TEHRAN, Apr. 09 (MNA) – Iran’s Perspolis FC defeated Al-Ahli of Saudi Arabia 2-0 to keep its hopes alive to advance to the next stage of the 2019 AFC Champions League.

The match between the Iranian giants Perspolis and Saudi football team Al-Ahli in the Group D of the 2019 AFC Champions League was held at Zabeel Stadium in Dubai, UAE, this evening and ended 2-0 for the Iranian side.

This win helps Perspolis, as the vice-champion of the last edition of the Asian championships, keep its hopes alive to advance from the group stage to the next level, while it is currently standing in the third place in its group with 4 points after Uzbek Pakhtakor and Qatari Al Sadd with 5 and 4 points, respectively.
