Shabab Al Ahli vs Istiqlol
Asia – AFC Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 27 April 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Al Rashid Stadium.
With just two match-days remaining, tensions are running high in Group A. No clear-cut contender has risen in the group yet for the top-most spot, and for the reason it could be stated that the next two game weeks are going to be fierce for these squads.
A win is a must for either if they are serious about progressing to the Round of 16, and we could infer that offense will be given predominance – especially considering the fact that the other two teams will be attempting a shot at the first position.
Both the Lions as well as the Red Knights have been scoring goals in huge numbers in the past several weeks, be it at home or on the road.
Likely, expect a high-scoring thriller this Tuesday at the Al Rashid Stadium.

Mahdi Ali’s men were unbeaten in 41 of their former 45 overall matches, and they had won 16 of their preceding 22 games.
They have also lost at home just twice since February of 2020, and they have won nine of their former eleven appearances at this venue.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won nine of their previous eleven overall fixtures, and they had scored a total of 28 goals in the process.
