The tie was inconsequential considering both teams were already out of the race to reach the knockout phase of AFC Cup. It was a spirited comeback from Bagan, who trailed for most part of the match.

Katsumi scored the all-important goal after the team earned a penalty.

The game at the Bangabandhu National Stadium was also affected by rain.
