Al Ahli vs Esteghlal match information

Time: 23:30 (GMT+8) on February 17th

Venue: Jaber Al Ahmad International Stadium

Competition: 2020 AFC Champions League

Last week, Al Ahli lost 2 points in the last minutes of the match against Al Wahda because of the late goal of South Korean player Rim Chang Woo. Although they dominated the game, they could not score more than one goal, which made them unable to win the match.

However, things can change in the next game against the Iranian club Esteghlal. Moreover, Al Ahli recently signed with German midfielder Marko Marin, who used to play for Chelsea to compete at both national and continental competitions.

Thanks to the appearance of Marko Marin, Al Ahli fans can believe in positive results in the following games. Meanwhile, Esteghlal almost withdrew from the AFC Champions League this season before changing the mind to continue playing in this competition.

After playing as the away team in the first match, they continue moving to Jaber Al Ahmad International Stadium to face Al Ahli.

It will be a very difficult match for them because compared to Al Shorta, the team that they drew in the first game, the results of Al Ahli at continental tournaments are more impressive when they advanced to the final match in two events.

Moreover, they need to win this game to have the advantage ahead of the following matches.

Al Ahli vs Esteghlal potential lineups:

Al Ahli: Yasser Al Mosailem, Saeed Al Mowalad, Hussein Abdulghani, Mohammed Al-Khabrani, Lucas Lima, Josef de Souza, Elvis Saric, Marko Marin, Youcef Belaili, Djaniny, Omar Al Somah.

Esteghlal: Hossein Hosseini, Nikolay Bodurov, Hrvoje Milic, Vouria Ghafouri, Roozbeh Cheshmi, Ali Karimi, Farshid Esmaeili, Ali Dashti, Mehdi Ghaedi, Morteza Tabrizi, Cheick Diabate.
