Ulsan Hyundai's Oh Se-hun scored twice as the holders set a new record for consecutive victories in the Asian Champions League with a 3-0 win over Kaya-Iloilo in Bangkok on Friday.

The win was the club's 12th in a row in a run that extends back to last year's title success in Qatar and sees the South Koreans break the record they set in 2014.

Ulsan leads Group F on nine points from three games, three points ahead of Thailand's BG Pathum United, which beat Viettel of Vietnam 2-0 to maintain its push to make the knockout stage.

Oh gave Ulsan the lead 12 minutes into its meeting with the club from the Philippines when he side-footed home after a jinking run down the left by Valeri Qazaishvili.

The 22-year-old striker netted again five minutes before halftime when he headed in Hong Chul's free kick and Qazaishvili made sure of the points three minutes into the second half.
