South China vs Johor Darul Ta'zim - Mong Kok Stadium (Hong Kong), 1300 BST

Cameroon striker Mahama Awal scored a precious away goal for South China as the Hong Kong side fought back from a goal down to force a 1-1 draw with newly crowned Malaysia Super League champions Johor Darul Ta’zim in the first leg of their AFC Cup quarter-final at Stadium Tan Sri Dato' Haji Yunos three weeks ago.

Following a goalless first half, Johor took the lead shortly after the break when Argentinean striker Luciano Figueroa converted from the penalty spot. South China equalised against the run of play in the 63rd minute, however, to set up mouth watering tie in HK.

Johor had played eight games in 24 days ahead of the first leg and coach Mario Gomez felt that punishing schedule took its toll on his players and so was happy to come away with a draw.

"We have played eight games in the past 24 days and were tired after 70 minutes of the match, we could have lost, so I am satisfied with the 1-1 draw," the Argentinean told

With their domestic campaign having drawn to a close and a three week gap between legs, Johor will fresh and ready to cancel South China's away goal advantage in the return leg at Hong Kong's Mong Kok Stadium.

Jaish vs Al Qadsia - Al Kuwait Sports Club Stadium (Kuwait City), 1700 BST

Al Qadsia take a commanding 3-0 lead into the second leg of their last eight encounter with Syria's Al Jaish on Tuesday evening.

Qadsia SC coach Rashed Al Bedaih hailed his team’s impressive first leg performance as the reigning champions made themselves favourites to progress the last four.

Fahd Al Ebrahim handed the Kuwaitis the perfect start before goals from Doris Fuakuputu and Bader Al Motawaa gave them comfortable margin of victory ahead of the second leg.

"The match was great for us as the players put in an excellent performance in addition to securing a big win," said Al Bedaih. "At the same time, we didn’t concede any goals and this is very important at this stage of the competition."

The Kuwaitis defeated Arbil in a penalty shootout to claim the title in 2014 and it's difficult to see them missing out on back-to-back semi-final appearances at the very least.

Kitchee FC vs Al Kuwait - Mong Kok Stadium (Hong Kong), 1300 BST

Hong Kong's Kitchee FC have little more than pride to play for in the return leg of their quarter-final tie with Al Kuwait on Wednesday afternoon after they fell to a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Mohammad Ebrahim's side in Kuwait last month.

Ebrahim felt Kuwait's first-half performance was instrumental as the three-time AFC Cup champions demolished their opponents to all but book their place in the semi-finals.

"I’m extremely happy we recorded such a big win," he said. "It was a great achievement for us because we won against a team that has several good players and they are one of the better teams in the competition. 
"We managed to seal the win in the first half by scoring three time and this allowed us to increase the pressure on Kitchee in the second half. The win will give us a big boost and hopefully we can continue our impressive performance in the second leg."

Rogerinho, who was a key figure in the club's AFC Cup triumphs in 2012 and 2013, scored a brace while Fahad Al Enezi, Chadi Hammami, Vinicius Lopes and Ali Al Kandari also got on the score sheet and there could be a few more goals to enjoy in this tie yet.

Pahang vs Istiqlol - Stadium Darulmakmur (Kuantan), 1345 BST

FC Istiklol put one foot in the semi-finals of the 2015 AFC Cup with a 4-0 win over Malaysia’s Pahang FA on August 26.

The Tajikistan champions took control on their quarter-final tie with goals from Dilshod Vasiev (2), Mahdi Chahjooei and Khurshed Makhmudov and though coach Mubin Ergashev was thoroughly pleased with his side's display he insists they won't be taking anything for granted when they visit Malaysia.

"It’s only the first match," he said. "We have the second leg in Malaysia and I don't think we re already in the semi-final. We should be careful. The team will prepare well for the second match. 
"All the players played well. They continued to show attacking football after goals also. We are very close to an historical event, but there is one more step. But we won’t forget there is a second game. Pahang will try for their fans in Malaysia, but our aim is to continue in the tournament."
