Mohammedan nearly made it three wins in a row before Brothers Union came back from a three-goal deficit to claim a point at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Wednesday

After struggling in the first phase of the Bangladesh Premier League, Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited turned around and won their first two matches in the second leg against Team BJMC and Arambagh Krira Sangha. 

Mohammedan nearly made it three wins in a row before Brothers Union came back from a three-goal deficit to claim a point at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Wednesday.

The match was important for the two clubs, as both were near the relegation zone. 

A victory in this match could have seen Mohammedan crawl out of trouble. 

This draw takes Mohammedan to 10th place in the points table, with 13 points from 14 matches. 

Meanwhile, Brothers sit in 12th place with nine points. 

In the 23rd minute of the match, Mohammedan took the lead with Toklis Ahmed’s goal. 

They managed to score twice more before half time as Yousuf Sifat scored in the 42nd and 44th minutes of the tie. 

Mohammedan were cruising along convincingly till the 68th minute with a comfortable three-goal lead.

However, Brothers managed to turn the match around dramatically, snatching a point from the Black and Whites.

Mannaf Rabbi scored twice for Brothers while Shafikul Islam Shafi netted the other.

All six goals of the game were scored by local footballers, which rarely happens in Bangladesh’s domestic football.
