RoundGlass Punjab FC Vs Aizawl FC

Following Sreenidi Deccan’s 2-0 win over Rajasthan United on Sunday, the Deccan Warriors have built a three-point advantage over RoundGlass Punjab FC, and in the Hero I-League 2022-23 title race, the ball will be again in the court of Staikos Vergetis’ side, who will take on the 2016-17 Champions Aizawl FC at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium on Monday, February 13, 2023, with kickoff slated for 4:30 pm IST.

Mumbai Kenkre FC Vs Sudeva Delhi FC

Mumbai Kenkre FC have found some late form in the Hero I-League. They surprised everyone on January 23, beating table-toppers Sreenidi Deccan 2-1. Then they lost to Gokulam Kerala by a solitary goal and held the mighty RoundGlass Punjab to a 3-3 draw. They fought hard even in the last match, before going down to NEROCA in Imphal. As a result, Akhil Kothari’s boys now have a realistic chance of moving out of the relegation zone.

If they manage to beat Sudeva Delhi here at the Cooperage Stadium on Monday, they will be on 17 points, just one behind Rajasthan United. If a few other results favour them and they play as good as they did against the top three teams in this second leg, Kenkre could avoid the drop. That will be the biggest motivation for tomorrow’s match.

Things had been tough for bottom side Sudeva Delhi right from the start. But with the introduction of Tajik forward Shavkati Khotam and Argentine forward Alexis Gomez, coach Sankarlal Chakraborty has found some firepower up front. That has influenced his team’s performance in the last few matches, earning them the first win this season, against Rajasthan United. Nevertheless, Sudeva are still languishing at the foot of the Hero I-League table with only six points in 15 matches. A win tomorrow will give them some hope for survival.
