In the qualifying round, they were drawn in Group A along with hosts Alga Bishkek from Kyrgyzstan and Benfica de Macau. They beat Benfica de Macau 4-1 in their opening game and then drew with hosts Alga to qualify for the group stage without having to go through the playoff round due to a lack of teams in the east region.
