Doha: Lekhwiya coach Michael Laudrup was in a cautious frame of mind despite seeing his

side hand Bunyodkor a 1-0 defeat in the AFC Champions League on Wednesday to move

into second place in Group A.

Vladimir Weiss scored the only goal of the game with a fine individual effort in the 43rdminute

to take Lekhwiya up to second in the group behind Iran’s Persepolis while Bunyodkor languish

at the bottom without a win from their four games so far.

Lekhwiya are now two points behind the Iranians and two clear of third-placed Al Nassr from Saudi

Arabia, but the former Denmark international refused to relax as the battle for a place in the Round

of 16 heats up.

“I’m happy to win against Bunyodkor again and we should have got a bigger victory but we didn’t take

advantage of our dominance in the match,” said Laudrup . “We had a great performance but we

missed the last touch.

“The win will give us a big push as we are now in second place in the group. However, things are not determined

yet as all the teams in the group still have a chance to advance to the knockout stage and we should put more effort

to achieve our target.”
