Time: 19:30 (GMT+8) on February 19th

Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium

Competition: 2020 I-League

After snatched the I-League 2nd Division title in the 2017/2018 season to earn a promoting spot, Real Kashmir continued their fairy tail in the following season and astonishingly finished 3rd in their first presence at the Indian top-flight league.

However, the honeymoon seemed to come to an end in the 2019/2020 season as the Snow Leopards has been struggling at the middle of the table. Despite their leading goal scorer Mason Lee Robertson, who is a defender, netting five times and being in the top 10 goal scorers of the league, Real Kashmir is still the second-worst team in terms of producing goals.

Their lack of firepower is compensated by the solid defence system, which is currently the best in the league, conceding just nine goals until now.

This tight defensive line will be put to the test when they face the second-best attacking side in the league with 19 goals - Churchill Brothers. Nevertheless, The Red Machines is demonstrating an unstable form with three defeats in the last five matches and ranking 5th out of 11 teams on the table, just one rank higher than Real Kashmir.

The impressive goal scoring form of their captain striker Willis Deon Plaza, who is the 3rd best scorer in the competition with 6 goals, contributed largely to the formidable attacking power.

The two sides encountered twice in the 2018/2019 season and all ended without a winner. In spite of the home advantage, Churchill Brothers will surely have another tough match, in which they have to be their best to get a good result.
