It has been an impressive campaign for Railway Sports Promotion Board as they have won all four of their Pool ‘A’ matches in the competition, scoring 21 goals and just conceding once in the process. While Punjab & Sind Bank will have their task cut-out as they have only registered two victories from their respective four matches, drawing the other two. 

The two teams had met in the final match last year which turned out to be a close encounter as Railway Sports Promotion Board emerged victorious after winning 3-0 in the penalty Shoot-out, with the scores being tied at 1-1 after regulation time. However, Punjab & Sind Bank will hope that their Satbir Singh can help his team in overcoming the tough challenge.
