Al Hilal defeat Esteghlal to book 2021 AFC Champions

Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia have booked a spot in the quarterfinals of the AFC Champions League, following a 2-0 win over Esteghlal of Iran.

Esteghlal paid a hefty price for a simple error in defense, when Mohammad Hossein Moradmand slipped at the worst possible moment, giving Bafetimbi Gomis the chance to find the net with a deft lob.

11 minutes after the break, Moussa Marega played a perfect through-ball for Salem Al Dawsari to fire-in a low-shot through the keeper’s Leg to double Al Hilal's lead as the Saudi side held on to seal the deal.
