The defending champions carry an advantage over Al Jazeera...

The West Zonal final second leg is all set to unfold and here's what awaits us on a crucial week:


Air Force Club vs Al Jazeera


Al Jazeera will be looking to overcome a deficit when they travel away to take on Iraq's Air Force Club in the second leg of their AFC Cup West Zonal final. 

The 1-0 defeat they suffered in the first leg means they have an unenviable task at hand. They need to score on the day and against a tough Air Force Club defence, their prospects look a bit bleak. 

Hammadi Ahmed scored the solitary goal in the first leg and the challenge for Al Jazeera will also be on how they keep a check on the star striker. 

Mohammed Tannous will be expected to carry the attacking burden for Al Jazeera while Air Force Club will be supremely confident of securing a result. 

They just need a goal and they will be all but through.
