September 12, 2017

Persepolis coach Branko Ivankovic says that they are determined to book a place in the AFC Champions League semifinal and will fight until the end to beat Al Ahli.

Persepolis have been scheduled to face the Saudi Arabian representative at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the UAE on Tuesday in the second leg of ACL quarter-final.
“This is for the second time we face Al Ahli and we have respect for them. Al Ahli are a dangerous team but we want to beat them, that’s why we are here,” Ivankovic said in the pre-match news conference.
“Persepolis are well equipped for this match but both team have a 50-50 chance of advancing to the next stage.
“In the first leg, we came from 2-0 behind to draw the match and it shows we have determination. On the other side, Al Ahli’s Sergei Rebrov is a top level international coach and is hungry for the success,” the Croat added.
“In football, everything is possible. We will do our best to qualify for the semi-final. Persepolis have the biggest fan base and we play for them,” Ivankovic concluded.
