Melbourne Victory fall short against Yokohama

Kevin Muscat's side opened the scoring through James Troisi's penalty, but fell behind by half-time after conceding soft goals to Sho Ito and Kosuke Nakamachi, with Shingo Hyodo appearing to put the game to bed when he netted in the 89th minute. Jimmy Jeggo got one back for the visitors in injury time, but it arrived too late for Australian side to mount a comeback.

The result sees Marinos join Victory on four points in Group G of the competition. Leaders Guangzhou Evergrande went down 1-0 away to second-placed Jeonbuk Motors earlier in the night, with those teams now level on seven points.
