The Blasters finished second on the points table with 12 points while the Raiders finished third, with 10 points to their credit at the end of the league stages.
These two sides have already met each other twice in the league stage, with Bokaro winning both the games. The Blasters will take heart with the fact that they won one game while chasing and the other while defending, which will give them the upper hand going into this game.
