Qataris edge closer to Asian Champions League semis after Iran's Sepahan are punished for fielding an ineligible player.

    Qatari footballing club Al-Saad will attempt to reach the semi-finals of the Asian Champions League for the first time on Wednesday.

    They were given a huge boost when their opponents, Sepahan, fielded an ineligible player in the first leg in Iran giving the Qataris a one goal deficit that translated into a 3-0 win.

    This is the second time Al-Sadd have reached this stage of the tournament and they hope that a home ground advantage will spell success.
