AFC Cup 2016 Final Match Preview
Sunil Chhetri who scored twice against the Defending AFC champions JDT let Bengaluru FC create history in home soil. However, he pulled his hamstring and no update that will he be ruled out of the Finals. CK Vineet was extremely impressive and was exceptional creating chances and increasing the percentage of the conversion rate.
If there is one thing Bengaluru should be concerned about, it is their conversion rate. They are never short of creating chances, but converting them adequately enough has been a problem. However,the previous Match performances have shut the critics up.
On the other hand, Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya is making their debut in the AFC Cup finals of the competition as well, while this is only the third AFC Cup competition they are participating in. Midfielder and goalscorer Zahir Al Medani will have his name prominent on the team sheet.
Also providing a major boost on the personnel front for coach Basim Qasim will be the availability of striker Hammadi Ahmad, who has scored 14 goals in the competition – the leading sharp-shooter in the tournament in the 2016 edition. The Sharpshooters can give a tough day to the Indian Club as they play in front of their Middle east crowd.

Bengaluru FC VS Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya Predictions
Both Bengaluru FC and Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya has stunned regular AFC Cup participating teams like Al Ahed and Johar Tazim who had a strong reputation in the past few years. While still there are no updates on Sunil Chhetri’s update and he might feature in the AFC Cup Finals within the two weeks time. Moreover, the Iranian club Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya has a settled unit and hard to underestimate, though. I predict a 0-0 Draw till the end and Bengaluru FC to win the AFC Cup 2016 Finals on penalties.
