A 10-man Foolad Sepahan of Iran reached the Asian Champions
League quarterfinals when it beat Bunyodkor of Uzbekistan 3-1 on
Sepahan midfielder Fabio Januario opened the scoring in the 27th
minute with a long-range blast that was followed six minutes later
by a close-range score from forward Ibrahima Toure.
Seven minutes into the second half, Toure was sent off.
Bunyodkor took advantage of Sepahan’s stretched defense to halve
the lead in the 56th thanks to defender Sasa Dordevic. But the
recently crowned Iran Pro League champion finished with an Hadi
Aghily penalty in the 68th.
