Kuala Lumpur: The dust has barely settled on Matchday One as the second round of 2020 AFC Champions League Group Stage fixtures comes within a week of the openers, with 10 teams in the East Zone set to face off.
Having sat out last week's fixtures, Korea Republic duo FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung Bluewings, Australian pair Perth Glory and Sydney FC and China PR's Beijing FC all make their first starts in this year's competition.
Preview MD2 - Group E: Chiangrai United (THA) vs Beijing FC (CHN)
Chiang Rai: Thai champions Chiangrai United will host Beijing FC in the first-ever AFC Champions League home tie at The Power of Chiangrai Stadium on Tuesday.
After a narrow 1-0 loss away to Melbourne Victory in their debut in the 2020 AFC Champions League, Chiangrai United are set to appear in the home debut when China's Beijing FC journey to northern Thailand.
Group A - MD2: Al Ahli Saudi FC (KSA) 2-1 Esteghlal FC (IRN)
Kuwait City: A Salman Al Muwashar brace helped Al Ahli Saudi FC earn a 2-1 win over Esteghlal FC on Matchday Two of the 2020 AFC Champions League Group A on Monday.
Al Ahli entered the game led by interim boss Mazen Bahkali, after the club had earlier in the day announced the termination of manager Christian Gross’ contract on the back of poor results in the Saudi Pro League.
Group B - MD2: Pakhtakor (UZB) 3-0 Shahr Khodro FC (IRN)
Tashkent: An Igor Sergeev brace and a late Sherzod Azamov header helped Pakhtakor brush aside Shahr Khodro FC 3-0 to record their second consecutive win in the 2020 AFC Champions League Group A on Monday.
Shahr Khodro came into their second-ever AFC Champions League game dreaming of collecting their first point or scoring their first goal in the group stage, but at the end of the 90 minutes, they would have neither as the home side added another three points to their haul after having opened their campaign with a 2-1 win over Shabab Al Ahli Dubai last week.
