TRAU vs NRC Dream11: In what will be the first-ever Imphal Derby in I-League, debutants TRAU FC host NEROCA at Khuman Lampak Stadium on Wednesday. Both the teams share the ground and are based in the same city. So there will be no home advantage for either team, with the fixture more like a friendly derby.
TRAU are propping up the table and remain without a win five games into the season. With just three goals scored, they have the most toothless attack in the league, while the defence has shipped a league-high nine goals. That said, TRAU managed to hold Real Kashmir and Minerva Punjab to draws, with the latter producing the season's frist clean sheet. So the improvement should give hosts some lift heading into this game. NEROCA, on the other hand, are 9th on the table, three points better than their city rivals.
