Analysis of Chennai City

Chennai City is coming to their first appearance in the AFC Champions and they certainly don't want to play ugly. The difficulty will exist, but they should know how to deal with it throughout the match. If they really want to ensure qualification they will need to show satisfactory performance where errors are not allowed. They should use the local factor as an ally in the search for a good result, as they know that with it they will be able to go to the subsequent phase of the competition. Of course they should respect their opponent, but it is within your domain that they will be playing and it is precisely where they should show who is in charge. That said, it is clear that a setback is something not going through their head right now.

In the current edition of the Asian Champions League we will once again have the presence of Al Riffa. The team will try to do their best in the competition, even knowing the difficulty ahead. Step by step they want to start surprising, so in this first preliminary phase they want to show what they came for, and en elimination right now doesn't cross their mind.

Betting suggestion:

Even playing at home, Chennai will not find any slack in this match, so it will be important to impose on the field. The visitors should not have an easy game and will need to show high quality football on the pitch. The tendency is that it is a busy game with high chances of goals. Our betting suggestion will be over 2.5 goals in the duel.
