The Thai Premier League side ensured they would play Tuesday's one-legged encounter at the Chonburi Muncipality Stadium after finishing top of Group G with a 2-1 win over Home United in their final group match.

And while Al Zawra'a are expected to pose a stern challenge, Sharks coach Withaya Laohakul believes his side are capable of beating anyone on home soil.

"We haven't lost at home this season," Withaya said after the win against Singapore's Home United on May 8. "The players are confident when playing at home.

"I think we are capable of beating any team at home."

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Home will be looking to book their spot in the quarter-finals when they take on Syrian side Al Shorta on neutral soil in Jordan.

Al Qadsia and Al Kuwait face off in an all-Kuwaiti affair at the Mohammed Al Hamad Stadium, while Saudi side Al Ettifaq host Omani giants Al Suwaiq.
