TAL Season 3: Division 2 Gameweek 10 Preview – TAL “Crystal Ball”
8:00 AM –FC Bengal v FC Brunton
FC Bengal and FC Brunton face off in the first game of the day. FC Bengal have been displaced from second place by Athlos although they have a game in hand. They will look to reclaim that spot and even have the chance to go on top, with Al-Fateh playing a tough game against Diablos FC. FC Brunton meanwhile, have nothing much but pride to play for as they are assured of a mid-table finish.
Crystal Ball: FC Bengal (3) – (1) FC Brunton
9:30 AM – Diablos FC v Al-Fateh
The blockbuster game of the day is up next when leaders Al-Fateh take on 4th placed Diablos FC. This will be a crucial game for both sides and a potential six-pointer. Al-Fateh need atleast a win and a draw in their final two games to secure the title and with FC Bengal having a far easier fixture list, the importance of this game cannot be underlined. Diablos too, need as many points as they can garner in their bid for promotion adding to the intrigue in this clash.
Crystal Ball: Diablos FC (1) – (1) Al-Fateh
11:00 AM – Netbusters FC v Titans FC
Promotion contenders Titans FC meet Netbusters in the third game of the day in what should be an easy win for the Titans outfit. Netbusters have been dismal this season and will find it difficult to deal with the talent in their opposition’s ranks. That Titans have a realistic shot at the promotion play-off spot will only give them more impetus to go out and get all three points.
Crystal Ball: Netbusters FC (0) – (3) Titans FC
12:30 PM – FC Sparta Bengaluru v FC Lawless
FCB Sparta will want to keep their mathematical chances of securing the final play-off spot alive when they take on FC Lawless in the final match before lunch.
Whatever the result maybe FCB Sparta will be given credit for their passionate performances that have won them many supporters. FC Lawless though, will look to take a cue from their opponents as they look to prepare for next season. For now though, Sparta remain firm favorites to take all three points from this one.
Crystal Ball: FC Sparta Bengaluru (2) – (0) FC Lawless
2:15 PM – Grasshoppers FC v FC Kudlu
We conclude a truncated day in TAL with the game between Grasshoppers FC and FC Kudlu. Both teams have had disappointing season and are in 9th and 10th place respectively. Grasshoppers will view this game as one of their last chances at redemption but recent form suggests that they will need to convert the goal scoring opportunities they are presented with. Kudlu, too will view this as a chance to improve their gameplay as they prepare for next season. All this should make up for a tight encounter, one that Kudlu have the potential to win
Crystal Ball: Grasshoppers FC (1) – (2) FC Kudlu
