Kuala Lumpur: India's Chennai City will play their first-ever AFC Cup game when they host recently crowned Dhivehi Premier League champions Maziya Sports & Recreation of the Maldives in a fixture that sees the visitors return to the competition for the first time since 2017.

The 2018-19 I-League champions Chennai City are following in the footsteps of Chennaiyin FC, who competed in the 2019 AFC Cup, as the Tamil Nadu city is represented in the tournament for the second successive season.

Maziya, meanwhile, produced a stunning result to defeat another Indian side, Bengaluru FC, on penalties in the play-offs to progress to the group stage. As the only non-debutant, the Male club will hope their experience proves beneficial in a new-look South Zone group.

Chennai City (IND) vs Maziya Sports & Recreation (MDV)
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai
Kick-off: March 11, 19:30 UTC +5:30
