The AFC Champions League is back today


After a nine-month hiatus, Al-Sharq clubs have returned to continue the football matches in the AFC Champions League due to the new Corona virus, in a combined tournament to be held in the capital Doha Qatar starting today, Wednesday. Eastern clubs meet at the Doha Health Bubble to complete the group stage and then the knockout stages to determine the Eastern champion, who will face Western Iran on December 19 in a match instead of a round-robin match at the Southern Stadium in Doha. . The quarter-finals will be played on December 6 and 7, the quarter-finals on December 10, and the semi-finals on December 13.

Fifteen teams from five countries are taking part: China, South Korea, Australia, Japan and Thailand. Last Friday, the Malaysian Exaltation House withdrew and the results were suspended because it did not get the government’s permission to go to Qatar to complete the competitions. Following the withdrawal of the Malaysian club, three clubs will now take part in Group G, namely Japan’s Vesel Kobe, China’s Gwangju Evergrande and South Korea’s Sun Samsung Bluewings.
Today (12:00 Beirut time) Shanghai Xinhua will meet newcomer Chinese and 2019 A-League runner-up Perth Glory at the opening of the competitions, three days later before meeting South Korean champion Ulsan Hyundai three days later in Group F, then Japan’s FC Tokyo.
