Esteghlal suffered a 2-0 loss against Al-Hilal in the 2021 AFC Champions League Round of 16 in Dubai's Al-Wasl Stadium.

"Our players gave their best and despite creating chances, we failed to convert them," said the former international player.

"Al Hilal is a strong team and it has influential foreign players," he added.

"I want to thank the players for what they did. It was a difficult match as our preparations were not perfect while our opponents changed their style of play specifically for this match," Majidi concluded.
