    I'm Anselm Noronha bringing to you the kick-off and the Live updates from the Duler stadium as Gilbert Oliveira shoots wide off the home side's first attempt
  • Pune FC subs: Tabia, Venkatesh, Z Ralte, Anthony, Debnath (gk), Lalrempuia, T Haokip
  • Salgaocar FC subs: Leny, Milagres, Marcus, Tsewang, Felix (gk), Rahul, Brian
  • Pune FC: Amrinder (gk), Gurjinder, Riga, Arata, Meyer, Piere, Edathodika (c), Kadam, Akhtar, Ranjan, Ramu
  • Salgaocar FC: Karanjit (gk), Fulganco, Augustin, Wali, Duffy, Gnakpe, Foschini, Lamare, Clifton, Francis (c), Oliveira
  • STAT: If Pune FC have the meanest defence, having let in only three goals (four less than any other team) with five clean sheets, the Goans have the best attack in the league so far with 16 goals (four more than any other team).
  • Both teams have played out a draw in a pre-season friendly at the same venue in August, but Pune FC hold the head-to-head record of winning all four previous meetings with the hosts in the I-League which calls for an exiting tie.
  • Although Pune FC have conceded less than half the number of goals as compared to any of their competitors in the league, their weakness was exposed in the 2-0 defeat to Sporting Clube de Goa in an away match at the Duler stadium which Mike Snoei's men will be looking to rectify.
  • Salgaocar FC, with 17 points from eight matches, are just a point ahead of Pune FC who have a game in hand. Nonetheless, both teams share the highest number of wins (five) and lowest number of defeats (one) in this season.
  • The Goan side are up against the team who have the best defensive record in the I-League, in a top of the table clash
  • Will Derrick Pereira mastermind a victory over his former side? Of course, time will tell!
