FC Nasaf traveled to Almalyk in this afternoon knowing that a win would see them return to the top of the Oliy league.
But the Dragons faced off a 0-1 defeat inside the winning goal in 49 minutes of action where Ruzikul Berdiev side tried to strike back through taking the lead on ball possession and number of attacks to give themselves hope of turning things around before the final whistle.
However, this early goal at the beginning of the second half was the only goal as this matchday has been already named as sensational where FC Lokomotiv, FC Bunyodkor, and FC Nasaf lost.
