Tianjin Teda 0-0 Pohang Steelers

Pohang Steelers coach Sergio Farias believes the Korea Republic side will qualify for the knockout stage of the AFC Champions League even though they were held to a goalless draw by Tianjin Teda.

The visitors dominated the Group H game at Tianjin Teda Stadium with Brazilian striker Denilson almost netting a winner 13 minutes from time as his long-range effort hit the post.

Although they failed to convert their chances, Pohang edged closer to the last 16 and are now four points ahead of Tianjin and Central Coast Mariners with two games to go.

But after a scoreless first 45 minutes, Brazilian forward Juninho opened the scoring 30 seconds into the second half, firing home after Jong Tae-se’s header had been saved.
