"Senagatbank" defeats "Denizchi" for the second time and makes a bid for the championship

"Senagatbank" made a strong bid for victory in the Turkmenistan Futsal Super League by defeating the current four-time national champion "Denizchi" 3:0 in the 9th round.

The first half did not bring success to either team. In the second half, Mergen Ataev's team won with goals by Rakhatmyrat Nepesov (25th minute), Mekan Khayytmukhamedov (30th), and Aymyrat Magtymov (39th).

After inflicting the second defeat in head-to-head matches against their main rival for the gold medals, "Senagatbank" scored 27 points out of a possible 27 and increased their lead over second-placed "Denizchi" by 9 points.

Following this setback for the team of the International Seaport of Turkmenbashi, the battle for the silver medals of the national championship has intensified. This was largely due to "Kopetdag's" 4:2 victory over "Migration". Mulkkaman Annagulyev scored a brace (18th and 33rd minutes) for the Ministry of Internal Affairs team, while Sakhetmyrat Atdaev (34th) and Vatan Ataev (36th) scored once each. Ismailmukhamet Ovekov (35th) and Dayanch Garajaev (39th) scored goals for "Migration.

After this game, "Kopetdag", occupying third place in the standings, has 16 points, reducing the gap from "Denizchi" to 2 points.

Noteworthy in this round is also the first victory in the Turkmenistan Super League-2024 for Dashoguz's "Turan" over TCOR, with a score of 4:3. During the match, Dashoguz initially trailed 0:2 and then 1:3. Three minutes before the end, they were down 2:3, and it seemed TCOR would hold on to their lead.

However, "Turan's" futsal players managed not only to save the game in the remaining time but also to secure a hard-fought victory thanks to a goal in the last minute. Azizbek Rozimov scored a brace (13th and 19th minutes) for the winners, while Farukh Abdiyazov (38th) and Sapargeldi Matiev (40th) scored once each. For the defeated team, goals were scored by Tanryberdi Amangeldiyev (5th), Chariyar Gurbanniyazov (6th) and Maksat Amanov (14th).

After this victory, "Turan" gained 4 points, reducing the gap to 1 point behind the second-to-last placed TCOR.

In the 10th round, "Turan" will play "Migration", "Kopetdag" will face "Senagatbank", and "Denizchi" and TCOR will determine the strongest team in the Balkan derby.
