Tehran Times – TEHRAN, Iconic Iraqi midfielder Bashar Resan is reportedly a doubt for Persepolis’s match against Al Duhail of Qatar.
The Iranian giants will host Al Duhail in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium at the second leg of the AFC Champions League quarter-finals.
The Qatari football club edged past Persepolis 1-0 in the first leg in D0ha.
Almoez Ali scored the only goal of the match to maintain Al Duhail’s 100 percent record.
Now, Resan is a doubt for the vital match after the player sustained an ankle injury during a friendly match between Iraq and Kuwait last week.
Resan missed Persepolis home match against Nassaji Mazandaran in Iran Professional League, where the Reds won the game 2-1.
Resan’s absence would be a severe blow to their hopes of beating Al Duhail in Tehran as Persepolis are chasing a second consecutive semi-final.
