Bagan meet Viva Kerala tomorrow! Bhaichung may not play!

Bagan tomorrow play Viva Kerala in their quarter final match. In the 1st Quarter final today Mahindra won the match against Sporting Clube de Goa on penalties.
Bagan faced Viva Kerala last time in the last Fed Cup. That was the opener where Bagan thumped 4 goals. Tomorrow the scenario is different. Viva Kerala which is one of the National league teams have alread beaten Air India 2-1 in the previous match and they are on a high and will try to put their best foot forward.
However, the frown on Periera's forehead is ever so increasing. First, the unpleasing performance of the team in the first match against ONGC and now the Bagan skipper, Bhaichung Bhutia is down with fever. He did not practice with the team today however an earnest attempt will be made to field Bhaichung failing which Lalampuia, who has received a call from the National Camp will start off with Barreto.
Tomorrow Bagan's match is scheduled to be held at 4.00 pm IST followed by the match between JCT and Kingfisher East Bengal.
