The poster boy of Malaysian football Safawi Rasid broke onto the scene in the 2017 edition and has since starred in the AFC Champions League and earned a move to Portugal. In 2018 against Tampines Rovers, the forward offered a glimpse of his potential, taking one touch before rocketing home and unstoppable effort from distance to open the scoring in a 2-1 group stage win.

With Al Faisaly 2-1 up and the clock ticking down in this group stage game in Lebanon, Khalil Bani Atiyah made sure of the three points. Ahmad Sariweh threads a neat ball through and Atiyah does the rest, cutting inside the defender and coolly curling beyond the goalkeeper to ensure the Jordanian side returned to Amman with a victory.
