Al Duhail (2nd)
Last two matches: LW
Al Duhail lost focus in the opening match which saw them lose to Al Taawoun (1-2). They were toothless in front of goals and they were punished by the Saudi based team.
They did bounce back against Sepahan as Micheal Olunga scored the only goal in that encounter.
Before the defeat against Al Taawoun, Al Duhail was on a ten-game unbeaten run, winning eight and drawing two. They finished 2nd behind Al Sadd in the Qatar Stars League and won the Emir Cup.
With just two games played out of six, all the teams in Group D are tied on three points and a win for Al Duhail will see them move straight to the top.
Last two matches: LW
Pakhtakor also had a rough start, they were beaten by Sepahan despite taking the lead in the 28th minute, they managed to resist the visitors from scoring in the first half but were heavily beaten in the second half as Sepahan scored three unreplied goals to secure all the points.
Just like top teams do, Pakhtakor bounced back and dust off their first match disappointment to get a win against Al Taawoun in a match they were tagged the underdogs.
If they manage to get a win here, they will be the first Uzbekistan team to beat a Qatar based team.
