Colombo FC favoured over Sea Hawks

7 March, 2021

Sea Hawks will confront Colombo FC while Ratnam will take on Defenders in their Pre-League tournament football matches scheduled to kickoff at the Sugathadasa Stadium today commencing 5 pm.

Colombo FC after two comprehensive wins in this competition so far will go out as strong contenders to win the game having raised their morale by defeating the star-studded Up Country Lions last week 3-1.

Sea Hawks are yet to make amends in this tournament although coming close to winning their curtain raiser which ended in a draw.

Ratnam after a 2-0 win over Blue Star last week are tipped to be the favourites to win this game with a mix of foreign and young talented local players in their ranks.

Their rivals Defenders drew their last week’s fixture against Red Star after the curtain raiser match was canceled due to an official and two players of their opponent Renown tested positive for Covid-19.

Today’s match will be a tough encounter for them but nevertheless they are capable of turning tables. (AN)
