Altyn Asyr came out on top of the Inter-Zonal final...

The Inter-Zonal final saw Altyn Asyr crowned champions on away goals after a 1-1 draw with 4.25 SC at home in the second leg. 


Altyn Asyr 1-1 4.25 SC (Aggr: 3-3) (Orazsakhedov 64' - Han Song- hyok 7')


Altyn Asyr, after a 2-2 draw in the first leg away, held 4.25 SC to a 1-1 draw at home to seal their spot in the AFC Cup grand final. 

It looked like the North Korean side would enjoy a good day when they took the lead in the seventh minute. Sim Hyon-jin's shot was parried on to Han Song-Hyok's path by the goalkeeper and 4.25 SC player made no mistake by turning it in. 

Altyn Asyr did respond but just could not find a way through while they also had to be sturdy at the back against a quick 4.25 attack. But Altyn Asyr were handed a penalty in the 64th mintue when Serdar Annaorazov was chopped down by Kim Bol-chom inside the area. Orazsakhedov made no mistake by converting the penalty and equalise. 

Altyn Asyr would hold on to the lead and ensure they booked a spot in the grand final.
