Esteghlal, Persepolis Share the Spoils: IPL

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Esteghlal and Persepolis football teams played out a goalless draw on Matchweek 8 of the Iran Professional League (IPL) on Saturday.

In a boring game held in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium, the popular teams failed to register a single goal in a match that is arguably one of the most exciting derbies in the world.

The match failed to meet the expectations.

Persepolis and Esteghlal are Iran’s representatives in 2021-22 AFC Champions League but they need to strengthen themselves for the prestigious competition.

Furthermore, Gol Gohar, moved top of the table with a 4-2 win over Sepahan in Sirjan. Armin Sohrabian, Mehdi Tikdari (two goals) and Saeid Sadeghi were on target for Gol Gohar and Danial Esmaeilifar scored a brace for Sepahan.

*Gol Gohar 4-2 Sepahan
*Sanat Naft 0 – 0 Paykan
*Havadar 0 – 0 Naft Masjed Soleyman
*Esteghlal 0 – 0 Persepolis

Sunday’s Fixture:
*Nassaji v Padideh
*Zob Ahan v Mes
*Fajr Sepasi v Foolad
*Tractor v Aluminum
