AFC Cup 2023: Mohun Bagan vs Dhaka Abahani – Build-up

Mohun Bagan SG and Dhaka Abahani will compete for a place in the 2023 AFC Cup group stages after navigating through the qualifying fixtures. The Mariners set up the clash with the Bangladeshi outfit after defeating Nepal’s Machhindra FC thanks to a 3-1 scoreline on 16 August 2023. 

The upcoming match will be a replay from last year when MBSG, formerly known as ATK Mohun Bagan, met Dhaka Abahani and got the better of them in a hotly contested affair. Therefore, the Sky Blue Brigade will seek revenge and dump the Indian Super League 2022-23 winners out of contention. 

Here is what to look for as both the Indian and Bangladeshi outfit gear up to face each other for a place in the 2023 AFC Cup group stage:

The Stakes

Mohun Bagan SG is aiming to secure a 2023 AFC Cup group-stage qualification after beating Machhindra FC in the previous qualifying round. The outfit has an incredible selection of Indian and foreign players. The fans have high demands from the Mariners and playing on the Asian stage is one of the ambitions of the club. Therefore, the upcoming game becomes a must-win contest for the team.

Dhaka Abahani beat Club Eagles of the Maldives to set up the mouth-watering clash with Juan Ferrando’s men. Their last qualification into the AFC Cup took place in 2019 and the club is hungry to get back onto the continental stage. Despite being the underdogs, the Sky Blue Brigade will be a tough nut to crack for MBSG.
