AFC Cup Quarter Final Draw 2016

13/09 South China (Hong Kong) v Johor Darul Ta'zim (Malaysia)
13/09 Air Force Club (Iraq) v Al Muharraq (Bahrain)

14/09 Al Ahed (Lebanon) v Al Jaish (Syria)
14/09 Bengaluru v Tampines Rovers (Singapore)

20/09 JDT v South China
20/09 Al Muharraq v Air Force Club

21/09 Al Jaish v Al Ahed
21/09 Tampines Rovers v Bengaluru

Tough ask for Tampines against Bengaluru but the Indian side will be without coach Ashley Westwood who stepped down recently.

Champions JDT face a trip to Hong Kong to take on South China in the first leg which should give them a slight advantage.

I saw JDT, Bengaluru and Al Jaish last year play in AFC competitions. Al Jaish put up a good fight against Qadsia in the AFC Cup in Kuwait before ultimately going down 3-0. And of course JDT met Bengaluru in an ACL qualifier back at the start of the year.

Will Tampines Rovers look to repeat the Selangor where they switched the tie to the National Stadium. A tad over 11,000 watched that game but then it was a local derby...will Bengalurur have a similar appeal?
