Al Ahli vs Esteghlal
Asia – AFC Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 27 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: King Abdullah Sports City.
Both these teams have posted a total of seven points each, and are placed second and third in the table.
Toppers Al Duhail have eight points against their name, and seem like the strongest contenders to qualify for the Round of 16 – the reason being, they are pitted against Al Shorta this Tuesday, who have lost all of their games till now.
As such, a win is a must for the Classy as well as the Capital Blues at any cost, and we can count on them to give their absolute best this match-day.
Either of these squads have also been scoring goals in huge numbers, and importantly their h2h meetings over the years have also been goal-fests.
Likely, expect a high-scoring thriller at the King Abdullah Sports City.

Laurentiu Reghecampf’s men had scored two or more goals in four of the past five overall games, and had failed to find the back of the net just once in the last 16 fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number had scored a total of 11 goals from their former four fixtures, and they had failed to find the back of the net in just three of their preceding seventeen games.
