Preview - Group B: PFC Lokomotiv (UZB) v Al Ittihad (KSA)

Tashkent: PFC Lokomotiv will aim to stay in the race for qualification places when they host Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad on Matchday Four of the 2019 AFC Champions League Group B on Monday.

Despite fighting back from two goals down to equalise in the second half, Lokomotiv fell to a 3-2 defeat in the reverse fixture with Fahad Al Muwallad netting the winning goal from the spot in added time.

The result left the Uzbek side bottom of the group with three points, while two-time champions Al Ittihad are level with group leaders Al Wahda on six points each, but are second on head-to-head record.

Having been embroiled in a relegation battle domestically this season, Al Ittihad go into Monday’s encounter buoyed by a 2-0 win over Al Ittifaq that saw them climb to 11th place, three points afloat of the drop zone.

Lokomotiv on the other side are in second place domestically, five weeks into the start of the Uzbekistan Super League season start. Another defeat to Al Ittihad on Monday, would however, leave their continental hopes hanging by a thread.
