The domestic season in Asia is well and truly underway. Teams from all around the continent are taking part in their seasonal national leagues. Meanwhile, the best performers from last seasons have also embarked on their respective campaigns in the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup. In the mix are several ASEAN clubs, who are vying for supremacy in both the competitions.
The performances of several ASEAN clubs in the early gameweeks of the continental tournaments have also added to their points tally in the overall table, with some remarkable results.
