Former treble winners Sheikh Russel Krira Chakra will be desperate to open their Bangladesh Premier League points tally when they face home side Chittagong Abahani today at MA Aziz Stadium in the port city. The match begins at 7:30pm and BTV and Baishakhi TV will telecast it live.
Sheikh Russel, who finished second in the top-flight last season, began their league campaign this season on a disappointing note, succumbing to defeats against unfancied Uttar Baridhara Club and Rahmatganj MFS.
The Blues therefore, will be looking to end their drought sooner rather than later, starting with the Chittagong Abahani tie.
However, it will be anything but easy against the hosts, who opened their mission with a 1-1 draw against powerhouse Abahani Limited before beating Mohammedan Sporting Club 4-2 in the next game.
