The Sky Blues took the lead courtesy of beautifully chipped effort from Ninkovic but Suwon’s main man Damjanovic cancelled out the opener immediately to draw the Korean’s level.

However Brosque restored the lead before the half-time break with a header from a left wing free kick. Suwon pressed forward in the second half but a resolute Sydney FC defence held firm and Redmayne made a number of crucial saves. As the home side pushed for the equaliser, the Sky Blues took the opportunity to break, with late goals from Mierzejewski and Bobô securing the 4-1 win. The result is the Sky Blues’ best in the continental competition and sets up a blockbuster encounter for the last game at home to Shanghai Shenhua. A win and a failure for Suwon to beat Kashima Antlers will ensure the Sky Blues move through to the round of 16.

Adrian Mierzejewski said at the post-match press release that it was a very hard game for them but they took their chance, and it was a very important to get the three points and they look forward to the next game.

Head coach Graham Arnold said after the game that “tonight was a great performance and we look forward to playing our last game against Shanghai at home. We focus on ourselves. Most important thing is to get the tactics right and to make sure our players are fresh. We played on Thursday and we were in great shape. We feel we are up there with any team in the Asian Champions League and we will look to get the same result in our last group game.”
