Korean battle tops quarter-final draw
Seongnam Ilhwa will meet Suwon Bluewings in an all-South Korean duel after the draw for the quarter-finals of the AFC Champions League quarter-finals was made.
Four sides from Korea Republic progressed from the last 16, meaning there was always likely to be an encounter between two sides from the country in the last eight.
It is the first time that four teams from one nations have reached the quarter-finals of the tournament, and means there is a good chance a Korean side could lift the trophy for the second successive year following Pohang Steelers' triumph in 2009.
The defending champions will take on Iranian side Zob Ahan, while the final South Korean side still in the competition are Jeonbuk Motors, with the 2006 champions to meet Al Shabab of Saudi Arabia. Fellow Saudis Al Hilal face Qatar's Al Gharafa to complete the quarter-final ties.
The first legs will take place on 15 September, with the return games eight days later.
