Reigning champion Abahani Limited went four points close to table-topper Bashundhara Kings after the former romped to a 3-0 win over Arambagh Krira Sangha in the Bangladesh Premier League at Shaheed Bhulu Stadium in Noakhali Friday.

The Sky Blues are second in the 13-team points table with 45 points from 18 matches, while the Kings have 49 points, having played a game less.

Arambagh on the other hand are fifth with 23 points from 18 games.

After a goalless first half, Abahani went ahead in 46th minute when Nigerian striker Sunday Chizoba converted from the penalty spot, getting the better of goalkeeper Himel, after forward Jewel Rana was fouled inside the box.

The Dhanmondi outfit could’ve doubled the lead in the 55th minute but Himel saved Sunday’s header from a free-kick.

Abahani again got a good opportunity to make it 2-0 in the 62nd minute but Nabib Newaj Jibon’s shot went wide.

In the 71st minute, Himel gathered Sunday’s headed effort from a Rubel Mia chip while the Arambagh keeper once again denied the opposition six minutes later, this time Jewel’s volley from a Rubel cross. 

Abahani finally doubled the lead in the 86th minute as Jewel placed home after a Sunday pass.

The Sky Blues made it 3-0 in the injury time when Faisal Ahmed Shital headed home from a Imtiaz Sultan Jitu cross.
