Group A - Ahli and Jazira will play tomorrow and the team finishing second will play Perspolis.
Al Ahli (11, +4)
Al Jazira (8, +1)
Group B - Duhail will finish first and Zob Ahan and Lokomotiv will play tomorrow. ZA need a tie to finish second. Either ZA or Uzbek team will play Esteghlal unless we lose to Al Hilal (1-0 Esteghlal 75th minute)
Esteghlal won 1-0 away to Al Hilal (well semi away as fucking Saudis prefer neutral zone) Eyval and congrats to both Esteghlal and Perspolis for finishing strong in their respective groups. Best of luck to Zob Ahan tomorrow but that means we will get them in next round.
Congrats to both Es Es and Perspolis for their wins today and becoming top of their groups! It's been a longtime we haven't seen this happening... Hopefully Zob Ahan can make it 3 for our clubs in the next round of ACL. Hopefully this will continue for all our clubs in the upcoming rounds.
nail biting extra minutes for ZA as Lokomotiv scored the tying goal at last minute. Congrats to ZA, EsEs and PP.
Lokomotiv Tashkent 1-1 Zob Ahan (FT)
Al Jazira 0-2 Al Ahli (65'')
Round of 16:
May 7, 14: Perspolis v. Al Jazira (as it stands now)
May 8, 15: Esteghlal v. Zob Ahan
Perspolis and Esteghlal will both play host in second leg games.
Quarter finals will be played in August and teams will be drawn randomly which means clubs from same countries could face each other. Hala chera vahshat kardi Houman? Shayad be Jazira bakhtid (khoda nakardeh) keh be EsEs rooberoo nashid.
Idiotic that they don't have draw for round of 16 and it is pre determined which group leader play the other group runner up. In the east also two Korean teams play each other and two Chinese club also face off in round of 16.
