Shillong Lajong FC vs. Namdhari FC: Winning Prediction

Current Form

With a confirmed spot in the upcoming I-League season, Shillong Lajong aims to conclude the current season on a positive note. Their final match is scheduled for Saturday at SSA Ground No. 1 (Polo Grounds) against Namdhari, who are engaged in a crucial battle to avoid relegation.

Shillong Lajong currently holds the sixth position with 16 points, scoring 15 goals and conceding 14. In their recent I-League encounter at TRC Polo Synthetic Turf Ground, they suffered a 3-1 defeat against Real Kashmir.

Namdhari, on the other hand, secured a 2-1 victory over TRAU at Kalyani Stadium, breaking a six-match winless streak. Despite the win, they find themselves in 11th place with eight points, just one point above the relegation zone, and have one match remaining.

Recent Perfomance

This upcoming fixture marks the first-ever meeting between Shillong Lajong and Namdhari in the I-League. Renan de Souza has been a standout performer for Shillong, leading the team with three goals, including a crucial first goal in a match. For Namdhari, Imanol Arana has been their most prolific player, finding the net twice.

In their recent six league matches, Shillong has won three, drawn one, and lost two, while Namdhari has won one, drawn one, and lost four. The clash promises to be a significant encounter with Shillong Lajong aiming for a strong finish and Namdhari fighting to secure their position in the league.


While Shillong Lajong’s recent losses raise a slight doubt, their home advantage, consistent scoring, and Namdhari’s away woes tip the scales in their favor. Lajong will likely control the game and create the better chances. Based on current form and recent performances, we predict a Shillong Lajong FC victory, possibly with a scoreline of 2-1 or 3-1.
