Chennai Lions will take on RP-SG Mavericks Kolkata in Tie 13 of Ultimate Table Tennis at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in New Delhi.
Chennai Lions, coming off with 2 wins on the trot, will look to book a spot in playoffs. While Chennai Lions have one more tie left after tonight, Mavericks don't have the same luxury as they will view tonight's clash as a do-or-die encounter.
RP-SG Mavericks had a rocky start and since then, their campaign has been a roller-coaster ride as they won 2 and lost 2. They currently sit at the 4th position with only Chennai Lions, who have a tie in hand and Puneri Paltan below them. This makes tonight's tie a must win for them to stay in the play-offs race.
Manika Batra, Matilda Ekholm and Benedikt Duda have shown some grit in the past few ties but there are few avenues that they would like to explore before going into tonight's tie. Mati has been in scintillating form for the Mavericks and she will eye yet another one against Chennai Lions.
Led by the legendary Sharath Kamal Achanta, Chennai Lions also have everything they need. Tiago Apolonia, Petrissa Solja and Madhurika Patkar, will all eye for their best and book a play-offs berth as early as possible.
Both teams have been in good form this season with Chennai Lions just edging out the other. This season has been a witness to some unexpected results and we will be expecting one such tie tonight.
