Following Chennai City’s 3-1 win over Churchill Brothers, Aizawl FC and East Bengal have confirmed their place in the last four of the Federation Cup 2017.
Mohun Bagan need a draw to make certain of the semis; they will be unreachable on seven points. They could even lose to Bengaluru FC in their last game if other results go their way.
DSK Shivajians and Bengaluru are currently tied on three points but Shivajians are ahead on head-to-head by virtue of beating Bengaluru 2-0 on Wednesday. If both win their matches it will leave three teams on six points and will boil down to goal difference, where Bengaluru have the edge over Shivajians. If both teams draw it comes to head to head and Shivajians will go through.
For Lajong to go through to the last four, any margin of victory over Shivajians would suffice, as long as Bengaluru are also beaten by Mohun Bagan. It would improve Lajong’s goal difference to a minimum of -1, which would then be superior to both DSK Shivajians and Bengaluru FC.
