In the Quarter-Finals of the AFC Cahmpions League, Shandong Luneng are in the Last Eight for the first time in 11 years and would be looking to score some valuable away goals against FC Seoul, in the First Leg of their tie. And while the Chinese side would be able to find the net on the night, they would still leave with a deficit, thanks in part to a former CSL player.

Seoul get on the board in the 19th minute courtesy of a header from Dejan Damjanovic. The former Beijing Guoan striker gives the K-League side a 1-0 lead with a nice nod.

And the hosts are going to double their advantage in the 31st minute when former Arsenal man Park Chu-Young slips away from his marker, and fires a first-time shot past the Shandong goalkeeper.

Luneng pull one back four minutes later. Walter Montillo curls a fine free-kick around the wall and inside the post, cutting Seoul's edge to 2-1.

But the South Koreans restore their two-goal cushion in the 69th minute on an easy strike from Adriano, thanks to a beautiful back-heel from Damjanovic that sets up the simple finish, and it's 3-1 for Seoul.

With nine minutes left, Jin Jingdao kicks out at Adriano and the Shandong midfielder is sent-off for a second yellow card.

The final score is 3-1, leaving Luneng lots of ground to make up in the Second Leg in Shandong on September 14th.
