Tractorsazi Runs Winless in AFC Championships

Tractorsazi continued its winless run after drawing 1-1 at home with Al Jazira of the UAE in their 2018 AFC Champions League Group A fixture on Tuesday at Yadegar-e-Emam Stadium in Tabriz, Iran.
The Tabriz-based team started brightly and had a number of opportunities to go ahead in the first half, but was denied a goal by some stellar goalkeeping by Al Jazira’s Ali Khaseif, AFC reported.
While the hosts enjoyed clear domination, Al Jazira opened the scoring against the run of play in the 44th minute. Brazilian star Romarinho latched on to an aerial pass from defender Musallam Fayez and slotted in the first goal of the match.
After the restart, Tractorsazi emerged with renewed vigor and urgency, but was let down once again by a combination of poor finishing and Khaseif’s continued brilliance. Ehsan Pahlevan, in particular, had a glorious chance after going one-on-one with the Emirati goalkeeper but skewed his shot just wide of the right post.
