    The home side in orange kick us off today
  • Shillong Lajong XI: Ralte (gk), Passah, Son (c), Milan, Glen, Matsugae, Lallawmzuala, B. Haokip, Tuboi, Tlang, Fanai
  • Sporting Clube de Goa XI: Kumar (gk), Devrani, Keenan, Gonzalo, Kalu, Garcia, Jovel, Mauvin, Rojen (c), Karpeh
  • We've got the line-ups for today's clash...
  • So while the the approach to the game from Sporting Goa's perspective has already been set, Lajong now have their own title ambitions and will no doubt look to prove their worth against the second placed team
  • Shillong Lajong meanwhile have quietly crept up the table to third, just a point behind the team they challenge in this particular round. It's been a great run of form from a team who critics wrote off early in the season as mere mid-table scrappers.
  • Win, and Sporting have a chance to close the gap on Bengaluru FC at the top of the table to just three points whereas a loss would put them six points behind the runaway leaders of the campaign so far.
  • The Flaming Oranje had beaten the north eastern outfit 1-0 in the reverse fixture but have their work cut against a team who have a near perfect away record
  • It's going to be a brawl for second as the duo look to harbour their title hopes. Are you ready for the round 15 I-League clash between Sporting Clube de Goa and Shillong Lajong FC?
