Ricardo Goulart strikes twice as Guangzhou Evergrande qualify for AFC Champions League quarter-finals
Ricardo Goulart struck twice as Guangzhou Evergrande moved into the last eight once again with a 2-0 home win over Seongnam of South Korea on Wednesday.
The reigning Chinese champions advanced to the quarter-finals for the fourth consecutive year 3-2 on aggregate after the Chinese side overturned last week's 2-1 loss. Goulart, signed from Cruzeiro earlier this year, converted a 21st-minute penalty to put Guangzhou ahead on away goals. Goulart expertly added a second in the 57th minute with a brilliant flicked near-post header.
