Al Jazira vs Persepolis: Preview and Predictions

Al Jazira vs Persepolis
AFC Champions League
Date: Monday, 7 May 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Al Jazira made a huge progress from last term when they took only two points in the group phase of the AFC Champions League. The United Arab Emirates outfit managed to finish on top of Qatari Al Gharafa thanks to the better head to head record in the Group A as teams ended the campaign lock on points at the second place.

Nevertheless, the team led by Henk ten Cate will face a huge test on the first obstacle in the knockout stage where they have to play last term’s semifinalists Persepolis. The outfit from Iran are massive favourites over two legs, but it will be interesting to see if UAE champions can at least make it an interesting tie with the result in the first leg in front of the home crowd on Monday afternoon.

The two sides did not have the chance to lock horns in the past.

Al Jazira vs Persepolis: Prediction

Persepolis are very tough to break down and Al Jazira might have huge troubles finding the net here given the side from Iran conceded only three goal en route to topping the Group C. Branko Ivankovic’s side clinched a 1-0 victory over Al Sadd in the crucial match in the battle for the first place in the group three weeks ago.

The main task for the visitors will be to stop two of Al Jazira’s three scorers in the group stage. Al Ahmed Mabkhout and Romarinho notched four goals each so far in the competition, but they will have hard times bringing this form to the knockout stages against such well-organized defensive line of Persepolis’.

We expect the visitors to be in control and keep it a low-scoring contest, in which case their chances fo success would grow rapidly. You can back the Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.95. The visitors are 2.00 to clinch the victory which also looks to be a decent option given the obvious gulf in quality between the two teams.

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.95

Persepolis to win @ 2.00.
