The opening match of the 15th round of the Turkmenistan Football Championship among major league clubs ended in Ashgabat with a major victory for «Ahal» over Balkanabat’s «Nebitchi».

The game, in which the home team won with a score of 4:0, took place at the «Nisa» stadium.

The visiting team, which won bronze medals at the national championship last year, was already in the minority in the 4th minute due to Shohrat Aydogdyyev being sent off for a flagrant foul. And soon Dovletmyrat Annayev’s team, taking advantage of the numerical majority, opened the scoring. The goal was scored in the 23rd minute by Akmammet Metdayev. With the result 1:0 in favour of «Ahal», the players went to the break.

In the second half, the advantage of the team of the Main Directorate «Turkmennebitonumleri» became even more noticeable. In the 59th minute, «Ahal» captain Elman Tagayev doubled the result by converting a penalty. And then Gurbanmuhammet Esenov scored a double in the 62nd 85th minute, setting the final score.

The first round match between these teams, held on the 6th of April in Balkanabat, also ended with the victory of «Ahal» - 1:0.

Having won their ninth victory in the national championship, «Ahal» strengthened its position in second place with 28 points. The capital's «Altyn Asyr» is 3 points behind it, which was awarded a technical victory with a score of 3:0 in the unfinished away match of the 10th round with the Turkmenbashy’s «Shagadam». At the same time, the «Turkmenaragatnashyk» agency team played two fewer matches.

In the next round, in which «Ahal» will be free from the game, «Nebitchi» will host «Ashgabat».

The 15th round of the Turkmenistan football championship will end with the matches: «Energetik» - «Shagadam», «Kopetdag» - «Arkadag» and «Ashgabat» - «Altyn Asyr».
