One of Indian football biggest spenders, Prayag United will host Shillong Lajong FC at the Salt Lake Stadium on Friday, in what will be the 25th Round of the I-league. This will also be Lajong’s penultimate game of the season, and the Reds will take nothing less than a win against a side which they beat 3-2 at Shillong, in a pulsating encounter.
The Reds are coming into the match after a morale boosting 2-0 win against Mumbai FC, and will seek to carry their good form to Kolkata as well, having fared quite well against the top three Kolkatan sides(unbeatable against Mohun Bagan,East Bengal and Prayag United thus far).
Prayag United will be quite upbeat about their form too, having thumped Pailan Arrows by 4 goals, and it will surely make for an interesting and even encounter at the Salt Lake Stadium.
Shillong Lajong Coach Thangboi Singto said,”It is a crucial game and it is very important to get 3 points. We need to go with the right approach and give a good performance. It is a must win game tomorrow. The best line-up will take the field.”
The match will be live on Ten Action at 3:30PM.
