J. League leaders Urawa Reds secured their passage into the last 16 of the Asian Champions League with a game to spare on Wednesday night after a 6-1 drubbing of 2014 champions Western Sydney Wanderers in Group F.

Reds, who hammered Wanderers 4-0 back in February in their opening game in Australia, needed only a draw to be sure of a place in the knockout stage, but first-half goals from Takahiro Sekine, Zlatan Ljubijankic and Tadanari Lee put the home side in control at Saitama Stadium.
