thumbnail Hello,

Holes were discovered in the away team's changing room door after the hosts defeated the Chinese side in their AFC Champions League Round of 16 tie

Three sending offs in the second half of the match between Beijing Guoan and FC Seioul were probably a sign of things to come after the match.

In the AFC Champions League Round of 16 second-leg tie in Korea, Beijing scored an early goal in the first half courtesy of Frederic Kanoute. Seoul then took charge of the second half, missing a penalty before they equalized and took the lead.

Goalscorer Kanoute received two unnecessary bookings in the second half; first for an altercation with Seoul’s Adilson during a throw-in, and then for taking a shot after the referee blew his whistle.

Adilson also received a second yellow late into the game, meaning he will miss the next match. He was not alone in being dismissed late into the game as Beijing’s Zhang Xin Xin accompanied him into the showers early after also receiving a second booking.

After the match concluded 3-1 to Seoul, the home side’s staff heard a ruckus coming from the away dressing room. Upon investigation, they discovered holes in the door and found the room’s signage broken.

The home side have submitted a photo of the mess made and have reported the matter to the Asian Football Confederation, and are now awaiting the AFC’s decision regarding the matter.
