Persepolis FC is a club based in the country of Iran. And now they have a mighty group stage opening challenge to square up against Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Al Nassr side.
Last season Persepolis lifted their domestic league title which is the Persian Gulf Pro League and now will be focusing on their Group E continental fixture.
After Al Nassr announced the signing of “Mr. Champions League” fans were eager when Ronaldo will step foot in the Asian version of the Champions League. As Al Nassr wasn’t in last season’s edition, we will now see Cristiano Ronaldo kick off the 2023-24 AFC Champions League group stage action against the Iranian outfit Persepolis FC.
Al Nassr defeated Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club in the playoffs last month to feature in the 2023-24 AFC Champions League group stages.
