As the tournament reaches half mark and 74 matches completed, we are still not sure which team will go through the next round. First match of the day will be played between Tamil Thalaivas and U.P.Yoddha.

Tamil team is lying at the bottom of the table with just 16 points in 9 matches. Team led by Ajay Thakur will be hoping to turn their fortunes and go on a winning streak before its home leg. Ajay will be seeking support from K. Prapanjan who is inconsistent till now. Tamil has option of Dong Geon Lee who can shake opposition defence. Defence will be led by Amit Hooda who is one of the best right corners.
