The 2011–12, inaugural season of the Iran Pro League match between Persepolis and Esteghlal at Azadi Stadium took place on 2 February 2012.The match Which is Known as 10 -10 -3 or 10 min -10 men -3 Goals, specially among fans of the winner, Persepolis and Those damn 10 minutes among fans of Esteghlal is one of the most notable matches between the two in Tehran derby.[1]


After losing four times in a row, Persepolis and its fans were desperate for a win over their blue rivals. Head coach Mustafa Denizli had returned to the reds for the second half of the season and had previously experienced victory over Esteghlal back in 2006. Persepolis found themselves 2-0 down yet again and had Mehrdad Oladi very harshly sent off for what was seen as just a foul. Mazloumi and blues fans were beginning celebrations of yet another victory over their rivals as Persepolis fans began to leave the stadium when suddenly newly signed forward Eamon Zayed bagged a goal back for the reds in the 82nd minute. Persepolis were lifted by this goal and Zayed immediately connected with Mehdi Mahdavikia's excellent cross a minute later and levelled the score to 2-2 with a fine header. The last five minutes of the game was very open with Persepolis looking more lively and in the 92nd minute of the match, Hossein Badamaki's cross found Zayed yet again and the Libyan striker turned his defender and finished brilliantly to round off a historic hat-trick and great win for Persepolis and its fans.[2][3][4][5][6]
