MANILA--It was a simply a Tuesday night to forget for United Clark.

The reigning PFL champion suffered what might be its biggest defeat yet after K-League 1 club Daegu went on a tear for a 7-0 win in the AFC Champions League group stages at the Milliy Stadium in Tashkent.

United Clark was actually doing a good job of keeping Daegu away from the goal for the first 20 minutes by slowing things down.

Daegu broke the ice in the 23rd minute when Cesinha Dos Santos found a space at the right side of the goal and struck the ball in from the center of the penalty area.

Edgar Da Silva then pounced on a huge defensive blunder by United Clark by converting the goal off a Lee Keun-Ho steal in the 42nd minute to make it 2-0.

Dos Santos then played the facilitator just before halftime when he found Kum Jun-Hyuk off a free kick, and Kim headed the ball past United Clark keeper Anthony Pinthus as Daegu entered halftime 3-0 ahead.

An Yong-Woo made the most out of his free kick in the 62nd minute as his set piece hit nothing but the net as Daegu moved up to a 4-0 cushion.

An then made it a brace 10 minutes later after scoring on a goal from a tough angle with Lee providing the assist again.

Despite already winning, Daegu still put up a strong endgame as Park Han-Bin struck in the 90th minute to make it 6-0.

Jeong Chi-in, who provided the dish to Park, sealed the win with a penalty shot that actually ended the match.
