Al Hilal to Win
Despite travelling into enemy territory, Al Hilal are favourites to claim an away victory at the fabled Azadi Stadium. The Arabian outfit has not lost to their Persian rivals in their last five meetings, winning twice and drawing three times. With just one loss in their last 13 fixtures, they should live up to their billing and claim bragging rights over their rivals.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Persepolis has scored eleven goals in their last four fixtures. Al Hilal has been in good goalscoring form themselves, hitting the back of the net eight times in the same number of matches. With both sides finding it easy to score and seeing three of their last five H2H duels conclude in Over 2.5 total goals, this match should be a goal extravaganza.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
This is going to be the tenth meeting between Persepolis and Al Hilal, both teams have not been mentioned in the goals column together with regularity. Only on four occasions has this come to fruition. It is Persepolis who have staggered in this aspect, a trait they should rectify given their rich scoring form in recent times. We are predicting a tough affair but one with goals on either end of the pitch.
Persepolis vs Al Hilal: Team News and Match Preview
The Iranian champions are underdogs at the Azadi Stadium and with good reason. They have not beaten their Saudi counterparts in five attempts, winning just twice in nine meetings. However, they will fancy their chances given the fact they are unbeaten in 90 minutes of regulation action in fourteen competitive outings. Yahya Golmohammadi will have trust in his charges, who have continued to regular hound their rivals whilst keeping affairs tight at the back.
Persepolis will feel confident in their abilities but will be well aware of the threat Al Hilal pose. The reigning Saudi Professional League champions are in the reckoning to defend their title but have to be on their best behaviour to avoid an upset against their Iranian counterparts. A defeat to the Persians will not be received with open arms, raising the stakes involved in their trip. However, with Leonardo Jardim directing from the dugout, they have every conceivable advantage in this AFC Champions League fixture.
