Two Islanders are locking horns today in SAFF Championship 2018.
The match will be played at 6:45 PM at Bangabndhu stadium.
The Maldives, who could only play one friendly match against Qatar in preparation for the tournament, will be fielding fresh legs against the Sri Lankans who have begun their SAFF Suzuki Cup campaign on a losing note against India.
"We're concentrating on the issues we had on the midfield and working on improving in the goalkeeping department too," said Sri Lanka Head Coach Nizam Packeer Ali, shedding light on how he would prepare for the next game after his team's 0-2 defeat against India.
India have already won their first match, beating Sri Lanka 2-0.
