MANAMA will take on Lebanon’s Al Ahed tonight at 6pm at Khalifa Sports City Stadium in a Group ‘A’ second round match of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) competition.
Playing at home in front of a supportive audience, Manama is seeking their first victory after a goalless draw with Syria’s Al Jaish.
Defending champions Al Ahed aim to remain on top of the group after defeating Hilal Al Quds Club 2-1 in the opener in Beirut last Monday.
AFC named Chinese Yu-Minh-Hsun as the referee for the match while he will be assisted by Kuo Chan Yu and Chen Jia Hao. Chen Hsin Chuan will be the fourth official.
Kuwaiti Saad Kameel is the referee evaluator and Tajikistani Davlatmano Islomov the match observer.
