21′ – Osmar tries to curl one into the top corner for FC Seoul, but his effort is wide of the goal.
25′ – 25 minutes played and well done Kedah for holding FC Seoul goalless so far. They have looked relatively comfortable doing that as well.

30′ – Half an hour played. And it’s still FC SEOUL 0-0 KEDAH FA!
32′ – WHAT A CHANCE FOR KEDAH! Tchetche Kipre tries to lob the goalkeeper from the edge of the box, but Yu Sang-hun pulls off a brilliant save to deny Kedah! Best chance of the game for either sides so far!
36′ – DISASTER FOR KEDAH! Renan Alves handles a corner kick inside the area and FC Seoul is awarded a PENALTY here. It is also a RED CARD for Alves as he sees his second yellow card!
39′ GOAL! FC SEOUL 1-0 KEDAH FA!
And FC Seoul are ahead as Park Chu-young converts from the spot! A very silly goal to give away from the Malaysia Super League side.
42′ – DOUBLE SAVE FROM SHAHRIL SA’ARI first to deny Park Dong-jin and then Park Chu-young! Brilliant!
45′ – Two minutes added on.
HALF TIME: FC SEOUL 1-0 KEDAH FA!

And it is 2-0 to the home side FC Seoul as Park Dong-jin heads in from a cross! It looks like there is no way back for the 10-man Kedah here!
51′ – GOAL! FC Seoul 2-1 KEDAH FA!
But wait a minute! Kedah now have pulled a goal back as Baddrol Bakhtiar’s free kick is headed into his own net by FC Seoul defender Osmar!

90′ – Three minutes added on
