Iran’s Persepolis Cruises To ACL Semis After Beating Qatar’s al-Duhail

Iran’s professional soccer club Persepolis has put on a dazzling performance in the 2018 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, advancing to the semi-finals after beating al-Duhail of Qatar.

Persepolis soccer team beat al-Duhail 3-1 in the second leg of the 2018 AFC Champions League quarter-finals at the Azadi Stadium in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Monday.

The Reds reached the AFC Champions League semi-finals for the second year in a row after coming from a goal down to earn a decisive win against the Qatari team.

Al-Duhail captain Karim Boudiaf gave his team a fortuitous lead in the 33rd minute following a set-piece.

Persepolis, however, were back in the game in the 57th minute after Jalal Hosseini’s left footed shot from the center of the box rattled the top left corner of the net.

Al-Duhail defender Sultan Al Brake scored an own goal in the 76th minute.

Persepolis striker Godwin Mensha made it 3-1 in the 78th minute after dribbling past al-Duhail goalkeeper Amine Lecomte and applying a simple finish into the empty goal.

The Reds will face Qatar’s al-Sadd in the semifinal.
