The Kings suffered a major blow at the start of their mission to become hat-trick champions. The second round of the league will start on Monday with the return match of that match.
The champions have overcome the initial push quite well. The Kings have drawn two of the remaining 10 matches of the first season. The rate could not touch them anymore. They have drawn the last two matches against Abahani and Sheikh Jamal. Even then they are the table leader with 26 points.
In the first match, Swadhinata Krira Sangha lost to Bashundhara Kings. This time the match will be played at Muktijuddha Smriti Stadium in Home Venue Rajshahi. Interestingly, after that victory in the first match, Swadhinata Krira Sangha did not have the good fortune to lose the opponent. Only managed to draw 3 matches in the next 10 matches. They are now at the bottom of the points table.
The match between Kings with 26 points and Swadhinata Krira Sangha with 6 points is the favorite whether it is at home or away. Sudden events can happen in football, it will not happen every day. Both teams will keep that result in mind before going on the field in this match.
In their home match, Swadhinata Krira Sangha would like to draw but to cause another incident. And Bashundhara Kings? They will want to burn the Swadhinata Krira Sangha in the fire of revenge. The fight between the top and bottom teams is also coming up for discussion. That is because of the non-occurrence of the first meeting.
