FC Seoul beats Gamba Osaka 2-1 in ACL

FC Seoul scored in stoppage time to defeat Japan's Gamba Osaka 2-1 on Wednesday in a must-win Asian Champions League Group F match for the South Korean club.
Seoul and China's Shandong Luneng _ which was playing away at Indonesia's Sriwijaya later Wednesday _ were level on points coming into the final matchday for the group, with only one of them able to join Gamba in the round of 16.
Seoul was given little chance of snatching a result away to the reigning champions, and fell behind on 64 minutes when Gamba's 17-year-old Takashi Usami scored.
However Dejan Damjanovic equalized 16 minutes from time and Kim Han-yoon snatched the winner in the second minute of stoppage time.
Gamba, who were without key suspended duo Yasuhito Endo and Lucas, finished top of the group despite the defeat, and will meet J-League rival Kawasaki Frontale in the round of 16.
