Day two action of the resuming 2021/22 Betking Ethiopian premier league saw two games ending in a one all draw.
The lively early kick off between Sidama Bunna and Ethiopia Bunna ended in a one all draw.
Ethiopia Bunna’s possession based play against Sidama Bunna’s fast offensive transition was an eye catching contest.
Ethiopia Bunna enjoyed much of the ball but they lacked the cutting edge to unlock Sidama, Sidama Bunna opened the scoring after a turnover in Ethiopia Bunna’s half as Mehari Menna finished the move in style to give his side the lead.
But Abubeker Nasser equalized in the dying minutes of the first half with a mind blowing free kick goal.

Bahirdar moved to 6th with 21 points while Addis Ababa remained 14th with 15 points.
