The Indian squad is missing big names such as Sunil Chhetri, Jeje Lalpekhlua, and the younger players of the national team, being led by Subhashish Bose, are being given an opportunity to prove their mettle.

Meanwhile, in Group A, the hosts Bangladesh have been in terrific form, winning both their matches to secure 6 points. Nepal and Pakistan have won a match each out of their two games played, with Bhutan losing both their encounters.

The Indian national football team boasts of a good record against the side they are about to face next, Maldives. Out of the 18 times the two sides have met before, India have won 13, 2 games were drawn and 3 were won by Maldives.

Their latest encounter was in the SAFF Championship 2015 itself where the Blue Tigers emerged on top. Sunil Chhetri scored a goal and Jeje netted a brace in the 3-2 win for India back then. Whether or not the new look team will be able to continue the dominance against Maldives, only time will tell.
