After getting reduced to 10 men, Kings fought hard to maintain their 1-0 lead, focusing more on defence then attack.

But all their fears got dispelled in the 81st minute when super sub Biplo Ahmed, who replaced Motin Mia, netted the second goal for the Kings, pretty much sealing the match for the defending champions.

Soon after the final whistle, the players and officials of the Kings started celebrating on the field.

This was the second consecutive victory for the Kings against Saif. They beat Saif 4-3 earlier in the league.
