Story So Far:
Back to winning ways against Churchill Brothers FC after hiccups against Guardian Angels SC & FC Goa, the Eagles will be looking to make a huge statement against a second-place Salgaocar FC, who with a game in hand are yet to make a single mistake this Pro League campaign. Winning every game they have played this season, the visitor will come against an Eagle side who will be looking to swap places and jump to second with a win today.
Having played a game less, Salgaocar FC currently sits in second place with 9 points in 3 games.
With a perfect record that includes scoring 10 and conceding none, the visitors will come across a youthful eagle side that will be brimming with confidence after their 2-0 win against former title winners, Churchill Brothers SC. With the boys high on confidence, a win against Salgaocar FC would catapult them to second place, two points behind table-toppers Vasco SC.
Vice- Versa, a win for the visitors would see them go joint first, level with points with Vasco.
With all to play for, both teams will be well aware of the significance of today’s matchup and the butterfly effect it will have on the entire league. With the gap between first and fourth place just five points, a lot of shuffling can be expected in the top half of the table by the end of the contest.
Dempo Sports Club currently sits in fourth place ( one game in hand) with 7 points.
