“We have a very difficult game ahead of us against one of the strongest sides. They have shown in their previous games how difficult it is to face them in their home. But, we are concentrated and focused on our target of getting a good result out of this game,” said RGPFC head coach Staikos Vergetis during the pre-match press conference.

RGPFC top scorer Luka Majcen, who was not fit for their last match will lead the attacking line consisting of Daniel Lalhlimpuia, Brandon Vanlalremdika, Juan Mera and Samuel Lalmuanpuia and look to put pressure on a tough Real Kashmir defence.

“We are here competing for the title and our target tomorrow is to get the three points. Every match is an important one when you’re competing to be on top of the table. We are well prepared for the match tomorrow and hope it will be an exciting match,” said RGPFC goalkeeper Kiran Kumar Limbu.
