NEW DELHI: After losing to Tiddim Road Athletic Union (TRAU) in Imphal, Gokulam Kerala are now in the Capital to face Sudeva Delhi in the Hero I-League 2022-23 at the Chhatrasal Stadium on Monday, March 6, 2023. The match will kick-off at 3:00 pm IST.
Although the first two positions and the two relegated teams have already been identified, all other teams are looking to finish as high as possible on the league table for better seeding in the upcoming Super Cup qualifiers. Currently placed third, Gokulam Kerala will hope for a win that will take them four points clear of fourth-placed Tiddim Road Athletic Union, who will also play on Monday against Mumbai Kenkre.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Gokulam Kerala head coach Francesc Bonet said, “We have our objectives clear and we want to bag the remaining six points and prepare for the Super Cup.”
Despite facing a side who have already been relegated, Bonet believes it will not be an easy game since Sudeva Delhi players will be eager to prove themselves. “I have already told my players that Sudeva will want to prove themselves in the end and it won’t be easy for us,” he said.
Sudeva Delhi head coach Sankarlal Chakraborty said: “We want to do our best in the last home match tomorrow. We also want to provide the young players with more exposure and game time.”
The match between Sudeva Delhi and Gokulam Kerala will be telecast live on Eurosport and Doordarshan Sports and streamed live on the Discovery Plus OTT platform at 3:00 pm IST.
