Chinese Super League side Zhejiang FC defeated Thai side Buriram United 3-2 in the fifth match of the AFC Asian Champions League Group H Qualifiers for the 2023-24 season at the Olympic Sports Center in Huzhou, China on Monday. Buriram (2W3L, +0) are in third place, while Zhejiang (2W3L, -4) are in fourth.
The game was a physical affair, with both teams exchanging seven yellow cards. There were some former K League players in the game. Leonardo, who won the championship with Ulsan Hyundai last season, started for Jeonju and scored the equalizer in the 27th minute to make it 1-1. Kim Min-hyuk, a defender who played for Seongnam last season, was Buriram’s starting center back.월카지노
After the game, there was a problem. Buriram was hit by a Chinese player and fell to the ground. This angered Buriram’s Azerbaijani striker Ramil Sheydayev, who charged at Zhejiang midfielder Zhang Jiaji. The Chinese players then beat Sheydayev in a group. Buriram players also got into the mix, and the field quickly turned into a brawl.
It took a minute for the situation to calm down after security was called to the stadium. However, the excited Chinese home fans chanted “losers” at the Thai players. The Chinese fans defended the Chinese players who had been beaten.
In the end, a number of players were disciplined for their role in the violence. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced on Nov. 11 that “Zhejiang’s Yao Junsheng and Leonardo have been suspended for eight matches. Buriram’s Sheidayev is also banned for eight matches,” the AFC announced.
In addition, Zhejiang player Dong Yujun and tactical analyst Wang Jian were banned for six games. Zhejiang was also fined $10,000.
Buriram, who participated in the brawl, did not escape punishment. Leon James and Chidiba each received six-game bans. Buriram was also fined $10,000.
As a result, Yao Junsheng, Leonardo, and Dong Yujun will be ineligible to play in the AFC Champions League.
