Persepolis fan girls at Azadi Stadium

Persepolis began the second half stronger than their first. Mohammad Omri and Mehdi Torabi moved the ball well in the final third, taking several shots from range, but nothing which troubled Yatimov.Despite dominating the ball, the hosts struggled to find their second goal and it was Istiklol who reminded the hosts they were still in the match. However, a free-kick from a busy Dzhalilov found the target but was dealt with by Beiranvand comfortably.
