AFC Cup: Last 16 wrap

Here's a breakdown of the scores as we get them:

South China (HKG) 2-0 JSW Bengaluru (IND)
A brace by Daniel McBreen put South China in the AFC Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over Bengaluru FC on Tuesday at Mongkok Stadium.

McBreen opened the scoring in the 28th minute with a penalty after Curtis Osano fouled Mahama Awal in the area. 

The second goal was scored in the 58th minute when Che Runqiu crossed low into the six-yard box for McBreen to stab home to make the score 2-0.

In the end South China thoroughly deserved their win having chances to increase the score line only to be let down by poor finishing. 

 

Istiqlol (TJK) 1-1 Al Wahda (SYR) (Istiqlol win 4-2 pens)

Istiqlol beat Al Wahda 4-2 on penalties after the sides were tied at 1-1 after extra-time to reach the AFC Cup quarter-finals in their match played at Republican Central Stadium.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 21st minute through a Raslan Al Kurdi header, but the lead was short-lived when he scored an own-goal in the 33rd minute while trying to clear the ball only to give Istiqlol their equaliser.

With the scores tied at 1-1 after extra-time, the match went to a penalty-shootout which Istiqlol won 4-2 thanks to a save by goalkeeper Osama Omari and a missed penalty by Mahmoud Khadouj.  

 

Al Wehdat (JOR) 0-1 Qadsia SC (KUW)

Qadsia SC beat Al Wehdat 1-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the AFC Cup played at Prince Hasan Stadium in Jordan.

The goal was scored in the 76th minute when Khaled Ibrahim's shot hit the post and crossed the line after taking a deflection off the shoulder of Al Wehdat goalkeeper Amer Shafi.

Al Wehdat dominated in the second half, creating some decent scoring opportunities but could not find the back of the net.
