Defending IPL Champions Esteghlal Khuzestan made their debut in Asian Champions League with a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabian club Al-Fateh in Muscat, Oman on 20 February. The only goal of the match was scored by little known U-23 defender Abolfazl Alaei with ten minutes remaining in the match.

In Dubai, Esteghlal Tehran lost 2-1 to Al-Ahli on two goals from Senegalese striker Makhete Diop. Omid Ebrahimi found the equalizer for Esteghlal in the 74th minute but unfortunately Ali Mansourian’s men let in goals at the worst possible times: the 45th and 90th minutes.
