The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

You­nis Mah­mood scored twice but it was not enough to stop 2014 AFC Cup fi­nal­ists Er­bil go­ing down 3-2 to Ahal in Group C of the 2015 cham­pi­onship at Doha’s Saoud bin Ab­dul­rah­man Sta­dium on Wed­nes­day evening.

The vet­eran Iraq in­ter­na­tional striker gave Er­bil the lead in the 40th minute and struck again in the 64th minute but goals from Za­far Baba­janov and a brace from Mamedaly Karadanov se­cured all three points for Ahal.

Victory moves Ahal onto seven points and level with de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Al Qad­sia and group lead­ers Istik­lol from Ta­jik­istan with just two rounds of matches re­main­ing. Er­bil are bot­tom of the stand­ings and are now four points adrift.
