Yangon played Ayeyawady United to a 2-2 draw yesterday, the very first tie for Yangon of the 2018 season of the MPT Myanmar Naitonal League.
Yangon United’s lineup included star defender David Htan, midfielders Saun Lam Mang, Kousuke and Maung Maung Lwin and two of Yangon’s most reliable players, Emmannuel and Sylla.
Ayeyawady United scored at the 16-minute mark after the referee awarded a foul ball and Aung Hein Kyaw touched the ball into the net.
But Yangon equalized in less than a minute when Sekou Sylla scored with an assist by Kosuki from the left wing.
Yangon went ahead again as Ayeyawady defenders made a big mistake in the defensive line at 39 minutes. The goal made the score 2-1 in favour of Yangon.
In the second half, both teams continued to play well. Ayeyawady responded with a goal by Cassio at the 59-minute mark.
Yangon had a final chance to break the tie when Zon Moe Aung crossed the ball to Sylla, who was heading for the net, but the shot was too high and went over the crossbar.
Yangon United’s next match will be against Rakhine United on Friday.—KyawZin Lin
