Dhaka Abahani Limited claimed a narrow win over Bangladesh Police FC in their opening match of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in the capital on Thursday.

Abahani beat Police FC by 1-0 goal as their Haitian forward Belfort Kervens Fils scored the winner in the 85th minute of the game.

Abahani were held to a goalless first-half after Police FC players successfully showcased defensive football tactics. However Belfort netted the winner five minutes before the final whistle to help his side securing a hard-fought win.

Sheikh Russel KC will begin their league campaign against Brothers Union at the same venue today.
