In preparations for today’s Manipur Derby in the Durand Cup between TRAU FC and NEROCA FC at Khuman Lampak Stadium in Imphal, the Manipur government has declared a half-holiday for all government and educational institutions.
Which teams are playing in the Durand Cup today?
Two of Manipur’s clubs, NEROCA and TRAU will be in action in Match 5 of the Durand Cup 2022.
The evening game of Matchday 3 between the two biggest clubs of Manipur, Neroca FC and Tiddim Road Athletic Union (TRAU) FC is sure to set the Khuman Lampak alight.
A sea of Orange, the Neroca colours, and Red & Green, the TRAU colours, can be expected to further brighten the picturesque venue.
Given the momentous occasion, with the Hon. Chief Minister, Shri. Biren Singh himself being a former Durand winner and passion for football in the State, one can expect a fantastic competitive game.
Both teams finished mid and bottom table in their previous I-League season, with the orange brigade finishing seventh while TRAU finished ninth. However, in a derby game, the two have always fought it out tooth and nail and kept their adoring fans on the edge.
Neroca appears stronger on paper with four foreigners bolstering its line-up from defence to attack while TRAU only have the sublime skills of Tajik Komron Tursunov to fall back upon, in an otherwise talented locally assembled squad.
Thokchom James Singh and Tondomba Singh bring the derby experience to the Orange squad while Manas Pratim Gohain and Bishorjit Singh bring the same for TRAU.
