Venue: Bengaluru’s Sree Kanteerava Stadium.

India take on Nepal in their second match of the  South Asian Football Federation Championship (SAFF Championship) 2023 on Saturday. The match will take place at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru. India began the tournament on a positive note with a thumping 4-0 win over arch-rivals Pakistan at the same stadium. Sunil Chhetri led from the front with a hat-trick of goals while one goal was bagged by Udanta Singh. India were clearly the better team, as a sleepless Pakistan team could not match the skill levels of their neighbours. Later, Pakistan head coach cited visa and immigration issues which led to their late arrival in Bengaluru as the reason behind the loss. 

Coming back to Nepal match, it is India’s last match in the group stage. The Blue Tigers have already qualified for the semi-final courtesy the win over Pakisan. Nepal are ranked 174th in the world. They are lowest-ranked team in the this competition. Nepal are coming in this game after facing a 3-1 defeat against Kuwait in the opening game. Winning against India is a big task but Nepal will be focussing on how they can display better football.
