Donis ready for Persepolis challenge

Persepolis went undefeated on home soil during the group stage of the tournament, Donis remains convinced that his side can break that streak. 

Al Hilal, who will be without suspended striker Nasser Al-Shamrani, finished atop the Group C table, with their 2-1 win over Al Sadd in the final round of group fixtures seeing them finish ahead of the Qatar outfit in the final standings.

However, Donis has asserted that his side cannot afford to make the same mistakes they did against Al Sadd when they face Persepolis. 

"Although we made some mistakes against Al-Sadd, I have full confidence in my players and they will fix these mistakes," the Greek mentor said.
