Decisive game ahead of Simorgh

25 Sep, 2016

Another sensational competition is on the way at the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) stadium. Shaheen Asmayee, in a returning, will go head to head with Simorgh Alborz. This is the first returning game Roshan Afghan Premier League (RAPL) 2016 semi-finals. The pitch will be kicked-off at 2:30 pm.

Previously, both teams contested at the first leg, Simorgh conceded the game 8-1 to Shaheen. Though Simorgh took an early lead, Shaheen banished thoughts of back-to-back strikes and goals. Extraordinarily, Shaheen netted five goals in the first-half and another three in the second-half, killing Simorgh’s chance to advance to RAPL 2016 final.

Samiullah Mohammadi, Shaheen’s captain, and its prominent goalie, Kawash Hiadari are not in the line-up for today. This could be a fortunate point for the rival, Simorgh, to take advantage of.

Simorgh Alborz kicked-off RAPL 2015 with a confident 3-1 victory over Shaheen Asmayee; however, it was not able to halve the deficit at Shaheen’s home just few days ago. To advance to RAPL 2016 final, Simorgh needs to secure 8-0 thunderbolt triumph over Shaheen in today’s pitch.

With its remarkable 8-1 victory over Simorgh on September 22, 2016, Shaheen tends to have a much better chance of advancing to final; yet, soon to judge.
