After witnessing some dramatic and upset results, the group-stage actions of the ongoing 1st Pi Niangzen Trophy 2019 has entered its zenith and today’s fixtures could send two clubs into the quarter-finals with surprise-package Vengnuam United Sporting(VENUS) taking on Konsham FC for what is going to be a crunch first round fixture and later in the afternoon, Dark-horse FC Zion will be taking on free-scoring SYMROPIA FC for what is going to be a mouth-watering Group B clash at Lamka Public Ground, Churachandpur.
The first match of the day between VENUS and Konsham FC will be a do-or-die match for both sides but VENUS claim upper advantage as a draw will send them through to the quarter-finals while Konsham FC must beat VENUS to make progress into the next round. The winners of this match will be emerging Group-A winners ahead of already qualified Lamka Sports Club.
VENUS attracted public attention when they held Lamka SC in their opening group match and to prove that their good result against the District Super League outfit was not a fluke, they stunned District champions Ganggam Soccer Club 2-0 in their second match and all eyes will be on them today whether they could continue their giant-killing instinct against a well-experienced side Konsham FC. Meanwhile, Konsham FC underlined their intent to go far in the tournament with a stunning 1-0 victory over Ganggam Soccer Club in the opening match of the tournament but a painful 3-2 lost to Lamka SC in their following match dented chances of making through to the quarter-finals but today, they have one last chance to prove their readiness to challenge the title when they take on VENUS – a fixture which become a must-win for them to go through to the quarter-finals.
_The second match of the day between SYMROPIA FC and FC Zion promised to be a fascinating one with the latter bidding a place for the quarter-finals while SYMROPIA FC are already through to the Last-8. With both sides having a terrific campaign, a win for either side will send them through to the next round as Group B winners but a draw end to a match will send both teams through to the next round but make SYMROPIA FC as Group winners. Regarding the build-up to this match, SYMROPIA FC manager Pauminthang Simte asserted that his side will give its all to claim three points and that his charge will not be taking the match as granted despite having advanced to the next round._
_SYMROPIA FC opened the tournament with a resounding 5-2 victory over Bungmual YC and that was followed by a 12-2 victory over Guolkilungtuok FC while FC Zion thrashed Guokilungtuok FC 6-1 in their opening group match but held 1-1 by Bungmual YC in their second group match. A lost for FC Zion today will give big advantage for Bungmual YC._
