In the West Zone, only one place in the 2019 AFC Champions League Round of 16 is yet to be decided. It will be directly contested between Pakhtakor and Al Ahli at King Abdullah Sport City on Monday.
With Al Sadd having already booked their ticket to the knock-out stage from Group D, Pakhtakor travel to Jeddah for what is essentially a cup tie against 2012 runners-up Al Ahli.
The Uzbek side sit second in the standings on eight points. A 1-0 victory over Persepolis in the previous Matchday eliminated the Iranians from the competition, leaving Pakhtakor in need of one point in Saudi Arabia.
Their opponents, Al Ahli, are third place with six points. Only the three points today will hand them a knock-out stage ticket for the second year running.
Al Ahli and Pakhtakor met twice in the 2005 AFC Champions League. Al Ahli won 3-0 in Jeddah with current club captain Hussein Abdulghani among the scorers, while Pakhtakor emerged 2-1 winners in Tashkent. Earlier this season, Marat Bikmaev gave Pakhtakor a 1-0 win on Matchday Two.
