Last two matches: WL
The Iraqi League giant remains third on the log with one win and a loss in two matches, they have scored three and conceded three so far in this tournament.
They started brightly on matchday one as they defeated Jazira Abu Dhabi, despite not having control of the game, their game plan worked perfectly for them when they won (1-2) in that particular encounter. On matchday two, the bookies favoured them ahead of Mumbai City but the Indian based team pulled one of the greatest stunts in the history of the AFC Champions League as the newcomers stunned them (1-2).
It's going to be a war in this group because only one team qualifies in this phase, so every game must be treated like a final.
