AFC Cup 2018: Aizawl's lull at the continental stage continues; lose 0-3 at home to Abahani

IT took just two minutes for Abahani to open the scoring at the Indira Ghandi Athletic Stadium, as a Rubel Miya effort deflected off Chawnghlut Lalrosanga and looped into the net.

The visitors extended their lead in the 17th minute when Ndukaku Alison converted a scrappy effort from close range after a corner wasn’t cleared, before Seiya Kojima made it 3-0 from just inside the area eight minutes before half time.

Things were tighter in the second half, with Aizawl managing to prevent Abahani from adding to the score but also failing to register themselves.

The two sides will come head to head again on April 25, when Aizawl will be targeting revenge for this loss in the return fixture in Dhaka. report
