAGOYA, Japan (AP) -Japan's Kashiwa Reysol eliminated last year's runner-up Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors 2-0 to reach the last 16 of the Asian Champions League on Tuesday.
Jeonbuk, also the 2006 champion, needed only a point to advance, but fell to second-half goals by Leandro Domingues and Junya Tanaka.
The K-League side's problems were compounded when Lee Dong-gook, the top-scorer in the 2011 ACL, hit the post off a penalty.
Kashiwa advanced as the runner-up in Group H to China Super League champ Guangzhou Evergrande, which beat Thailand's Buriram United 2-1 on an injury-time penalty from Dario Conca.
Japan's Nagoya Grampus also advanced from Group G after beating Australia's Central Coast Mariners 3-0. South Korea's Seongnam Ilhwa topped the group with a 3-0 drubbing of China's Tianjin Teda.
