AMMAN — Wihdat and Faisali have less than two weeks to amend the breaches in lineup and strategy before they resume Asian Football Confederation AFC Cup and AFC Champions League matches respectively.

Wihdat have taken the lead in the second tier Asian competition, the  AFC Cup,  after the initial three rounds.They will resume the second leg of Group B on November 7 when they play Iraq’s Kahraba’a.

The Jordanian veteran club beat Kahraba’a 3-1 after they lost to Kuwait SC 2-1 and beat Aleppo’s Ittihad 2-0 in the first leg.

Observers have noted despite Wihdat’s lead, the team has had inconsistent performances.  They will need to top the group to secure their spot and advance as only the best runner-up among 3 West Asia groups will advance as well.

On the other hand,  Faisali will resume their AFC Champions League round robin group stages on November 6 when they play Qatar’s Sadd in Group B.

The team is in disarray after changing coaches all season long and losing three matches in the Champions League due to a host of reasons, including inconsistent coaching staff, injuries, and unwarranted mistakes in defence and offence.

Their worst result was going  down 6-0 to Sadd,  after they lost to UAE’s Sharjah and to  Uzbekistan’s Nasaf Qarshi 1-0.
