Ambernath United Atlanta FC is gearing up to face off against Dempo SC in their second away game within a span of four days on Sunday, April 2nd, 2023.
The upcoming match between AUA FC and Dempo SC promises to be an exhilarating contest as both teams aim to chase down ARA FC, who currently sit atop Group D with 8 points from their four matches played.
Just two days ago, AUA FC was involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Goa Reserves, narrowly missing the opportunity to close the gap on ARA FC at the summit of Group D. Despite falling behind within the first ten minutes, AUA FC displayed remarkable resilience by overturning the scoreline and taking a 2-1 lead in the subsequent 10 minutes. However, they were once again pegged back to 2-2 as they headed into the halftime break on level terms. AUA FC managed to take the lead midway through the second half, going 3-2 ahead, only to see Goa Reserves equalize once more, resulting in both teams sharing a point at the final whistle.
On the other hand, Dempo SC secured a goalless draw against ARA FC just a day prior to this upcoming encounter. Following that match, Dempo SC had accumulated 5 points from three matches played, while ARA FC remained at the top of Group D with 8 points from their four matches.
With the 3-3 draw against Goa Reserves, AUA FC now finds themselves with 5 points from three matches and will be aiming to secure all three points in their upcoming battle against Dempo SC on Sunday.
