Salgaocar start title defense with win
Salgaocar started their title defense on a positive note by getting the better of big spenders Prayag United SC 1-0 in their Group D engagement at the JRD Tata Sports Complex on Thursday.

Anthony D’Souza scored the only goal for the defending champions in the 54th minute. With this match Salgaocar have three points.

After a goalless first half, United SC could have taken the lead early on in after the breather. But Ranty Martins bungled from close range. For Salgaocar though D’Souza made the most of a poor clearance in the 64th minute.  Meanwhile, Pune FC edged past first timers United Sikkim by a solitary goal to log all three points in their first match of the Federation Cup. The first half was goalless with very little opportunities for both the teams. The deadlock was broken early in the second half as Jeje prodded home in the 51st minute.
