Bangladesh Premier League champions Abahani managed to 1-1 draw against Indian outfit Aizwal FC in their Group E encounter of AFC Cup at Bangabandhu National Stadium today.

Abahani, who were looking for a back-to-back win over the Indian outfit, were unimpressive throughout the game except for the last five minutes and were lucky to secure one point despite taking the lead against the run of the play.

Nigerian Emeka Darlington put Abahani ahead sending the opponent goalkeeper the wrong way from the spot on the half-hour mark before Romanian midfielder Andrei Ionnescu levelled the margin with a side volley in the 64th minute.

After four matches, Abahani`s point tally stands at four while Aizwal managed their very first point after four matches. Bengaluru FC and New Radiant SC are on nine and six points respectively from three matches.
