Dordoi secure back to back Kyrgyz Premier League titles
Bishkek: FC Dordoi completed their bid for a second successive Kyrgyz Premier League title in dominant style, sealing the championship win with a 5-0 success over Abdish-Ata Kant on Saturday.
Mustafa Iusuopv scored a double for Alexander Krestinin’s side, with Vahyt Orazsahedov, Mirlan Murzaev and Mamatziia Zholdoshov all finding the net as Alexander Krestinin’s side retained the title with a match to spare.
The Bishkek club were as many as eight points behind fellow contenders FC Alay Osh earlier in the season, but a consistent run of results and a league-leading 17 goals from Orazsahedov ensured Dordoi became champions for an 11th time.
Ćeran the hat-trick hero as Pakhtakor complete domestic double
Tashkent: Serbian star Dragan Ćeran scored a brilliant hat-trick as FC Pakhtakor completed a domestic double by lifting the Uzbekistan Cup, defeating defending champions AGMK 3-0 at Lokomotiv Stadium on Saturday.
Čeran scored the first half-opener and two more after the interval to guide Pakhtakor to a record-extending 12th Uzbekistan Cup and continue a stunning individual campaign, which has also produced 22 goals in 21 league appearances.
AGMK had been hoping to qualify for the Preliminary Stage of the 2020 AFC Champions League with victory in the match, but Mirdjalal Kasimov’s side were unable to repeat their 3-1 win from the 2018 decider.
Pakhtakor’s place in next year’s ACL has already been secured by virtue of their runaway Uzbekistan Super League title win.
