Al Jazeera vs Al Riffa match preview, predictions, possible lineups and h2h results of the AFC Cup.

Al Jazeera vs Al Riffa match information:

Time: 23:00 (GMT+8) on February 25th

Venue: Amman International Stadium

Competition: 2020 AFC Cup

Al Jazeera suffered from a narrow 0-1 defeat to the Omani Dhofar in their opening match of the AFC Cup season, which dragged them to the bottom two of group C. The Jordanian side have performed horribly in the pre-season ties with 3 losses and just 1 draw in the year 2020.

Last season, the Red Devils reached as far as the West Asia Zonal final and only lost to the later champions Al Ahed. Al Jazeera will have to improve fast to just match that feat let alone aim for the championship.

Al Riffa’s first match did not end in their favor as well since they lost 1-2 to the Kuwaiti side Al Qadsia. However, this defeat was not much of a surprise, given that Their Excellencies have demonstrated an unstable form with a win followed by a defeat of the last 4 games.

It seems that the 5-year absence from the AFC Cup has taken its toll on the Bahraini side as they are struggling in their return.

The fans can expect a competitive, high pace match between Al Jazeera and Al Riffa as both want to bounce back from their bad opener.

Al Jazeera vs Al Riffa potential lineups:

Al Jazeera: N. Zaid, O. Azmi, J. Khattab, M. Al Jabari, M. Al Mardi, N. Al Rawabdeh, I. Sami, A. Mohannad, L. Paiva, A. Olwan, N. Mowafi

Al Riffa: S. Husain Alasam, G. Soriola, M. Abduljabbar Darwish, K. Al Aswad, A. Alshirah, H. Al Shamsan, S. Isa, A. Ebrahim, S. Taher Saeid, A. Fardan, H. Haroon Saeed.

Al Jazeera vs Al Riffa score predictions: 1-1
