FULL TIME ; JEJU UNITED 1, ADELAIDE UNITED 3 - It's all over at Jeju World Cup Stadium and it's Adelaide United who have put in one of the more memorable performances from an Australian side in the ACL. With Jeju running riot with numerous chances in the first half, Adelaide were able to hang tough through desperate defending. With second half strikes to both McGowan and McGree against the run of play, United would weather a late storm from the hosts before claiming a memorable and pivotal 3-1 win on the road.
90' Three minutes of added time is confirmed.
89' SAVED - Not meant to be Ahn's night as he's released clinically inside the left side of the box. With beautiful footwork seeing him able to trap the ball, he squeezes off a low drive which is thundering towards the left corner. Galekovic's down in time to tip it wide however.
Yellow Card
87' YELLOW CARD ADELAIDE - Four cards in four minutes for United as Garuccio's now pinged for an ankle clip on Woon II Kim. With a next-up trip to Japan for Adelaide, there's at least three players that won't be making the trip now. Adelaide may win tonight but they're losing players for their next fixture.
Yellow Card
86' YELLOW CARD ADELAIDE - Not even sure what's going on now with Adelaide as now Referee Alsamaheeji produces yellow for McGree. McGree's only wrong act was to basically drop a ball out of play for another team-mate to throw in. Time-wasting? Harsh if true; the yellow stands.
Yellow Card
84' YELLOW CARD ADELAIDE - Nope. Wrong call this. With Jin fouling McGowan in a tangle down the hosts left channel, McGowan turns to win the ball back and manages to do so before a late whistle halts the action. With Jin limping over the sideline, the ruling is that McGowan had fouled him. Incorrect. Tough yellow.

83' SUBSTITUTION ADELAIDE - Ochieng ON

82' SUBSTITUTION ADELAIDE - Mileusnic OFF
Yellow Card
81' YELLOW CARD ADELAIDE - Pretty lazy this from Mileusnic and certainly not needed. With the visitors building down the right in attack, the ball's turned over cheaply before Oh retrieves the ball and is struck on the ankle late by a sliding Mileusnic. Sloppy; nothing else.
79' CHANCE - Heart in mouth stuff for Adelaide as Mendy presents honestly into the air in order to meet an aerial ball. With Galekovic jumping early, the ball falls to Mendy however the Jeju midfielder can't get a clean-footed effort on the ball as Marrone urgently clears.
76' CHANCE - Jeju can't afford to miss many chances like this as Ahn positions himself perfectly outside the area. With an inviting cross meeting him, Ahn loads from up 18 yards and offloads a curling effort which lofts over the crossbar. Ahn pulls his shirt over his head in disgust.
73' SAVED - Beautiful 'keeping from Chang-Keun Lee keeps Jeju alive as Garrucio and Cirio stand over a free kick on the right wing. With the former taking it, it's curled beautifully towards the back post where Diawara steams a header towards the back of the net. Instinctively, Lee tips it over the crossbar spectacularly. Flag was up in either case.
70' The hosts are far from done as Toscano receives 25 yards out and looks to link with Mendy. With United defenders swarming, they force the ball out into the left channel before a late swinging cross from Chang-Min Lee is taken overhead by Galekovic.

Goal
64' GOAL ADELAIDE; JEJU UNITED 1, ADELAIDE UNITED 3 - High drama in Jeju as Adelaide pounce to score their third for the evening. With nice lead-up work seeing Diawara feeding Kim into the right of the box, the latter turns a ball across the area. Finding McGree, his initial shot is blocked before he slides to ground and scuffs home the follow up from close range.
62' Adelaide starting to look a little more composed in defence how their main issue is getting beyond halfway. With Jeju having them pinned back, their only outlet at the moment appears to be lofted balls to Marrone down the right. Not sure how the visitors can get out otherwise.
59' Risky business at the back once more for Adelaide as Jeju win themselves a corner. Swung in from the right by Toscano, it's Cirio who slips in his attempt to clear it from defence however Marrone's on hand to spare any further blushes.

Substitution
55' SUBSTITUTION JEJU - Moon OFF
53' CHANCE - And there's the opportunity for Jeju to get back on level terms as they break quickly down the right. With a tight ball centered back to Jin, he has an open goal to aim at due to Galekovic being out of position. From nine yards though, Jin sprays his shot across the face. Unbelievable.
Goal
50' GOAL ADELAIDE; JEJU UNITED 1, ADELAIDE UNITED 2 - A dream start to the second half for Adelaide as they set up their corner from the right. With Garrucio sending in a fast delivery to the back post, McGowan rises above two Jeju defenders and heads home into an empty right corner.

HALF TIME; JEJU UNITED 1, ADELAIDE UNITED 1 - That's one half of football accounted for at Jeju World Cup Stadium and how Adelaide United remain in this game is somewhat of a mystery. After amazingly opening the scoring through a thunderbolt from Kim, Adelaide would relinquish the lead no more than two minutes later. Since then, it's been all Jeju as their attack has opened up Adelaide time after time after time. At the break it's Adelaide grimly holding on for life as we reach the interval at 1-1.
Yellow Card
44' YELLOW CARD ADELAIDE - Fresh from having both of his shots saved, Regan now takes one for the team as Mendy looks to break. With the latter having Regan done for pace and position, Regan just bodychecks him to ensure Mendy can't escape.
43' DOUBLE SAVE - Adelaide within millimetres of snatching the lead back as they set up with a corner. With Cirio bending in a pinpoint effort, Regan nods sternly towards home from six yards and sees Chang-Keun Lee instinctively parrying it clear. With the follow up, the ball's sent low to Regan who volleys on-goal and watches as it's cleared off the last line by Jovanovic. Incredible.
40' CHANCE - Not sure what Jovanovic was thinking as an opportunity is squandered for the hosts. With Cruz receiving seven yards out, he can't shoot but instead tees up the former. With his back to goal, Jovanovic tries a blind backheel which misses everything. Mendy was open at the back post too.
38' Good recovery from Mileusic as intricate work down the right sees Chang-Min Lee controlling the ball. Taking matters into his own hands, Lee loads up with a powerful shot which is struck well enough but richochets out of play off a swift-moving Garuccio.
36' Jeju so quick down the flanks at the moment as Park treads his wares. Coming inboard to find Oh, he flashes a ball across field which finds Ahn. Worked back towards the back post, a succession of hurried headers from Adelaide's defence somehow sends the ball clear. 
33' CHANCE - Let off the hook once again are the visitors as again, it's Ahn streaming down the right. Doing Regan for footwork and pace, Ahn lifts a ball towards the back post which deflects back to Mendy. Fortunately for Adelaide, Mendy's attempted volley from 20 yards is well wide of the mark.
Yellow Card
30' YELLOW CARD JEJU - Pretty poor effort to be honest as Ahn, who's been everywhere tonight, slides in over the ball and collects McGree. Even with McGree jockeying the challenge, he's still caught late on the ankle and goes to ground. Ahn apologises but it's extremely poor form.
28' CLEARED - It doesn't appear as though Adelaide have learnt their lesson as Cruz weaves past two on the left wing. With a nifty cross to the back post, Galekovic's caught out of position but has McGowan to thank as the latter clears it away from the line.
25' CHANCE - Hesitation at the drop of the ball almost kills Adelaide here as an early cross comes in from Jeju's left. With Galekovic stopping and starting in his attack on the ball, Ahn closes in from six yards before Garuccio rushes across to turn the ball out. Need to do much, much better there.
22' Slick from Jeju as Cruz slaloms past two Adelaide defenders inside the left side of the box. Caught in two minds whether to cross or shoot, he elects for the former however his effort which is meant for Chang-Min Lee is cut out by Mileusnic.
20' Pinball inside Jeju's penalty area now as a corner for the hosts is whipped in from the right. With McGree initially scuffing his headed clearance, he's lucky that Regan is on hand to help out as Mendy and Cruz lurk with intent.
17' BLOCKED - Jeju are firing on all cylinders now as diagonal passes are starting to cut Adelaide to shreds. With Ahn found, he angles into the right side of the box, shapes to shoot and has the ball nipped clear by McGowan at the last second. Galekovic's a relieved man.
14' Adelaide continue to live dangerously as Jeju now receive a free kick deep inside their right channel. With Chang-Min Lee taking the responsibilities, he lifts a neat shot to the back post where Galekovic rushes off his line. Luckily for the United custodian, the resultant header from Mendy is off-target.
Goal
12' GOAL JEJU; JEJU UNITED 1, ADELAIDE UNITED 1 - The visitors don't enjoy the lead for too long as they go to sleep in defence. With Chang-Min Lee left in space inside the left of the box, he lifts a tame shot to an undefended back post which enables Cruz to nod home from close range.
Goal
9' GOAL ADELAIDE; JEJU UNITED 0, ADELAIDE UNITED 1 - What a start for the Reds as Cirio is able to get himself free down the left after sloppy defensive work from the hosts. With a ferocious volley from 15 yards, his shot hits the woodwork before deflecting to Kim who thunders home a terrific low effort from the edge of the area.
7' CHANCE - Right idea but wrong decision taken here as Ahn again fires on down the right and looks dangerous for the hosts. With Garuccio slipping in his defensive effort, Ahn cuts inside right side of the box, opens up the angle and volleys into side netting. He had team-mates waiting at the back post.
4' CHANCE - Danger signs for Adelaide as Ahn breaks into space down the right and tussles with Garuccio. Able to control the ball into the area, it's Garuccio who leans in with his body in order to send the ball out of play. Terrific last ditch defending from Adelaide.
1' Our referee for tonight's fixture is Ali Hasan Alsamaheeji from Bahrain and after a quick check of his watch, we're underway. It's Adelaide with first usage and moving from right to left..
