Tonight, United BML and MPL will be clashing in a “do or die” game in the Semi-finals of CMC 2017.MPL advanced to quite comfortably eliminating every obstacle they faced so far. In that regard, they advanced to R16 as top team of the group and eliminated four times champion STO RC, who advanced to the R16 as top team of their group, by 6-3. This shows MPL’s potential to lift the trophy.
On the other hand, United BML has shown their potential to lift the cup. They came Semi-final eliminating STELCO on penalty competition. In the group stage, they beat all the teams and advanced as top team of the group.
In the other match, MACL will meet MRDC who has shown a great performance. They have crushed every team stood against them so far in the tournament. Like MPL, they hold an unbeaten record in CMC 2017. MACL has so far lost only their first game against United BML, in the group stage. Since then, MACL seems untouchable.
As the teams are desperate to keep the trophy on their side, the teams will fight to overcome the obstacles that would result in fast paced vigorous game. Based on the past performance, MRDC and MPL are likely to be on the finals. But United BML and MACL are not easy to be defeated as they have improved their performance from game to game. The devastating blow for MACL is that they are forced to play without crucial first division players in their team due to restriction imposed on them from their club.
