Mumbai Magicians take on UP Wizards in a do-or-die clash

The fact that the Magicians thrashed the Wizards 4-0 in their previous meeting, the home team's lone win in 10 games, should boost their confidence ahead of the do-or-die clash.

Mumbai: It's a make-or-break situation for hosts Mumbai Magicians when they take on another struggling outfit Uttar Pradesh Wizards in their penultimate round-robin game in the Hockey India League in Mumbai on Tuesday.

It's a straight race for the fourth and final semifinal spot between these two teams following the Wizards' 0-3 defeat against high-flying Delhi Waveriders on Sunday at Lucknow.

A loss, which would be their 10th, against the Lucknow franchise would end the Magicians' hopes of reaching the semifinals, while a win would keep them afloat with slim hopes of advancing to the last four at the cost of their UP rivals.
