Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat to Al Ittihad in their final group match, Sepahan narowly beat Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya for second place due to head-to-head points, while Al Ittihad went unbeaten in the opening stage, topping their group after a 2-1 victory over Nassaji Mazandaran.

By the thinnest of margins, Sepahan are through to the last 16 of this competition for the first time since 2011-12, ending the opening stage as one of the best second-placed finishers.

After going winless in their first two Champions League group matches, Sepahan came on strong near the tail end of that stage, winning three of their final four games, including their last two at home by a combined score of 10-0.

Jose Morais’ side has a perfect record in the group stage when scoring the opener while claiming just a single points after conceding the first goal.

A dramatic last-gasp equaliser in their opening group match at the Champions League served as a good wakeup call for Al Hilal, who cruised through the rest of the opening phase, winning their next five matches by a combined score of 15-1.

That 1-1 draw on matchday one was the only time in the opening round that Al Hilal were behind in this tournament, enabling them to progress into the last 16 for the third time over the past four Champions League campaigns.

Along with Al Nassr and Kawasaki Frontale, Jorge Jesus’ side were the only other side to finish the group stage of this competition unbeaten, while they wound up with the best goal difference in the opening phase (+16).

Al Hilal did not concede a single goal away from home in the Champions League group stage, winning all but one of their domestic matches on the road this season (1-1 draw with Damac).
