Atalan clash Toofan in their first game

29 Aug, 2015

De Maiwand Atalan and Toofan Harirod will face each other in their first game of the 2015 RAPL season today, 29th August at 4:00 PM at the AFF Stadium.

Both teams are considered to be on top their games this season and equipped with indomitable squads.

Today will be the second time the two will have a face-off over the last three years. Atalan played Toofan in the group stage back in 2014 for the first time and defeated them 2-1.

Toofan were the 2012 RAPL champions with a perfect winning record and they claimed the 3rd position with a commanding 4-0 win over Oqaban Hindukosh in 2013. However, 2014 wasn’t a good year for Toofan, they couldn’t pass the group play, producing a lackluster one draw, one win, and one loss record.

Atalan made to the semi-finals during the 2012 season but lost to Simorgh Alborz 1-2. 2013 was a painful, winless year for Atalan, losing all three games against Shaheen, De Abasin Sape, and Oqaban. They performed really well in 2014 but lost their golden chance to secure 3rd position in the league with a heartbreaking 4-5 defeat to De Spinghar Bazan.

Both sides have taken full preparations to dominant the pitch today. This should be an exciting clash to witness live and up close. Despite the match taking place on the first day of the week here in Afghanistan, a large crowd is expected later today here at the AFF Stadium.

All of the group stage matches will start at 4:00 pm this season. The matches will broadcast live on TOLO TV,Lemar TV ,Arman FM ,and Arakozai FM.  It will also be watchable on the RAPL YouTube page (www.youtube.com/afghanpremierleague).
