Abahani have earned 51 points from 20 matches, four points behind the Kings who have a game in hand while Mohammedan collected only 17 points from 19 matches to sit at ninth with only one point away from the relegation zone

Although those days are long gone when Abahani and Mohammedan tie was the talk of the country as the whole nation used to ignite for the occasion, the so-called Dhaka derby, but the game still bears some enthusiasm left to the respective traditional football fans.

Before the ongoing season’s last Abahani-Mohammedan derby at the Bangabandhu National Stadium at 7pm Tuesday, the Sky Blues sit second in the table with little hope of bagging their seventh premier league title outracing unbeaten Bashundhara Kings at the top while Mohammedan are struggling at the bottom half of the table.

Abahani have earned 51 points from 20 matches, four points behind the Kings who have a game in hand while Mohammedan collected only 17 points from 19 matches to sit at ninth with only one point away from the relegation zone. Mohammedan have also received record 10 defeats in the tournament so far. 

The Black and Whites were no match to Abahani when the two sides faced each other in the opening phase as they got a 3-0 thrashing at the same venue. League’s top scorer, Nigerian striker Sunday Chizoba stole the show with two goals while South Korean midfielder Ko Min-hyuk added the other.

Meanwhile in the day’s other encounters, there will be four more matches at four separate venues with leaders Bashundhara Kings hosting Brothers Union at Sheikh Kamal Stadium in Nilphamari with an eye to extend their record 12-match winning run and maintain the lead at the top.

Bottom-placed Team BJMC will take on Rahmatganj MFS in the other match at the BNS while Nofel Sporting Club host Sheikh Russel at Shahid Bulu Stadium in Noakhali and Muktijoddha SKC host Arambagh Krira Sangha at Sheikh Fazlul Haque Mani Stadium in Gopalganj.
