DOHA: Australian striker Mitchell Duke shrugged off a head injury to put Saudi Arabia’s Al-Taawoun into the Asian Champions League knockouts with a 1-0 win over Qatar giants Al-Duhail.

Duke’s head was heavily bandaged after a clash with Al-Duhail’s Almoez Ali minutes earlier, but he recovered to nod the winner from a corner on 86 minutes.

Al-Taawoun’s second win over Al-Duhail in the coronavirus-hit tournament put them into the round of 16 for the first time as the visitors advanced due to their head-to-head record, with both teams on nine points after six games.
