Today in Kuala Lumpur has been the draw of the group stage of the AFC Champions League.
As it is already known, Pakhtakor will begin its performance from the stage of the playoffs, where will play away with Al-Garafa from Qatar. In case of victory, our team will play in Group A, where its rivals will be Al Jazeera (UAE), Al-Ahli (Saudi Arabia) and Tractor Sazi (Iran).
The play-off match will be held on January 30 in Doha.
Matches of the group stage will begin on February 12.
The head coach of Pakhtakor Shota Arveladze shared his opinion on the results of the draw: In the group stage of the main tournament of the continent there are no weak teams, so the group is not easy for us, like the other three groups. But now we are focused on playing with Al-Gharafa. They have a small advantage in that in Qatar the teams played only 10 rounds of the championship.
I want to wish Lokomotiv and Nasaf good luck in this Champions League, said the head coach of Pakhtakor.
