Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club begin its Bangladesh Premier League journey with flying colours following a 2-1 win over Chittagong Abahani on Monday.
With this win, Jamal boys took revenge on the opponents of their 2-0 defeat to them in a match of the abandoned 2019-20 BPL in February last year. In the Monday match at Bangabandhu National Stadium, Sk Jamal went ahead in the 40th minute. Their Gambian striker Solomon Kings Kanform was grounded near the box and referee Mizanur Rahman awarded them a freekick. Uzbekistan midfielder Vali Jonov Otabek took the shot which hit the farpost after touching opponent striker Nixon slightly.
After the breather, the Dhanmondi team doubled the lead. In the 50th minute, striker Nurul Absar utilised a cross of defender Monir Hossain to score the second goal. The port city team managed to reduce the margin just six minutes before the long whistle. Chittagong Abahani’s Brazilian striker Nixon Guylherme Rocha rocked the post with a calculated shot getting a freekick.
The rest of the match was uneventful. There are two matches on Tuesday. In the first one, Bangladesh Police FC will meet Bashundhara Kings at 3:30 pm while Brothers Union and Dhaka Abahani will play the second one at 6:00 pm.
