The Bahraini team, Al-Muharraq, has reached the semi-finals of the AFC Cup, at the expense of the Lebanese title holder, Al-Ahed.
Al-Muharraq managed to defeat Al-Ahed 3-0, during the match that brought them together on Monday, in the semi-finals of the West Asian region, and the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Al-Muharraq opened the scoring in the 68th minute through Jonas Moses, before adding the second goal in the 87th minute through Ahmed Al-Shorouqi, to finish the team’s goals in stoppage time.
Thus, Muharraq qualifies for the final match of the West Asian region, waiting for the winner of the other match between the Kuwaiti teams of Kuwait and Al-Salt of Jordan.
The final of the West Asian region will be held on October 20, with the winner of that match facing the qualifier from the final of the rest of the regions on November 5, in the AFC Cup final.
Al Muharraq is seeking to win the AFC Cup for the second time in its history, after winning the title for the first and last time in 2008.
On the other hand, the Lebanese era failed to maintain its title, which it won for the first time in the last edition, 2019, after the previous edition was canceled due to the repercussions of the Corona virus.
