Tehran Times - Persepolis coach Branko Ivankovic says that they have a difficult task to book a place in the AFC Champions League semis.

Persepolis will have to face Qatar’s Al Duhail – who have won all eight of their matches in the ACL this year – in ACL quarters.

“Al Duhail are the Qatar champions and have shown their strengths in the previous stages, however, I believe in my players,” Ivankovic said.

“We have good memories of Al Duhail (Lekhwiya) in the previous seasons. We want to repeat our success against them,” he added.

“We have a lot of respect for Al Duhail but I wish my deserved team all the best,” Ivankovic said.

Persepolis play Al Duhail on Aug. 28 in Doha and host the Qatari giants on Sept. 18 in Tehran.
