PLDC- Tabriz, Tractor Sazi managed to hold Esteghlal in Yadegar-e-Emam Stadium in Tabriz.
Arash Borhani gave The Blues an early lead in the 3rd minute of action. Then in the 67th minute, Saeed Daghighi tied the game to give the hosts one point from this vital match. The following players received yellow cards: Baou, Nosrati, and Gordani from Tractor Sazi, and Nekounam and P. Noori from Esteghlal.
The Blues of Tehran have one more match to play in order to catch up with the rest of the league, because they missed several matches due to their Champions League duties. Esteghlal will play Malavan on November 24th to complete their 15 matches for the first half of the season. If The Blues win this match with a good goal margin they will sit on top of the league.
Elsewhere, Saipa defeated Saba in Karaj. Kaveh Rezaei (23') and Hamed Shiri (67') scored for Saipa, and G.R. Enayati (76') scored for Saba. Roozbeh Shahalidoost, Sajjad Shahbazzadeh and Meghdad Ghobakhloo from Saipa were warned with yellow cards.
The first six teams in the IPL are all very close in terms of points and goal difference(GD). Persepolis is first with 27 points and +7 GD; Foolad is second with 27 points and +3 GD; Tractor is third with 26 points and +9 GD; Naft is fourth with 26 points and +6 GD; Sepahan is fifth with 24 points and +6 GD; and Esteghlal is sixth with 24 points and +5 GD and one game left to play. Needless to say, this season has been neck to neck, and the mid-season transfers could make the difference for these clubs.
