Jordan league champions Faisali were delivered an AFC Champions League lesson after losing 5-1 to Nasaf of Uzbekistan. Despite having more shots in the game and 58% of possession, Faisali came unstuck against a clinical side that was more used to the freezing conditions in Central Asia.
An Igor Galban goal was the only thing to separate the sides at half time, but the hosts took control in the second period with four more goals.
Faisali scored an injury time consolation through Alban Meha. Nasaf will now go through to the lucrative Champions League Group stage, while Faisali will be looking to regroup in the AFC Asian Cup instead.
