Fed Cup Football: Ctg Abahani book QF spot, Rahmatganj sent packing

Chittagong Abahani moved into the quarterfinal of the season’s curtain raiser meet, the 32nd Federation Cup Football 2020, edging Rahmatganj MFS 1-0 in their first match of the group phase at the Bangabandu National Stadium here Friday.

Rahmatganj MFS, having finished second last time, exit early from this year’s meet with their 2nd successive defeat in the first round, ending with zero points and zero goals. In the end they never recovered from a thumping 3-0 defeat against holders Bashundhara Kings in the tournament opener.

In the day’s lone match, Brazilian booter Nixon scored the winner for the Port City’s very own Sky-blues in the 37th minute of the match.

Before the QFs though, the last matchday of the round robin phase will see Chittagong Abahani play defending champion Bashundhara Kings on Monday (December 28) to decide the Group C champions, or just bragging rights.
