Persepolis ready for AFC Champions League final

Iran’s Persepolis are gearing up to line up against South Korea’s Ulsan Hyundai in the AFC Champions League final at Al-Janoub stadium in Qatar.

Persepolis, who have reached the final twice in the last three years, lost the 2018 feat to Japan's Kashima Antlers and are expected to fiercely fight for this year's title on Saturday.

They have suffered just one defeat in the group stage but finished atop group C.

The Iranian giants put up a brilliant performance in the semi-finals, knocking out the Saudi club Al-Nassr in the penalty shootout, despite the numerous false claims made by the Saudis after the match.

The Red Army hope to put an end to the continental trophy drought for Iranian clubs.

PAS of Tehran were the last Iranians who lifted the Asian Club Championship in 1993.
