Your host for the day is Neellohit Ray, and I will be providing you with all of the match’s real-time updates! Remain tuned!
Al Nassr’s debut in the AFC Champions League was quite promising. They were one of the favourites to win the European championship this time around, and they started out strong. With a commanding 2-0 victory over Persepolis, they ascended to the top of the group standings.
Istiqlol, their upcoming foe, were able to tie their opening match against Al-Duhail. Cristiano Ronaldo’s team is the only one in charge as a result of their achievement. Istiqlol is aware that Al Nassr is the group favourite and that they must play well if they hope to defeat them.
The Saudi squad and officials refused to enter the stadium, which included busts of Qasem Soleimani, and the AFC Champions League match between Al-Ittihad and Sepahan of Iran has been formally called off. In January 2020, an American drone attack killed Soleimani, who oversaw the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
The Saudi champs were set to begin their second Group C match of the competition on Monday at 7 p.m., but they made it clear they wouldn’t play until the statues were taken down. The Saudi delegation left the stadium right away to go to the airport and return to Saudi Arabia after asking for a 30-minute wait to assess the situation.
