2021 Tajikistan Higher League: gameweek 4

CSKA fight back to claim first victory, Kuktosh and Ravshan win, Istaravshan and Fayzkand ends in stalemate.

CSKA 3-1 FC Dushanbe
(Asoev 37 og, Dzhalilov 48, Fatkhulloev 59; Luc Mendjana 24)

Leonel outmuscled his marker to latch onto a defence-splitting through ball and steer the visitors in front inside 24 minutes. Thirteen minutes later, CSKA were back in it as Asoev’s botched headed clearance from a searching Dushanbe free-kick found his own net. All square at half-time, Dzhalilov poked in at the far post to give the hosts the advantage four minutes after the restart. Fatkhulloev, the engineer of CSKA’s first two goals, curled home from a dead ball just outside the Dushanbe penalty area to cap an impressive comeback victory.

Kuktosh 2-1 Eskhata
(Sultonov 65, Abdugafforov 76; Turaev 38)

Turaev glanced in from close range to give the visitors a first-half lead, before Sultonov equalised on 65 minutes, slotting home from a bobbling delivery into the Eskhata penalty area. Completing Kuktosh’s comeback, Abdugafforov broke on right before a fine finish into the bottom corner.

Ravshan 1-0 Khujand
(Shomurodov 52)

Istaravshan 0-0 Fayzkand
