Defending champions Karnataka went down to Manipur in their third Group B game of 77th Santosh Trophy at the Golden Jubilee Stadium, in Itanagar, on Monday, February 26, 2024.


Ngangbam Pacha Singh scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot in the 50th minute.


This result puts a severe dent in the defending champions’ chances for qualification to the quarter-finals, as they remain at the rock bottom of Group B with just two points from three matches. While they will have their work cut out in their last two matches against Railways and Maharashtra, who are in their own battles for qualification, one win will put them right back on track.


While with today’s win, Manipur climbed to the top of Group B. The side from the Northeast have now collected seven points from their three games, and are three points clear atop Group B.


Karnataka will take on Railways on Thursday, February 29.
