It seems that the most important competition in Asia, the AFC Champions League, will be successful this year for the Saudi clubs involved in the tournament, as well as the many Brazilians involved with these clubs.

Whether it is Fabinho and Romarinho with Al-Ittihad, Malcolm and Michael with Al-Hilal, or even Talisca and Alex Telles with Al-Nassr, the three teams are now, with one day to go, guaranteed to reach the next round thanks to their recent victories.

Indeed, Al-Hilal won at the start of the week 2-0 against the Uzbeks of Navbahor on the road, with a goal from Malcolm, which already ensures them first place in the group. Al-Nassr conceded a 0-0 at home against the Iraqis of Persepolis, but with 13 points, they are also assured of finishing first in their group. Only Al-Ittihad, 2-1 winner of AGMK on the road, will have to wait until the last day to know if they will finish first or second.

At this stage of the competition, Talisca remains the top scorer with 8 goals scored. After the group stage, clubs will now move on to knockout matches, where they will face East Asian clubs, since the group stages are split between pools in West Asia and East Asia.
