The youngest team in the competition(Indian Arrows) will host the newest team in the same(Gokulam Kerala FC). Before the tough fight, LNTUP analyses the performances this season so far of each and every player of both the teams and marks five players who can make a difference in the match.

  1.  Anwar Ali- Anwar Ali is an Indian professional footballer who plays as a central defender for Indian Arrows in the I-League on loan from Minerva Punjab.Singh represented the India under-17 side which participated in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup which was hosted in India. A stern defender as him is likely to stop the likes of Urunov and Mbele. He will be a one to watch out for. 
  2. Edmund Lalrindika- Born in Aizawl, Mizoram, Lalrindika was announced as part of the Bengaluru reserve side for the 2017–18 season. A month later, Lalrindika was selected to play for the Indian Arrows, an All India Football Federation owned team that would comprise of India under-20 players to give them playing time. He made his professional debut for the side in the Arrow’s first match of the season against Chennai City. He started and played 90 minutes as Indian Arrows won 3–0. A forward like him can cause trouble to the Keralite defense with his skills and speed. He will be a man to watch out for.
