Match day is here and it’s once again Sri Lanka to play their 2nd game against the energetic Nepal. It will be Sri Lanka’s only night game in this SAFF Championship.
Golden Army faced a tough loss against Bangladesh in the opener will look to bounce back into rhythm while Nepal who won against host and defending Champions Maldives will look on to take the 3 points to stay up in contingent for spot in the final.
Sri lanka will need to revamp the line up today, both technical and tactically as Duckson Puislas will not be available today due to his red card. Furthermore attempting of using defensive players in the attacking positions may have not given dividends to Sri Lanka.
Experience campaigners Fazal, Edison will be key for today’s game if include as Golden Army lacks creativity in the middle.
Nepal will look strong with having confidence defeating Maldives in their opening fixture. Gorkhalis does have a balance team with their skipper Keron Chemchong leading the team, Anatana tamang and Rohit Chand have been guarding the goal quite well. Nepal opt to play using their flanks therefore the wings are expected to be quick and pacey.
It will be well worthy contest to watch for both Sri Lankan and Nepalese on which team come out victorious in the full time whistle
Kick off will be at 9.30 (LK time)
