Asian Champions League 2008

Alright...

Time for some football here

The 2008 ACL kicks off today.

I'll focus on the Western section groups here...

Group A

Ittihad (KSA) , Ittihad (SYR) , Sepahan (IRN) , Kuruvchi (UZB)

Sepahan v Ittihad Aleppo
Ittihad Jeddah v Kuruvchi

The two main contenders have home games to start off their campaign with in what is expected to be a closely contested group.

Group B

Air Force (IRQ) , Wasl (UAE) , Saipa (IRN) , Kuwait SC (KUW)

Wasl v Air Force
Kuwait v Saipa

This is an open group with no clear favourites. Wasl and Saipa are currently struggling domestically, whilst Air force and Kuwait are flying high, so that might tell.

Group C

Ahli (KSA) , Karama (SYR) , Sadd (QAT) , Wehda (UAE)

Karama v Wehda
Sadd v Ahli

Karama will be aiming to make it out of the group stage for the third time in a row and further establish their place on the map. Sadd dominates in Qatar but the Qatari teams have flunked in the tournament so far. Ahli are outsiders but are young and talented.

Group D

Gharafa (QAT) , Irbil (IRQ) , Qadessiya (KUW) , Pakhtakor (UZB)

Pakhtakor v Qadessiya
Irbil v Gharafa

Another open group. Pakhtakor and Qadessiya are the main contenders on count of their experience in this tournament, however the competition is strong for the qualification spot.

Result: Sepahan 0-2 Ittihad Aleppo

10 man Sepahan crash to a shock 2-0 defeat in front of their fans! The worst possible start for last year's runner up.

Big season for AL WASL (where I live ) here in UAE as they take part in a local derby in the UAE Cup final vs. Al Ahli.

I think they should qualify from their group!

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

I was watching some of Al Wasl vs. Al Quwa Al Jawiya. It was such a boring match, I couldn't sit through the whole thing. Al Jawiya won 1-0.

The games yesterday were hit and miss. I would like to say Ittihad's game was good but it was awful. We might have got the 3 points, but we scored 0 on performance.

The results:

Ittihad 1-0 Kuruvchi
Sadd 2-1 Ahli
Karama 4-1 Wehda
Kuwait 1-1 Saipa

Good times for the Syrian teams
