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)

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.

Seems like we're heading for Esteghlal - Zob Ahan in round of 16. Zob need a tie to finish second and it looks promising after 45 minutes.

HT: Loko 0-1 ZA

In group A, Jazira of UAE is losing to Al Ahli of Saudi 1-0 (20'). Perspolis will play Al Jazira if they cannot beat Ahli with 2 goals difference or better.

Any links to Zob game? They are playing away and must maintain.....


Payande jaan I think Zob must win. If they draw they will have lower goal difference unless head to head or another factor is looked at as a tie breaker.

Jazira 0-2 Ahli (HT). Very unlike for Jazira to score 4 goals. PP will play UAE based Al Jazira which means they will play home games at Azadi (good)

Zob Ahan 1-0 Lokomotiv (80')

Tractor 1-0 Gharaffa (meaningless game as both teams eliminated)

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.
