High Quality United FC (HQUFC) will take on Paro United FC (PUFC) in the ongoing 2020 BoB Bhutan Premier League tomorrow at Changlimithang Stadium.

The tournament remained suspended since August 11 due to the nationwide lockdown. Only six games were played as of August 10.

The matches will be played behind-closed-door without spectators.  However, MyCujoo sports network will broadcast the matches live as usual.

PUFC’s  Skipper, Tshering Dendup, said that HQUFC was a competent team considering the presence of few national players. “But we will compete.”

“Our team had practised thrice as of yesterday following the lifting of lockdown. We have resorted to self-training at home during the lockdown” said Tshering Dendup.

In the previous match, both HQUFC and PUFC have lost to Ugyen Academy FC and Thimphu City FC with 3-1 and 2-1 goals respectively.

HQUFC’s Manager Dorji said that tomorrow’s match was crucial for his team and he expects to snatch a win. “So far, there is not much point difference among the teams in the table. If we win this match, we will get three points to maintain our status.”

“During the Bhutan Super League early this year, our team had defeated the PUFC in the final. We will keep this trend,” said Dorji.

Dorji said that his players have self-trained amid lockdown by learning necessary steps from YouTube. “Our regular training is underway.”

Ugyen Academy FC, Thimphu City FC, Transport United FC and Paro FC have played two matches each. Tensung FC and Druk Stars FC have featured one match each.

So far, Ugyen Academy FC leads the table with four points.
