Al Taawon vs Persepolis – AFC Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 4 of Group C continues with Al Taawon taking on Persepolis on Friday the 18th of September, 2020, at the Education City Stadium, in Doha, Qatar.

Al Taawon traveled to Qatar for this mini tournament topping the group table on six points from their first two matches. After losing to Persepolis on Tuesday, they now have… company at the top of the table (Al Duhail), and Persepolis just two points behind them. This gives you an idea how important it is for them to earn at least a draw in this game, so as to keep the Iranian side at least two points below them on the table. Their current form reads; LWLLL. Coach Abdullah Assiri played a 4-2-3-1 formation on Tuesday, with Brazilian goalkeeper Cássio between the sticks, and Australian striker Mitchell Duke up front. Truth is, Al Taawon could have taken the lead in the first half, they missed an incredible chance in the 35th minute, had another good moment soon after that, and only conceded in the 83rd minute, all details that left them feeling that… they deserved better.

For Persepolis, winning Tuesday’s game was a must. Did they fully deserve that 1-0? Maybe not, but they couldn’t care less. On four points from three matches, this is their golden opportunity to leapfrog Al Taawon, and turn into favourites to finish in the group’s top two. Their current form reads; WLWDL. Coach Yahya Golmohammadi played a 4-2-3-1 formation on Tuesday. Their winner in the 83rd minute came from centre-back Shoja Khalilzadeh, from a set-piece (corner-kick). If they are to beat Al Taawon for a second time in 3-4 days, Persepolis need to play better than on Tuesday. They were somewhat lucky to earn all three points, and usually you don’t get lucky twice in a matter of days against the same rival...

Tuesday’s game was the first ever between these two.

The prediction here on Tuesday, was a 1-0 Persepolis win, which came good. This time, things feel different...

A 1-1 draw is predicted at full-time.

Date: Friday, 18th of September, 2020.

Venue: Education City Stadium

Kick-off time: 20:00 (GMT+2).
