Bunyodkor beats Sepahan 1-0 in Asian Champs League

Uzbekistani champion Bunyodkor boosted its chances reaching the Asian Champions League knockout round with a 1-0 win over Iranian side Sepahan on Tuesday.
Bunyodkor took the lead in the 19th minute with a close-range header from Timur Kapadze, after a corner by Server Djeparov.
Striker Shavkat Salomov should have doubled the lead in the 40th, but Sepahan goalkeeper Rahman Ahmadi smothered the ball at his feet.
In the second half, Ahmadi again kept Sepahan in the game when he stopped a Rivaldo free kick that was heading for the top corner.
Sepahan came close to an equalizer in the 62nd, but Haji Safi Ehsan's long-range shot went just over the bar.
Bunyodkor has seven points from four matches in Group D, three points more than Sepahan. Both sides have two group matches remaining.
