Still not for Sepahan, Zowbahan closer to top

TEHRAN, Oct. 31 (MNA) – Title defenders of Iran’s Pro League fell to the six row of the table on a day of victory for their fellow Isfahanis.

At the end of the 11th round of Iran’s 15th Premier League of Soccer 2015-16 aka Persian Gulf Premier League of Football, the results still kept the two at the top in their positions while the golden giants of Isfahan continued their fall from the top of table to let the unsuccessful of the early rounds leapfrog them.

The second day of the eleventh round was opened in Mashhad where Siah Jamegan of the city was edge passed by Saipa 2-1 at Samen Stadium to hand the visitors the three points of the event.

The second fixture of the busy day of Iran’s Premier football kicked off simultaneously in Tabriz where Gostaresh Foulad handed a 4-1 defeat to the other premier club of Mashhad to make it a day of defeat for both Mashhadi teams of Persian Gulf League.

In northern port city of Anzali the white swans of the city had a listless 1-0 victory over the troubled Foulad of Khuzestan who has collected 6 points at the end of the eleventh round of the season.

Naft of Tehran and visiting Esteghlal of Khuzestan ended with a scoreless draw in Tehran in a day that Ahvazis could have usurped the top of the table with defeating their hosts.

Zowabahan had a vigorous victory in its home pitch as they clinched a 4-0 triumph over Tartar’s Rahahan.

Now the greens of Isfahan are closest to the top of the table sitting at third place three points behind Esteghlal of Tehran.

In Qom, Tractorsazi of Tabriz received two goals to let its host Saba edge pass them 2-1 as the match was opened with an own goal at the 20th minute of the event.

The last match of the day was between Sepahan of Isfahan and Esteghlal of Ahvaz. Ahvazis who had a very bad season residing at the bottom of the table enjoyed the presence of their fans at the home event but lagged behind 1-0 till their penalty of the 81st minute was converted. Though the 1-1 draw was a bad result for the visitors but Ahvazis who have had a bumpy season were quite happy to bag a point in front of the title defenders of the competition.
