Jeonbuk, Guangzhou win in Asian Champions League


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -South Korean champion Jeonbuk Motors kept alive its hopes of a place in the Asian Champions League last 16 by beating visiting group leader Buriram United 3-2 on Tuesday.

Along with Guangzhou Evergrande's 3-1 defeat of J-League champ Kashiwa Reysol, Group H remained a tight contest, with Guangzhou the new leader and last-placed Kashiwa only three points adrift with two matches to go.

In Group F, FC Tokyo and Ulsan Hyundai all but advanced to the next round after staying unbeaten.

Tokyo downed Beijing Guoan of China 3-0 and Ulsan got past A-League champ Brisbane Roar 2-1, to move six points clear of the losers.

In South Korea, Lee Dong-gook scored twice in two minutes to lead Jeonbuk to victory.
