The Al-Hilal team will challenge the Navbahor team in a 1e ronde AFC Champions League in King Fahd International Stadium Stadium, Riyadh on Monday, September 18, 2023. For streaming coverage of Al-Hilal vs Navbahor, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Al-Hilal, the strongest team in Saudi Arabia, will start their struggle in group D of the AFC Champions League by hosting Navbahor Namangan, a newcomer from Uzbekistan, at King Fahd Stadium on Monday (18/9) afternoon. They are determined to achieve a big win and maintain their impressive record in the continent’s most prestigious tournament.
Al-Hilal is the defending champion of the Saudi Pro League with 15 league titles and is also the record four-time champion of the AFC Champions League. They were also runners-up last year after losing to Al Ahli in the final. They have a squad containing many stars, including Neymar, who only joined this season from Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar is the best player in the world at the moment, having scored two goals and provided an assist for Brazil in the recent World Cup qualifiers. He is also the all-time leading goalscorer for the Brazilian national team. He will most likely feature from the start after coming on as a substitute against Al Riyadh a few days ago and scoring one goal.
Al-Hilal is in excellent form after achieving four consecutive wins in the domestic league with a big goal difference. They destroyed Al Raed 4-0, Al Riyadh 6-1, beat Al Ettifaq 2-0, and won dramatically 4-3 over defending champions Al Ittihad at home. They also have the huge advantage of playing at home, where they will have the support of more than 60 thousand loyal supporters.
Meanwhile, Navbahor Namangan is a team that is not widely known in Asia. This is their first time participating in the AFC Champions League after qualifying for the group stage via the play-offs. They narrowly won 1-0 over Al Wakrah from Qatar in that match.
However, they did not show good form in the domestic league, where they only won one, drew one and lost one of the last three matches.
Navbahor Namangan also has no experience playing at international level. They will face a big challenge to match Al-Hilal, who are far superior in terms of quality and experience. They will also be playing in large, noisy stadiums, which can make them nervous and stressed.
Relying on the recent performance of both teams, Al-Hilal is expected to win easily over Navbahor Namangan. Neymar will be the spearhead of the attack and score goals for his teammates.
