Zob Ahan to face Lokomotiv in do-or-die battle

Zob Ahan to face Lokomotiv in do-or-die battle

It’s do or die for Lokomotiv and Zob Ahan on Tuesday when the second and third-placed sides face off in Group B of the 2018 AFC Champions League with the winner to advance in second place.

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, 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.
