Huang Yingjialai lost 2-0 to the opponent in the fifth game of the AFC Group H, and failed to create a surprise in the rematch of the Yokohama Mariners.

Marcos Junior and Hatanaka Shinnosuke were the ones who brought victory to the Japanese representatives.

With this result, Huang Yingjialai still has only 2 points in his hands, which is the same as the score, and the point difference (-4) with Sydney FC is equal, but because he has scored more points than his opponent, he is temporarily ranked.

In the final round, Huang Yingjialai will face Sydney FC. This is also the last chance for teachers and students to win the AFC Champions League this season.

Meanwhile, the victory over Huang Yingjia helped the Yokohama Mariners firmly consolidate the top spot in Group H with 12 points.

Yokohama F. Marinos is currently ranked 4 points higher than Jeonbuk FC but has played more than 1 match. If Jeonbuk FC loses to Sydney FC, the Ban team will soon gain the right to continue.

However, if the results are reversed, Jeonbuk FC and Yokohama Mariners will have to fight for tickets to go straight to the knockout stage in the final.

The Yokohama Mariners were the better team in the game just concluded and put pressure on Huang Yingjialai.

However, it was not until the 36th minute, when Hu Tuan fouled Huiren Nakagawa in the penalty area, that Marcos scored a successful penalty and they scored the opening goal.

In the second half, the Yokohama Mariners were the team with more ball possession, but failed to create a truly dangerous opportunity for Duan Lin’s goal.

However, the Japanese team still scored the second goal in the 83rd minute, and Shinnosuke Hataka scored a header to win 2-0.
