With I-League 3 played in the Garden City without much buzz, Group D host, Sporting Club Bengaluru (SCB) thrashed Daoba United FC 6-0 in their previous game to make it an exciting final Group game against Diamond Harbour Football Club (DHFC) on Monday, 3 PM.
In another game played Saturday morning, Diamond Harbour Football Club earned a late win against resilient Abbas Union FC.
With both teams winning all three of their group games, SCB vs DHFC makes it a virtual final of this group.
I-League 3 is a new addition by the AIFF in the Indian football league system, which apparently forms the fourth tier, after ISL, I-League, and I-League 2.
Five groups comprising of five teams are playing I League 3 in a single-legged round robin format with the group topper moving forward to the final round.
Barring Group D, formalities have already been completed - Sporting Clube de Goa (Group A), KLASA FC (Group B), Dempo Sports Club (Group C), and Kerala United FC (Group E) have made the final cut.
