An award ceremony was arranged before the match to honour the 100th cap of Augusto since his joining to the club. Our General Manager Li Ming presented the memorial jersey to the vice-captain. ‘It was a special moment for me because I have played 100 games for the club,’ said Augusto with much excitement. ‘I am grateful to celebrate this moment with everyone, and I hope that there would be more moments like this to come.’

/Match Stats/

/Goup Table/

Jeonbuk Hyundai defeated Urawa Red Diamonds in this round and top the group with 9 points. Urawa rank third in the group with 4 points, and Buriram are at the bottom with 3 points. Beijing FC have moved up to the second spot with 7 points, however the battle for knock-out stage qualification is still intense as no clear difference could separate all candidates significantly. Beijing FC should continue their endeavour for the upcoming matches.

/The 12th Player/

Lastly, we would like to give our sincerest regards to the fans who came to support the team today despite the heavy rain. We shall see each other again at the Worker’s Stadium this weekend when the team play against Dalian Yifang on 28 April.
