Tomorrow the fourth matchday of 2017 AFC Champions League will be kicked off where two Uzbek giants, FC Bunyodkor and PFC Lokomotiv will resume their participation.
FC Bunyodkor will face off against Persian Gulf Pro League club Zob Ahan FC in an away match as Loko team will rematch with Tehran-based Esteghlal in front of the home crowd.
Sergey Lushchan side arrived in Isfahan city and checked in Kowsar hotel yesterday evening. They conduct the first training sessions this morning.
Surprisingly, the Swallows didn’t earn any points in three post matches yet. Head coach, Lushchan is also pretending that he’s still giving opportunities to young generation to play in this kind of important and prestigious competition where this young generation already turned 20-21 years old which means that they are not young players anymore.
Most of the specialists and their fans have already started to show their emotional appeals asking Sergey Lushchan to sack from his position after consequent losses in not only AFC Champions League but also Uzbekistan Oliy League.
It is clear that the upcoming match will be the most important and crucial game where FC Bunyodkor is more likely to stop their participation in the group stage of this tournament.
