The hosts were showed great fluidity and precision in the match they exhibited at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on Nov 13's first session, which is won by 2-0.

In either half of the first game, Mahbubur Rahman Sufil showed a determination to strike from the beginning. Mohammad Ibrahim fired at the 23rd minute. Slightly over Jibon's pass before the box of Nepal, squandering the first half's best opportunity on the home side.
The teams scarcely checked the keeper, but their hosts were not surprised when Nawayug Shrestha's header touched the far corner of the game in the final seconds.
Outstanding playoff by both teams. Congratulations to Bangladesh for a superb match against Nepal.
