The Al-Ittihad team will challenge the Al Quwa Al Jawiya team in a AFC Champions League Group Stage in King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, Jeddah on Monday, October 23, 2023. For streaming coverage of Al-Ittihad vs. Al Quwa Al Jawiya, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Al-Ittihad will host Al-Quwa Al Jawiya at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium on Monday (23/10) in the continuation of the Asian Champions League, with the aim of leapfrogging the Iraqi team to the top of Group C. The team from Saudi Arabia beat AGMK with a score 3-0 in their opener, thanks to a goal from Haroune Camara and a brace from Romarinho.
However, Al-Quwa Al Jawiya have collected one more point and played one more match as well. The Iraqi team opened their campaign with a 2-2 draw against Sepahan before winning 2-1 over AGMK. With four points from two matches, Al-Quwa Al Jawiya are first in their group, ahead of Al-Ittihad, who have not shown their best form of late.
The People’s Club needed a penalty shootout to beat Al-Kholood in the Round of 32 of the King of Champions Cup. Since then, they have drawn three times in a row in the Saudi Pro League. Last time out, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team drew 1-1 with Al-Taawoun, with Karim Benzema scoring goals at both ends of the pitch.
Currently, Al-Ittihad is still in third place in the league standings with 20 points from 10 matches, three points behind Al-Taawoun and six points behind leaders Al-Hilal. They are also one point behind Al-Quwa Al Jawiya in Group C of the Asian Champions League, after their match against Sepahan on the second matchday was canceled.
Now, if they can beat Al-Quwa Al Jawiya, this will be a good opportunity for them. Not only will they end their winning drought, but also snatch top spot in the group from their opponents.
Al-Ittihad has superior player quality compared to its opponents. They have Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante, who are world-class players who only joined the club last summer.
Benzema has scored five goals in nine appearances for the club, while Kante has been a driving force in midfield. Both will be the deciding factors for the home team in this match.
Al-Quwa Al Jawiya should not be underestimated even though it does not have big names like its opponents. They have Ali Jasim, who is the top scorer in their group with three goals. He will be a threat to Al-Ittihad’s defense, which has not been very solid this season.
The team from Iraq also has a high fighting spirit and does not give up easily. They have shown their ability to score goals in both previous matches, despite conceding goals in both of them as well. With all the existing factors, Al-Ittihad is expected to win with a narrow score over Al-Quwa Al Jawiya.
