The Kashima Antlers lost 1-0 to the Suwon Bluewings in their final Asian Champions League round-robin match Tuesday night, advancing to the knockout stage as runners-up in Group H, while Cerezo Osaka were eliminated from Group G after losing 3-1 to Guangzhou Evergrande.

The J. League side only needed a draw to finish on top of the group, but a 31st-minute goal from Dejan Damjanovic secured the victory and first place for the South Korean club, which came into the tie at Kashima Stadium two points behind the hosts.
