Bagan play 1-1 draw against Maziya, confirm knock-out berth

first_imgMale, Apr 28 (PTI) An injury-time diving header from striker Jeje Lalpekhlua earned Mohun Bagan a 1-1 draw against Maziya Sports & Recreation of Maldives as the Indian side confirmed their knockout round berth with an unbeaten record here today. Mohun Bagan, who came into the penultimate Group C match with a clean slate, were on the verge of tasting their first loss in five games before India international Lalpekhluas last-gasped strike in the third minute of the stoppage time saved them the blushes. Maziya Sports & Recreation captain Abdulla Asadhulla had put the home side ahead in the 65th minute at the National Stadium here. With 11 points from five games, last season I-League champions Mohun Bagan are certain to end at the top of the group, a reflection of their impressive run of form in this continents second tier club competition. Top two teams from each of the eight groups qualify for the round of 16 stage. Looking to avenge their 2- 5loss in the first leg in Guwahati, Maziya came closest to breaking the deadlock in a goal-less first half when midfielder Ahmed Imaaz struck the woodwork from a free-kick inside 15 minutes before striker Abdulla opened the scoring for them 20 minutes after restart. But just as it seemed Maziya were going to hold on for their second straight home victory, Lalpekhluas diving header at the death claimed a hard-earned point for Mohun Bagan as they remained unbeaten in Group G. “Our boys tried until the last minute and we managed to score in the last minute. We are top of the group and that was our primary target,” said Mohun Bagan coach Sanjoy Sen. “The first half was not good for both teams and second half was okay. But this is my first AFC Cup and Im happy so far with the results,” he said after the match. More PTI PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img read more
