League: SAFF Championship

Venue: Sree Kanteerava Stadium

Time: 24th June, 7:30 pm

Nepal vs India Preview:

Its time for the second game in the SAFF Championship 2023. Nepal will be looking to turn things around as their first game did not go according to plan. They lost against Kuwait on Wednesday. Despite Anjan Bista’s spectacular goal in the second half of the game, they lost by a score of 3-1. However, with two games left in the group stage against India and Pakistan respectively, they will still be hopeful of making the top two and qualifying for the next round. To do that, however, they will need to get past India which is no easy task. The two teams have faced each other fifteen times and India has gotten the better of Nepal ten times. All of this while Nepal have only managed to win one of the games. Therefore, a miracle will be needed for Nepal to win this one.

Moving on to the host nation, India, they are loving life right now. They breezed past Pakistan in the first game winning the game 4-0 which puts them at the top of the table due to goal difference and they will be looking to carry this form into the second game which is not good news for Nepal. Captain Sunil Chettri scored a hattrick. It was the 38-year-olds 90th international goal in 138 games which puts him just behind some greats including Ronaldo, Messi and Ali Daei in international goals. Winning this game for India would pretty much guarantee qualification for the next round which should be a driving force for them to play at their best in this game.
