Paatoop.com- Iranian clubs have learned who they will face in the 2018 AFC Champions League.

Three Iranian clubs (Tractor, Persepolis, Esteghlal) have earned direct entry into the Group Stage of this tournament.

Zob Ahan will face India’s Aizawl, for arguably the easiest match-up of the West Region Play-off round.

In Group A, Tractor Sazi has been drawn with Al Jazira (UAE), Al Ahli (Saudi Arabia), and either Al Gharafa (Qatar) or Pakhator (Uzbekistan).

Should Zob Ahan defeat Aizawl on January 30th, they will be placed in Group B, along with Al Duhail (Qatar), Al Wahda (UAE), and Lokomotiv Tashkent (Uzbekistan).

In Group C, Persepolis has been drawn with Al Sadd (Qatar), Al Wasl (UAE), and either Nasaf Qarshi (Uzbekistan) or Al Faisaly (Jordan).

In Group D, Esteghlal has been drawn with Al Hilal (Saudi Arabia), Al Rayyan (Qatar), and either Al Ain (UAE) or Malkiya (Bahrain).

Persepolis was the most successful Iranian club in this year’s edition of this tournament (2017 AFC CL), having made it to the semi-finals.
