Odisha FC and Sethu FC FC have already qualified for the quarterfinals of the Indian Women’s League from Group B. Yet, both teams will be eager to prove a point or two when they meet each other in their concluding group league tie on Saturday, May 13.
The outcome of the match will determine the group winners, and both teams will be eager to have that tagline on their backs while preparing for bigger battles at the knockout stage. The match kicks off at 4.30pm IST at the TransStadia in Ahmedabad.
Sethu FC are still unbeaten in the competition and have won all their six matches barring one, where they were held to a draw by Kickstart FC. They currently have 16 points from six matches. Odisha FC, on the other hand, are trailing the group leaders by a point.
Crispin Chhetri, the Odisha FC head coach, knows a thing or two about his opponents for tomorrow. Having taken Sethu FC to a podium finish in the IWL last season, Crispin feels that his previous employers will always hold a special place in his heart.
He was full of praise for Sethu FC while speaking to the media on the eve of the match. “Sethu FC must be the youngest team in this edition of the IWL. But we want to go to the knockout stages with winning momentum. We aim to rotate a few players in the starting eleven to determine the best eleven before our knockout games.”
