As an exception match of the Week-7 of MPT Myanmar National League 2018, Sagaing United played against Myawady FC yesterday evening at Aung San Stadium in Yangon. MNL has postponed its games due to the Myanmar’s national team participating in the AFC Asian Cup qualification rounds.
Sagaing could take the victory along with beating Myawady with 2-1 result.
Myawady were better at the kick off with a leading goal, scored by its sparkling player Thet Wai Moe even at the 9 minutes mark. But Sagaing soon got the upper hand and they could respond with an equalizer six minutes later with a long shot kicked by Sagaing’s expatriate player Friday.
After 1-1, Sagaing players seem to be in improved mindsets with mixed stable and speedy play.
Myawady altered their style of play with making three substitutions in the 15 minute after the restart of the second half.
As Sagaing made frequent attacking, Myawady played defensive style with careful football blocking in their backing position.
However, at the 60 minute mark, Sagaing gained their second or leading goals scored by Thiha Zaw via free kick.
In the remaining minutes, Sagaing were clever enough to manage the match with defensive style and ended the match with their win.
Sagaing United now stands in the 10th place with 8 played, 2 win, 2 draw and 4 losses while Myawady stands in the 12th or last place with 8 played, 2 draw and 6 losses.
