Real Kashmir will clash with Mohun Bagan in the second semifinal of the Durand Cup at the Salt Lake Stadium on Wednesday. The summit clash is slated for Saturday.
Seven months after they had beaten them 2-1 in an impressive debut season in the I-League, Real Kashmir will be meeting the Mariners at the same venue.
The Snow Leopards, who finished third in their debut I-League season, did not have a pre-season back home due to the restrictions in the valley following the revocation of the state's special status.
The Real Kashmir players were cut off from their family due to the communication clampdown in the valley.
Still, the David Richardson-coached 29-member contingent, with five players from Kashmir and one from Jammu, kept its date with the Durand Cup.
But their real big test will be when they take on the 16-time champions Mohun Bagan, a Spanish-flavoured side coached by Kibu Vicuna.
The Mariners have recruited four Spaniards with Salva Chamorro spearheading the attack, while Francisco Gonzalez and Joseba Beitia will be in charge of the midfield, with Morante holding the backline.
While Mohun Bagan effortlessly entered the semifinals with three wins in a row, they have been winless from two matches in the Calcutta Football League Premier Division A, where they are the defending champions.
