Defending champions, Shaheen Asmayee football team on Tuesday reached the finals of the Roshan Afghan Premier League (RAPL) for the third time after beating Maujhai Amu by an aggregated score of 4-3.
Both teams started the game cautiously before Shaheen’s Hashmatullah Barekzai opened the scoring in the 9th minute of the game. The half time score was 1-1 after Amu’s Masoud Qarizada scored a brilliant goal in the 34th minute.
The final minutes of the game was very exciting as Amu’s players attacked the goal fearlessly but Shaheen held out to go through to the final of the RAPL.
Shaheen Asmayee will try to defend their title on Friday when they play the De Spinghar Bazan in the final match of the RAPL’s fourth season at the Afghanistan Football Federation (AAF) stadium.
The two semi-final losers, De Maiwand Atalan and Maujhai Amu will play on Thursday to determine who will finish third.
The matches will be broadcast live on TOLO TV, Lemar TV, Arman FM and Arakozai FM. Fans can also watch the live stream of the match shortly after the game on the RAPL YouTube page (www.youtube.com/afghanpremierleague).
