Panaji: A crucial match is on the cards as Dempo faces a must-win situation when it takes on bottom-placed Al Faisaly in its last match of group ‘E’ of the AFC Cup at Nehru stadium here on Tuesday.
With Al Majd, the first team from this group to find a berth in the knock out stage after beating Dempo in its last match at home, the second team to make it to the quarterfinals stage will be decided on Tuesday.
Dempo, which is three points behind Al Majd, needs a victory against Al Faisaly to qualify.
While Al Muharraq is third with six points, it needs a win against Al Majd and would hope Dempo lose to Al Faisaly which will catapult it to second spot behind Al Majd with nine points. — PTI
