Bam Khatoon and Sogdiana primed for rematch

It will be a winner takes all match at the Markaziy Stadium, after both sides played to a 1-1 draw in their opener two days ago.
Sogdiana-W had a slow start to their debut in the pilot tournament, but slowly dominated the match with Khabibullaeva Diyorakhon opening the scoring in the 20th minute, only to be denied a win when Zahra Ghanbari equalised for the Iranian champions.
Bam Khatoon head coach Marziyeh Jafaribaravati, meanwhile, is expecting an even more difficult match ahead, but is sure her charges will perform better than the first match.
“It won’t be easier. In fact, because it’s the last match, it will be tougher,”said Jafaribaravati.
“We analysed the first match and the players are ready for tomorrow. The match is like a final but as we have already played against them, I think we will play better.
“All I can say to my players is to do their best and try as much as possible so we can go home happy.”
