Bashundhara take giant lead towards title

Bashundhara have now 40 points from 14 matches and extended the gap by six points with second position holder Abahani, who have 34 points from same number of matches

Bashundhara Kings earned a massive victory on Sunday in the Bangladesh Premier League to give their title chances a heavy boost.

The league leaders beat defending champions Dhaka Abahani by a solitary goal at the Bangabandhu National Stadium thanks to an outstanding free kick of Bakhtiyar Duyshobekov.

With the win, Bashundhara have now 40 points from 14 matches and extended the gap by six points with second position holder Abahani, who have 34 points from same number of matches.


Abahani have now lost both the games against newly promoted cash-rich Bashundhara, who beat them 3-0 at Nilphamari, and their hope of defending the title of the 13-team league has become very bleak.
