Time: 22:55 (GMT+8) on February 18th

Venue: Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium

Competition: 2020 AFC Champions League

Group D of the 2020 AFC Champions League will witness the much-anticipated match between the UAE side Al Ain and the Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr.

Both teams are now standing at the 2nd position at their respective leagues. Al Nassr is currently in a superb form in the league. They only lost 1 in their nearest 13 matches in the Saudi Pro League. Adding to this dominant form is the clinical striker from Morocco, @A. Hamdallah@. He has 16 goals in 18 matches until now of the season. The striker also scored the opener in their first match of the AFC Champions League against the Qatari side Al Sadd. Sadly, they can not maintain the scoreline as the team drew 2-2 at the end.

Al Nassr will travel to the UAE to encounter their opponent Al Ain. The team is currently scoring the most goals of the league, with 40 times finding the back of the net in 16 matches. Their amazing goal scoring form is mainly due to the lethal striker @K. Laba@, who has 17 goals for the team now. However, they can not deliver their form to the group stage of the AFC Champions League. They were thrashed by the Iranian side Sepahan at the opening match of the tournament. Although possessed more ball in the match, they were down to 4 goals at the final whistle.

This will be the first time these two teams meet at the AFC Champions League.

Although playing at the opposition's home turf, Al Nassr is having a slight advantage prior to the match. With plenty of superstars in the team, coupled with Al Ain's poor form at the AFC Champions League, Al Nassr will hope to find their first 3 points in this year tournament.
