Emanuel: Al Ain didn’t deserve to lose to Al Nassr
Al Ain: Al Ain FC head coach Pedro Emanuel said his side's AFC Champions League 2020 Group D 2-1 defeat to Al Nassr on Tuesday was undeserved.
Omar Yaseen gave UAE's Al Ain the lead in the first half but Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr made a second-half comeback to level the tie through Mukhtar Ali before Abderazzak Hamdallah netted the winner 10 minutes before the end at the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.
Doha: Al Sadd SC head coach Xavi Hernandez praised the performance of his side in their 3-0 victory against Sepahan FC in an AFC Champions League 2020 Group D tie at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium on Tuesday.
After a scoreless first half, a brace from Hassan Al Haydos after Akram Afif had opened the scoring early in the second period gave Qatar's Al Sadd their first win of the competition, having played to a 2-2 draw with Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr on Matchday One.
Analysis: Pakhtakor transfer domestic dominance to ACL
Tashkent: Last year, Pakhtakor ran away with the Uzbekistan Super League title, finishing 20 points above their nearest rivals. Although it's early days in the 2020 AFC Champions League, the Tashkent side are continuing that form in Asia.
Pakhtakor have lost just once in the last 26 competitive ties and Monday's 3-0 win over Islamic Republic of Iran's Shahr Khodro was another example of just why Shota Arveladze's side have been in such fine fettle.
