Bangladesh U23 vs Sri Lanka U23 match information

Time: 19:45 (GMT+8) on December 5th

Venue: Dasarath Rangasala Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2019 South Asian Games men's football

Currently, Bangladesh U23 does not have positive results after the first two matches. They lost Bhutan U23, then drew against Maldives U23. As a result, they are at the bottom of the league table with only one point.

Beating Sri Lanka U23 is the only hope for Bangladesh U23 to improve the position because, at the last fixture, they will face the current champion Nepal U23. However, it is not a possible result.

Compared to three years ago, Bangladesh U23 gradually lost the performance, which made them much weaker than other opponents in South Asia.

The proof is they were defeated by Bhutan U23 at the first game of South Asian Games. Consequently, this year Bangladesh U23 will not likely gain a medal as they did in 2016.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka U23 gained a point in the goalless draw against Maldives U23 in the first match. They have the same point with Bangladesh U23 but won thanks to the goal difference.

Because of the fact that India decided not to participate in the men's event, they have a chance to take the bronze medal at this competition. They just need to gain one point in the match versus Bangladesh U23 before considering the next steps in the tournament.

Bangladesh U23 vs Sri Lanka U23 possible lineups:

Bangladesh U23: Anisur Rahman Zico, Bishwanath Ghosh, Rahmat Mia, Yeasin Khan, Riyadul Hasan Rafi, Jamal Bhuyan, Biplu Ahmed, Robiul Hasan, Mohammad Ibrahim, Saad Uddin, Nabib Newaj Jibon.

Sri Lanka U23: Sujan Perera, Duckson Piuslas, Nuwan Gimhana, Pathum Vimukthi, Chamod Dilshan, Manaram Perera, Mohamed Fazal, Joy Nithushan, Mohamed Ishan, Mohamed Shaheel, Aman Faizer.
