Dhaka Abahani outplayed Chittagong Abahani during their Bangladesh Premier League match by 2-0 goals at Bangabandhu National Stadium in the capital on Monday.

Abahani’s man in form Nabib Newaz Jibon along with proven foreign recruit Sunday Chizoba made the difference for Abhani.

On Monday, Abahani took the charge early on in the match with some blistering attacks as their foreign recruit Sunday Chizoba took the game to their sister club from Chattogram.

On the 2nd minute of the match, Dhaka Abahani nearly broke the deadlock as their Haitian recruit Kervens Belfort backpassed the ball to Chizoba who could not give the direction to the ball.

But it didn’t take long for Abahani to take the lead as Newaj broke the deadlock for Abahani on the 10th minute of the match

In their reply, Chittagong Ahabani also started to catch up with Abahani attacks. Chittagong Abahani forwards sneaked through right wing to fire a bulleting cross only to be cleared by Abhani defence.

Chittagong Abahani carried on with his attempts, as they swung a beauty of a ball from a free-kick on the 28th minute but was gloved to perfection by Abahani goalie Shahidul Alam.

At the start of the match, Sunday missed a cake of an opportunity on the 33rd minute, as Sunday blasted the star-bound shot failing to utilise a goal-line chaos at Jamal box.

But just before the end of the first-half, Abahani doubled their lead courtesy of a sensational goal from Sunday Chizoba as Abahani went home preserving their 2-0 goal lead.

In the other match of the day Arambagh Krira Sangha thrashed Team BJMC by 2-1 goals.
