Zobahan FC eased to the knockout stage of the AFC Champions League with a draw against Lokomotiv of Tashkent to join two other Iranian teams already qualified for the round of 16.
The Iranian club finished 1-1 against the Uzbeks at Lokomotiv Stadium in Tashkent; the result was just enough to help it ease through the next stage of the tournament, AFC wrote on its website.
The Uzbek side made its intentions clear from the start with constant attacking pressure. But it was Zobahan which struck first, taking advantage of spaces behind the Lokomotiv defense in the 25th minute. Mohammad Reza Hosseini skillfully controlled the ball and sent a defense-splitting through pass for Morteza Tabrizi who netted his fifth goal of the campaign.
