Second Division i-League Qualification Scenarios explained for Rangdajied United and Bhawanipore SC

Battle for second Qualification slot is intense between Rangdajied United and Bhawanipore SC


We try to explain how the qualification scenario can shape up with only a match remaining and with Mohammedan Sporting already qualified, Rangdajied United and Bhawanipore SC are set for an exciting dual. 

Current Standings:

The fixtures:

27.04.2013
Rangdajied United vs Mohammedan Sporting
27.04.2013
Mumbai Tigers vs Bhawanipore Club

As it stands, there are three scenarios:

If Rangdajied United Wins..

Rangdajied United goes to 19 points and Mohammedan Sporting - 18 points both qualify. Bhawanipore SC fails to qualify.

If Rangdajied United manages to get a draw..

Then Rangdajied United goes to 17 points and If Bhawanipore Wins then Bhawanipore go through (with better goal difference) else Rangdejied go through. Bhawanipore's win will automatically give them a better goal difference as both have same goal difference as of now(+4) and Randgajied United's goal difference does not improve with a drawHead to Head does not count as both teams won once against each other (1-0 victory for both).

If Rangdajied United Loose..

Then Bhawanipore will need no less than a win to secure a place in the next season i-League.


The fight for the second slot is very interesting with Bhawanipore from Kolkata and Rangdajied United from Meghalaya need to see out their final match in order to secure the other qualification slot. Rangdajied United has the upper hand as a win for them will ensure a qualification.

Lets wait and see who goes through.
