With minutes away from the kick-off, let us have a look at the line-ups

14:51 (IST)25 MAR 2018

The rampant Bengal side will look to use their home advantage to get the better of Chandigarh, in their third match of the main draw of the Santosh Trophy, at the Mohun Bagan Ground in Kolkata, today. 

Bengal have been on blistering form this campaign, as they romped home to a 3-0 victory against Manipur in their first match, before completing a 5-1 rout of Maharashtra. 

Despite some uncertainty over a few key players being dropped, the defending champions have managed to find their steps right from the start, and have won it all so far. Captain Jiten Murmu, who plays for Mohammedan Sporting, was not present with the squad in the lead up to the tournament but has been in form, ever since he joined them. 

Chandigarh, on the other hand, have only managed a draw against Group A’s bottom side Manipur and will be looking for a win, to give themselves a chance for semi-final qualification.
