Kuala Lumpur: After taking a three-week break at the midway point of this season's AFC Champions League Group Stage, the 16 remaining West Zone teams return for Matchday Four and a crucial round of fixtures that kick off on Monday.
The top two sides in Group B will go head-to-head on Monday as Esteghlal Khouzestan travel to Lekhwiya, while third-placed Al Fateh will look to close the gap on the leaders when they face bottom side Al Jazira.
Iranian champions Esteghlal Khouzestan have yet to lose on the continent but will face their toughest task yet in Doha, where they meet another unbeaten side in Lekhwiya after the pair drew 1-1 three weeks ago.
Al Fateh secured a first-ever AFC Champions League victory by seeing off Al Jazira 3-1 last time out and will know a win in Abu Dhabi would put them in a strong position with two group games remaining, while defeat for Al Jazira would confirm their elimination.
