Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the India vs Maldives game in the elusive final of the SAFF Suzuki Cup 2018.

India are on a role with three wins in as many games, scoring 7 goals and conceding just once. They got the better of a hapless Pakistani side by 3-1 in the semi-final.

While, Maldives have found their scoring prowess late in the tournament with their only goals coming in the Semi-Final game with Nepal where the Island side won 3-0.

Earlier in the tournament, India did get the better of Maldives with a 2-0 scoreline which puts the Blue Tigers as the favourites today.

The game kicks-off at 6:30 PM IST at the Bangabandu Stadium, Dhaka.
