Team News: Pakhtakor
The Pakhtakor boss Slavche Vojneski will be thankful to have no fitness worries at all before this match thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Al-Ain
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Al-Ain boss to contend with. 2 (Al-Ain FC) won’t be playing here.
Our thinking is that Al-Ain will have their work cut out to put one past this Pakhtakor side who we reckon should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
Our tip is therefore for a highly competitive game with a 1-0 win for Pakhtakor at the end of the 90.
There should be little in it.
