The Saudi victory will host its Emirati counterpart Al-Wahda at the Marsool Park Stadium in Riyadh on October 16, while the Iranian Persepolis will be a heavy guest for Al-Hilal in the capital, Riyadh as well.
However, if the Iranian club objected to playing in Saudi Arabia, the Asian Football Confederation may resort to moving the match to a neutral ground, as happened in the final price round with Al Nasr and Al Hilal teams, who played with Iranian clubs in Doha and Dubai, respectively.
Assuming the victory of Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal, the tournament may result in a possible confrontation, which is the first for the two poles of Riyadh in the AFC Champions League.
In East Asia, the draw resulted in an all-Korean confrontation between Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Ulsan Hyundai, while the other Korean club Pohang Steelers plays against Japan’s Nagoya Grampus.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the AFC Champions League playoffs are being played in a single round.
The quarter-finals and semi-finals of the West Asian region will be held in Saudi Arabia, while the competitions for these two rounds of the East region will be held in South Korea, while the final match will be held in Saudi Arabia on November 23.
