Default Match-Fixing?? : Abahani-Mohammedan Match Decided in Tie-breaker

Abahani defeated Mohammedan by 4-2 in Tie-breaker in the Federation Cup 3rd Place decider match today in Dhaka. This is Mohammedan's 3rd consecutive defeat to Abahani including the infamous 5-1 defeat this month.

Both Clubs tried to avoid this match showing the excuse of player injury. Both Abahani and Mohammedan failed to fulfill their supporter’s expectation in all tournaments since last year. This year is the worst year for both club including couple of humiliating defeat. Several news media reported that both club officials came to an agreement to avoid the game because any further defeat to any side will become the victim of supporters rage. But Football Federation forced them to play. Janakantha reported yesterday that there is a chance of math fixing where both club will avoid defeat in the 90 minute match and then go tie-breaker for trying their luck. This way they both will be able to avoid defeat in the match and a tie-breaker defeat is much more of a consolation to the supporters. It will be a shameful incident if the Janakantha report of a possible match-fixing come true.

The result of today's match exactly followed the media report. 90 minute match was goal-less. Then in Tie-breaker, Abahani won the lottery. This might be a coincident. Or it might be an incident of match-fixing. We will have to wait till the sports report comes on tomorrow’s newspapers.

It may or may not be a fixed match.
BUT....isn't it shameful enough that we are in a situation to discuss a possible Abahani-Mohammedan match-fixing. From my childhood, I used to watch Abahani-Mohammedan match as an arch-rivalry, a classic thriller and a game of honor. Alas!! Now they came so down that people can even thing about match-fixing!!!

Daily Star on Abahani-Mohammedan Match-Fixing Allegation: It was nothing but a 'pure friendly'

The newspaper reports started to come. The Daily Star reports that Abahani and Mohammedan was involed in "match-fixing".

Daily Start report says:
With Mohammedan fielding a very inexperienced side resting captain Alfaz and Abahani forwards wasting sitter after sitter, the fans and critics eventually reached a verdict that the goalless 90 minutes was nothing but a 'pure friendly'.

i dont care. as long as it was not in the finals it doesnt make any difference. who cares about being 3 or 4. because 3rd or 4th place doesnt really matter too much for these teams anyway because they already have been the champions many time before. so when they found out that they wont be able to be the champions or the runners up they let it go. good decision. no point of playing big players in this match. well if it was a new team they would have surely played it because for them its a big achievement to come to this stage. but for abahani and mohamedan its nothing.

I am not sure if match fixing goes with this game. First Abahoni and Mohammedan both informed BFF that they are not interested to play the 3rd position decider. But was forced to play. Neither cared, did not try to win it either, thus you got the tie breaker.

Normally a match is fixed to let one win to gain significant advantage. This was the opposite, none wanted to play and had to go there, shoot the ball, for heck of it.

Whats new in our football culture? The type of ppl running the BFF is pathetic, so are the club ppl. The problem is that our domestic cricket has a tendency to follow the same culture of football, which is very unfortunate.
