2nd Div League : Four Teams In The Hunt For Final Round Qualification
The 2nd Division League is all set to witness some scintillating group-stage action tomorrow (March 4, 2017) when all four Group A teams, Real Kashmir, Delhi United, Sudeva Moonlight FC and Lonestar Kashmir, will battle it out for the remaining two final round slots.
Having garnered 9 points from 5 matches, table toppers Real Kashmir will lock horns with Delhi United at the Ambedkar Stadium in New Delhi at 3 PM tomorrow. Delhi United are currently at the third spot with 6 points from 5 matches, which means that anything less than a victory won't serve their purpose.
In the other clash, Lonestar Kashmir will take on Sudeva FC at the Sudeva Football Ground in the Capital city at the same time. Lonestar Kashmir have amassed 7 points from 5 games while Sudeva have only managed 5 points having played the same number of games.
Sudeva will not only need a victory in their last match to qualify but also will have to be dependent on the outcome of the match between Real Kashmir and Delhi United.
In the reverse leg, Delhi United had the last laugh against Real Kashmir when they secured a clinical 2-0 victory, owing to goals from Stephen Harry (39′) and Khwetelhi Thopi (68′) in either half of the match.
Lonestar Kashmir also had a comfortable 2-0 away victory against Sudeva Moonlight FC in the first leg thanks to strikes from Bilal Ahmed (24′) and Aakif Javaid (89′).
The top two teams from Group A will be joining the likes of Neroca FC, Southern Samity, Fateh Hyderabad AFC, Kenkre FC in the final round of the 2nd Division League.
