Sardor Mirzaev netted a brace as Lokomotiv claimed an excellent 4-1 win away at Al Wahda on Matchday Five to move level on six points with Zob Ahan, which lost 1-0 at home to Al Duhail, the-afc.com reported.
With the teams going into the final game on the same points, it will be Zob Ahan which progresses with a draw after the Iranian side defeated the Uzbek team earlier in the competition.
Lokomotiv, which lost 2-1 to Nasaf in its last domestic league game, welcomes Oleg Zteev back from suspension but is without the banned Ikromjon Alibaev.
Zob Ahan, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with Foolad Khuzestan and currently occupies third place in the Iranian Pro League as the Isfahan-based club chases a spot in next season’s continental competition.
