Esteghlal Has a Big Chance to Beat Al Duhail: Winfried Schaefer

Esteghlal football team head coach Winfried Schaefer is optimistic about the team’s match against Al Duhail of Qatar.

The Iranian team will face Al Duhail in Doha in Group C of the AFC Champions League on Tuesday.

“First, I want to congratulate the Qataris over winning the title of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. I follow Qatar football for 10 years. They had some mistakes in the past but have worked very well on their talented players,” the German coach said.

“We have a good feeling about the match against Al Duhail and have a good chance to get result in this match. Godwin Mensha scored a goal against Al Duhail when he was playing for Persepolis last season and I hope he can repeat his performance,” Schaefer added.

“Esteghlal played a good match against Al Sadd in the previous season but we had lost the first leg in our home and were forced to say goodbye to the competition. We have a new team in this season and I think we could beat Al Duhail,” the Esteghlal coach concluded.
