Abahani take on Minerva in AFC Cup qualifier today

SPORTS REPORTER, DHAKA

Abahani Limited will face their last hurdle to cross for final round tickets to the knockout stages of the AFC Cup competition when they will take on Minarva Punjab of India today.

The match will take place at the Indira Gandhi Stadium Guwahati, India at 4:30pm (BST).

The Indian side (Chennaiyin FC) will also play their last match against the bottom side and comparatively the easiest opponents of the group Manag Marshyandi Club of Nepal in Kathmandu today.

If the Chennaiyin FC would win today’s match against Manag then they would build up their collection to 11 points, so the match for Abahani against the Minarva Punjab have turned into a must win situation.

Abahani were very ill fated not to have the win in the home ground against Minarva Punjab despite taking lead first were forced to end on 2-2 draw following their brilliant 3-2 win against Chennaiying FC.

If they could win the  against Minarva Punjab in home match, then they would nothing to be lose in today's match, as they could book their place one match left to play.     

Abahani, however would have nothing to loss in today’s away match if they could win the their home match against Minarva Punjab.

The only setback for Abahani is the absence of Sunday, as has an excellent understanding with the Haitian forward Belfort, local forwards Nabib Newaz and others, but team manager Sattayajit Das Rupu told that they prepared to play without Sunday.

Rupu when talking to this correspondent yesterday from Guwahati over phone said, “Actually, certainly it is a setback for us but as it is a reality, we definite chalked out a game plan how we will play without Sunday, coach obviously has already gave his direction to the players what would be their tactics and technique in absence of Sunday.”  

Coach Mario Lemos said, “Abahani are now just stand at the brink of reaching the next round. All are in favour of the game, boys know that. They can only bring the team to the next round of the AFC Cup playing good game.”
