  • Mohun Bagan XI: Shilton, Echezona, Khongjee, Devadas, Odafa, Yusa, Kotal, Chizoba, Shouvik, Pankaj, Mundampara
  • Salgaocar FC XI: Karanjit, Augustin, Wali, Duffy, Foschini, Rahul, Lamare, Freiman, Francis, Oliveira, Jairu
  • They only need a draw to progress.
  • On the other hand, Bagan are arguably the most in-form outfit in the tournament after their 6-0 drubbing of Shillong Lajong where the score-line could have been much worse for the north east side.
  • Although Bencherifa is now the coach of Bagan, Salgaocar would hope that history doesn’t repeat itself and will look to give a good account of themselves.
  • However a 6-1 thrashing was meted out by Bagan to the Goan side and the Mariners eased into the semi-final.
  • The two teams were on four points each with Salgaocar only needing a draw to progress due to superior goal difference.
  • It must be remembered that back in 2010, Karim Bencherifa’s Salgaocar faced Mohun Bagan in a final group D game with Shillong Lajong and Mumbai FC too in their cluster, like this season.
  • Welcome to the final group C match of the Federation Cup between Salgaocar FC and Mohun Bagan which will determine which team from this group will face Churchill Brothers SC in the semi-finals
