Bottom-ranked Arambagh KS pulled off the biggest upset in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Football, outplaying former champion Sheikh Jamal DC by 3-1 goals at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on Tuesday.
Despite the victory, Arambagh KS remained at the bottom of the 13-team league securing five points from 16 matches.
In the match, Arambagh KS not only tasted the first victory in the league but also took revenge of their embarrassing 6-0 goals defeat against Sheikh Jamal in the first phase league.
With the day's maiden defeat in their 15 league match, Sheikh Jamal DC went to third place in the league table after Bashundhara Kings (43 points) and Dhaka Abahani Ltd (32) with their previous credit of 32 points from 15 encounters.
In Tuesday’s match, both sides had scored a goal in the first half.
Gambian forward Omar Jobe put Sheikh Jamal ahead in the 15th minute (1-0) while Uzbek striker Islomjon Abdukadyrov restored the parity for Arambagh KS in the stoppage time (45+1) of the first half (1-1).
Midfielder Omar Faruq and local forward Nihat Zaman Ucchash scored two quick goals for Arambagh KS in the span of only three minutes (54th and 57th) to seal the fate of the match much to the frustration of three-time champion Sheikh Jamal.
