This will be their 15th AFC Champions League campaign, although after reaching the semi-finals in both 2002-03 and 2004, they have not successfully navigated the group stage since 2010.
Lions’ head coach Shota Arveladze shared his comments on tomorrow’s match against Air Force at the press conference at the Pakhtakor Stadium.
“We will play for a good result making happy our fans tomorrow. I hope there will be a crowd at the stadium as it is going to be warm weather.”
“Air Force is a very strong and experienced team with their skillful players. However, our aim to win the game.”
“We focused on local players in winter transfer window while forming a team for this season. Preparation phase was not organised what we expected. New players joined our side that all of them will have a chance to play tomorrow.”
