Premier football league resumes today

After a day recess, the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Football resumes today with 21st round. Two big matches which are scheduled to be held at on the day at Bangabandhu National Stadium.

On the day, Chittagong Abahani Limited will take on Saif Sporting Club at 4pm while Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club meet Mohammedan Sporting Club in the day’s other fixture at 7 pm.

Saif Sporting Club are currently at fourth position with 37 points from 19 matches while the port city team Chittagong Abahani Limited are placed at sixth position with 22 points playing the same number of outings.

Title contenders Bashundhara Kings dominated the points table maintaining their all-win run with 52 points from 18 matches followed by defending champions Abahani Limited with 48 points from 19 matches and Sheikh Russell Krira Chakra Limited are at third spot with 39 points from 18 outings.

However, reigning champions Abahani Limited have the every possibility to gap close in on Bashundhara following their laudable performance in the AFC Cup qualifying phase-I. If Abahani could topple Bashundhara in the second-leg plus current league leaders slip up in two or three matches might pave the way for them to back in the title hunt race.
