FIFA World Cup-winning coach Marcello Lippi led his new Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande into the AFC Champions League quarter-finals with a narrow 1-0 victory over FC Tokyo today. Brazilian striker Cleo's strike on the half-hour decided a pulsating match in front of a vociferous crowd at Guangzhou's Tianhe stadium as the hosts got over the line despite spurning a host of chances.

At the other end, FC Tokyo's Brazilian forward Lucas saw a late header come back off the post as the Emperor's Cup-holders came within inches of forcing extra time. The win, in only Lippi's third game in charge, takes the highly ambitious Chinese champions into the last eight of Asia's club showcase and a step closer to their goal of winning the continental title.

Argentine midfielder Dario Conca played a starring role with some bamboozling passes but it was Cleo who rounded off an attractive move for the game's only goal. Guangzhou's other Brazilian marksman, Muriqui, played a killer ball over the defence which Cho Won-Hee half-volleyed goalwards for Cleo to bundle over from close range.

Italy's Lippi became China's biggest coaching acquisition when he replaced South Korean Lee Jang-Soo at big-spending Guangzhou, who also smashed the Chinese transfer record in acquiring Conca.

Kashiwa crash out

Meanwhile Korea Republic's Ulsan Hyundai Horangi sent Japanese title-holders Kashiwa Reysol crashing out with an entertaining 3-2 win. Ulsan were aided by a Naoya Kondo own-goal as they became the only K-League side to reach the quarter-finals, after 2010 Asian champions Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma were ousted a day earlier.

Kim Shin-Wook put the hosts ahead on 54 minutes before Brazilian midfielder Leandro Domingues equalised for Kashiwa. But Kondo's blunder restored the lead for Ulsan, who got their third on 88 minutes through Lee Keun-Ho. Kashiwa's Junya Tanaka rifled home a left-footed volley in injury-time but it came too late for a revival by the J-League side, who impressed at last year's FIFA Club World Cup under their Brazilian coach Nelsinho.

Next month's draw for the quarter-finals will also feature Australia's Adelaide United and Uzbek champions Bunyodkor, who won on Tuesday. Last week, three Saudi teams booked their places in the last eight - two-time winners Al Ittihad, Al Hilal and Al Ahli - along with Sepahan of Iran.

FIFA官网在一篇题为《广州蔚山晋级洲际八强》的文章中对这场比赛进行介绍的。文章开篇就对广州恒大在本场比赛的表现给予了简单介绍:“1-0小胜东京FC之后,世界杯冠军教头里皮率领中国球队广州恒大跻身亚冠8强。尽管主队在比赛中挥霍了大把机会,但是巴西前锋克莱奥在第30分钟时的进球帮助球队在天河体育场纷纷扰扰的球迷面前成功越线(晋级)。”文章表示,尽管在比赛中东京FC的巴西外援卢卡斯险些利用一记头球将比赛拖入加时赛,即便这场比赛只是里皮入主广州恒大以来的第三场比赛,但是仍然用一场胜利将雄心勃勃的中超冠军带进了亚冠八强,距离他们称霸亚洲的目标又近了一步。

随即,文章对恒大四名外援的出色表现给予了称赞,尤其是本场比赛唯一的进球正是四名外援之间的精彩配合所致:“在比赛中屡屡传出令人眼花缭乱的好球阿根廷中场孔卡的表现堪称星级,但却是克莱奥也用一个制胜进球为自己的完美跑位画上句号。而恒大阵中的另外一名巴西神枪手穆里奇则为韩国外援赵源熙送上一记摧毁对方防线的传球,让后者的传中帮助克莱奥在球门前破门得分。”(中文部分来自网易体育)
