Australia forward Nathan Burns was on the scoresheet in FC Tokyo's AFC Champions League win while Trent Sainsbury played a full game as Jiangsu Suning won their group game against Erik Paartalu's Jeonbuk Motors on Matchday 2.

Goalkeeper Bui Tan Truong had a moment to forget as Binh Duong fell 3-1 at FC Tokyo in the ACL.

Tokyo, who lost their Group E opener to Jeonbuk, fell behind to Nguyen Anh Duc's first-half opener, but the hosts were level five minutes after the break through Socceroos attacker Burns.

Tan Truong then kept out Francisco Sandaza's penalty, only to go from hero to zero with a horror moment in the 68th minute.

A corner from the right looked easy enough for Tan Truong to deal with, but the goalkeeper misjudged his punch and headed into his own goal - Ryoichi Maeda's late strike compounding the Vietnamese side's misery.

Jiangsu Suning's high-profile Brazilian Alex Teixeira and Ramires had contrasting fortunes in a 3-2 win over K League Classic champions Jeonbuk Motors.

While Teixeira scored his first goal for the club, Ramires was sent off. Socceroos defender Sainsbury was joined on the pitch on the pitch by countryman Paartalu on 67 minutes.

Teixeira, who along with Ramires joined Suning during a close-season of huge spending in the Chinese Super League, opened the scoring with a low 20-yard drive that found the bottom-left corner.

Lee Dong-gook levelled shortly after the hour, only for quickfire goals from Jo and Wu Xi to put Suning in control.

Kim Shin-wook halved the arrears in the 86th minute and there was more drama to follow when former Chelsea midfielder Ramires was harshly shown a straight red card in injury time for a shove on Lee as tempers flared.

In Group F, Adriano scored a second-half hat-trick as FC Seoul hammered Japanese champions Sanfrecce Hiroshima 4-1.
