On Friday, defending champions Gokulam Kerala will head to the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Mizoram to clash against the Aizawl FC in the I-league. Gokulam will be on the hunt for their next win after reigning supreme against Mohammedan in their tournament opener. Their Northeastern opponents will be on the quest for their first win of the season after drawing against TRAU FC.
Gokulam started off their title defence in style, edging past the Kolkata-based club in an intense 1-0 encounter. Their prolific forward Auguste Junior Boumsomlaga scored the first goal for the champions in the 57th minute of the opener. A thunderous strike from the Cameroonian helped the Malabarians to secure all three points. With manager Richard Towa at the helm of things, Gokulam will be vying to secure a hattrick of I-league titles this season.
Meanwhile, it wasn’t an ideal start to their campaign for Aizawl FC as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their northeastern neighbours TRAU FC. After going a goal down in the first half, Aizawl came quickly out of the box as K Lalrinfela’s strike levelled the scores in the 48th minute. The Mizoram side pushed hard in the second half but they couldn’t find the deciding goal and had to settle for a point.
Gokulam seem slight favourites heading into the match but with the crowd behind them, Aizawl might pack a punch or two on Friday.
