AFC Cup Preliminary Round
Saif SC eliminated losing second match
Saif Sporting Club was eliminated from the AFC Cup Preliminary Round 2018 following a 3-1 defeat to the Maldives league runners-up Trust and Care Sports Club on Wednesday midnight at the National Stadium, Male in the Maldives.
All the goals were netted in the first half of the match.
The fourth placers of Bangladesh Premier League had lost their first match to the same rivals by 1-0 margin a few days back at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.
The calculation was like that the boys had to win with at least two goals to confirm the next round. Losing the home match made it harder for them. On the other hand, only a draw was enough for the Maldives side who were in a better position winning their away match.
