AMMAN — Wihdat host Lebanon’s Ahed on Monday in the 7pm match at Kind Abdullah Stadium in leg 1 of the 16th Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup West Asia zone semis.

Jazira will play Syria’s Jeish in Manama, Bahrain, on Tuesday in the other semifinal and hope to further advance in the second-tier Asian club competition.

Wihdat beat Palestine’s Quds 2-0 to head Group A, while Jazira eliminated titleholders Kuwait Club 2-1 to advance.

The top teams from the three competing west Asian groups (Wihdat, Jazira and Ahed) in addition to the best second placed team (Jeish) moved to the semifinal round of the zone with the winner advancing to the eventual competition final against the East Asia champ.
