Jeju United eliminated from AFC Champions League

Jeju United who have only managed one win in the K League One this season were also knocked out of the AFC Champions League in the week. This was following their 2-1 loss to Cerezo Osaka on Tuesday.

After finishing last season as runners-up in South Korea this will be disappointing news for the club. It was a painful defeat at in Osaka, Japan, as the South Koreans surrendered two goals to the hosts in the first half.

The latest result meant Jeju United remained at the bottom in Group G, with one win and four losses.

Jo Sung-hwan's side has one match remaining, but regardless of their clash with Buriram United on April 17, Jeju United will not advance to the round of 16.

As in the European Champions League, the AFC Champions League (ACL) features 32 teams divided into eight groups of four. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage where they play a two-legged, home-and-away tie.
