Istiklol vs Al-Nassr: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

Two clubs from the opposite ends of Group D square off as Istiklol and Al-Nassr play their last group match in the AFC Champions League.

Istiklol's journey in the competition has come to a bitter end as the club have no wins to show after five games and the encounter against Al-Nassr would be another daunting task for the home side. Al Duhail defeated them 2-0 in their last AFC match and despite odds currently against them, Istiklol would want to bow out with an upset in their own backyard.

Al Nassr, on the other hand, have left no stone unturned to pave their path for the knockout stages of the competition. The Group D leaders are unbeaten in their segment with four wins and one draw taking their points tally to 13 points. Although the 3-0 thumping by Al Hilal in their domestic league raised a few eyebrows, Cristiano Ronaldo and company would look to brush aside any concerns during their visit to Istiklol.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
