AFC – ISFAHAN, Only a point separates second-placed Zobahan and third-placed Al Ain in Group C of the AFC Champions League ahead of the sides’ crucial meeting at Foolad Shahr Stadium on Monday.

Back-to-back wins over Bunyodkor saw Zobahan leapfrog the Emirati side into second place in the standings and a third victory on the bounce would see a return to the last 16, where they lost to Al Ain in 2016.

The visitors remain unbeaten but Ah Ahli’s late leveler in a 2-2 draw two weeks ago put a dent in their qualification hopes. Since last appearing on the continent, Al Ain have suffered a 4-3 defeat to Al Wasl in the Arabian Gulf League while, conversely, Zobahan have won two from two domestically.
