Preview - Group C: Hilal Alquds (PLE) v Nejmeh SC (LBN)
Muharraq Stadium: Hilal Alquds and Nejmeh SC know only a win will do when they face off in Group C of the AFC Cup™ 2022 on Saturday.
With both having opened their campaigns with draws, three points at the Muharraq Stadium will boost their hopes of topping the group and sealing the sole automatic spot into the West Zonal Semi-finals.
Preview - Group A: Kuwait SC (KUW) v Al Seeb Club (OMA)
Seeb: Head coach Boris Bunjak believes his knowledge of opponents Kuwait SC will help his Al Seeb side get a result in the crucial AFC Cup™ 2022 Group A clash on Saturday.
The Serbian spent seven years coaching several clubs in the Kuwait Premier League, including a brief stint as interim manager at Kuwait SC in 2017-18, before joining Al Seeb in December 2021 and leading them to their second Oman Pro League title.
Having started their debut AFC Cup campaign with a 1-0 win over Jableh, Bunjak’s men go into Saturday’s clash against last year’s West Zonal Finalists with a chance of sealing a place in the next round with a game to spare should they get the three points.
Preview - Group D: ATK Mohun Bagan (IND) v Bashundhara Kings (BAN)
Kolkata: ATK Mohun Bagan will focus only on the positives when they take on Bashundhara Kings in Group D of the AFC Cup 2022™ at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium on Saturday.
ATK Mohun Bagan's bid to advance to the Inter-Zone semi-finals suffered a blow when they fell 4-2 to fellow Indian side Gokulam Kerala FC on Matchday One.
With only the top team to advance to the Inter-Zone semi-finals, defeat against Bangladesh's Bashundhara Kings - who defeated Maziya Sports & Recreation Club in their opener - would mean early elimination for Juan Ferrando's side.
