Ashgabat's "Altyn Asyr" took the second place following the results of the 16th round of the Turkmenistan Football Championship among the top league clubs.

In the last round, the team led by the Honored Coach of Turkmenistan Yazguly Hojageldiyev won the capital derby against "Kopetdag" on their home field with a score of 1:0, and pulled 3 points ahead of "Akhal", which is in third place. Serdar Annaorazov scored the winning goal for the team of the "Turkmenargatnashyk" agency in the 78th minute.

After this victory, "Altyn Asyr" has 31 points. They are 11 points behind "Arkadag", which won their 14th victory in the current championship in this round, crushing "Energetik" from Mary – 6:0.

In the 30th minute, Resul Hojayev opened the score in this game, held in the Babarap gengeshlik in Geokdepe etrap of Akhal velayat. In the 35th minute, Saparguly Arzuvgulyyev doubled the result. Didar Durdyev, top scorer of last year's national championship, scored a double at the start of the second half, in the 47th and 49th minutes. Two minutes later, Begmyrat Bayov increased "Arkadag's" lead to five goals. And Mekan Saparov set the final score in the 77th minute.

It is worth noting that in the 16th round, the hosts were unusually inhospitable: in four matches, the guests could not score a single goal.

Thus, in Balkanabat, the local "Nebitchi" won against "Ashgabat" 2:0 thanks to the efforts of Myratdurdy Bayramov (42nd minute) and Serdar Gulyyev (44th). And in the city of Turkmenbashy, "Shagadam" confidently defeated "Merv" from Mary – 3:0.

The main events in the last match unfolded in the second half. The hosts took the lead in the 60th minute after "Merv" player Ambyar Mahmudov deflected the ball into his own net. In the 74th minute, Mekan Ashyrov increased the lead to two goals. And Arslan Yollyyev capped off the match in the 86th minute.

After this victory, "Shagadam" with 24 points secured fourth place, 3 points ahead of "Merv", which has played one game less.

In the matches of the 17th round of the Turkmenistan Football Championship, the following teams will play: "Ashgabat" – "Akhal", "Kopetdag" – "Nebitchi", "Merv" – "Arkadag", and "Energetik" – "Altyn Asyr".
