23 April 2009 No Comment

Al Iittifaq took a huge step towards the last 16 in the Asian Champions League, while Bunyodkor shocked Sepahan to take control of second place.

The Uzbek champions arrived in Iran level on points with their hosts and with all to play for. In a tight encounter in Isfahan, Timur Kapadze scored the only goal of the match in the 19th minute.

The international headed home a Server Djeparov corner to give his team the lead and while Sepahan lay siege to the Uzbek goal, the visitors hung on for a vital three points.

In Dubai, Al Shabab were put to the sword by the impressive Ittifaq. Prince Tagoe scored a hat-trick as the Saudi Arabian team came from behind to win 4-1.

Marcos Assuncao scored from the penalty spot after 15 minutes but then the Ghanian goal-getter stepped up to equalise after the half-hour and grab two more after half time.
