Saif Sporting make it three wins in a row
Newcomer Saif Sporting Club registered their third straight victory in the Bangladesh Premier Football League as they comfortably defeated Muktijoddha Sangsad Krira Chakra 2-0 at Bangabandhu National Stadium on Friday. After losing the league opener against holder Dhaka Abahani Limited, big-spending Saif Sporting scripted three wins in a row, which placed them at third position in the points table with nine points from four matches. Muktis moved to seventh with six points from the same number of outings. Colombian forward Hember Arley gave Saif Sporting the lead in the 54th minute with a lovely effort. Jewel Rana skipped past a defender inside the right side of the box before passing back to Hember, who showed great skill to receive the ball with his right foot before placing home past the Muktis goalkeeper with a calm left-footer. In the 67th minute, national midfielder Jamal Bhuiyan delivered a brilliant lob to Jewel Rana at the top of the penalty area but the latter’s shot from the right side of the box went straight to the hands of the opposition custodian. Matin Miah doubled the lead with a brilliant solo effort in the 74th minute. Youngster Matin snatched the ball from the opponent, exchanged one-touch passes with Hember to break into the penalty area before firing a shot toward Uttam Barua, who tried to fist the ball away but instead it bounced into his own net. Meanwhile in the day’s other match at the same venue, Arambagh Krira Sangha earned their first point in the league this season, as well as their first win, when they beat Brothers Union 2-1. The first two goals came in the very early stages of the game. The Motijheel outfit went ahead courtesy an own goal with five minutes into the clock. Nigerian striker Bukola Alamu entered the penalty area but his shot was fisted away by the Brothers netminder Abdul Kader. The rebound hit Brothers captain Ashraful Karim’s head before entering into his own net. Bukola doubled the lead four minutes later from a fine build-up. Midfielder Robiul Hasan set up the attack with a defence-splitting through pass that allowed Shahriar Bappy feed the unmarked Bukola in front of the post and the Nigerian made no mistake tapping home from the six-yard box. Siyo Zunapiyo reduced the arrears moments before the final whistle but it proved to be too little, too late at the end. RESULTS Saif Sporting 2 (Hember 54, Matin 74) 0 Muktijoddha Arambagh 2 (Ashraful 5 - OG, Bukola 9) 1 Brothers (Zunapiyo 90+3)
