AGMK - Sepahan predictions and free betting tips [23/10/2023]
On Monday, in the context of the 3rd round of the AFC Champions League group stage, AGMK will play host to "Sepahan".
After 2 played rounds in AFC Champions League, AGMK finds itself in last place without a single point. The previous round saw a home defeat against "Al-Kuway" by 1:2. Head coach Kasymov employs a 4-3-3 setup. Nationally, the team ranks 5th and is trailing its nearest opponent by 1 point. In parallel, a successful performance in the Uzbekistan Cup is underway, with a semi-final victory over "Navbahor" on penalties following a 2:2 draw at full time. Kasymov focuses his team's attacking strategy on his two legionaries - Sanchez and Boaki.
"Sepahan" sits at 3rd in the leaderboard, with 1 point, following a 2:2 draw against "Al-Kuway". However, the match against "Al-Ittahad" did not take place as the Arabian team refused to play due to political stances. Inside "Sepahan's" stadium, a bust of General Kasem Suleimani resides, whom Saudi Arabia has accused of planning attacks on diplomats. In Iran's Pro League, "Sepahan" ranks 5th with 11 points, having had 4 points deducted and played fewer matches than most rivals. In the previous round, "Sepahan" bested "Sanat-Naft" at home with a 4:1 score. Head Coach Jose Morais from Portugal employs a 4-1-4-1 formation. The double striker partnership up front is made up of forwards Asadi and Alexasir.
These opponents have never faced each other before.
Despite respect to AGMK, their recent matches reveal that despite playing well in the qualifiers, they reached the group stage somewhat inadvertently. The offence lacks coherence, and the defence often falters. However, the Iranians aren't looking too sharp either at this stage. My bet would be a draw.

Matches featuring the Iranian club tend to yield high scores. My bet is on TO.
