Gokulam Kerala take on Bashundhara Kings in their third AFC Cup 2022 Group D match at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday, May 24.
The Malabarians, coached by Vincenzo Alberto Annese, began their AFC Cup 2022 campaign with a 4-2 win over fellow Indian team ATK Mohun Bagan but went down to Maziya in a narrow 0-1 defeat. Vincentian forward Cornelius Stewart scored the lone goal of the fixture in the 50th minute.
Gokulam Kerala must win their final group game by at least two or more goals than ATKMB if they are to qualify for the inter-zone playoff semi-finals as Group D winners.
Bashundhara Kings, meanwhile, are also coming off a defeat in their recent AFC Cup 2022 assignment.
A hat-trick from Liston Colaco and a 77th-minute strike from forward David Williams condemned the Kings to a 0-4 thrashing at the hands of ATK Mohun Bagan. Despite registering the most shots in the game (17), Bashundhara Kings failed to convert them and now sit rock-bottom in the group with a goal difference of -3.
