There was late drama in the Asian Champions League Semi final first leg between Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab and South Korea's Seongnam Ilwha. Juan Manuel Olivera and Fisal Al-Sultan scored inside of the last ten minutes to hand the Middle Eastern Club a slender 1-0 advantage going into the second leg.

Seongnam traveled to the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh and they started the brighter before taking a quick the lead in the fourth minute. Colombian forward Mauricio Molina slammed home a left footed strike in off the post from outside the area.

Ten minutes later and Al Shabab found an equalizer. Uruguayan Juan Manuel Olivera found time to lift the ball over the onrushing Seongnam keeper Jung Sung-ryong.

It would be the South Korean's who would take an advantage into halftime when Jo Jae-Cheol sprung the offside trap before beating Al - Shebab's Waleed Abdullah between the sticks.

The teams would continue their free scoring exploits in the second half and whatever Al- Shabab's manager said in the dressing room worked. Nasser Al Shamrani's shot drew the sides level 2-2 in the 57th Minute.

The momentum changed back once more for Seongnam when Mauricio Molina scored his second of the game moving his side ahead three two.

But with time running out, Juan Manuel Olivera delighted the home fans. His initial header was saved but there was little Seongnam's keeper could do with the follow up.

However, with less than a minute remaining, Al Shabab found the breakthrough they were looking for. Fisal Al Sultan latched onto Autef's pass and slipped the ball home to make it 3-2 on the night. The Suadi Arabian side hold a slender one goal advantage when they travel to Seongnam on October the 20th who scored three away goals.
