South Korea vs. Japan: A classic in Asian Champions League

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) The second-leg semifinal of the Asian Champions League between Suwon Bluewings and Kashima Antlers offers a classic South Korea vs. Japan showdown.

Kashima came back from a two-goal deficit at home in early October to defeat Suwon 3-2 and take a narrow lead into the second leg in South Korea.

Suwon, a two-time winner of the Champions League's predecessor - the Asian Club Championship - has prepared for the second leg by reappointing Seo Jung-won as the head coach. The former international resigned in August but returned to the club last week.
