Iran’s Persepolis can finish as table-topper in Group C of the 2018 AFC Champions League if it overcomes Al Sadd of Qatar at Azadi Stadium on Monday.
The Iranian side has won both of its home games and secured its place in the next round following a scoreless draw away at Nasaf two weeks ago.
Al Sadd currently occupyies first position and two more goals from striker Baghdad Bounedjah in a 2-1 victory over Al Wasl in early April confirmed a place in the last 16, the-afc.com wrote.
The host, who is without the suspended Shojae Khalilzadeh and injured Mohsen Rabikhah, drew 1-1 with Pars Jam Bushehr on Wednesday although it has already been crowned Iranian champion.
Al Sadd earned a 9-1 victory over Al Kharitiyath just over a week ago as it brought a poor recent domestic run to an end. The Qatari giant will be without the suspended Abdelkarim Hassan.
