Foolad and Saba Battery in AFC CL Matchday 2
Iran’s AFC Champions League representatives Saba Battery and Foolad both are still in the race for the Iranian Pro League title. However, with four games left in the season, only a complete crash by the top two teams Esteghlal and Pas will give them a real shot at winning the prize.
Despite their patchy performance in the domestic league, both teams started their AFC campaign with convincing victories. In Group C Saba defeated Al Gharafa of Qatar 2:0 while Foolad trashed their Group A opponents Al Qadisiya of Kuwait 6:0.
On paper Foolad are heavy favorites, but the inconsistency that has plagued them all season may come to hunt them if they do not bring on their A game.
Saba Battery’s captain Ali Daei has promised nothing less than a victory, but his team may have more of a challenge ahead of them than they may have expected from the Syrian side which surprised Al Wahda of UAE with a 2:1 victory.
