With the Bangladesh Premier League set to resume today, the top teams are wondering if they can maintain the form they showed before the league was interrupted five weeks ago due to matches. AFC Cup and Asian Cup Qualifiers or not.

Clubs stopped training to give players rest and only restarted their camps about two weeks ago, leaving coaches worried about showing consistency in the coming days, especially in the coming days. with a muddy yard and heavy rain.

League leaders Bashundhara Kings and fourth-placed club Saif Sporting Club were in superb form before half-time, posting four straight wins after the mid-season transfer window, while the top teams like Abahani and Sheikh Jamal are also in good form, dropping points in only one game each in that time.

“The halftime break hurt us a lot because we found our rhythm again. After that, not only did we have five players leave the national team, we couldn’t even make it. play friendly matches,” Saif SC’s Argentinian coach Diego Andres Cruciani told The Daily Sao yesterday.

Bashundhara Kings coach Oscar Bruzon is concerned about another problem ahead of the game against Rahmatganj in Munshiganj today, stressing that the fields in Bangladesh are not equipped to deal with heavy rain.

“Football fields in Bangladesh lack proper drainage and soil so matches often become physical ones. [when it rains heavily]. The creativity and talent of the players are disabled,” the Spaniard told The Daily Star. In my opinion, the rainy season should be excluded to create a more attractive tournament. Or at least there are courts that allow playing in rainy weather. “

On the other hand, Abahani’s coach Mario Lemos is fully focused on the team’s performance. “It’s been a long break and of course it’s not easy to play in the rain. But we’re ready to try to win every game,” Lemos told The Daily Star.

The Kings are in the lead, six points ahead of second-placed Abahani with seven games remaining, and are going game by game as they chase a league championship hattrick.

“Honestly, we’re not thinking about the bigger picture, but preparing the team to compete at our maximum level game by game can guarantee the title,” added Oscar, who has the edge. than other candidates as all his players – including four Bangladesh players unable to represent the national team following injury – are available to choose from.

Lemos, who will be boosted by the return of Brazilian forward duo Dorielton Gomes and centre-back Raphael Augusto, thinks it will be difficult to catch up with the Kings so they focus on themselves.

“It’s very difficult. Six points is a big gap. But we have to believe and try to get the most points. Hopefully our opponent will drop points.”

The relegation battle is also heating up, with Swadhinata KS, Muktijoddha, Rahmatganj and Uttar Baridhara battling for survival.
