The situation here is very clear. In two rounds until the end of the season, Sanat Naft is leading a „deadly“ race with Mes Kerman to keep their place in the Persian Gulf Pro League. They are in good form undefeated in the last 4 rounds (2-2-0), taking a big point away from Esteghlal F.C. Zob Ahan secured their place in the league, and are one of the worst away teams without a single win 0-8-6. The home side is highly motivated to take the win in order to keep their survival chances alive.
