Navbahor Namangan and Al Ittihad will trade tackles in the first leg of their AFC Champions League round-of-16 tie at the Markaziy Stadium on Thursday (February 15th).

The hosts booked their spot at this stage courtesy of their runners-up finish in Group D as one of the best runners-up. They concluded their group stage campaign with a 2-1 comeback away victory over Indian outfit Mumbai City FC. They went behind to Nasser El Khayati’s 15th-minute strike but quickly turned the game around before halftime with goals from Jamshid Iskanderov and Jovan Dokic.

Al Ittihad are coming into this game with a comfortable 3-0 away victory over Al Taee in the Saudi Professional League. Abderrazak Hamdallah, Faisal Al Ghamdi and Romarinho found the back of the net to guide their side to victory.

The People’s Club will turn their focus to the continent and qualified to this stage as Group C winners. The winner of this tie will face Sepahan or Al Hilal in the quarterfinal.

Navbahor vs Al Ittihad Prediction

Navbahor defied expectations to finish second in their group and subsequently make history. However, they have not been in competitive action since wrapping up their group stage campaign two months ago and their lack of match fitness could be detrimental to their chances of extending their stay on the continent.

Al Ittihad have had a mixed campaign to this point. However, they have won their last two games on the bounce, scoring seven goals and keeping a clean sheet in both.

We are backing the Saudi champions to claim a comfortable victory with goals at both ends.
