{openx:29}

Pohang Steelers 4 – Bunyodkor 1 (Agg. 5-4) (AFC Champions League, September 30, 2009) Disaster for former Chelsea boss Felipe Scolari as his Bunyodkor side capitulated in the second leg of their quarter-final clash. Kim Jae-Sung fired the hosts ahead early in the second half before a Denilson double put the Koreans in the driving seat. A last-gasp Victor Karpenko goal pushed the match into extra time, where 12 minutes in Macedonian striker Stevica Ristic headed the final goal of the game to send Pohang wild with delight.

Nagoya Grampus Eight 3 – Kawasaki Frontale 1 (Agg. 4-3) (AFC Champions League, September 30, 2009) Nagoya started strongly with Yoshizumi Ogawa and Yoshida Maya putting them up 2-up after 35 minutes. North Korean international Chong Tese hit back three minutes later with a valuable away goal for Kawasaki, but just before the 90 minutes were up Aussie forward Josh Kennedy grabbed an 88th minute for Nagoya to put them in the semis.

FC Seoul 1 – Umm Salal 1 (Agg. 3-4) (AFC Champions League, September 30, 2009) The Qataris opened the scoring early in the first half through Ben Askar Aziz but Dejan Damjanovic equalised soon after to ensure a nervy encounter.
