Persepolis champions - 2019 Hazfi Cup

Ahvaz: Ali Alipour was Persepolis FC's hero as his strike proved to be the difference in their 1-0 win over Damash Gilan to secure their sixth Hazfi Cup on Sunday.


On the back of defending their Iran Pro League title, the Tehran-based club achieved a domestic double by also claiming the Hazfi Cup.



The last time Persepolis had achieved such a feat was in 1999.

Damash, who play in the Iran second division, came into the match as the dark horses but a convincing 2-1 win over Saipa FC in the semi-finals gave them much to be confident about and they began brightly against Persepolis.



However, the 2018 AFC Champions League finalists were unfazed by Damash's challenge and flexed their muscles, taking the lead in the 22nd minute through Alipour's effort.

Damash returned in the second half looking to equalise, but Persepolis, who had the backing of their passionate fans at the Foolad Arena, kept a sturdy defence to keep their opponents at bay.



Despite their best attempts, Damash couldn't beat Persepolis goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand and failed to find the back of the net, and that was enough for Persepolis to go on to lift their first Hazfi Cup since 2011.
