Nepal U16 vs Palestine U16: Preview
Sep 24, 2017 05:53:31 AM - Nepal U16 vs Palestine U16: Preview

Nepal U16 will take on Palestine U16 in their last match of AFC U16 Championship 2018 Malaysia Qualifiers, today.


Time: 3.30 PM

Venue: APF Halchowk Stadium, Kathmadu

Ticket: Rs.300

Nepal, Palestine, India and Iraq are in the group.

Nepal and Palestine rank 3rd and 4th in the group D. Nepal has a point while Palestine are yet to collect any points. Iraq lead the group with 6 points, while India rank 2nd with 4 points.

Palestine have lost both of their earlier matches. They were defeated 3-0 by India in their first match and Iraq hammered them 4-0 in their second match. With two defeats, they are out from the competition. Palestine are yet to score a goal in this competition and it will be a tough challenge to score one against junior Gorkhalis. Since they are the weakest side in the group, we can predict them to lose against Nepal.

Palestine U16 coach Yahya Jalayta most probably rotate his squad concerning the player’s fitness and injury.

Nepal will be desperate to win the match against Palestine after displaying a good performance against India. Nepal failed to protect their lead and were compelled to share points with India. A goalkeeping blunder cost them all three points against Iraq.

Coach Sunil Kumar Shrestha is expected to play the same attacking game against Palestine.

The 4-3-3 formation is likely to remain unchanged with Birjesh Chaudhary, Ranjan Pun and Akash Budha Magar leading the attack for Nepal.

Injured Sanjib Aryal’s situation is yet to be known, he is likely to be replaced by Ashim Gurung in the defense. We can expect a good performance by the junior Gorkhalis, to win today’s match in the home soil to bolster their chances for the qualification as best runners up.

10 group winners and five best runners up along with the hosts Malaysia will play the final round.
