The match will be hosted at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh from 10:45 PM IST onwards. The former ISL champions have never played against the Saudi Arabia-based team and both sides will look to make a mark in the prestigious continental competition.
After an unceremonious end to their ISL campaign, coach Des Buckingham’s side regrouped and resumed their preparations for the AFC Champions League last month in Abu Dhabi, UAE. As a part of the preparations, Mumbai City played a couple of friendlies against Al Ain FC and Al Hilal United FC, winning both with 2-1 and 2-0 respectively.
Meanwhile, Al Shabab have not been at their best in the domestic circuit. The Riyadh-based outfit slid to the fourth spot in the Saudi Pro League, having drawn eight and losing four matches.
However, anything can happen in football and fans here can check the details as to when, where and how to watch the AFC Champions League Mumbai City vs Al Shabab live streaming online and telecast.
