Guangzhou Evergrande became the first Chinese winners of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League when they drew 1-1 with FC Seoul in the second leg on Saturday (November 9) to take the title on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate tie. The Chinese champions dominated but struggled to convert pressure into goals until Brazilian forward Elkeson broke the deadlock in the 58th minute, sending the majority of the red clad 58,000 capacity crowd at the Tianhe Stadium into raptures.
