F Marinos went into the game on Sunday a point above their South Korean rivals and they were ahead after just four minutes when Joel Chima Fujita won the ball deep in the opposition half and laid it up for Anderson Lopes to side-foot home.

But Kim Bo Kyung's volley from a tight angle leveled things up seven minutes later at Thong Nhat Stadium and Takuma Nishimura could only hit the bar from close range for F Marinos in the 35th minute as they went into the break level.

Gustavo hit the bar with a free-kick for Jeonbuk while Lopes could not take his chances at the other end in the second half but F Marinos secured an all-important draw to take them through.

Kobe, who were already qualified from Group J, drew 2-2 with Kitchee SC of Hong Kong but the result was enough to see them stay top.

Kobe forward Lincoln and Kitchee's Dejan Damjanovic both scored a penalty late in the first half at the Buriram Stadium in Thailand. Former Newcastle United player Yoshinori Muto headed home for Kobe in the 87th minute from a corner but Raul Baena scored in a similar manner in the stoppage time.
