Boudiaf boost for Duhail ahead of Persepolis clash

Doha: The return to full fitness of key midfielder Karim Boudiaf will be a big boost for Al Duhail as they take on Iran’s Persepolis in the second leg of AFC Champions League quarterfinal.

Boudiaf, who underwent a surgery for a knee injury he suffered during Al Duhail’s Sheikh Jassim Cup loss to Al Rayyan, showed glimpses of his technical supremacy in Qatar’s 3-0 victory over Palestine in an international friendly on Tuesday.

Duhail had beaten Persepolis 1-0 in the first leg played in Doha and need Boudiaf to be on the top of his game to ensure progress.

Nabil Maaloul’s will play against Persepolis at the famous Azadi Stadium in Iranian capital Tehran on September 17.
