Nepal U23 topped the round-robin stage with four consecutive undefeated matches, winning three of them. They are also the team that scores the most goals as well as concede the least.

As a result, Nepal U23 is the strongest team in the men's football event of South Asian Games at the moment, especially when India decided not to participate in it. Consequently, securing the gold medal seems to be a very easy task for coach Bal Gopal Maharjan and his players.

In the case of Bhutan U23, they currently have a three winnings streak, which made them advance to the semi-finals. However, it will be very difficult for Bhutan U23 to win against Nepal U23 in an official match.

Compared to the host nation, they are not only weaker but also easily lose when two teams face each other. At the round-robin stage, Bhutan U23 was defeated by Nepal U23 by a 0-4 score. It is possible that Bhutan U23 players could not play well when they were pressured by thousands of fans supporting their opponent.
